Why Do I Feel Resentful Towards My Stepson?
Hi Dr. Gray,
I want to first thank you for the amazing advice you've given me throughout your books.I recently married a man that I had dated for 5 years before. He has a son from a previous relationship. His son is 7 now and lives with us full time.

How to support your partner when they have a bad day (It's not what you think!)
When something upsets my boyfriend or when anything upsets me, we feel responsible for each other. For example, if he gets upset about some incident, I feel guilty like it is somehow my fault when in fact I had nothing to do with it! It’s the same with him, if he sees me upset, he feels down. What do we do in this case? Is this normal?
I think it is totally normal! It’s natural for human beings, no matter what their gender, to suf...
12 saucy (and realistic) ways to spice up your sex life!
My fiancé and I are getting married soon, and I want to keep the passion in the bedroom alive. Can you give me some tips on how to do this as lately I feel like my libido has dropped and I feel like I'm not giving him enough intimacy?
Don’t feel bad. Lots of women have a hard time keeping up with their sweeties. Men usually have higher libidos than women because they have more testosterone. Testosterone is the "let's make sex...
How to share insecurities with your partner.
I asked my boyfriend (of two months) if his ex ever calls and asks him to reconcile. I admitted that it may have been somewhat dumb. He got upset. He said I asked him that already and it seems like I don’t trust him. He also said that if she does he will tell me. Since then he’s been quite distant. I am trying to be patient but if he wants this relationship, he should just accept my apology, forgive me and move on. It’s been two days now and it hurts to be thi...
Natural Solutions That Promote Prostate Health
The prostate is a walnut-shaped gland that wraps around the urethra. It’s part of a man’s reproductive system. One of its main jobs is to add fluid to sperm.
About 200,000 American men will discover they have prostate cancer this year.

Almost 40,000 American men will die from prostate cancer this year.
His love of porn is coming between us.
I’m so confused. I’m 48 years old and have been with my boyfriend for 5 years. Some of his female friends send him racy emails and some with nudity. He doesn't tell them to stop. The fact that naked women visuals excite him turns me off. I’m certainly not a prude, I’m very sexual but that is reserved for the one I love. If he wants to make love to me I’ll be wondering if he’s thinking about me or someone else. I’m feeling old and th...

Can Women Be Successful Leaders?
I am attending a graduate school for film right now. My goal is to start my own film production company. A HUGE issue that I've been facing while producing and directing film projects is that I often try to be agressive like a man, but wind up coming across as a bitch - which I hate.
I listened to your interview with George Noory on Coast to Coast, and you had said a woman's hormones can get out of balance if she builds stress and does not relieve the stress properly. ...

Are you too clingy?
I think I might be one of those “clingy” guys and I definitely don’t want to turn anyone off.

I do get upset when we are both in town and I don’t get to see her except maybe once a week. I have been waiting for her to ask to see me, is that the wrong thing to do?...
My Husband Cheated On Me. Will I Feel Better If I Cheat On Him?
Hi John -
My husband of eight years was unfaithful and I feel that cheating on him will make me feel better. How would this affect the relationship? Thank you in advance.
I thank God for your work,
Revenge is never a good choice when you have been hurt by someone. Two wrongs don't make one right. Likewise, an eye for an eye and you both lose your sight.
Revenge, or getting even, is a primitive form of communication. You really should ele...

The WRONG way to spice up a relationship
I want to have an affair with my boss who lives in another country. We immediately connected and have been emailing steamy messages back and forth but have never met up. He is coming into town in a few weeks and even after months of his hot emails, telling me all he wanted was to be with me, he wasn't the one to tell me of his trip. I don't know what to think, what to say, or what to do? Other than the fear of the consequences of a romance gone wrong in the workplace, what...
Your Guide to Relationships Without Labels

How Chlorine In Your Drinking Water Can Make You Sick
Does our drinking water cause heart disease? Does our drinking water cause low thyroid function? Does our drinking water cause cancer? It surely encourages it.
Let's look at history. People first started chlorinating water in England around 1850 to stop the spread of diseases. Around 1900, the United States began to chlorinate its water with lime, but switched to chlorine gas by 1950.
Chlorine is effective at reducing the spread of many nasty illnesses and diseases, but it also inc...
