“I wouldn’t have touched anything like this when I was younger.”

A few months ago, we gave 12 FOF couples or singles the chance to win one of Sinclair Institute’s outstanding sex education videos. Sinclair has been helping people rev up their sex lives since 1991 and is the leading source of sexual health products and videos in the United States. Its Better Sex Video Series® has sold over four million videos in over 30 countries. Featuring real couples in loving and committed relationships, the videos explain and show us the stuff that turns them–and will turn you–ON!

We asked contest entrants which video they would most like to win. Then, we interviewed the winners–asking them to “bare all” about their sex lives. After they received and watched their videos, we spoke to them again to find out what they thought, and did.

FOF Lucy* and her husband, Richard* (names have been changed to protect their privacy) watched 12 Ways to Boost Your Libido, and here’s what they had to say!

Did you watch it right away?
No, we didn’t. He was out of town again. We waited until we had a time where we could sit down and focus on watching the tape itself.

How did you feel about it?
It was very well done. It was nice to see that there were regular everyday couples, not actors. It was very comfortable, nothing odd or out of the ordinary, nothing embarrassing to make me blush.

Did you watch it all at once?
Yes.

How long was it?
90 minutes

Did you watch it once or more frequently?
We watched it only once. That’s all we had the time for, but we’re hoping to watch it again this weekend, because he’ll be back in town.

Do you think it’s necessary to watch it more than once?
Yes. I’m looking forward to watching it again. This time we’ll watch it piece by piece, rather than watching it like a movie, which is what we did the first time.

Was it helpful? Did it educate you about things you didn’t know?
It educated me about other ways of doing things, other than just having flat-out sex. I loved learning about the G-spot a little bit. I think we’ll focus on that right now. We’re going to pick one thing at a time and work on that.

Did it you find the tape arousing?
Yes, for both of us.

Did you try anything you learned yet?
Yes, we have. We practiced! We learned how to slow down and to take it easy and that you don’t have to rush right into this [sex] or necessarily even have intercourse. Richard also focused on the G-spot during our practice, without me really knowing it, and then I focused on it.

Did it cover oral sex, too?
Yes.

Was there anything in the tape that has potential to change your attitude or your actions?
The potential of anal arousal, although maybe not anal intercourse.

Did it help Richard regain any libido?
I think so. It takes more time these days. And carving out the time is what we’re looking to do.

Do you use sex toys?
Yes, I usually use the egg to stimulate the clitoris. It’s always helped me. Richard will satisfy himself. Now I want to try different types of vibrators. As I’ve gotten older, I need it. I wouldn’t have touched anything like this when I was younger.

Did this entice you to get other Sinclair tapes?
Yes, it did. I’ve been on their site quite a bit lately, looking around, because it’s an interesting site and very well done.
