“Dear Ms. Mix and Bitch,
I’m a 20-year-old guy who has just started dating a 35-year-old, newly divorced woman. She’s the best thing to ever happen to me. I really like her a lot. We have only dated for a few weeks, but we haven’t slept together yet. While I have slept with plenty of girls, she would be my first real woman, ya know? And it scares the shit out of me. I know to college girls, I’m great in bed, but I don’t know if I will measure up to her. Before she was married, she told me she had a lot of boyfriends. I can sense she’d getting restless with me – and if I keep her waiting much longer, both of us will explode. But if I suck at it, I’m afraid she’ll bolt. Can you offer any sex tips? I would figure since you have a husband and kids, that you two are probably close in age.
So you’ve fallen for a cougar and you’re wondering if you can claw with the best of them. I wish more guys would ask older women this question. Would save lots of time and aggravation.
Before I get into the sex advice, let me just say this: be careful. Dating anyone fresh off of a painful divorce may result in suffering from the rebound effect. If you were just in it for a good time, then fine. However, you saying she’s the best thing to ever happen to you says to me you’ve fallen hard. Don’t get me wrong…love is amazing at any age. However, being in my thirties myself, I find it difficult to see how a 35-year-old can take someone your age anymore seriously than a recuperative roll in the hay. But hey, I may be wrong. Older guys are constantly falling for women much younger than themselves, and doing just fine. What’s good for the goose, right?
O.k., that out of the way, I have a three-tiered approach for pleasing a woman in bed:
(1) Do your homework
Order some books online on pleasing women in bed, or go down to a sex positive shop (if you were in San Fran, I’d send you to www.GoodVibrations.com – in places like this, you could go right up to the counter, share your dilemma, and they’d hook you up) – watch some porn directed by women. I personally learned some of my best moves from good ol’ classic porn (my husband is VERY grateful I did). Peruse through the Jenna Jameson cannon for some pointers (literally).
(2) Worship, Worship, Worship Her
There’s nothing more alluring for a woman than a man that is totally into her body in bed. And not just her breasts or the parts you like. Everything, everywhere. Rub, kiss, or lick the small of her back or the inside of her thighs. Tell her she’s the most beautiful, sexy woman you’ve ever seen. And last, and CERTAINLY, not least….savor going down on her. When I was single, if I was dating a guy that either didn’t give head or felt he was just rushing through it, I’d dumped his sorry ass fast. Trust me, we can tell if you’re just phoning it in. Conversely, I have stayed with certain men longer than I would have intended because they were so orally gifted.
Also, DON’T keep asking her what she wants you to do to her in bed – once or twice, fine. But over and over again, then we end up feeling like a traffic cop – and that’s no fun, my friend. Instead, learn the cues she’s giving you physically. Does she moan a little louder when you hit a particular sweet spot? Or does she tense up and try to wiggle away a bit? Everyone is different and what turned on one woman may make another one cringe. So pay attention.
(3) Be Confident
Nothing serves as a better afrodiasiac for a woman than a confident (not cocky) man. If you don’t feel as such, fake it ’til you make it, young stud. Remember, she likes you. Enjoy that!
Good luck, young stud. You are experiencing the stuff that writes great memoirs.
