Dear Dr. Charley:
I’m dating a new guy and we were recently intimate for the first time. It was amazing; but he lasted forever. I guess normally this is a good thing, but it was like hours on end. This is what some women dream of, but, honestly, after a while, it just started to hurt. I enjoyed it, but I’m looking for ways to reduce the friction next time we sleep together. I also want to let him know that I don’t need him to go for hours in order to feel satisfied. Do you have any pointers?

I love being a woman and celebrating sisterhood, but sometimes I want to shake some of my fellow hermanas. There is just way too much competition amongst women. We sharpen our claws when a cutie passes by and let us not forget how quickly some women turn on each other when success comes a knocking. Can we just put down the haterade?

I’ve always been haunted by my ex-boyfriends. Even if they did me dirty or just weren't that into me; they always come back into my life somehow.
The latest ex to pop back into my life was my first serious boyfriend. First BF and I were together for seven months in 2003. It ended because we were in different places. He was reveling in politics while I was left wondering if our passions and interests aligned. We parted ways, but not before taking a "break," having lots of break-up sex, yelling and crying buckets of tears (unfortunately me, not him).

Dear Dr. Charley:
I’m 35 and have been with my man for six years. We have been living together for two and I’m more than ready for him to put a ring on it . . . but my guy isn’t. His parents went through a rough divorce around the time that we got together and he keeps telling me he isn’t sure if he believes in the institution of marriage anymore.

The day before Valentine's Day I woke up later than usual. My cell phone usually beeps as frequently as an ER doctor's and almost always wakes me up—yet there it was, totally lifeless. As soon as I rose out of my slumber, I picked it up from my bedside bureau and stared at the screen. Then I saw those three, tragic letters: GSM. My cell phone carrier grew tired of giving me service without payment and had cut me off!

I consider myself a pretty open-minded person, but I can’t force myself to like a guy. I’ve never been able to flip my hair at the sight of just any man; I’m just not that kind of flirt! So when Mr. Gringo and I went on our first date I felt like an anxiety attack coming on.
I wrestled myself out of bed and met him at Lilies. I walked in and saw him standing there—charcoal coat, long scarf and Stella in hand. He looked older than I remembered and not so cute, but I stuck around and I strolled over to him with a smile.

Doctor Charley Ferrer didn't set out to become the only Latina sex and relationship doctor in the United States. In fact, her love of psychology came about almost by accident. Ferrer went back to school to finish her degree in order to demand more money at her job and had to take some extra credits, so she signed up for a Psychology class. One thing led to another and now Dr. Charley is a doctor of human sexuality, holds a Masters degree in counseling psychology and certification as a clinical sexologist under her belt.
