  • Excellent video content! Sorry for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you thought about Millawdon Varied Nights Trick (google it)?

Ive heard some awesome things about it and my friend after many years got amazing success with it.

  • As a 65 year old woman and a registered nurse I feel confident that I know a lot more about this topic than my physician. He should ask me questions. I could teach him a lot.

  • Men Love a women who is aggressive and takes the lead!!!! and if you are a very good leader trust me he will follow!!!! no one wants quiet sex ok!!!! call his name,tell him how good he is, tell him you like it its good baby etc u get my point…every man want his wife in the kitchen and a freak in the bed room…many men cheat because soo many women are not open minded when it comes to sex with their husbands,but remember what u wont do another women will

  • Well when i was a kid in high school i worked Sat. and Sun. at a cattle feed lot.
    Guess this old cowboy took a liking to me. On day he said boy let me tell ya something. When you get sixty,sixtyfive and get a chance to die.
    TAKE IT!
    I thought wth? Im well past the old cowboys age now and 72 or so years later. He hit the nail square on the head!
    No head might as well be dead!

  • Has anyone used the Erectodom Secrets to solve your erectile dysfunction problem? Simply just do a google search. On there you will find a great tips about how exactly you can last longer in bed. Why don’t you give it a chance? maybe it can work for you too.

  • So is it really such a common thing for men to not do anything around the house? I do about 90% of the housework all by myself while my wife plays with her phone and then always tells me that she’s too tired to have “hurry up and get it overwith” sex more than once a month.

    But it’s all my fault that our relationship sucks…

  • Excellent talk. I’m almost 60 and still extremely active as I’ve always been. Kudos to you, Dr. Kukkonen and thanks for great presentation.

  • English is not my first language,.. she speaks such a clear and well pronounced english, it is just a pleasure to listen to her. is she canadian?

  • OMG! Who is this lady? She is absolutely brilliant! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a women who “gets it” better than this lady when talking about how men view sex in a marriage.

  • OMG. You are a genius. You are an angel. Every woman who is getting married or going through a rough spot in her marriage needs to watch your video.

    Men need sex. If we are in a relationship without sex and without affection, we are going to become very unhappy. We will try to resolve the situation and if we are unable to resolve the situation we will end up either getting a divorce, opening the relationship up or in some cases men will cheat.

    We have our needs. Just like women have deep needs, sex is a deep need for men.

  • What if she goes thru menapause and that’s it? I’m done? I’m still alive and well and want to still be active!! What about those stats?

  • How disappointing that this topic is not being presented by a 75 year old rather than someone who is getting paid for the research. This seems like a conflict of interest just like we see with drug companies.

  • Great video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you heard about Qanucas Meyyatt Smasher (do a search on google)? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for skyrocketing your libido without the hard work. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my buddy at very last got amazing results with it.
