*I’m trying to keep up with my new year’s resolutions Can you tell me whether enthusiastic sex can considered aerobic exercise?
It would depend on how enthusiastic and acrobatic the sex was. I can see the advantage of no gym membership or special athletic costumes or shoes If it gets your heart rate up and your blood circulating it’s certainly a hell of a lot more fun than jumping jacks or stationery bicycles. I’m tempted to say “Go for the burn!”…but maybe not.
* I am afraid my boyfriend is a porn addict. How can I tell for sure?
Using pornography at all or “too much” is a matter of judgment, both yours and his. I am not a fan of the whole field of addictionology, making an illness out of “inappropriate” behaviors. If your guy uses pornography as an escape from work or interpersonal relationships, if he spends money on it that is needed elsewhere, if he risks trouble with the law or if what he does makes him feel bad about himself he definitely has a problem that needs addressing. But if this a matter of his using porn occasionally in private and you not liking the fact of its use at all, the problem is between the two of you and that can be addressed by a discussion of values, perhaps with the aid of a good counselor.
* I am a woman in my 60’s. I have always had large breasts that were not particularly sensitive to stimulation. Since I have never had a child I have always laughed that they were more decorative than functional. Over the years, of course, gravity has taken its toll and my breasts are now quite droopy. The odd thing is my nipples have recently become quite sensitive to touch. Why would that change now at my age do you think?
If the change in sensitivity were one nipple only I would urge a medical consultation. Changes in sensitivity might indicate something wrong. Since it’s both nipples I would guess that the newer weight distribution of your breasts has affected nerve sensitivity. Or, perhaps your new love, if there is one, touches you differently than you’ve been touched in the past. I would be happy to hear any explanation from readers who have one.
