Why can't I get it up?

Anonymous
asks:
Okay, here's my dilemma. I am 16 and sexually active. I've been with my girlfriend for a year and a half. We've used to have sex perfectly with no problems until about a couple of months ago.

asks:
My boyfriend and I have been together for over a year and we have been having sex. But when we do the doggystyle (not anal) its painful for me.

What can I do so it doesn't hurt?...

Am I only able to have sex without emotions?

I have no reservations when I have casual sex. However when one of these flings turns into a relationship and things get serious I don't want to have sex with them anymore. It has happened with my last three boyfriends and has been the primary reason for my breakups....

Anonymous
asks:
One of the ways to help prevent cervical cancer and/or HPV infection is by taking a vaccination with HPV vaccine. I read it somewhere and it says that ideally females should get the vaccine before they are sexually active. This is because the vaccine is most effective in women/girls who have not yet acquired any of the HPV types covered by the vaccine....
