I’ve been seeing my boyfriend for a year and we still only have sex at his place because he insists on freshly laundered, ironed sheets on a perfectly-made bed. We both have to shower first. Why can’t he cope with messy spontaneity and my untidy bedroom?

Almost half of Irish men who have sex with a non-steady male partner do not always wear a condom - and more than one in four admitted having unprotected sex in the previous 12 months.

Please explain to me how a six-inch piece of vibrating plastic can make my partner of 15 years orgasm when no matter what I do I have never been able to. We are both in our 60s and very close, but this situation makes me feel uneasy.

"I've just started dating a great guy. However, during sex he stares at me, unblinking, really intensely. It's so off-putting. I just shut my eyes, but whenever I open them he's still staring. Do I just have to get used to it? Or avoid missionary position?"

My boyfriend likes to watch porn before (and sometimes during) sex. He’s so considerate and lovely in all other ways that I find it puzzling. I definitely don’t like it. I’d rather he was focusing on the intimate moment between the two of us than the acrobatics on screen.

My husband wants me to be a bit more vocal during sex. I’ve tried a couple of times but this is simply not my style. While I want my lovely husband to be happy, groaning and moaning during sex just don’t come naturally to me.

My new boyfriend is lovely, but painfully polite — and his excessive consideration even extends to the bedroom. He says thank you after sex. I know he means well, but I find it terribly deflating, not to mention a huge turn-off.

"My partner is a fitness fanatic and she only ever wants to have sex after a workout. It’s great when our endorphins are racing and we’re a bit sweaty, but sometimes I would like it to be after a romantic dinner, like a normal couple. Why doesn’t she fancy me at any other time?”

Non monogamy is more common that you think, writes. Shows like Wanderlust portray polyamory as a hedonistic trip of infinite highs. Why settle for monogamy, the thinking goes, when there are so many delectables yet to taste?

My husband is continually surprised that I don’t feel like having sex very often, despite the fact that he does nothing to turn me on. If we try to talk about it, we end up in a blame game. How can I make it really clear that he needs to make an effort to have a good sex life?

My husband and I are going through a stressful patch in our lives, and our sex life has suffered. We know it’s important to be physically close and we miss the intimacy. I think I am more affected by it than him. What can we do?
