How to Ask for What you Want in a Relationship

My biggest pet peeve is feeling ignored. My partner’s greatest weakness is not paying attention. I’m sure you can see how that makes for some annoying moments in our relationship. Actually, annoying is an understatement. It drives me crazy when I say something and get no response.

4 Ways Your Relationship Gets Better Once the Kids are grown

When I was a new mom, I dreaded the first time that my daughter said she hated me. I was sure it would break my heart and strip all of my maternal confidence away. Inevitably, it happened. She was coloring on a wall (as young kids do) and I told her to stop. In her little 4-year-old voice, she looked me dead in the eye and said it: I hate you.

Where to Have Sex

When I was a teenager, I used to babysit my cousins so my aunt and uncle could go out and have sex in the back of their minivan. I remember hanging out with my aunt while she prepared for one such outing. She lined the van’s backend with blankets and spritzed it with Calvin Klein’s Obsession. She raised one eyebrow at me and said, “Don’t tell your mom this is what we do when you babysit.”

Why you Need to Talk About Sex

Sex, though it appears everywhere from magazine covers to movies, is a taboo topic in our society for many reasons. One of these is the perception that talking about sex makes you too sexual (which is really not a thing, by the way). Another reason people find sex talk to be off limits is because we’ve been told to feel guilty or embarrassed about it—having it, wanting it, and even wanting it in a different way than you have it (or in a way that strays from what is considered “normal”).

Let’s Talk About Sex


A funny thing occurred to me the other night. I was having a drink with my friend Molly, who I’ve known since we met in Sunday school at age seven, and she was complaining about how her husband falls asleep on the couch after dinner every night. I knew that what she was really saying was, “Why won’t he stay awake and have sex with me?” But since we weren’t about to go and have a conversation about sex with her husband, we spent some time joking about various ways to keep him awake and then called it a night.
