  “How do I get past my childhood trauma and enjoy my husband’s loving touch?” – Can’t Get In The Moment   My heart goes out to you, it really does. It is so challenging to not be able to enjoy sexual contact when you’ve got a body full of trauma triggers. I’ve found many people aren’t aware that sexual abuse or assault can leave the survivor with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD doesn’t only afflict war veterans – virtually anyone […]

  “How can I get better sleep? I don’t sleep well and I never feel rested when I wake up.” – Needing More Zs   Poor sleep is one of the biggest complaints I hear from my clients. Whether you’re not able to get to sleep or stay asleep, if you’re waking up in the middle of the night or just plain having a hard time getting up each morning, you’re not alone.   Many things can contribute to poor […]

  “Does semen contain gluten? I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and wondering how this could impact my sex life.” – Wary of Gluten   I’ve been asked this question more times than I can count. When you’ve just been informed that gluten can make you really, seriously sick, you get worried about its presence everywhere. In food? In makeup? In my toothpaste? And yes…in my partner’s body.   Does semen contain gluten? The short answer is…probably not. Unfortunately, […]

  “Why do I always seem to have digestive issues? How can I improve my digestion?” – Rumbly In My Tumbly   Don’t you just hate it when you’ve eaten something delicious – that massive Chipotle burrito or that delightfully greasy burger from your favorite restaurant – and you wind up with stomach cramps, burps or gas passing, or unpleasant bowel movements? It could be due to a number of things and the solutions could be simpler than you think! […]

  “Is caffeine really bad for you?” – Perks And Quirks   Caffeine is a really hot topic, PAQ. In this country, coffee is something most people require just to get moving in the morning – just look at the Starbucks on every corner. But we hear some contradictory arguments about it, don’t we? Some say coffee and caffeine are horrible for you and some say it’s got lots of health benefits. Let’s look at the pros and cons you […]

  “I’m a man who likes to occasionally dress up in my wife’s lingerie. She’s usually happy to play along. But lately, I’ve had strong desires to dress like a woman all the time. How should I approach this with her? I don’t want to do it behind her back.” – Wants To Wear Makeup   First, WTWM, I’d like to acknowledge the courage it takes to come out, especially to your wife. It’s great that you feel safe enough […]

  “How can I increase my oral sex skills with my wife?” – Tired Tongue   The pursuit of oral pleasure is a lifelong quandary for many – not only men and women looking to increase their oral sex techniques, but also men and women who want to get the most out of their receiving experience. (I’ll write a complementary article about oral sex for men at another time and reserve this one for women.)   Oral sex has traditionally been […]

  “What are the best natural ways to help my body with adrenal fatigue?” – Tired of Feeling Tired   TOFT, adrenal fatigue is a subject close to home. As I’ve written on my website, I struggled with adrenal fatigue myself and it took years for my body to recover from it. It’s a long, slow process that requires diligence and patience, but recovery is certainly possible. Many people who have adrenal fatigue may struggle with other health issues simultaneously, but for […]

Fruit smoothies

“I’m new to protein powders and I’m not sure where to start. It seems there are tons of different types of protein, lots of different brands and even some controversy. Which types of protein are best?” – Confused About Fuel   CAF, let’s start at the beginning. What is protein, where do we get it and why is it important?   Isn’t protein just another word for beef? Protein is made of life-building chains of amino acids, and we need […]
