Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby!

Dr. Wendy Walsh Dr. Wendy Walsh • 9/25/14

Here’s the good news: Sex is healthy for you. Research has shown sex two times per week lowers stress and improves mood.

Of course, unsafe sex or sex with a partner who is emotionally hurtful isn’t so good for you, but most happy, healthy couples report their sex life is very important to them and contributes to their bond.

Now here’s the bad news:

Long-term monogamous sex takes a bit of work and creativity to be passionate for the long haul, but if there’s a silver lining to America’s current obsession with sex, it is people are finally talking about their sexual needs more openly.

Danny Osadca should know. He’s a serial entrepreneur and currently the CEO of Standard Innovations, the company responsible for the wildly successful We-Vibe vibrator that has the mainstream appeal that no other “adult” product has ever had.

When deciding to helm the company, Osadca’s first concern was how to tell his friends, but since the success of the book “Fifty Shades of Grey,” he finds more couples are wanting to talk about sex.

“These days I have trouble getting people to stop talking about sex!” Oscada said.

Specifically, people are talking about the unique “C” shaped We-Vibe that helps women have a vaginal orgasm during intercourse.

Since the small, medical grade device is not in a traditional phallic shape, men aren’t threatened by it and plenty of couples are keeping monogamy hot and spicy throughout the lifespan.

In fact, Lavinia Evans-Axel, general manager of People Media, the parent company of the largest online dating site for the over 50 set, OurTime.com, says in their recent sex survey, respondents said open communication about sex was one of the things they most desired in a partner.

So let’s talk about sex. In our dating lives, let’s talk about safe sex, sexual boundaries and sexual desires – at the right pace and with the right partner.

Sex is a part of our wellness.
