1) Should I be having sex on my period?
Honestly, that’s completely up to you and your comfort level, as well as your partners! Some people don’t like having period sex, and if you don’t that’s A-Okay! However, if it’s something you’re interested in, know that having sex on your period is perfectly fine – it even has some benefits! The most common issue with the idea of women having sex on their period is they’re afraid their partner will be grossed out. You would be surprised that most people don’t care, but the only way you’ll know is to ask!

2) I started seeing a guy and he’s a little on the small size. We haven’t had sex yet but I’m thinking about it. Does size really matter?
While some people are “size queens”, that doesn’t mean you need to buy into the hype. While traditional sexual intercourse can sometimes (and I mean sometimes) be a bit lack luster with a smaller partner, you can still find amazing sexual enjoyment. Engage in more foreplay or choose a position that helps work for smaller partners (hint: doggystyle is great for this! Even the smallest guy can hit the G-spot when you tilt your hips upward). It’s not always about the end result, sometimes it’s about the ride! Guys that are on the smaller side tend to be amazing during foreplay because they’re trying to make up for something they think is lacking, don’t be afraid to take advantage!
3) I’m 19 years old and I’ve never been in a relationship. I’ve always felt really self-conscious about it. In the past year, I’ve tried dating, but I could never make it work. Lately, I’ve been really horny, so it’s been even worse for me. I’m starting to worry that I’ll never find anybody. Do you have any advice on how I could find somebody?
Starting a relationship can be complicated and rarely like what we see in the movies. While it might not be what you want to hear, the best advice is often: be patient. We rarely find anybody while we’re actively looking for them. Usually finding somebody to build a relationship with sneaks up on us when we least expect it. Sometimes it can take years (it took me 3) to find someone to build a true relationship with – and there’s nothing wrong with that! It means that when you finally find that person, that often the relationship will be deep and satisfying.
I would suggest focusing on having fun and focus on yourself! There’s nothing wrong with being sexually active (if being horny is what you’re worried about) and taking things as they come. If you haven’t yet, try joining a couple online dating sites – or try a new hobby and take a class. You can meet wonderful people, and you’re more likely to find somebody that shares your interests!
