Dear Hyapatia,
My boyfriend and I heard something that shocked us. Is it true that it's possible to break a penis? I know it’s called a boner, but I didn't think there was really a bone in there to break. How does this work?
Jason and Maria

Dear Jason and Maria,
Yes, it’s true! It’s possible to break one's penis! Although it has no bone, once it’s erect and engorged with blood, bending it would be a very bad thing – painful and requiring surgery to fix!

Here’s an interesting fact; the human race is the only mammal not to have a bone in his penis. It’s been suggested that, in the Book of Genesis in the Bible, that when God took the rib from Adam to create Eve, He actually took the bone in Adam’s penis. Maybe that explains things.

Dear Hyapatia,
I’m very embarrassed about this problem. During sex, I think I pee. It feels like it, but there’s not a tremendous amount of urine, though it feels like I’m peeing for a long time. I’ve made sure my bladder is empty before sex, but I still pee during sex. How can I stop this?
Winona

Dear Winona,
It’s not really possible for a woman to pee during sex – at least, not a lot. It’s far more likely that feeling the urge to pee means that you’re close to orgasm and your boyfriend has found your G-spot. There is such a thing as female ejaculate. If there’s more liquid than you think there should be, it may be that you simply had a nice orgasm – or, hopefully, several orgasms -- and have ejaculated a bit. It’s perfectly normal. Google G-spot. You’ll find a ton of articles about it.

Dear Hyapatia,
I have no desire for sex. I don't know why. I don't have a girlfriend right now. But it doesn't really matter, because I wouldn't be able to have sex with her. What is wrong with me?
Darius

Dear Darius,
It’s not unusual to have a temporary loss in your sexual appetite. I wouldn’t worry about it. But if it does concern you, there are many things can cause a lack of sex drive. Are you depressed? Are you satisfied with your life? Many medications can make it difficult, if not impossible, to have sex. Have you had a physical lately? Your health can impact your sex drive. I don't know how old you are, but older men often find their sex drive decreasing. As you know, there are pills for that. It's nothing to be embarrassed about. Remember, your sex drive begins in your brain. Maybe you haven’t run in to the lady who stimulates you sufficiently.

Dear Hyapatia,
My girlfriend and I use condoms for birth control. The other night we were doing it and the condom came off inside her. We didn't notice until after we were done, and she had reason to worry that she might be pregnant. She got all upset and shit. At first, she blamed me. But I didn't do it; it just happened! It took awhile, but finally she believed me. Everything turned out okay, but since then, it’s been awkward in the bedroom. How can I convince her to relax and have sex again?
Eddie

Dear Eddie,
Reassure her during sex that the condom is still in place. Wrap your thumb and forefinger around your dick to make sure, if necessary. Tell her it’s okay -- often. Hopefully, she’ll be able to relax. 

Has she ever considered another form of birth control? It might put her mind at ease. If she doesn't want to go on birth control pills, she should ask her doctor. He can advise her of the options available. There’s no need for an unintended pregnancy with all the options available to prevent conception. The same goes for STDs.
