Ask Your #WomanCrushWednesday With Dr. Jess

Our #WCW this week is Dr. Jessica O’Reilly, who you may know as the lady behind Sex With Dr. Jess! Jess is a sex and relationship expert with a PhD background in sex ed. She’s the author of three best-selling books, the host of PlayboyTV’s top series Swing and an international speaker who entertains sold-out audiences worldwide from Istanbul and Zurich to Albuquerque and Cancun. And now, she’s here sharing her infinite sex and romance with us!  So sit back, relax and prepare to learn from our #womancrushwednesday.
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
Their voice. I’ve always been attracted to the sound of men’s and women’s voices and I think you can tell a lot about a person from their pitch, tone and language.
Who would you want to have make the first move?
I’d definitely rather that my date make the first move. I feel so much performance pressure as a sexologist that I’d rather sit back and enjoy the ride.
What is your ideal first date?
It has been a long time since I’ve been on a first date, but my ideal date would be over lunch. I love food (and wine) and believe that the most meaningful conversations often happen over a meal. I also like the idea of the dating during the daylight hours without the expectation for a first date to continue all night long.
What’s your instant deal breaker?
Bad manners are a deal breaker. If you’re not polite to the server, we’re not a good fit.
Who do you go to for dating advice?
I’m usually the one doling out advice, but if I were dating, I’d go to my single sexologist friend, Megan Stubbs. She’s up to speed with modern dating and the associated bells, whistles and apps.
Make sure to catch Dr. Jess on Global TV’s The Morning Show every Tuesday at 8am or check out her website at
