When your body doesn’t behave as you’d like, including: How can I get my erection to last longer?

We all have bodies.  We all have expectations on what we’d like from our bodies.  And we all have to deal with the fact our bodies don’t always do what we’d like.
Vaginas that aren’t wet enough, or wide enough…  Cocks that don’t get hard, or that come too soon…  Are they trying to tell us something?  Are there specific things that we can do, or psychological things, to assist?  Are there work-arounds?

What’s the difference between a sex-worker, a sex-therapist, a sex-surrogate, and a sex-coach?

What’s the difference between a sex-worker, a sex-therapist, a sex-surrogate, and a sex-coach?
…They all involve sex and money, right, but where’s the line between one thing and the next?  How do you know which one you need?  Can you have all of those services in one professional, or even one session?  And why don’t sex-workers like being called prostitutes?
