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,
I'm 22, pretty, smart, witty and completely fabulous. I've been dating my current boyfriend for almost a year. We've been living together for about 5 months and he's driving me crazy! This is my first real relationship...

Before we started dating I was a wild party girl. Once we starting getting serious, I calmed down and changed my ways because he said I wasn't single anymore and I needed to stop acting like it. He did have a point.
Now I'm working hard taking care of my two 90 year old grandparents and trying to finish my last year of college.

My problem is that he hates all my friends because they're single and still like to have a good time. Did I mention that he's a "glass half empty" kind of guy? He's been cheated on in the past and all these issues are projecting into our relationship. Lately he's been super controlling and I feel like he's trying to change me into the girl version of him...did I mention he's a workaholic?

It's currently my spring break and I want to go out with my friends, but when he heard this he said it was inappropriate for me to get all dressed up to go to a dance club. I like to dance and have a good time, but he won't take me dancing and doesn't want me going out with my friends. Meanwhile I've never given him a reason to not trust me, ever!

I love this man, but I've always hated seeing my friends in these kind of relationships and I refuse to let myself be in one.

IS BREAKING UP PRETTY MUCH MY ONLY OPTION???
