If you’re looking to make a big splash in the bedroom this Valentine’s Day, Jackie Walters, PhD, has a few tips to consider before diving headfirst into romance.
“I describe the man as the King P,” the Married to Medicine star says. “We have the Queen V. We have the King P and there are things about the King P that all women need to know before the two connect,” she adds.
An OB-GYN for over 20 years, Walters recently published The Queen V: Everything You Need to Know About Sex, Intimacy, and Down There Health Care — a book that breaks down how to plan a “trip to his nether-regions” and which must-see sights to take in once you arrive.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, Yahoo Lifestyle talks to Walters about what to know before meeting the King P.
Check under the hood
“It is important to know whether your male has been circumcised or not, because men who have not been circumcised still have that skin on the glans,” Walters explains. An uncircumcised man must pull back the foreskin to clean properly; otherwise, bacteria, cells, and oil can build up and cause odor and inflammation.
“A lot of things can hide behind that covering, so you really want to know that there’s not a herpetic lesion or genital wart or anything that you may miss,” she adds.
Growers vs. showers
“The penis may look small when it’s not stimulated and erect, but it grows,” assures Walters. “You can certainly get creative if it’s not as endowed as you want it to be. There are certain positions and things you can do to still enjoy your partner if it’s not the biggest king you’ve ever seen.” When encountering a King P with less length, she suggests having sex doggie style with a deep curve in your back or reverse cowgirl for maximum penetration.
If there’s a concern over too much length, she recommends cowgirl or facing each other on your sides, both of which put the woman in control.
Check the paperwork
While Walters recommends doing a thorough investigation of the King P using sight, touch, and smell before having sex, the one sense she leaves out is taste. “Do not put your mouth on it until you have all of the STIs back,” Walters warns, “Touch but don’t taste.”
Gonorrhea, syphilis, HPV and other STIs can be transmitted orally.
Franks vs. beans
When planning a trip to his nether regions, it helps to have a map of where you want to go.
“The scrotum is different from the testicle. The scrotum is the sac that holds the testicles,” Dr. Walters breaks it down. The glans is the head of the penis while the shaft is the rest of the length, and the frenulum is where the foreskin meets the underside of the penis.
If you see something, say something. “Know your man’s anatomy, know if it doesn’t look right or smell right, ask questions,” she urges.
It has a brain!
“The penis has a brain too. Now we sometimes think it’s located there,” Walters laughs. “But men have feelings just like women, so be careful what we say.” A little praise can go a long way.
This Valentine’s Day, mind these five rules and the King P and the Queen V can have their own happy, healthy ever after.
