Sex After Marriage. What's Normal?


March 30, 2014 - 8:19pm — ShannonPetteruti

It's been said that if you put a quarter under the mattress every time you make love from your wedding night until your first anniversary, and then remove one every time you make love thereafter that you would never run out of quarters.

The reduction in erotic zeal and passion that normally occurs over the course of a marriage can be a point of consternation for many couples.

Can Pornography Be Part of a Healthy Relationship


March 24, 2014 - 11:04am — Dr. Stephen Pet...

There's nothing quite as fun and wholesome as a night at home watching movies. Get that fire going, pop-up some popcorn, then plug-in your favorite pornographic movie. See how long you can watch it until passion overwhelms you and the movie becomes simple background noise to the real thing. Pornography can be part of the tapestry of a couple’s healthy sexual life. Through the use of pornography we can safely explore our sexual interests, our turn-ons and our turn-offs. We can stretch the boundaries of our sexual relationship learning new ways to keep things alive and fresh.

To Busy For Sex?


March 13, 2014 - 1:02pm — Dr. Stephen Pet...

The sad truth is we are so damn busy throughout our lives we just don't have time for sex. By the time our life's work is winding down and the time becomes available, we're too damned old to care anymore.

I can't tell you how many patients have said to me "I'm just too tired" by the end of my day to become sexually interested in their partner. After the bustle of daily living, the requirement of household chores and activities, meal preparation, perhaps dealing with business issues after dinner, studying or childcare, there's just no more fuel left to stoke the fires of passion.
