Having Sex with Multiple Sclerosis:  Communication, Positions, and Tips

Having Sex with Multiple Sclerosis: Communication, Positions, and Tips

Getting a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis can be frightening and exhausting. Because there is no direct test for MS, you’ve likely gone through an extended process of recognizing symptoms and ruling out other possibilities. And when the diagnosis finally comes, adjusting to life with MS requires adaptation and patience in equal measure. That’s particularly true when it comes to sex.

Positions and Toys that Let You Have Exciting Sex Regardless of Your Arthritis

Sex and arthritis aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, sex can help with the pain and stiffness that arthritis causes. According to sex therapist Marty Klein, “Sex strengthens the muscles around the joints, which helps support them. And it's mood-elevating, which likewise helps alleviate pain." Studies and experience tell us sex can be beneficial for helping to alleviate the pain from arthritis—if you’re doing it right.

Combat Veteran Intimacy Struggles: How Wounded Vets Can Take Back the Bedroom

Combat Veteran Intimacy Struggles: How Wounded Vets Can Take Back the Bedroom

Getting out of the military is hard. By the time you’ve reached your end of active duty you’ll have spent years around people who dress the same, went to the same basic training, worked the same or a similar job, and understood even the most obscure jokes you made about military life. Coming home can make you feel like you’ve become a stranger.

And when you’ve been wounded in combat, vulnerability can be even harder to embrace. However, there are steps you can take to accept and embrace your situation, to thrive in this ‘new normal.’ There are ways to reconnect with your partner (and yourself) and accept intimacy.

Debunking Myths about Sexuality and Disability

Debunking Myths about Sexuality and Disability

To many people, there are few topics which seem more uncomfortable and personal than sexuality and disability. Conversations about bodies can make people uneasy, because our bodies are so often and intimately tied to our identities. And when the topic transitions to sex or disability—or both—lots of people simply avoid them out of politeness, discomfort, or a lack of vocabulary (or, let’s be real, all three). That silence may be politely well-intentioned, but it leaves most disabled people feeling that their sexuality is elided and ignored in the wider world. Myths and misunderstandings about disability and sex abound, and here we will try to tackle and demystify a few.

Best Sex Toys for Erectile Dysfunction

Best Sex Toys for Erectile Dysfunction

Even though it has become a more commonplace topic than in the past, talking about erectile dysfunction is undeniably difficult. Living with it? Even more so. Many guys, understandably, feel that some portion of their masculinity is tied to their sexual performance. And so experiencing difficulty with erections can turn into both a physical and mental struggle. But listen: You might feel that your masculinity is tied to your erection, but it isn’t. Erectile dysfunction does not lessen you as a man or mean that you have failed your partner.

6 Tips for Enjoyable (and Safe!) Sex After Hip Replacement Surgery

6 Tips for Enjoyable (and Safe!) Sex After Hip Replacement Surgery

The road to recovery after hip replacement surgery can be long and challenging. It’s no surprise that patients become eager to get back to their old lives and routines and often struggle to adapt to their new—though temporary—physical limitations.

These limitations include those surrounding intimacy with partners. While recovery can take up to an entire year, that is a very long time to wait to resume relations. And as it turns out, love really can’t wait. And shouldn’t have to.

The most important thing to keep in mind, throughout the healing process, is to be patient with your partner and yourself. Intimacy is all about empathy, and if you or your partner are recovering from surgery, that need for empathy and understanding only increases. Remember, these limitations will pass. You can still enjoy intimacy… and pleasure. And until you are fully recovered, you can still have hot, passionate, steamy sex. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a position or toy that brings you and your partner amazing new ways to orgasm.

Maintaining Intimacy as a Quadriplegic: A Couple’s Guide to Paralyzed Sex

Maintaining Intimacy as a Quadriplegic: A Couple’s Guide to Paralyzed Sex

Contemplating sex after paralysis can seem like a daunting task, especially when your paralysis reaches the level of quadriplegia. And yet sex is very often the first question on our lips after the paralysis.  Mitchell Tepper, a clinical sexologist and quadriplegic for more than thirty years, remembers that “when I woke up in the hospital, I was still in intensive care and as soon as they took my breathing apparatus out, the first thing I asked was if I could still have children[.]  I was 20 years old, kids weren't on my mind yet, but instinctively when you're in this position, [you think] ‘What’s my sexual future?’”

The path back to healthy sexuality may be complex, but quadriplegia doesn’t have to prevent you from having an active and full sex life.
