About Me

I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Sex This Many Times Monthly Lowers Prostate Cancer Risk

According to a science, the number of times that men ejaculate during a month affects their prostate cancer risk.

The more often you ejaculate, the lower your risk of prostate cancer will be, Harvard is reporting and it doesn’t matter if you’re making sweet love to your honey bunch, banging a bridesmaid in a taxi cab, or choking the chicken in your mom’s powder room. Read more

7 Myths About Sex That Won’t Go Away

Do you believe any of these myths about sex – or all of them?

As someone who’s written about sex for more than three decades (yes, that old!), I find it rather depressing that some of the sex myths that were kicking around when I was studying psychology at university are still widely believed today.

Here’s seven, stubborn commonly believed ‘facts’ about sex that have absolutely no basis in reality at all. Read more

Most Teen Boys Think Porn Is Realistic

I already knew this was true, but it’s still bad news for it to be confirmed.

A study of the porn habits of 1,000 preteens and teenagers in the U.K. found that most teens have not only seen porn, but a considerable percentage of teen boys say they want to try to emulate sex acts they see in porn videos. Read more

15 Things Women Want Men to Know About Breasts

You may love breasts, but how much do you really know about them if you don’t have a pair of your own? Hannah Smothers reveals the fifteen things that women want men to know about breasts.

That famous line from a book by a man (Tale of Two Cities) about how “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” or whatever is, in my opinion, actually about having boobs. There are such wonderful benefits to having a pair of playthings affixed to your chest. But then there are the dark moments (PERIODS). Either way, having boobies is like being part of a fun, exclusive club and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Read more

Update: Is Facebook Anti-Lesbian?

FakebookAs I predicted, less than 24 hours after the latest block was removed, Facebook picked another old photo from my secret group, claimed that I had posted on my personal, public page, and banned me for seven days this time. This is after I had gone through every photo posted in the secret group and removed any that were similar to the ones Facebook removed. This confirms to me that the content of the photos was not really the issue. In fact, I think that in the photo they removed this time, the girls were both clothed, although they were kissing.

Also, Facebook is  demanding a government-issued  ID to unlock my account. This is their favorite harassment tactic for purging users.  Since I won’t even give Facebook a phone number, I will definitely not be submitting sensitive documents to strangers of the internet – and hostile strangers at that, it seems. Besides, what’s the point? Even if I did, Facebook will just pick out another photo from my secret group, and use it to ban me again.

I believe that this is the end of my Facebook “experience.” A week from now, when the block expires, and I confirm that Facebook will no longer allow me to access my account, I will removed the Facebook link from the sidebar.

Is Facebook Anti-Lesbian?

Best FriendsI have been on Facebook for eight years, but I suspect my days  there are numbered because Facebook seems to have an anti-lesbian bias. I just received my second ban from posting within a two day span Two days ago, Facebook removed a photo I posted a week or so earlier in my secret Facebook group for bi-curious, bisexual, and lesbian women. It falsely claimed that it had been posted to my personal timeline, and banned me for 24 hours. (The posts in a secret group cannot be seen my anyone, but members.) Less than  24 hours after the block was lifted, Facebook removed another old photo, and again falsely claimed that it had bee posted on my personal timeline. Even though the photo had been posted days earlier, this showed that I was “defying” Facebook, so I have been banned for three more days. (See my update.) Continue reading

Can Women Get “Blue Balls,” Too?

Yes, women can although the mechanism – and probably feeling – is a little different.

No doubt you’ve heard of blue balls, the painful condition that can occur when a man gets aroused but doesn’t have an orgasm. And you’ve probably been thankful on more than one occasion that women can’t get them. Or can we? Read more
