I understand what you are saying about everyone being different and kinda thought that would be the reason. Also, I really respect the "PG-13" thing. My little sister is 11 and she kinda can 'get curious' when sites talk about sex. It's understandable, I mean, she just learned about the whole thing and it's all new and she wants to explore, but she's a little young. I hate it when sites drop the inuendo and just blunty say things that could be said in different ways. I'm glad this site realizes you can be helpful without all the details. :-) But just one thing: I have a slight suggestion. My cousin in Houston, who told me about your site, gives a lot of sex advice (mostly physical or else I would talk to her about the problems I ask you guys about) and she has a technique which I think is very good. She, like, tells people ways to find out what their mate will like. You know, asking them what pleases them and all that good stuff. Just thought you guys could think about doing that. (As long as it isn't against the policies, of course!)
------------------ In life, there are choices to make every where you go. Do your best to follow your heart and listen to the advice of people you love and trust.
We do encourage partners to communicate in order to find out what pleases them, especially when users don't follow the guidelines and ask for technique. So, I guess that we do use your cousin's "technique"!

Actually what you said is a big part of our policy. For the most part, whenever we recieve a post asking for technique advice, in addition to informing the individual of the guidelines, we'll also mention that they simply need to ask their partner what they like/dislike. We want to make sure that the main focus of this site remains on promoting safer sex, as opposed to becoming a trivial dropping ground for the latest fad that's supposed to please "everyone", and on getting the facts out there and trying to break down the many sexual myths and generalizations that are floating around.
I'm glad you've found our site, and that you find it useful.
