Re: Advice for Dealing with Bad Cramps?

I second getting checked out with a healthcare provider! I just want to suggest you specifically look into an endocrinologist if at all possible in addition to checking in with a gyno. Since it's their specialty, endocrinologists can be a lot better at catching issues like PCOS and endometriosis tha...

Re: I just feel so broken..Am I?

You're afraid for the trauma and fear and crisis to stop for the same reason that those of us with mental illnesses get afraid to seek help or take medication or learn healthy and adaptive coping mechanisms. Change is hard and scary because it represents an unknown , and humans are generally not sup...

Hey, Occidentalis; I'm so sorry for what you've gone through and how it's currently impacting you. <3 It sounds like you have a really good support system, though, and that's great. How would you feel about backing off having sex so often for a while, as you sort out your mind and your body and your...

Re: A girl let me touch her, but she didn’t want to touch me

I don't think it would have been pressuring her to, in the moment, stop and ask what she wanted from the moment with you touching her and her not touching you. It's okay to have a conversation "in the moment". Having a conversation can help clarify boundaries and desires for the both of yo...

Re: I'm confused and scared of romantic relationships

Completely agreed with Siân! The idea you get about romance from most visual media is just... lacking a lot. Partially probably for time constraints but also just due to plain hyperbole and fantastical romanticizing. Romance and kissing and actions don't just "happen" to us in the same way...

Re: Is pleasure during male orgasms even a thing?

Another thing to try would be to set aside a time where you can really relax and get in touch with your body without putting pressure on yourself to orgasm or otherwise achieving a specific result from masturbating. Instead, you can focus on what things feel good to your brain and body and explore ...

I'm going to make this quick since you're looking for a fast response, but I do have somewhere to be shortly, so this is going to be my bare minimum response just so you've had someone to talk to.

Re: don't want to hurt the foreskin

Another option, very similar to mutual masturbation, would be to ask your girlfriend to use your hand to simulate herself. You let your hand completely relax, she puts her hand over yours, and she uses her hand to control the pressure, speed, etc. Then not only are you seeing exactly what she likes,...

Re: bullet vibe battery &

You should replace the batteries whenever a) they die, or b) you notice the vibration is weaker. Vibrators with low batteries can often not produce the power they did with full batteries, so it may be harder to feel simulation from them when the batteries are close to dying - like a flashlight can g...
