Sexpert Advice

Sexpert Advice

Normally when you consult an expert they have some sort of credentials to back them up; Doctors and therapists hold fancy degrees, lawyers have to pass a state bar exam, heck even the guy in the paint department at Home Depot needs to have a certain amount of experience before he can shake up your can.

But what about so-called “sexperts?” Presumably the people who dole out sex advice on television and in magazines have a certain amount of experience in the bedroom. But, don’t we all?

"I wrote a book about sex, was invited on TV and then suddenly I was being introduced as a 'sexpert'," says Tracey Cox, author of Hot Sex: How to do it. "And that's how you become a sexpert! I do find the term difficult, because anyone can call themselves a sexpert and it's not necessarily true."

Cox (you can stop laughing at her ironic last name now) at least has 20 years of writing experience behind her. But many sexperts out there don’t. So, the next time you read an article about improving your sex life that claims a certain spot on the inner elbow will cause an instant orgasm, or that drinking a strawberry milkshake will improve oral sex, check the sources before you go out and try it.
