Dr. Doe’s Guide to Great Sex

August 26, 2019

Hi I’m Dr. Lindsey Doe. Welcome to Sexplanations. In a past episode of this show, I talked about
what the research has to say about great sex. Today we’re going to talk about my version
of great sex — what makes sex great for me!!! This episode is sponsored by, an online sex toy store where you can all sorts of things for great sex. Stick around until the end of the video for a special discount. Onto the great sex! [WHIP CRACKING, COUGH] The research by Kleinplatz and colleagues
identified these eight major components to “great sex” : being present, connection,
intimacy, communication, authenticity, transcendence, exploration, and vulnerability. I like these but I want to share my own checklist
for great sex: 1. Give it six tries. Unless the sex is no good very bad, must stop
and never ever do that again, I recommend having sex six times with a person before
concluding that it won’t be great. This takes the pressure off the first try
and reminds everyone playing that it’s a new behavior — of course it’s going to
have some kinks to work out (or work in). When my partner and I were first talking about
sleeping together, he asked that I give him more than one shot at sex so he could learn
my body more and how to please me. I offered six tries. Sex was great on the first, but my guess is
that this is because we were in the mindset of learning and playing, not one and done,
succeed or fail. Having flexibility to decide if we liked it
and how to improve made the sex better. 2. Phone sex first. Before taking off your pants or lifting up
your skirt, try flirting on the phone. I know this is a big ask, especially for people
who aren’t comfortable talking about sex, but you’re going for great sex here! If you really want it you’ll have to be
willing to say what you like and hear from others what they are or aren’t into. Doing this on the phone does two things: one
it builds sexual tension because you’re not right there cutting to the chase, and
two, it cushions the vulnerability. You can talk candidly about what you want
without anyone feeling judged or rejected by uncontrollable facial expressions. The last time I started a relationship this
way, I masturbated on the phone and described what I was doing to myself and how my body
was changing. It gave the other person a sense that I know
my body and I like pleasure. Two very good ways to get great sex. 3. Play with yourself. I can’t stress enough how valuable it is
to have intimate knowledge of your body, your unique arousal cycle, and what does and doesn’t
turn you on. Partner play can be amazing but it will be
more frequently and more consistently great if you figure out YOU and maintain connection
with yourself. Masturbating is also an excellent way to pre-game. Rubbing one out before hanging out with your
partner(s) can often mean that when you do have sex, you’ll be able to go longer, giving
more time to explore each other’s bodies, and play around with different levels of arousal. 4. Have at least four options. Great sex like great anything includes the
ability to improvise when things don’t go the way you’d hoped. For example, if a guest doesn’t show up
on a late night show, the great host knows how to compensate. If strawberries aren’t in season, a great
chef still knows how to garnish a cheesecake. For me it’s usually my hips that get tired,
or my wrists, so back-up options might be use a vibrator, positions on my side, take
a break to read erotica or receive a massage. 5. Schedule sex. Before sex education became popular and people
learned to plan it like other aspects of their lives, the best sex was thought to be spontaneous. You’re hiking in the woods and bam, you decide
to give a blowjob behind a tree. Great! Spontaneous sex can be great but it’s much
more likely to have great sex when it’s on the schedule. It becomes something to look forward to, the
vulva becomes wet closer to the time set aside for sex. And because you’ve thought it out, there’s
less likely to be disruptions, conflicts, or false starts. For example, you could decide on Tuesday at
7:30 and have a much higher chance at sex, let alone great sex than “some time next
week if it spontaneously happens.” Write it down, set an alarm on your phone,
great sex. 6. Have sex more often. Like most physical exercise, the more you
do it, the more you improve, with some limits. Yoga. Skiing. Swimming. Pingpong… Your body becomes more familiar
with what to expect — so it’s actually ready to go the next time around. I try to do dance fitness regularly. When I miss a few weeks, I can still come
back and get into it, but it’s SO much more fun and easy when I’ve been doing it consistently
and I have control over my muscles and alignment. Sex is the same, more often, more fun. 7. Aftercare. I speak at universities and conferences. It’s really exhilarating to be on stage
in front of hundreds of curious people and I get a lot of energy from it, like sex. When it’s done though everyone goes home. I come down off the high of speaking and get
really lonely. So just like with sex, the experience is greater
for me when I have aftercare. At speaking engagements this is people who
want to go out for food afterward or friends who can talk on the phone. For sex this is holding my partner for a short
bit, getting up to pee, then holding them again as my body goes back to homeostasis. Again, for me, great sex is not party party
party, come, off to work. It’s party, party, party, come, cuddle,
cuddle, cuddle. 8. Compliment. Before, during, and after sex, give compliments. Say what you honestly like, increasing the
likelihood that you’ll get it again. Avoid making comparisons, like “the way
you touch my nipples is better than anyone I’ve ever been with” because it puts someone
else down to put your partner up. And avoid attaching too much criticism onto
compliments like “the up down strokes with your tongue were divine but gah, it hurt when
you bit me. It hurt so much.” This is a time to praise what you like and
build self-esteem, offer performance reviews but gently. Like, “I love how you hold my arms down
above my head because I feel dominated. Maybe next time you can go a little lighter
on the grip.” 9. Be honest. Not just in giving compliments, but in the relationship, in how you live. When people aren’t honest with me, my body
does things to armor itself and protect me. This isn’t the case for everyone but it’s
also not uncommon. You might not be able to get an erection,
or get wet, or relax enough for penetration. You might break out in a yeast infection or
skin rash and wonder why? Body and or genital armoring is one explanation. And certainly when my body is trying to guard
me from another person great sex is nearly impossible. The greater the honesty, the greater the sex. At least for me. Lastly, number 10, stay curious. Part of what I enjoy most about great sexual
experiences is not knowing what’s going to happen next or what we might try to keep
things playful and interesting in the future. It helps to ask myself, “What can make great
sex even better? What needs improvement? What could I try next? What’s already worked well that I can include
again? How might my partner feel about this?” I love staying curious! has so many playthings or your
sexual adventures. These are all awesome tools for starting conversations,

    Idk if you did a video on this or not (if so please give me the name of the video so I can look it up) but how can you lead up to sex with out it being awkward? Like a new relationship (or for the first time) and you tow talked about it before but when the time comes and you tow are in a room alone but you don’t know how to start the mood and get into it? That would be a vary educational video for people who need help getting them selfs and there partner in the mood. Maybe for those people who are afraid to just be like “hey want to have sex?” And instead show it threw body language (obviously consent applies to this.)

    Can you talk more about relaxing for penetration? It is very difficult for me to relax enough because I get so self conscious about how I couldn't do it the last time and it's just a vicious cycle that makes me feel broken and inadequate. Are there exercises I can do or toys to use? What helps get rid of the fear?

    in Canada. Today a had bill c-51 rape shield passed and now is the law of the land. There is now no way in Canada for a man to prove consent. Video evidence doesn’t count, written evidence doesn’t count. Nothing counts anymore, and sexual crime is the only crime in Canada where the defense has to show the defense to the prosecution before they have their day in court. It is crazy.
    The best way to have sex with WOMEN is no sex at all.

    Dr. Doe,
    My wife and I are in an odd uncommon situation (as far as we know)
    My wife at the age of 24 had an emergency full hysterectomy.
    We met shortly after she turned 25.
    What the side effects of her hysterectomy no hormones and weight gain.
    I am no longer sexually attracted to my wife our sex life has become non-existent and we are in a open marriage just so I can get some. In all honesty i hate it.
    I was hoping you could do a video about women with hysterectomies and how to remedy the side effects

  • Reply Greg Benwell February 18, 2019 at 5:12 pm

    And where do you find willing partners??? There isn't much of a line between willing partner, rape or abducting somebody as a sex slave!! In fact there are pretty straight forward laws against it!!! And even finding a "willing" partner in this day and age when every women is a "false accuser" makes things even more difficult!! It is easy to be a "great lover" to yourself!! More so when your expectations of the opposite sex is so low that masturbating to porn is a "normal part of your life"!!! But anymore you can't even trust women at all and most certainly ARE NOT "willing" even when they say they are!!!

    Tip: During sex don't plan on a orgasm, if it starts to come slow it down, sometime literately just enjoy the moment. If it happens no biggy, but don't even think about getting there, it shouldn't be the focal point of good sex.

    What no words on drugs? I’m not a druggy by any means, but taking a little molly, or ecstasy allows a couple total freedom in expressing their true feelings, and also makes every single touch amazing. We only take it on rare occasions if we come across either. There are a few other choices as well like adderall but these are the best. You will never be as close to your partner then you will on that. I suggest if one were to do this. To make it a special night. Clean the entire house, bed sheets, and what not. Put music on, both dress up in sexy outfits. Here is where porn, and toys can be shared as well. Have a great night exploring each other inside and out. Sometimes we are at it until the next day. Hours and hours of sex. Sometimes I am so damn sore afterwards but yummy is that worth it. Make sure you are aware of all the side affects and risks involved. O and don’t be hesitant in taking a few showers throughout. It feels great, and it keeps the scene fresh and clean.
