Hyapatia,
I have read what you have written about Native American sexual teachings and your heritage. I would like to hear more about that. Tell me about all the different kinds of women and what they like. Also, did the Native Americans smoke tobacco or pot in their peace pipes?
Roger

Dear Roger,
You’re asking quite a bit in this this space, but I’ll give you a taste. “Dancing Woman” has small inner lips, and a tiny clit. She likes direct clitoral stimulation, grinding with sex and likes to have her clitoris sucked on. “Wolf Woman” has larger thin protruding lips. She likes it hard and fast when she is ready to come.  She often has a tilted uterus; so she doesn't like it too deep. “Buffalo Woman” has very thick pussy lips, likes lots of foreplay and doggy-style. The clitoris of “Deer Woman” is usually not hooded, or slightly hooded, and is close to her opening. She likes deep thrusting. “Sheep Woman” likes to be on top a lot and likes spooning as well. She has a long, smooth clit and hood.

As far as what Native Americans smoked, many tribes smoked a “tobacco” mixture called kinnickinnick, a blend of barberry, bayberry, uva ursi and other herbs. Whether Native Americans smoked cannabis continues to be a matter of debate, but many tribes insist cannabis was smoked. It was used for occasions like healings, personal medicine or simple relaxation – just like today.

Dear Hyapatia,
I have heard lots of things about masturbation, and I imagine most of them are lies. But two things I’ve heard have me wondering. Number one, if I’m going to play a physically challenging sport, should I refrain from sex the night before a big game? I’ve heard of coaches telling their players this. Also, if I masturbate too much, will this cause shrinkage?
J.

Dear J.
I’ve heard about coaches’ pre-game advice. I guess they’d know better than I would, since I’ve never participated in sports like that. Boxers are often known to refrain from sex several days before fights. But that may be a matter of maintaining total concentration. Personally, I don’t see how sex could detract from performance – unless you’re doing it for hours! As a dancer, I feel that having sex before a big performance makes no difference one way or another.

As for masturbation causing shrinkage – no way! The only things that I know of that cause shrinkage are cold temperatures, steroids, and stress -- like someone bitching at you, trauma or financial worries. Hopefully, these are temporary issues

Dear Hyapatia,
My girlfriend and I have been living with each other for almost a year now. We used to have sex in the shower every day. Now, we never do. What has happened to our relationship? Our sex in bed is still good and all, but the fire we had seems to have dimmed. What can I do to get it back? There’s nothing like starting the day like that.
Brian

Dear Brian,
Your relationship may be just fine. It could be that she just doesn't really enjoy sex in the shower that much anymore. It isn't the best place for women to enjoy themselves. Standing up is not the most pleasant of positions and water isn’t a good lube. After a while, it can be irritating. Maybe that’s the problem. Do you continue to have sex at night? Do you try other places besides bed and the shower? If you are, then you're probably not doing anything wrong and there’s nothing to worry about. If your passion has cooled off a bit, it’s totally normal, but there are ways to get it back! Be creative and romantic and see what happens.

Dear Hyapatia,
If sex with animals is called bestiality, what is sex with plants called? My girlfriend says I love my weed more than her, so I was just wondering what I would be called if I chose my plants over her.
David

Dear David,
I guess that would be called “veg-inal" intercourse. But I think the better question is “What would you call a guy who chooses his plants over your girlfriend?” How about “asshole” or something like that?
