3 Ways To Use The Internet As Your Sexual Communication Wingman

3 Ways To Use The Internet As Your Sexual Communication Wingman


I recently talked to my partner about how, once you’ve lived in sex positive world for a while, you start to forget that not everyone is comfortable talking openly about sex all the time. Sexual communication can be scary. In a perfect world we’d all feel completely comfortable expressing our sexual desires to our partners but in the real world many folks still find saying the words challenging.

If you are thinking about trying some new things but feeling a bit self-conscious about bringing them up to your partner I encourage you to let the internet be your wingman! There you will find a bevy of resources for learning about the stuff that turns you on and those resources make communicating your desires to your partner as easy as clicking “share”!

Here are three of my favorite ways to use the internet as your sexual communication wingman.

Send educational articles, videos, and more

These days the internet is home to a ton of smart, savvy sex writers and, consequently, just about any topic you can think of is bound to have been covered. Even if the mainstream media hasn’t covered it, it’s probably been blogged about, vlogged about, or even made into a comic strip (and I often recommend the blogs, vlogs, and comics over the other outlets!)! Research whatever it is you are interested in and send a link or two to your partner. You might be surprised by how much you can both learn while you show them what you’re interested in trying!

So much to learn!

Share your favorite porn

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Internet porn is like Pinterest for sex! You pick stuff out, get excited to try it, make elaborate plans,  and it often looks nothing like the picture, but you have so much fun trying! So head on over to a steamy site like Bellesa and pick out the videos, erotic stories, and pictures, or gifs.that turn you on. Show them to your partner and you could be making new sexy game plans in no time!

Show them how it might work!

Sharing porn is one of my favorite modes of sexual communication because it makes whatever you are proposing concrete. Sometimes when we just hear an idea proposed in the abstract, it doesn’t quite click and, in the case of sex stuff that means we can’t see how something would be a turn on at all. When we share porn we get to see exactly what something looks like in action. This can make the journey from “huh?” to “uh huh!” a bit easier.

Make a (sexy) wish list

Back in the day, shopping for sex toys and products required going to that one shop in your town (if it had one) and it might have been kind of seedy and the choices were limited. These days sex shopping has gone high tech with huge online inventories and even wish list capabilities! Pick your favorite shop and make a list of the things that strike your fancy. Share it with your partner and get the conversation started – better communication through shopping!

There you go folks, 3 ways to let the internet start the conversation for you and, ultimately, help you cultivate your own sexual communication skills. You might not always need a wingman but for now, the internet’s got your back!

Here’s how to REALLY better the world.

Here’s how to REALLY better the world.


Imagine driving home on a cold winter’s night when, out of nowhere, stabbing pain fills the area behind your eyes. Then it’s as though a curtain drops around you. In a snap, you are completely blind.

That’s exactly what happened to Linda Cruse some years ago, before she became the celebrated humanitarian aid worker and social entrepreneur she is today. I had the pleasure of interviewing Linda last week and cannot wait for you all to hear her story.

“I have no idea how I stopped the car,” she told me. “Intuition, angels… But I sat there on the hard shoulder of the highway, scared, frightened, completely lost. I would never see my kids again. I’d never work again. And then I started, ‘Why me? What have I done wrong?’”

No one stopped to help as Linda sat there feeling terrified, angry and perplexed. Moments like these, she said, force you to wake up.

“I started to pray,” she said. “My prayer was, ‘If my sight comes back, I promise I’ll find what I was born to do, and I will live it. I will find my passion and my purpose and I will live it.’ That was my promise.” 

Her sight did return, and she has fulfilled her promise in remarkable, world-shifting ways.

Changing the world, Linda shows us, doesn’t require some magic formula (though magic can be involved, as you’ll learn!). Nor does it require loads of cash or even leaving your home (though both can apply in some cases). It does involve trusting our instincts, embracing our unique gifts, respecting and listening to the people we wish to support and having fun in the process.

It’s such a privilege to share her voice and message with you all. I can’t imagine spending time with or listening to Linda and not going away somehow changed or deeply inspired. One of her many gifts, as Sir Richard Branson has pointed out, is making the impossible possible. She’s quite skilled at lighting similar fires in others.

Listen to the episode on iTunes or below! It also features wonderful thoughts from Dr. Megan Fleming, on making long-distance romance work. (If you do decide to pack up and live out of one suitcase as Linda does, this may be helpful. ;))

I’m Not Good With Strangers #WickedWednesday – A Sexual Being

I’m Not Good With Strangers #WickedWednesday – A Sexual Being


This week’s Wicked Wednesday prompt is about meeting a stranger on a train. I’d like to tell you something sexy and kinky immediately came to mind, that the idea of meeting a stranger got me hot, wet, and ready for kinky fuckery. It didn’t.

I’m not good with strangers.

People who’ve met me in person after knowing me online will beg to differ, but here in this place,to me, you’re not a stranger. Not usually. Have we had a few conversations? Perved each other on social media or our mutual blogs? Do I love how you write, think, or do your kinky fuckery? Well, hell, we’re practically family at that point.

Of course I’ll hug and laugh and talk way too much when we meet. I’ll forget about my discomfort. You’ll never believe I’m an introvert. Hell, I’ll be as rowdy and kinky in person as I am here on the screen. Well, I won’t strip my clothes off…don’t get too excited.

But people who are new to me? People I just met? People I don’t know at all?

Eek! I’d like to hide in a closet, please. (I almost wrote “under the bed” but you see how that could be a problem, right?!) Call me when they’re not a stranger anymore.

Oh, that’s right. People only stop being strangers once you make eye contact, have a conversation, and connect. That’s the hard part.

While John Brownstone and I talk about the next stage of our relationship, the caveat is that I know I can’t do it alone. I can’t meet a total stranger. I can’t do that eye contact thing.

Part of it’s introversion (a very small part). Part of its anxiety. Part of it is a lack of confidence. Part of it is an inability to pursue another person.

Believe it or not, I’m not sexually or romantically forward with anyone until I’m at the John-Brownstone-level of comfort. As you can imagine, that’s a pretty high level to achieve. I have to be pursued. I have to be approached. I almost have to be coaxed into it – made to believe the other person has a genuine interest.

Except I don’t make eye contact or talk to people I don’t know. See where this gets complicated?

Basically, I’m a lot of fucking work. And I don’t expect anyone to pursue me that hard (imagine my surprise when John Brownstone did all those years ago!). I’m not going to do it, so why should anyone else, right?

I talk good game about fucking and sucking someone other than him. But I also know it’s because he’ll be there. He’ll initiate things. He’ll guide me. He’ll lead. I’ll follow him down a path and find my own pleasure in the process.

But a stranger? No, I can’t imagine that happening at all.
