April Masini – www.AskApril.com – returned to the program. April is an advice columnist where over 20,000 original relationship questions have been posted and answered. She is also an author: “Date Out of Your League” for men; “Think & Date Like a Man,” for women; “50 First Dates”; and “The Next 50 Dates.” Because she gets many questions from singles, April and Dr. Diana focused on some of their issues. For example, How do I get out of the “friend zone”? Her piece for YAHOO Personals “Why Nice Guys Finish Last” was referenced…The nice guy may care too much, too soon. The woman is not going to value him anymore than he values himself. Online dating, its ups and its downs were examined – along with tips for improving the process! If there is too much emotional baggage of fear, anxiety or mental conflicts, it is clear: online dating does not heal emotional pains. Psychotherapy may be necessary. Look for someone who has already done some inner work. April and Dr. Diana agreed that seeking a mate whose values and background echo your own is wise. April will return soon!

Dr. Paul Joannides is the author of “GUIDE to GETTING it ON” which many say is the best sex guide available today. You can find out more about this fabulous sex education book, now in its 7th Edition, by going to www.guide2getting.com.   Dr. Diana and Dr. Paul discussed what is new in sex research – including the fact that funding for pleasure is a real challenge. One of Dr. Paul’s best sex tips is for couples to listen to each other. The porn model makes this and some sexual behaviors difficult. The women and orgasms topic included the fact that the more orgasms you have, the more orgasms you’re likely to have in the future. Dr. Paul pointed out that women need to feel safe to reach orgasm…that a requirement is a harm reduction mentality. Both genders need a proper sex education and opportunity to practice so that there is a synergy of mind, body and spirit to release this very unique experience! Dr. Paul’s tip on touch is important: “Some people struggle to get fully into their bodies. Some have trouble relaxing enough to enjoy what is being shared with them sexually. Learning to massage and being massaged might help your body put down its armor.” Listening to this program could make a big difference for your intimacy! Next time Dr. Paul returns, there will be a conversation about erectile dysfunction.

Dr. Lori Buckley – www.DrLoriBuckley.com – returned to the show. This time the focus was on relighting fires in a relationship, no matter the ages. Dr. Lori’s book is “21 Decisions for Great Sex & a Happy Relationship” and can be purchased on AMAZON. A big decision is to keep going! First, have the conversation with your partner, go places and do things you’ve never done before, and then consciously bring into the relationship more romance. “Date nights” are useful where couples talk about each other, not the kids. Older people in relationships have more confidence – and this can be very romantic. Dr. Lori and Dr. Diana both narrated a sex education video “GREAT SEX for a LIFETIME” – www.BetterSex.com – and viewing volumes 1 & 2 can launch conversations. Older sexuality can be thrilling! Here there may be two experienced people who have a past, yet everything is still possible!

Dr. Linda De Villers author of “Love Skills – A Fun, Upbeat Guide to Sex-cessful Reltionships” and Dr. Diana discussed more about her book. This time they spoke about body-image: sometimes it’s self-image neurosis – a way to avoid being sexual, an excuse not to abandon yourself to another. The Exercises in her book can really help with these issues. And, exercising and dancing together can also help! The two Sex Docs went on to shopping with your partner. Dr. Linda appreciates the versatility and beauty of the sarong – which is covering but flowing, and easy to flick off! Sexy lingerie and dressing for sex were discussed. PLAY, be silly, don’t take yourself so damn seriously. Laugh and make each other laugh! Humor has detoxifying and defusing abilities that go a long way toward keeping relationships intact. Her book can be found on www.LoveSkills.com. Check it out!
