This special “tipsy” edition of Sex With Emily comes at you live, straight from Emily’s living room! She, Menace and the whole team take a drink or two (okay, or three) in hopes of producing the first ever “party” podcast, but it’s not all fun and drinking games—They also go in depth on the topic of ghosting and take the “Sex Question Quickie” Challenge… Well, they do the best they can.

In 2012, I got one of the more surprising calls I’ve received in a career full of surprises: could I come on Loveline as a weekly guest co-host?
I was, honestly, thoroughly intimidated; since the moment I launched Sex with Emily in 2005, Loveline had been a touchstone. Rarely a day passed that someone didn’t say, “Oh, so is your show like Loveline?”
In my time on the show, I’ve learned not only about a phone sex operator and avid semen collector who received weekly “gifts” from her clients, but also that Drew Pinsky and Mike Catherwood are even more inspiring than Loveline die-hards know. Continue Reading
I currently live with my boyfriend of five years, whom I love so much. Recently, we completely stopped having sex for almost a year because we were so busy starting our careers. We realized this was a big problem and have been working on ways to improve it, mostly by planning out times to have sex. It’s going well, we’re having sex more often, but now it feels like there’s no spontaneity left. What are some ways we can fix this and bring the excitement back?
Let me preface this by saying, good for you, J! It’s great that you and your partner were able to recognize the problem in the bedroom and are now working to make sex a priority. It might not feel like the stuff of romance novels—“Today’s To-Do List: Exercise, cook dinner, fold laundry, have sex”—but the good news is, you’re on the right track! Continue Reading
It’s spring, you know what that means! Animals are mating, flowers are blooming and for some of us, it’s the season for relationship spring cleaning. Continue Reading
It’s that time of year again: time for spring cleaning, where it’s out with the old and in with the new. People start to go through their closets and cupboards, deciding what stays and what goes—it’s therapeutic, refreshing, and a long-standing tradition.
Along with last season’s sweaters and that broken down toaster oven, spring cleaning also presents us with the opportunity to take a really hard look at our relationships. This is a time for getting rid of possessions AND people that no longer serve you; a time to reevaluate your negative behaviors, throw out whatever isn’t working, and spice up your daily routine.

Q: Hi Emily!
I’m 24 and my boyfriend is 42, and lately we have been having problems with his—as he calls it—“retroactive jealousy”. Though I am much younger than him, I’ve had many more lovers than he has. As a result, he’s always bringing up my past experiences and comparing them to his own. He constantly bombards me with questions and asks me to recall memories that I would rather not think about. Is it okay that he’s asking me to divulge my sexual history to him? What good could possibly come of it? How do I help him understand that my past has nothing to do with our present?
