Stuff you can ask CLEO.
Q The other night while my fiancé was in the bathroom, I went in to retrieve something and found him washing his genitals in the sink! It was gross! Is this a men-thing or is mine a freak? A A He’s not a freak and this is a thing some – not all – men do. You’re right in saying it’s rather gross but at least he’s keeping his junk spotless for you. As long as he cleans up afterwards, it’s really not a big deal. David David Q I was left jarred when I found out my partner had gotten ball-bearing penile implants. Is this normal? A There’s no universal standard for what is and isn’t normal but perhaps it would be good for you to have an open discussion with your partner about this. Allow him to express his thoughts and feelings about this without judgement, and you should do the same too. Validate and support each other, then come to a decision as a couple. Dr. Edward Q Is it common for a man to have a crooked penis? A Yes, it is. In fact, a straight penis may not be a good sign. In some men, it’s hard to spot this crookedness whereas in others, it may be more obvious. But don’t worry if your partner has a crooked penis. As long as you are able to have sex with one another, it should not be an issue. Sometimes, couples have to change intercourse positions to accommodate the “crookedness” of the penis.
Dr. Edward Q It’s important to my husband that I’m sexually satisfied but the problem is that once we reach the point that it’s all about me, I become tense. This in turn elongates my “process”, making it difficult to happen. Should I tell him to stop? Or fake it?
A polite yes to the first and a definite no to the second. Faking orgasm may allay his ego but when the lie eventually surfaces, he will feel hurt and betrayed. So instead of telling him to stop, find something you’d like him to do more of and use that as a starting point. Also, explain that although you appreciate his effort, sometimes it just doesn’t happen for you but you’re keen to explore new tips and techniques with him. David Q My partner doesn’t seem to be as interested as I am in having sex. Should I just wait it out or talk to him about it? A Desire for sex is a tricky matter. Perhaps it’s your timing because the male testosterone is at its peak in the morning and lowest at night. So approaching him for sex in the morning might be better. Try building the desire for each other throughout the day with texts or calls. If all else fails, invite your partner to get his sex hormone levels tested, as it may be low due to dietary and environmental factors and stressors.
