Dear Dr. P, What do you think about the Madonna-Whore Syndrome? It seems that guys separate women into two categories—one they date and sleep with, and one they marry—and I don’t think this is fair.
The Madonna-Whore Syndrome cuts both ways. A Father-Don Juan complex exists also. There are women who find that they are [...]Continue Reading →
I’m going home for Thanksgiving, like most people are. I’m really excited for the small break in the middle of all this hecticness.

“Dear Dr. P, my significant other and I sometimes like to play games or fantasize being somebody other than ourselves when we make love. Why do some people fantasize or role play in their sexual relationships?”

I’ve noticed over the past few months I’ve put on a few pounds. I’ve been the same weight since my sophomore year of high school and, I’ll admit, I’m a little afraid of the freshman fifteen. I’m not sure why I’ve been putting on weight or how to deal with it. Any suggestions?

Dear Dr. P. ,
Does altitude affect sexual activity and how does it relate to the “Mile High Club?”
Mile-High Club membership is contingent in having had sexual activity in an aircraft at an altitude of 5,280 feet or higher. Unfortunately, residents of Denver, Colorado “The Mile High City” do not qualify for membership in [...]Continue Reading →
Everyone is so amped up about No-Shave November. Unfortunately it seems that only men are allowed to participate, or that is the social norm, it seems. I really don’t like shaving my legs and I want to participate in No-Shave November. I also think that it is not fair that it is socially [...]Continue Reading →
“Dear Dr. P., Do tongue and genital piercings really enhance sexual pleasure? Are they safe and worth it?”
Rosanna Arquette’s character in “Pulp Fiction” explains her new tongue piercing with, “It makes oral sex more interesting.” Whether this is true is relatively subjective. To paraphrase the old saying, “It’s not whether the tongue is pierced [...]Continue Reading →
Everyone keeps talking about President’s Ball coming up. I’m not dating anyone so there is no obvious “we’re going together” and I’m not sure who to ask or if it’s okay to just go alone?
Single and Lonely
It is perfectly okay to go without a “date”. I’d even dare to [...]Continue Reading →
Dr. P, Speaker, Amber Madison, seemed to assume that most if not all her coed listeners were sexually active, even with multiple partners. Do you see ANY value in limiting your partners or waiting until marriage?
I see MUCH value in limiting your romantic or sexuoerotic relationships or even waiting until marriage.
I can not [...]Continue Reading →
When I came to college I expected to become close friends with my roommate and hall mates. I am very close with my roommate but the people down the hall and I have constant quarrels.

Dear Dr. P: “What do you make of our preoccupation about nipples?”
The reason we are mammals, as opposed to birds or amphibians, is because we as a species possess in both sexes mammary glands and nipples.
In the female they function both as primary erogenous zones and as the source of sustenance for our [...]Continue Reading →
Dearest Susan Zelda,
I’m really stressed about my upcoming midterms. In the past, I’ve never done very well on midterm tests and projects. I want to do well on my midterms, but I don’t want to be a hermit in my room during the last week before fall break. How do I balance study time [...]Continue Reading →
Dear Dr. P, Is the G-spot real or a myth? Does every woman have one? How do you find it?
Gee, why do you ask?
Indian texts from the 11th century refer to an area in the anterior vagina that gave pleasure. Later, in 1950, the German gynecologist Ernest Gräfenberg also described an eroticizing area [...]Continue Reading →
I started a part-time job recently and it’s going well. I make enough that I don’t have to ask my parents for money, it fits well into my schedule and I like what I do. There are a few people I work with that are absolutely lazy. They’re always asking for help on [...]Continue Reading →
I’ve read about things like chocolate and oysters being aphrodisiacs, but I’ve never really considered them. Is there such a thing as a love potion?

I have a problem with one of my teachers. This particular teacher rides the line between praise and destruction. I feel like I’m doing so well in the class and then I’m torn down when I’m told that I, alone am bringing down the class average. How should I proceed in my academic [...]Continue Reading →
Dear Dr. P.: I’ve come to college and left my sweetheart back home. We’ve promised to be true and stay together regardless of the separation and distance. Are long-distance relationships, where those involved are more than an hour away and see each other about once a month, a good idea or do they all end [...]Continue Reading →
Being back at school isn’t going quite as well as I’d imagined. The last few weeks of summer I was ready to come back, but now that I’m here it just hasn’t lived up to my expectations. Classes are going great but it seems like everyone is doing something different now and none [...]Continue Reading →
Dear Dr. P,
I recently saw an article saying that oral sex causes oral cancer. How can this be true? It seems to be a scare tactic invented by sexual puritans.
It is both true and scary.
I too saw the article that clearly stated that oral sex was now the main [...]Continue Reading →
