Sex should be the most natural thing in the world. Anything as powerful as the human sexual drive should be clear-cut and relatively easy, right?

Sexologist answers questions about the effects of stress on libido, whether it’s acceptable for busy businesswomen to use male escorts, whether circumcision will change sexual performance, and why the first time is often so disappointing.
