Q&A Potpourri: Consent, Oral Sex, Waiting #574

Q&A Potpourri: Consent, Oral Sex, Waiting #574

Pam and I work through a potpourri of questions today ….

A husband is struggling with the idea of consent in marriage, even when his wife has given it in some areas.

Wife regularly gives her husband a “hand” yet it’s feeling too transactional now.

A husband told his wife she was great at blow jobs early on in their marriage, yet she’s not. Now what should he do?

A wife has a husband who has lost lots of weight yet still has more to go and lots of loose skin now.

A wife who has never orgasmed and a husband who really wants her too.

A woman is saving herself for marriage, but what if she winds up stuck with a micro-penis?

Been married for 7 months, and sex sucks.

A wife found out her husband struggled with porn and now she is struggling to not worry about what he’s thinking about or wanting to do during sex with her.

Enjoy the show!
