This past year, there’s been talk of pole-dancing being recognized as a sport in the Olympics. Many people think the idea is laughable, but I don’t. Although for me, pole-dancing isn’t a sport as much as a dance form its...

Dear Sophie, I want to impress my boyfriend and be super sexy; however, in reality I am pretty gawky and awkward. I never know what to say or how to be enticing, and when I try to be an awesome foreplay goddess I fall flat. How...

Dear Sophie, My boyfriend has been wanting to try anal, but honestly I can't see any good in it. I'd imagine that it would be painful and not feel good for me at all! Isn't my vagina good enough? Of course your vagina is good enough...

Dear Sophie,   What do you do if one of your friends asks if you know anyone who would want to be in a threesome and then hints that they want you? It was super awkward and I didn’t know what to say. I guess that depends...
