Some Thoughts on Kissing

As noted here over time, my husband and I are putting more effort into our sex life now that our kids are relatively self-sufficient and let us sleep a lot more than they used to.

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.

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”).

What to do About Changing Libido During Menopause

Let’s talk about sex, baby. Let’s talk about you and me.” That old Salt-n-Pepa song is probably not the tune stuck in your head when you’re going through menopause. And for good reason.
