"I have no complaints about my sex life, but after a few years with my boyfriend, it would be great to spice things up. Problem is, I’m not very creative. Any suggestions that aren’t cheesy or too cliché?"

Tell mommy, has sex become a square you check off of your list?
Marriage and sex therapists help couples sort out the barriers in their pre-baby lives, but couples who know what the problem is and are looking for a quick fix may want to seek out a weekend-long seminar.
Carrie Grange Isaacson, better known as the Baby Maven, offers a number of seminars around the country and believes that strong relationships, including an active sex life, make for better parenting. Her current lecture, "Bootie After Baby," teaches couples how to flirt after marriage, how to turn overtures into invitations, and how to reintroduce passion while there is a baby crying in the next room.
Would you consider attending a sex after baby seminar to get grooving again?
We're all feeling the effects of the bad economy right now — having to cut back on vacations, expensive clothes, and dinners out — but some experts are saying that the recession is affecting people's love lives too. Couples are stressed about money so they're arguing more, going out less, and just not in the mood to have sex. Even though sex can take your mind off your problems, too much stress can be a major turnoff. According to a survey from the Daily Beast, 21 percent of people admitted to having less sex than usual. Some would call that a sexual recession, but what about you? Has the recent economic downtown put a damper on your sex life?
Last weekend I asked you all to share the one thing you'd change about your relationship, and though your responses were all over the board, a few of you alluded to making changes in your sex life. Having a healthy sex life takes a lot of communication in the bedroom, so do tell, if you could change one thing about what happens behind closed doors, what would it be? And don't be shy, I'm sure your gripes aren't far off from everyone else's!
I'm all for a little embellishing when it comes to chatting about what happens in the bedroom, but how do you feel about outright lying? Are there times when it's appropriate to fib about what guy you've done it with, how often you and your man have sex, or how good it is? Have you ever felt the need to lie to your friends in order to impress them? Of course lying about such a private matter won't really hurt anyone, but tell me, where do you stand when it comes to lying to your friends about your sex life?
We all dream of meeting someone wonderful to love. Someone with a zippy sense of humor, someone who's caring enough to bring us soup when we're sick, and someone smart enough to share an interesting conversation with. It helps if you find him attractive, and it really helps if your time in the bedroom is all about thrilling passion and fireworks. So I'm wondering how you would rate your sex life right now. Do tell, are things better than ever under the sheets, or are you pretty unsatisfied with the lack of excitement and pleasure?
My husband is 32 years old and thinks it's normal to talk about his sex life with his mother. When we were dating, his mom once told me that I should learn how to give a good blow job in order to attract him more. Then one Valentine's Day, she was the one that told me the kind of lingerie he likes! I was extremely grossed out but at that time, since I was so crazy about him, I did not give importance to the weirdness. He tells me that a lot of men talk about their sex life to their moms, even at his age. This makes me very uncomfortable to say the least, and I can't help but constantly feel embarrassed around her. Am I correct in thinking that he's overstepping by talking to his mom about our intimate sex life or is this kind of relationship in fact as normal as he claims? — Grossed Out Gretta
