Sexpert of the Week – Dr. Logan Levkoff

If Dr. Logan Levkoff looks familiar, you may have caught one of her many appearances on the Joy Behar Show, Good Morning America or the Rachael Ray show. A popular sexpert, Dr. Levkoff’s openness and honesty have made her a highly sought-after guest, author and blogger.

Dr. Levkoff got off to an early start in sex ed, reportedly becoming the nation’s first college newspaper sex columnist. She has a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality, Marriage and Family Life Education from New York University and an M.S. in Human Sexuality Education, as well as an undergraduate degree in English, from the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Levkoff is the author of Third Base Ain’t What it Used to Be: What Your Kids are Learning About Sex Today and How to Teach Them to Become Sexually Healthy Adults and How to Get Your Wife to Have Sex with You.

According to Dr. Levkoff, “Sexuality is a natural part of who we are. We are all sexual beings, although we express our sexuality differently as we grow up. Our sexuality includes our sense of gender, our body image, our sexual orientation, our sexual behaviors, our emotions and the roles we play in relationships. It is much bigger than what we do and who we do it with.”

Currently living in New York City with her husband and two children, Dr. Levkoff is a spokesperson for Trojan and Sealy’s “Whatever You Do in Bed…” campaign, also serving on Trojan’s Sexual Health Advisory Council.

6 Sexy Date Ideas: Rekindle the Fire

0

Posted 8:45 am, October 18th, 2011

by Zestra News

Rekindle the romance with six great date ideas.

The 21st century is a busy place.  Politics, money, kids, planes, trains, migraines… It’s hard to find time for anything relaxing or personal.

And good sex requires both.

Rushing from dawn until dusk, most of us are tired, stressed and more interested in sleeping on hay than rolling in it.  But this cannot stand!  After all, the very future of the planet and human civilization is at stake!

All kidding aside, here are six ideas for dates that ditch the distractions and re-ignite your sex life.

1.  “Plan” to be spontaneous

Even the best things in life can become routine.  Dazzle your partner with an impulsive lunch-hour shower.  (A tip: Various male and female arousal lubricants can make this experience even more tantalizing and memorable.)  Or, surprise your partner with an unexpected last minute tryst in an upscale hotel.  This decadent and delicious Us Time is guaranteed to leave your relationship refreshed and recharged.

2.  Rent a sailboat for a nautical adventure

A voyage on the high seas is a great way to celebrate your love and kick-start the romance.  Enjoy a candlelit dinner with your partner while relaxing on a beautiful body of water.  For those less experienced, charter companies often offer rentable crews.  Sailing lessons are also available and the experience is more affordable that you think.

3.  Get your game on

Nothing gets the blood hotter than a little friendly competition.  Consider turning your date night into a battle of the sexes over mini-golf or bowling.  Bar games like pool and darts can be both entertaining and endorphin-inducing.  For the truly adventurous, a bedroom casino can combine fun and… more fun.  Challenge your partner to a few hands of strip poker or Kama Sutra roulette.  But remember to draw the blinds.  Or don’t.  Dealer’s choice.

4.  Split date night

Rather than argue about what to do on Saturday night, split the date in two and tailor one-half to each partner.  A sample might be as follows:  Dick likes fishing.  Jane likes dancing.  Dick plans a trip to a local studio for a couple’s tango lesson.  Afterwards, Jane takes Dick to a Bass Pro Shop for dinner.  (And yes, they actually have restaurants in the majority of Bass Pro Shop locations!)  Nothing is sexier than a partner who considers your feelings.

5.  Cook an exotic meal together

Channel your inner Julia Child as the two of you create a sumptuous new dish. Trade duties as you laugh and re-connect in the kitchen.  Food can be surprisingly erotic. Try embracing something spicy like Thai or Indian to get your libido going.  But, remember to ignore those dishes until morning.

6.  Go back to the beginning

Butterflies in the stomach, sly glances across the table, your hand brushing his – a jaunt down Nostalgia Boulevard is a great way to rekindle the fire.  Peruse old pictures or recreate your first date to feel like you’re meeting for the first time, again.

The most important thing to remember is that sex is a shared experience.  Be creative, communicate and have fun together.  Keeping your romantic life fresh amidst the demands of today is a challenge, but not an insurmountable one.

How to Eliminate Sexual Boredom

The Path from Tiresome to Thrilling: How to Eliminate Sexual Boredom

What is Sexual boredom? Even if you absolutely love chocolate chip cookies having them every night week after week, day after day and year after year can lead to some periods of monotony.  Sexual boredom is not uncommon for many couples.  Many couples need to modify the sexual  routine by changing the erotic script.  Changes in what you do sexually with your partner can also affect your your biology by modifying your hormones; novelty can increase the hormones and neurotransmitters that may lead heightened  intimacy and an enhanced bonding experience.

What is most important is that you and your partner feel comfortable with any transformations  to your sexual habits.

Try combining your secret desires into a real fantasy that you both would feel comfortable sharing or even acting out.  Consider your own  turn ons and what you’d like to have your partner do to you.

Be a Good Person and Lover

Its important to stay positive and constructive- criticism rarely makes for a happy sexual home life.  Also keep your sense of humor- life is often a challenge and pull together with your partner rather thank argue and fight.  Your partner can not read your mind- direct communication with your lover is important

Make it Real

Fantasy can turn into reality and it may translate into sexual excitement and adventure. For example, you may want to try pretend not knowing  each other in public places — then meet and see how the evening unfolds. Role playing with costumes and scenes also are exciting for both partners as they can live out fantasies in a safe environment.  Its always important to chat about your own personal boundaries and sexual limitations.

Play with Props

Sexual accessories can help add some excitement into the boring bedroom, Try things like sexy lingere or furry handcuffs or edible oils, sexual accessories or even costumes. Use all your senses and consider experimenting with sensual massage.  A favorite of many men and women is Zestra ® sexual enhancing oil which can be used during lovemaking to give a new WOW factor.  Many enjoy it on a regular basis to increase orgasmic intensity and pleasure.  Some women buy it for themselves and their partners to enjoy while many male partners indulge and want to bring their female sexual partners to a new level of sexual joy.  Try the zesta rush to make the mundane magically.

Seek Adventure

Try something adventurous outside the bedroom. Novelty and excitement produce a neurochemical reaction that may evoke  feelings you experience at the beginning of a new and exciting relationship. Try a rollercoaster, dancing naked in the living room or if you are more daring try skydiving, bungee jumping, or mountain climbing. Maybe even sex in the kitchen with the lights on!

Keep Active

Explore a new activity as a couple, especially one that uses your body. You could try dance lessons, tennis lessons, meditation or  yoga, or massage classes.  Some couples prefer take cooking,  language classes together  or even a massage class.  There are even erotic weekends you can attend to help rekindle your sexual romance.

This month’s tip was provided by guest blogger Dr. Michael L. Krychman, Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine.
