Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: How much should I tell my new partner about my sex life with my exes?

Answer from Dr. Locker

While it might seem romantic to think you should share everything about your past with your current amour, this may be one situation where the less you say, the better. Why? Because upon hearing the details of what you did in bed with a former flame-as well as where and how often-your present partner may start indulging in some (potentially) painful comparisons. If your new love asks about your in-bed past, avoid puncturing his or her self-confidence by saying something like, "Things were OK/fine in bed, but I'd rather be talking about you and me." You should both focus on the present, and enjoy your new love.
