Sex, Men, Women & Darwin

Sex, Men, Women & Darwin

Darwinian theories of survivability and “spreading speed” have long dominated the thinking on male and female sexual attitudes.  However, there have been some recent studies that have challenged traditional thinking on these matters and these were noted in a recent article in the New York Times (Dan Slater, January 13, 2013). For example, the idea

Solo on Valentine’s Day? No Biggie – Here’s How to Cope!

Solo on Valentine’s Day?  No Biggie – Here’s How to Cope!

Probably the first thing to realize about Valentine’s Day is that it is really created largely by merchandising executives and it carries little spiritual gravitas.  As a result, the possibility of not actually “celebrating” the day begins to really make sense. We don’t usually celebrate any other Thursday (unless its someone’s birthday or Thanksgiving!), so

Can a CPAP Machine Improve Your Sex Life?

Can a CPAP Machine Improve Your Sex Life?

For those who are not familiar with it, CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) is a mask-and-tube device that few might call “sexy.” Worn during sleep, it sends a steady flow of air through the mask into breathing passages to keep airways open and restore depleted oxygen levels. It’s the most common and effective treatment for

Cuddling? Falling Asleep? What Happens After Doing “It?”

Cuddling? Falling Asleep? What Happens After Doing “It?”

There seem to be only two post-coitus scenarios in popular culture: smoking a cigarette or the woman languorously rolling, wanting some conversation and being met by snoring from her partner! Unfortunately, there has not been a lot of research focusing on “afterglow” moments. However, in 2011, Dan Kruger and Susan Hughes (evolutionary psychologists at the

Am I Too Old To Date?

Am I Too Old To Date?

I have been asked this question by men who are in their 80s as well as by men who are in their 60s. The answer to all of them, without reservation, is NO.  You are never too old to date.  And I speak from experience.  Remember, you have a lot to offer as a mature

Her Sensory Comfort Zone

Her Sensory Comfort Zone

In our research, we’ve discovered that the necessity of female companionship for us Suddenly Solos varies greatly.  It is apparent that as we have matured, many of us do not “require” a woman’s company for happiness, but most of us still enjoy having female friends and acquaintances… with varying levels of familiarity. We have found

Online Dating Update

Online Dating Update

Much has been written about online dating (we at Suddenly Solo have certainly been contributors to the collective knowledge base!).  Like it or not, online dating will continue to be in almost every single person’s quiver of Eros-arrows.  And as we’ve noted in our book, the over 50-demographic is the fastest-growing segment of online daters.

Pick-Up Proficiency: What Works?

Pick-Up Proficiency: What Works?

As we note in our Suddenly Solo book, the male/female odds as we age are in our favor.  There are more single women out there than there are single men.  But that doesn’t directly correlate to there being a surfeit of “quality” women that possess all the qualities you are looking for.  So, it is

And don’t change the oil! Women who use lubricant have better sex, more orgasms.

And don’t change the oil!   Women who use lubricant have better sex, more orgasms.

A survey of 2,453 women conducted by sex researcher Debby Herbenick, Ph.D. at Indiana University concluded that women who use lube during sex have significantly more sexual pleasure and satisfaction than those who don’t. The study found that more than one-third of the time that lubricant was used for any type of sex, women used

The Mature Woman’s List of Turn-Offs and Turn-Ons

Tastes change with age.  Most of us hated the taste of beer when we were given a sip by our dads as young lads.  And now, most of us genuinely enjoy a good brew.  Well, the same thing applies to what women look for (or avoid) in a man as they age. In a study
