QUESTION: I have a slightly enlarged labia minora and I am wondering how common this is. I've had both oral sex and intercourse before and I've never had a complaint from my partner. But sometimes it can be inconvenient and even annoying. What would you suggest if I ever get a complaint about it?

QUESTION:Â My boyfriend thinks I should get turned on when he comes. I enjoy the fact that he came, and I feel happy and accomplished, but not turned on. Is this normal? Also, when we both get worked up then I start to focus on him, I start to get less turned on because I'm too focused on getting him to finish. He thinks I should be turned on by the fact that I'm performing the sexual actsâ€”is it normal that I'm not?
As most of my calls are about genital herpes, I thought Iâ€™d clear the air. TV shows, movies, and society as a whole create this stigma around herpes when really, thereâ€™s not too much to be scared of. Most of the time, genital herpes is a mild skin condition that can be managed very effectively.
I know what you may be thinking but no-not those kinds of holes! Iâ€™m talking about the holes in the healthcare system. Practically all my calls are from people who have already been diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection but donâ€™t know what to do next.
