Cheating Man Child! [Ask Dr. Miro: What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro, Why does a man have to cheat to make himself feel secure? I keep dating these guys who HAVE to go screw other women in order for them to feel OK. The way they have worded it, after I catch them, makes sense but then I step away and I realize it’s a load of bulls**t. Sincerely, Hurt Too Many Times Dear HTMT, First off, no one has to cheat to make his or herself secure. Feeling good about yourself is something that comes from with in. No amount of extra curricular sexcapades will increase a person’s self worth. Sounds like you have been with a few too many insecure jerks. Not that I like to put a negative label on anything but,...

Alcohol & Mature Sperm! [Ask Dr. Miro: What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro, Although my man never drank excessively, he quit alcohol about 3 weeks ago. How long does it take for his sperm to not be effected? We want to make a healthy baby. Sincerely, Ready & Waiting Dear R&W, Since it takes between two to three months for sperm to fully mature, I would give yourselves that for fresh, never tasted alcohol, swimmers. However, keep in mind that many intoxicated folks have made babies – healthy ones, even. It is true that extreme drinking (or any other excessive behavior) may lead to fetal complications so be aware of other factors in your lives. Eat right, drink (non-alcoholic) fluids, get...

OH O – Where Are You? [Ask Dr. Miro: What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro, I don’t think I’ve ever had an orgasm. My boyfriend noticed after sex I still want more and my clitoris isn’t sensitive so I’m not coming, right? And, he’s very insecure because he feels like he hasn’t done his job in making me come. He does everything he can but I feel like it’s me… Like I just can’t and I don’t even know what that feeling is supposed to feel like. I’ve asked him for more foreplay and to last longer – he does but I don’t think there is anything he can do. I’m really attracted to him and wonder what’s wrong with me. What are your suggestions into how to have an orgasm and is...

Do Thin Condoms Break Easier? [Ask Dr. Miro: What You Didn't Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro: My man has a hard time staying, well, hard with regular condoms and likes using the thinner ones but I’m worried they won’t be as strong and maybe break on us? Is this true? I’ve had condoms break in the past and it was TERRIBLE! Sincerely, Helpless For His Hard On   Dear HFHHO, Regardless of how thin a condom may be, it must pass the same rigorous tests as all of the other ones set down by the U.S. Food And Drug Administration. The ultra-thin condoms may be easier to tear with jewelry or raggedy nails so watch out for that but as far as the usual (or unusual) thrusts and explosions, the thinner prophylactics will be as...

High Altitude Sperm Production! [Ask Dr. Miro: What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class]

Dear Dr. Miro, I travel a lot. My wife and I are trying to have a baby. I heard that sperm production is reduced at high altitudes. Will my frequent flying affect our chances? I know I could Google this but I prefer your answers. Sincerely, Guy In The Sky   Dear GITS, Studies have shown sperm production reduces at high altitudes but then, it returns after being at sea level for a bit. What folks experience at high altitudes that more likely effects sperm production and motility is the lack of oxygen. As long as the plane you are on has proper air levels you should be fine. The other thing to look out for is that sitting on your...
