She Makes Oral A Chore

Q&A No Comments

We’re not sure why, considering we don’t have any doctors or psychologists on staff, but we here at Sex and the 405 get as many pleas for help as we do tips. Nevertheless, our editrix is not one to let people go forth into the strangeness of their lives without some semblance of advice, however unprofessional it may be and we’ve decided to devote a section of our site to share this knowledge.*

I have been in a (relatively) happy relationship for a few months now. The girl seems great, but I don’t feel like we have great sex. I say relatively happy because I seem to have a problem relating sex to the relationship. If its boring, I tend to want to have sex less and spend less time with the woman. Although she is great, I can’t get past that.

THE PROBLEM: As I said, she is great, a tad reserved sexually, but seems open to anything I suggest. One of my biggest joys is turning a woman on through oral. I am fairly good at it, so I don’t mind doing it. However, she usually won’t have an orgasm unless she has oral. So that means it is required that is the first thing we do. Fine with me, but this is getting pretty routine. To make matters worse, she seems to be extremely wet. Wet is good during sex, but when I am going down it feels almost like mucus. The more I do this, the more turned off I get.

I really want to enjoy sex with her, but it gets more difficult by the day. Can you help me please?

Over Oral

And the response:

Dear Over:

Falling into a routine in sex has to be one of the fastest ways to neutralize any passion and desire that there exists between people. I’ve been there. I hear people tell one another “it’s just sex,” but the truth is that it’s not just sex — it’s sex! And sex is important to our well-being. Being with a partner who satisfies us is part of a healthy relationship.

I’ve divided your problem into parts. You have the routinely aspect of sex, and the matter of excess of lubrication in your partner. For the first, I suggest a trip to the sex shop for both of you to procure a couple of clitoral stimulators. I love The Screaming O’s FingO which you can wear on your finger to stimulate her while you have sex. Babeland’s Climax Twist is a clitoral wand that you can reach in more difficult positions — with the added benefit that you can twist it into other angles to meet your demands.

By using a toy, you can ensure that she gets off without being tied to the routine of engaging in oral unless that is what you feel like doing. Sex should never be a chore. It also frees you both to have sex in places other than the bedroom — try it! Switching locations up can be an incredible jolt to routine.

As far as her excess of lubrication, this could be as natural as being a part of her to being caused by the pill, to being a symptom of an infection. If she has noted no pain or burning, chances are that it’s not the latter, but a urine test could easily confirm just to be sure. If she is on the pill, the excessive wetness could be caused by the hormones in the pill — or, as mentioned, it could be entirely natural.

Douching has shown to exacerbate the problem instead of rectifying it, but perhaps a sexy shower can help. You may also consider incorporating moist, unscented towelettes to wipe moisture during oral as it accumulates. It’s not the sexiest proposition, but I’ve heard of stranger things being successfully incorporated into foreplay.

Give it a shot and remember you’re in this together. Sharing the toy-shopping experience will show her how committed you are to her pleasure and add another dimension to the fun — you never know what you might find, after all!

* Our attorneys want us to reiterate that we’re not experts and all suggestions given are to be taken with the same level of caution that you would take those given by a friend who has nothing but his own experience on which to base his responses. Do not sue us! Our editrix and attorneys have a lot of time on their hands and they consider petty litigation an entertaining past time — probably because we have to do all the leg work!


We're your creatures, putting to words things to inform you, amuse you, educate you and move you. Be nice to us, we already have a cruel mistress in our editrix. We say that with love, of course, we do love her whip.

Gamers Won’t Be Seduced, Will Stare At Random Cleav Instead

That Steam allows the objectification and sexualization of female characters in a variety of its games but refuses to accept a game about actually engaging with women in a more interactive fashion is astonishingly backward.

FetLife Is Not Safe for Users

That the site doesn’t take measures to protect user content and has shown incompetence or negligence in regard to user privacy, all the while prohibiting victims from warning others about predatory behavior creates an environment where it is nearly impossible for members of the community to take care of themselves and one another. By enabling FetLife to continue espousing a code of silence, allowing the spinning self-created security issues as “attacks,” and not pointing out how disingenuous FetLife statements about safety are, we are allowing our community to become a breeding ground for exploitation.

Why You Should Vote No On Prop 35

Should people who benefit (parents, siblings, children, roommates!) from the earnings of “commercial sex acts” (any sexual conduct connected to the giving or receiving of something of value) be charged with human trafficking? Should someone who creates obscene material that is deemed “deviant” be charged as with human trafficking? Should someone who profits from obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should people transporting obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should a person who engages in sex with someone claiming to be above the age of consent or furnishing a fake ID to this effect be charged with human trafficking? What if I told you the sentences for that kind of conviction were eight, 14 or 20 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $500,000, and life as a registered sex offender?

Pretty and Calls Herself a Geek? Attention Whore!

If you are a woman, you might be given a chance to prove yourself in this community. Since there is no standard definition of what a “geek” is and it will vary from one judge to the next anyway, chances of failing are high (cake and grief counseling will be available after the conclusion of the test!). If you somehow manage to succeed, you’ll be tested again and again by anyone who encounters you until you manage to establish yourself like, say, Felicia Day. But even then, you’ll be questioned. As a woman, your whole existence within the geek community will be nothing but a series of tests — if you’re lucky. If you aren’t lucky, you’ll be harassed and threatened and those within the culture will tacitly agree that you deserve it.

Cuddle Chemical? Moral Molecule? Not So Fast

Zak’s original field, it turns out, is economics, a far cry from the hearts and teddy bears we imagine when we consider his nickname. But after performing experiments on generosity, Zak stumbled on the importance of trust in interactions, which led him, rather inevitably, to research about oxytocin. Oxytocin, you might remember, is a hormone that has been linked previously to bonding — between mothers and children primarily, but also between partners. What Zak has done is take the research a step further, arguing in his recent book, The Moral Molecule, that oxytocin plays a role in determining whether we are good or evil.

How to Avoid Pissing off a Stripper

Let’s talk about the strippers. Whether they like to be half-naked or not, whether they enjoy turning you on or not, there’s one thing they all have in common: they’re working. Whether you think that taking one’s clothes off for money is a great choice of career is really beside the point (is it a possibility for you to make $500 per hour at your job without a law degree? Just asking). These women are providing fantasy, yes, but that is their job. And as a patron of the establishment where they work, you need to treat them like you would anyone else who provides a service to you.
