Sex can be a touchy subject to talk about, but it's an important part of any relationship. Studies show people are happiest when they have a satisfying sex life.

Here's some homework suggested by sex board certified therapist Dr. Diana Wiley that couples can do. Warning: This is mature subject matter and intended for adults only.

Favorites - A list

Tell your partner that he or she has 10 minutes to answer these questions about you – and then answer them about him or her.

Favorite color?


Sexual position?

Closest friend?

Ice Cream?

Perfume or cologne?



Vacation spot?

Foreplay technique?

Place to be touched?

Place to be licked?

Place to be kissed?

Place to be stroked?

Sexual fantasy?

Place to make love?

Time of day to make love?

How did he or she do?  What does he or she need to learn?  How did you do? In what ways should you pay more attention to your partner? It’s all about sharing and caring!


Additional homework

Write down three things he’d like to try with you sexually tonight – and you do the same. 

If there things on the list you are not comfortable with, try for some creative thinking so that you can come up with a satisfying compromise.

Please enjoy a playful attitude about the whole process!  If there are glitches, assure them that everything is negotiable, and if they are not comfortable with an idea on your list, calmly suggest you skip it and move on to the next one.

Just for her

In a survey of more than five hundred men about what made a woman a great lover, do you know what made the top of the list?  ENTHUSIASM.  Men want you to initiate sex more and let them know what you want.
