Naomi Wolf, who recently released her autobiography Vagina, (add to your reading list) is now on a mission to educate the public about your sexual life and the danger of internet pornography, and how it is "re-wiring the male brain"..check out this video..
This is particularly problematic for the sex life of teenagers whose whole concept of sex and sexual arousal is being skewed by the unrealistic depiction of sex on the internet. I see it frequently with men who have issues getting erections with a partner when they're not watching porn. We literally have to rewire the brain to experience pleasure in a sensate, as opposed to visual way. Don't get me wrong..I'm a fan of porn..It definitely has its place but like anything else a little moderation goes a long way. It can negatively effect your sexual life.
As so beautifully explained by my colleague Brian Estlin in his blog post below porn can also result in feelings of inadequacy and self judgement in men.

The year I discovered my love muscle is the year that my sex life became extraordinary and it can happen to you too! As a mother of two children, I thought that I knew all about the importance of doing Kegel exercises for a better sex life as they strengthen the pelvic floor after birth.
And I have to admit that even though I experienced some bladder leakage during strenuous exercise or intense coughing and knew that doing Kegels was supposed to help, I still neglected doing them or would start the Kegels for a few days and then forget….sound familiar?
Play parties and sexual fantasy can be a fun and exciting way to explore your sexuality, acting out on fantasies, meeting new people and enjoying the sexual energy of others. Good play party facilitators create a safe container for the participants by warm up games to get to know each other, practice discussing boundaries and your safe sex elevator speech. The ideal play party creates a playground where you can frolick, engage in different types of activities, play in groups, take breaks, and just hang out and witness, which is a great way to participate in a play party.
Playgrounds, however, can also be challenging places. Just think back on some of your own childhood experiences. At various times you might have experienced rejection, teasing, isolation, jealousy and disappointment. These same playground dynamics can take place in a play party and can stir up the same types of feelings. So here are five ways to help protect your feelings and ensure that you have a positive play experience.
