Knowledge is power, but apparently not when it comes to sex. Kristie Overstreet , a clinical sexologist and psychotherapist tells Healthline. Luckily, we have answers to some of your most burning, puzzling questions.
Technically, no — the time a woman is fertile is mostly limited to a few days each month in the middle of the menstrual cycle, meaning about two weeks from when she started her last period. That said, women may have bleeding during their cycle that is not a true period. This comes easily for some women and not so easily for others. We live in a culture where women are often more comfortable with romantic thoughts and less so with sexual thoughts that may be more effective in leading to arousal and orgasm. I would suggest that this is not a worthwhile goal, at least all the time, as it could require a fair amount of logistics; nothing wrong with taking turns.
Going sex toy shopping together either online or at a local shop is a great way to enhance intimacy, initiate conversation, and find something that excites both of you. External toys that stimulate your clitoris make great starter toys. There are a plenty of reasons, but the main one is that most women require extra clitoral stimulation and the penis in most positions comes nowhere near hitting your hot spots.
