Should I Feel Bad About Feeling Jealous When My Wife Flirts With Others?
I've always had an uneven relationship with jealousy. As a sexually open person, I've tended to think of jealousy as a bit of emotion, born mainly of insecurity. The Moliere school of thought — "he who is jealous loves more, but he who is not jealous loves better."
Am I A Bad Parent If I Don’t Like Talking About Kids?
One of my oldest friends recently told me she thought she was a fifteen-year-old trapped in a 40-year-old's body. She has kids that age and is — honestly — an amazing mom. She spends most of her social time with her kids and their friends, and her kids are, easily, her number one interest.
Our First Professional Erotic Photo Shoot
My wife and I have taken our fair share of sexy photos. Usually it’s a few impromptu shots with our phones when we’re in a sexy mood. Other times we’ll go to the trouble of getting out the SLR camera, dressing up, and trying for some higher equality ‘boudoir’ photos. But it’s always a little disappointing.

It started as something they would do in the shower, and then grew from there. It’s still a somewhat rare thing for them, but she really, really likes it.
