POLL: Gone in Sixty Seconds

Friday, May 11, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Q.: My new boyfriend is... a little quick on the trigger. He's really embarrassed about it, and refuses to talk when it happens. I like him a lot, and I don't want to break up, but our intimate relationship is suffering badly. Any advice?

POLL: What should she do?
39% (695) Don't try to talk to him right after it happens. Discuss it during a neutral time, in a relaxed and understanding way.
11% (197) Suggest he see his doctor. It might be medically related.
6% (122) Suggest he "take care of business" before attempting any couples time. He should last longer the second time around.
1% (23) This rarely gets better. Move on.
3% (64) Use condoms or desensitizing cremes.
37% (664) Next time it happens, he should focus on *your* enjoyment -- in other ways. He may be ready for Round 2 after that.
1765 people have voted in this poll. (This poll is not active.)

POLL: Passing fancy... or a fancy pass?

Friday, May 04, 2012 - 07:50 AM

Q.: I've been friends with Marie for several years. A few weeks ago, several couples went on a camping trip. As we were cleaning up from dinner one evening, Marie's husband said he was going for a short hike and asked if anybody wanted to join him. Thinking nothing of it, I accepted his invitation. Once we were pretty far removed from the others, he cornered me against some trees and told me how attractive I am, and how nobody would ever have to know. It was horrifying. I fumbled through an excuse to head back to camp, and stayed glued to my husband for the rest of the weekend. I haven't told anybody. Should I tell me best friend that her husband made a pass at me?

Do you have a question for CD? Send it in!
POLL: Her friend's husband made a pass at her. Should she tell her friend about her husband's attempted infidelity?
73% (1396) Absolutely! She needs to know about this!
15% (288) Maybe. If she finds out that the husband has made passes at other women, too.
2% (47) Nah. Nothing happened. Nothing to report.
9% (179) Only if she wants to lose that friend.
