Of sex: Are you denying yourself a full life?
We think sex, talk sex… But just like love, sex is still one of the things most of us have a problem decoding… especially when it involves totally pleasing the other person and you getting maximum satisfaction.
Many have settled for less just so the other person can get pleasure. Many of us have had to do freaky stuff (stuff we would never have done in a million years) just so our loved ones can have their fantasies fulfilled. Some couples have mismatched sexual desire levels… one wants more, the other probably don’t want it at all. Some just do it as a favor to their mates while others approach it like a chore – laundry has to be done, sex too. :lol: . I could go on and on… But with so much writing about sex, you would think most of us would have put a finger on its mysteries by now.
Oprah did a show, Sex Therapy, and had Dr. Laura Berman (pictured above), author of Real Sex for Real Women on it, to tell us everything we need to know about sex and more…. Dr Berman confessed that important sex is in her life and that she doesn’t want to live without it. “…when sex is working in a relationship, it's just one small part of the working relationship. But when it's not working, it really can take on a life of its own and really fray the fiber of your connection to one another."

True dat! But does not enjoying sex make you feel like life is being sucked out of you? Well, according to her, “denying yourself the opportunity to enjoy sex doesn't just cheat you out of pleasure—it also robs you of the chance for a full and happy life.”
So how are you supposed to enjoy sex if you are this woman Kerrie (on the show) who tells Dr. Berman that she doesn't always get back what she gives – she often performs oral sex on Shawn (the husband), but Shawn doesn't reciprocate? Do you agree with Dr. Berman?
