Tonight’s theme for the Adult Sex-Ed Salon: How to Negotiate Sexual Disparity in a Relationship: Some vs. None, Light vs. Heavy, BDSM vs. Vanilla, More vs. Less, all extremes and differences. Attendees will get to submit questions anonymously and the audience will share experiences and insights. I will provide suggestions based on studies and what I have learned through my private practice.

Walter (“not from another planet, but he is another planet,” labeled Jon reader at the Salon. Walter will help facilitate this portion of the Salon.


The following information is taken from Brittany Policastro’s site. I don’t know her, but do know Dr. Timaree Schmit, PhD. She will certainly bring her sex-positive outlook on sexuality to the event.

In this unique and powerful collaboration I am teaming up with sexologist and sex educator, Dr. Timaree Schmit PhD. and we are bringing you tools, yoga practices, conversations and education about sex, sexuality and sexual health in a safe and judgment free environment.

Tonight-The Erotic Literary Salon + The Adult Sex-Ed Salon – Live, May Masturbation Month-Ejaculation & Orgasm

To honor masturbation month the Adult Sex-Ed Salon will focus on self-pleasure. How it benefits sexual health and informs our sexual pleasure with partner/s. Come with lots of questions regarding the act of masturbation, orgasm and ejaculation.

Did you know: …ejaculation and orgasm don’t actually need to happen at the same time. Why? Ejaculation and orgasm are two separate responses to stimulation. Ejaculation refers to the physical reflex that releases semen, and orgasm refers to the feeling of climax or pleasure as a result of physical and/or psychological stimulation.

For some men, orgasm and ejaculation both happen…but not at the same time. Some men may ejaculate after orgasm or before orgasm. Some men may not ejaculate at all. Other men might ejaculate but fail to orgasm.

If a man experiences early, late or no ejaculation, it’s time to see a doctor or urologist. Several different health conditions may influence the way a man’s body responds to stimulation. One example isretrograde ejaculation which occurs when, instead of exiting out of the penis, semen flows into the bladder. While this usually isn’t harmful to a man’s health, he may notice that he doesn’t ejaculate when he orgasms…and, in some cases, retrograde ejaculation can signal a complication with diabetes or medications.

Is Female Ejaculation the Same as Orgasm?

By Dr. Debby Herbenick



When women squirt, is it the same thing as them having an orgasm? Or are they different?

My response: 

Female ejaculation (aka “squirting”) involves women releasing fluids through their urethra during sexual excitement or orgasm. It was described in some detail in the 1980s book The G Spot and has since gained all sorts of attention in various porn films. In reality, we don’t understand a whole lot about female ejaculation. Some studies have found that the fluids released are distinctly different from urine; in other research, it seems that some women are emitting a urine-like fluid. Generally, though, women who release fluids during sex are NOT peeing accidentally—just as men are not either. But because both men’s and women’s ejaculations occur through the urethra, there may be some urine-like residue still in the tube.

How common is it for women to squirt? We don’t know as there has been no good population based studies on the subject. Is it the same as orgasm? Well, it happens at the same time as orgasm for some women. Other women, however, squirt but do not orgasm. And even more commonly, women orgasm but do not squirt. In this way, it seems similar to men’s orgasm. Though men usually ejaculate when they orgasm, ejaculation and orgasm are actually two different processes.
