How many of you are your friends' go-to for sex advice?

This has pretty much always been me, since I love information and there's so much pertaining to my... err, prurient interests. So most friends come to me with things that they're too shy to talk to eachother about, and I'm not much of a gossip about it. How many of you are the same way?

There are a select group of friends I have always been very open with, and who have come to me for "advice", since I had the "straight scoop", first, because my parents were very honest and accurate, and then later, since my schooling area made me "in the know" about a number of medical topics. At my current age, none of my friends needs "sex" advice, but more like "should I have my hip replaced? Should I take this medicine or that for my high blood pressure"..ha, ha.

However, we still do have an amazing group of friends we go out with every Friday night for dinner around town, and later in the evening we retire to someone's house in the group for coffee and dessert. There, our "talks" run the gamut from sex (any topic is welcomed) to politics, religion, you name it. Often, the sex stories get quite hot and with anywhere from four to twelve (a few times more) couples in the group, there is enough variety for some great, late, super late, almost sun coming up, discussions.

I am now. I started volunteering small bits of info to my friends and am now 'mentoring' one of my friends about how to figure out her own sexual triggers. This is a bit awkward due to the personal nature, but I am having her read a lot of my reviews and have discussed various ways she could regain her sexuality and orgasms solo then incorporate it into her relationship. A bit TMI (or painful for me to talk about) sometimes, but it seems to be working for her in her relationship.

I have always been open and honest when it comes to talking about sex. I am also extremely open minded, honest and not one to judge or gossip so quite a few of my friends have come to me for advice over the years. The big ones I get asked about are what type of sex toys would I suggest that they try and information regarding various kinks or fetishes.

My best friend is also extremely open in regards to sex and sexuality, this has led to many an interesting conversation.

It's worse when they ask you that, if you have the ability to write prescriptions for it! Of course, you legally, morally and ethically cannot do that for "friends at a party" or some neighbor chatting with you on the driveway, on a Sunday morning in your PJ's as you get the paper, but just try telling them that you can't!!! Ouch.

I am. I'm not all, "Oooh, Check out this new toy!" but if someone says something that is incorrect, I'm the first one to tell them, "It's not as bad as you might think, and here's why..." Or, "have you ever tried..."

Also, I usually let people tell me whatever they want to tell me instead of directly asking for the info. You might be surprised with what people are willing to tell you.

Hmmm.... I grew up reserved in a reserved family and marriage. When I divorced I found that I did not want to be reserved at all, but still people insist on seeing me that way. I am not open in a wild way (just sometimes with trusted people) but wish there was more even just 'basic' talk about sex.Whether they think so or not, it does exist....lol.

The nearest I got was a taxi driver (female) who said to me after I was divorced. 'You're going to have to give it up someday' I told her ...I already had. Later she knew the circumstances, he was quite a bit younger and " hu--". She practically ran off the road. lol

She also told me where to shop for intimate stuff and would drop $500 a month on it. This was way before EF days, or I could have told her to look here.

I used to be the very quiet and shy girl. Now, I'm not really sure what has happened? My inner Vixen took over, I found Eden, I found my voice, definitely found lots of toys, and I guess that lead to a wee more vocal "me". Now, my friends are a bit shocked at what I'm willing to talk about lol. I don't exactly go offering unwanted advice, but if asked, I will gladly give an earful now. If I hear a friend is unsatisfied, who has a willing and able man, I quickly say, "Oh girl, we don't have time for that. You just grab him and ride the hell out of him, catch him off guard, give him something to say---Damn about!!!" That's advice #1
