Chad from Retro Fitness has finally asked you out. And your date, not unlike your pool workout that day, goes swimmingly. So swimmingly, in fact, that he invites you out for drinks the following weekend… and this time, the pool isn’t the only “wet” thing in town.
But as you head back to his apartment for some dessert (wink wink), it becomes clear that the crème brûlée is missing a few ingredients. It comes out, for lack of a better word . . . stale.
You leave his place feeling bloated and unsatisfied, wondering where in the world you went wrong. You’ve made countless crème brûlées in the past!
Well, worry not, mon chérie, for good French dessert you shall make again. Let us answers all of your burning questions about what you and Chad can do to create that sweet, delicious pastry you’ve been craving all month long.
Can you prevent queefing during sex?
Vaginal flatulence (more commonly known as “queefing”) is the emission of trapped air from this organ as a result of intercourse. A coochie fart, if you will.
Although there is not much you can do to prevent this disruptive toot, Kegel exercises can generally strengthen your pelvic floor muscles enough to temporarily hide that whoopee cushion in your hoo-ha.
How do you help your partner improve their performance without offending them?
In order to communicate your needs to someone else, you must first be able to articulate them to yourself! Spend time alone, figuring out what you like. Then assess the difference between that and what your partner does.
If there is a discrepancy, ask him, with specificity, to modify his technique. Be encouraging while you do this, complimenting him on what he does in fact do well. Try using this outline to make your request: “I really love it when you _____. Can you try _____?”
Is something wrong with you if you’ve never orgasmed during sex?
No. According to a study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, only about 18% of all women can finish from penetration alone.
If you’re having difficulty achieving that “big O,” there are a number of things you can try – don’t worry, this is problem is actually a lot more fun to have than you might think.
Outside of the bedroom, those aforementioned Kegel exercises are a great place to start. The pelvic floor muscles that you strengthen are the same ones that contract during an orgasm, so toning them will facilitate the path to climax and amplify its sensation.
During sex, experiment! Try focusing on clitoral stimulation, having longer foreplay, bringing toys in, or just about anything else you and your co-pastry chef can imagine.
What can you do to fix saggy vaginal lips?
Although stretching of the vaginal lips becomes pretty much inevitable with age, you can in fact slow the sag or reverse it altogether, if you so choose.
Once again, Kegels! Are we at all surprised? This one subtle movement has innumerable cosmetic and sexual benefits, including physically tightening up those lady parts.
A passive, yet equally effective way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles is to use a Swiss ball in lieu of an office chair. Doing so forces the muscles to contract, even though it feels like nothing is happening. How efficient is that?!
Some women who experience extreme discomfort walking or doing other daily activities upon stretching of the labia choose to undergo a labiaplasty. This procedure can also be performed for cosmetic reasons.
Where’s your G-spot?
Ahh, the g-spot. Monsieur G. Lil g man. The elusive gí gí. Wh’re art thee, oh sacred one??
According to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the g-spot doesn’t actually…exist? More accurately: it isn’t a distinct part of the female anatomy. There is no apparent erectile or “spongy” tissue in the wall of the vagina. Instead, there is a general area in your vagina that is part of your larger “clitoral network.”
So give up this wild goose (“g”) chase and just experiment, have fun, and make some dang good crème brûlée!
