Dear Dr. Hedda Peter and I have been married for 11 years. I think we still love each other . One of the first attractions we had for each other was that neither of us wanted children. We still feel the same way. That’s not the problem. The prorblem is sex. The first couple of years was great. We made love about 3-5 times a week. It was fun and we both enjoyed it. But, it’s been slowing up over the years and the number has decreased. It’s down to about once a month and then only if I push about it. Our lovemaking,...

Dear Dr. Hedda:   I’m starting to doubt myself.  My third marriage just ended.  He left me for another woman.  So did my second husband.  I always thought I was a good. loving, supportive wife.  I cook sometimes, I clean up most of the time.  I am healthy, thin, well educated and quite attractive. I’ve always been able to support myself comfortably.  I have never been a financial burden on any of my husbands. OMG did I just say that.  It sounds like the number of my ex husbands is legion.   What I am doing wrong ? ...

Dear Dr Hedda:   I’m in my late twenties and work at home.  I do well and enjoy my work.   But you don’t meet any men in your at-home office.  I’m lonely. So I decided to try some dating services.  More expensive than I thought but what choice did I have.   I signed up at two different services.  Over that past year I have had about 20 dates. ...

Dr. Hedda on Justin Bieber and His Recent Outlandish Behavior Is he just a kid who happens to be a Superstar? Is he an emotionally troubled kid who happens to be a Superstar? Is he just a immature, sheltered from the real world, 19 year old who is a Superstar? The answer is – Yes he is all of the above. After reading articles, interviews and stories about Justin Bieber and watching several of his performance and interview videos I can clearly state that he behaves like a kid because he is a kid. I question his world view, having...

Dear Dr. Hedda   This is a family problem that the family doesn’t know about.  Well, just two of us know.  About 3 years ago my father in law made a pass at me.  More than a pass actually.   We where sitting in the backyard watching the kids play in the pool when he asked me to help him carry out some snacks and drinks for us and the children.  When we were alone in the kitchen he came...

Dear Dr. Hedda   Don’t laugh at me.  This is a serious problem.  My boyfriend insists that our 2 dogs (German Shepard and toy poodle) sleep in bed with us.  He says it makes him feel safe knowing that they can hear sounds that he couldn’t during the night and that they work as our burglar alarm.  Sounds good huh.  Well not so much.   He wants them on the bed all the time, even...

Dear Dr. Hedda   I’m sure you have one version or another of my story.  So here goes.  Tom and I have been married for 23 years.  It’s a pretty good marriage, we love each other and still have fun doing things together.  Except one – sex.  Yes I said it. We don’t seem to like the same things.  Every time we have sex we are both a little disappointed.  So about 15 years...

    Dear Dr. Hedda   All my friends tell me how lucky I am to be in a long term marriage (19 years) that appears to be happy and stable.   They don’t know what goes behind closed doors.  Larry has been mean to me since day one.  Never in public, never in front of friends and family.  Just when we are home alone.    We never had any children.  That...

    Dear Dr. Hedda:   What’s the normal amount of times a week couple should have sex ?   My boyfriend and I disagree.   Confused     Dear Confused:   There is no normal amount of times anymore.  We are flooded with advertising for sex enhancing drugs, provocative tv advertisements  and sexually explicit movies.   Sex is more blatant in our society...

  Dear Dr. Hedda:   Pete and I have been married for 11 years.  We have one son – Sean who’s now 9.  I love Pete and my son very much.  I think we have made a good life together.  The one problem we have had has been sex.  Oh not how to do it, we are very compatible about that, it’s the frequency.  Pete prefers to have sex once or twice a...
