Readers Share Their Sex Advice, Stories, and Sex Tips

Each of us can be the best expert on our own sexuality. The more we know about our own sexual experience, the more we can share with others looking for sex advice and tips. Read what other people have to say about what works and what doesn't in their sex lives, and share your own ideas and experiences below.

What's Your Definition of Sex?
Sex can be defined a thousand ways, and there’s no single answer to what sex is. But having a personal definition and sharing it with others is a good place to start to get more of what you want sexually, however you define it. What’s your definition of sex? What's your answer?

Best Sex Positions
All sex positions are not created equal. Our readers share their opinions on the best and worst sex positions. Learn from others and share your tips.

What Is Great Sex?
Great sex can be hard to quantify. Is it the best orgasm you’ve had? The most intimate connection? Is great sex the same as hot sex? Can you have great sex with someone you barely know? Share your definition.

When Does Sex Become a Problem?
Sex researchers, educators, and therapists have surprisingly different definitions of what makes a sexual problem a problem. How do you define sexual problems in your own life? What turns a sexual complaint, confusion, or inconvenience into a sexual problem?

How Do You Define Sexual Compatibility?
There’s no single definition for sexual compatibility, and researchers rarely ask us what we think it means. Is sexual compatibility something you just have or don’t? Is it shared sexual interests and drives that grease the wheels, or is it the tension between desires that don’t fit perfectly that creates the friction and heat? What do you think?

Sex Positions to Avoid Pain
Most of us don’t think about sex positions until they don’t work anymore. If you live with temporary or chronic pain, or are experiencing painful sex for another reason, finding the right sex position is crucial to enjoying sex. Share your ideas on pain-free (or at least pain-reduced) sex positions for solo sex, intercourse, and all kinds of sex play.

Does Circumcision Affect Your Sex Life?
Are you circumcised and/or have you had sex with someone who is? There is a lot of social baggage and hotly contested politics, not to mention a growing body of medical research, about the pros and cons of circumcision. But when it comes to your real experience of sex as a circumcised person, with someone who is circumcised, or both, what’s your...
