LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Should You Blab About Your Sex Life Like Kendra Wilkinson, Katy Perry & Rihanna Do?

Is revealing all about your dirty deeds just plain wrong, or is it OK to openly discuss your sexual shenanigans?

Some people like to keep things private and some like to tell you every single sordid little detail of their sex lives, and Rihanna, Katy Perry and Kendra Wilkinson happen to fall in the latter category. These ladies aren’t shy about letting the world know just how much they like getting freaky between the sheets — but is this necessarily a bad thing?

Reality star Kendra has openly admitted that she and hubby Hank Baskett prefer Skype to phone sex to keep things fresh, while art apparently imitates life for Rihanna, who sounds like she’s as into S&M as she loves singing about it.  “Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun,” she told Rolling Stone. “You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your sh*t. That’s fun to me…I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I’d rather have him use his hands.” Katy was a bit more sedate than her BFF, saying of new husband Russell Brand, “Can you imagine the kind of responsibility I have with his reputation? I’m bedridden most of the week.”

Um…can you say TMI? It sure is on all accounts, but being queen of the sexual overshare isn’t completely terrible…it just depends on who you’re telling.

As a rule of thumb, girls talk. We’re every bit as bad as boys, though our conversation does tend to eventually run more towards love, while guys mostly hate talking about feelings more significant than the sorrow they felt when their favorite team lost during Monday Night Football. That said, women do reveal things to one another, and that’s completely OK. Consider your sexual overshares to be battle stories!

However, you’ve got to  be careful who else you’re telling these tales to. For example, you don’t want to be posting your sexscapades all over the Internet, lest a potential (or current) employer finds them. For that matter, don’t discuss your sex life at work! Also be careful when you’re getting into a new relationship: you don’t want to come across as too promiscuous to the new man in your life. When you’ve been seeing him for awhile, you’ll know him well enough to make that call as to what he’s into.

So YES, dirty talk is OK…but there’s a time and a place. Lucky for you potty mouths that place is not always just in the bedroom!
