Sex is something that drives us, empowers us and gets us into really stupid situations with people we have no business seeing naked. Jen Sincero is the bestselling author and sexpert with the carnal knowledge you need. Ask her your questions (all are posted anonymously). Cuz there's no such thing as being too good in bed.

Dear Jen,
One afternoon I found myself waiting for your column to arrive in my inbox. Since that wasn't happening, and I like to be proactive, I went to your website to see what I could find. I was delighted to see that you host workshops and parties for bisexual and bicurious folks, but I was disappointed to discover that they are for "ladies only." I don't begrudge the bi girls their dick-free experimentation, but why don't you (or anyone else) host parties and workshops like this for bisexual and bicurious men, or for men and women together? Don't you think we bicurious guys could benefit from such events?

Dear Same,
I would like to take a moment here to talk about merkins. For those of you yet to be enlightened, a merkin is a pubic wig. The thing that’s always baffled me about the merkin, other than how you actually put one on, is that it has a name. Naming something implies that enough people use it to warrant needing something to call it, but I recently polled 20 friends (and I have some special friends) and not one of them claimed to have ever used, or known anyone who’s ever used, a merkin. Meanwhile, the thingy you slip under a table leg to keep it from wobbling remains nameless, as does my 20-pound cat, The Big Guy.
