No sex or marriage question is too embarrassing because it’s time to ask EmpowHer’s sexuality expert Dr. Marty Klein, anything.

Okay, here is an interesting question. “Dear Dr. Klein, my husband wants me to dress really sexy, actually kind of trashy, when we go out with his friends, but you know, I am just not comfortable with that. What should I do? He really is pushy about it.”

Dr. Marty Klein:
Well, you certainly should not wear something that you feel is trashy if you don’t want to wear something that you feel is trashy. I guess you could tell your husband how pleased you are that he thinks you are so attractive and you can enjoy the fact that your husband wants to show you off in front of his friends.

So, now you need to figure out, with your husband, what are your limits? You need to talk to him not so much about what you don’t want to do; talk to him about what you are willing to do. Are you willing to wear something with low cleavage? Are you willing to wear, you know, higher heels than you might normally do, as long as you are not walking a lot, right?
