New Year's Resolutions for Love and Lust

Mistress Maeve: Your guide to love and lust...

Dear Readers,

Read any magazines or blogs this week and you’re likely to find an array of top-10 lists — from the best books and movies to the biggest news stories of 2012. As you’re finishing holiday leftovers and stocking up on champagne to ring in the new year, I encourage you to make some lists of your own. What were your top orgasms from the past 12 months? Top dates, romantic moments, kisses and sexual positions?

As you reflect on the year, be grateful for the love and lust you’ve experienced — and don’t forget to include pleasure in your 2013 resolutions. I assure you, a resolution to have more sex will be easier (and more fun) to keep than going to the gym.

If you’re not sure what kind of sex resolutions to make, here are a few suggestions:

  • Watch “you” porn. So many people let physical insecurities get in the way of fantastic sex. Whether you’re self-conscious about your weight, age or penis size, the truth is, lots of people are attracted to you. To prove it, search for your body type on an amateur porn website such as or and marvel at the long list of results. I challenge you not only to watch this porn but get off on it. You are hot and you deserve to see people just like you giving and receiving pleasure.
  • Make out more. This isn’t the first time you’ve heard me give this advice (and it won’t be the last). Couples always ask me how to keep things exciting. I recommend going back to high school, when making out and dry humping were the ingredients for a perfect Saturday night. Sex can become routine — to make it exciting again, go back to the beginning and start with a kiss.
  • Masturbate more. The most important sexual relationship you have is with yourself. To know thyself is to be able to share more fully with your partners. So get busy solo!

And, don’t forget — if your love life gives you lemons in 2013, send your questions to me at We’ll make some lemonade.

Happy New Year,
