Frustrated? You bet ya!

Bad news, folks. We are Europe’s most sexually frustrated nation – only 47% of us are satisfied with our sex lives. A quarter of us have sex four to six times a week, which is pretty good going, and presumably the rest are jealous!Irish ladies need to up their game though – 80% of men feel sex isn’t spontaneous enough. Put down that glass of wine, switch off the Sex and the City box set and do something about it, girls. That’s a very poor showing…Personally I am in the unhappy 53% at the moment, but that’s just because my lovely boyfriend isn’t here right now to sort me out. But that’s par for the course… Does anybody else get incredibly sexually frustrated when they are working? Or is that just me? Ho hum… Probably doesn’t help that I am working at home right now and have been looking at porn sites though…Talking of which, check out YouPorn. It’s basically a completely adult version of YouTube – mostly videos of real people having sex, and some hentai and 3D stuff as well. Vaguely addictive…

Anne says ‘No scalpels!’

I was reading the other day that vaginal surgery is becoming all the more popular. Popular procedures include tightening, labial reductions, clitoral enhancements and G spot augmentations with collagen and the most bizarre of all, re-virgination. Why anyone (at least in the Western world) would go to all the trouble, pain and expense of creating a fake membrane only to break it again is beyond me. Hmmm… a very worrying trend.

Many women ain’t that fond of their vaginas, and apparently this low self-esteem can really put a damper on their sex lives. But the thing is, like faces, no two vaginas are exactly alike so there isn’t any correct way for a vagina to look. Anyway imagine how much more self-conscious you’d feel after a botched job. Besides risk of infection, there are plenty of other things that can go wrong include scarring, loss of sensation and pain having sex. No way. Not worth it. Kegel exercises help with tightening anyway, and are easy enough (although like most exercise, a pain in the arse, but well worth the hassle). And if you want to beautify the area there are easier ways. Sign up to the Hot Pink Ezine (www.hotpinkbook.com) and check out all the latest designer styles for your ‘down there’ hair.

Ladies, we should all love and appreciate our vaginas! And find somebody (or somebodies!) who’ll love it as much as you do.

Teenage kicks

Tristan Taormino’s ChemistrySex in the Sexton household has become somewhat impossible of late. My lovely boyfriend had an accident a few weeks ago and has cracked all the ribs on the left side of his body. Poor boy. This makes sex basically impossible – he can barely walk upright – so all we can do is mess around with each other. This involves getting him into a comfy position and moving myself around so he can use his fingers and tongue. He feels bad about not been able to shag me, so the silver lining in this sorry tale is that he’s happy to play with me for hours. Mmmm…. very nice. I feel just like a teenager again – hours of foreplay because you can’t ‘go all the way.’Still, I wish he was back in full fighting form. I have this new book with 365 different positions and tricks to try. Some of the information is a bit basic (good for beginners, I suppose) and the illustrations could be more graphic (guaranteed not to offend the sensitive) but there are still a lot of good ideas in there. It’s called Daily Sex: 365 Positions and Activities for a Year of Great Sex by Jane Seddon.Somebody asked me an interesting question the other night – what should they do about their partner who is obsessed with porn? So much so, that he preferred to watch other people get off than have sex with his girlfriend. Hmmm… definitely a sacking offence I think.As regular readers of Hot Press will know I am pro porn, particularly if the adult movie in question has women viewers in mind, so that I can enjoy it too! Stats vary (as usual) but the general consensus seems to be that around 40% of women use porn on a regular basis, and women’s porn is becoming ever more popular. Girls who are keen, but want to separate the wheat from the chaff should check out Babeland’s Women’s Guide to Porn, which can be found at babeland.com America is a strange and wonderful place and they sure have some weird laws about sex. Here are some of my favourites:In Wyoming, couples may not have sex while standing inside a store’s walk-in meat freezer. I wonder which hapless couple did this to necessitate a law?In Kentucky there is a law that states, “No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club.”And weirdest of all – in California, anyone having intercourse with Satan must use a condom. So it’s okay to have congress with the devil as long as you don’t have his babies crazy stuff!If you are in the Cork area, catch me on Victor Barry’s Show, Cork Talks Back, every Thursday night from 11:15. I’ll be answering questions about anything and everything to do with sex.
