Am I boring in bed?
People often ask me why their sex lives don't look the way sex and relationships do in the movies or on TV,' says Kristie Overstreet, PhD, a clinical sexologist and sex therapist in Huntington Beach, California. 'The sex and passion we see on screen or online isn't real life. It is choreographed, planned, and acted out to invoke an emotional response from the audience.
There are many men and women that feel there is something wrong with them because their relationship isn't similar to how relationships are portrayed in these media. Unfortunately, this leads individuals to feel bad about themselves and to build unrealistic expectations of their relationships.' Remember: What you see on TV, in movies, and online isn't 'normal'—so don't compare yourself to it.
