It can be awkward to try and talk about sex with your romantic partner, but it’s an important thing to do.
Read on to learn all the different reasons that you need to talk about sex with your partner.
Get Back On The Same Page (Sexually) With Your Significant Other
Talking about sex is the only way you can make sure that you and your partner are on the same page. You’ll have to talk about what your relationship status is, and how you want to move forward.
This is important whether you’re married, friends with benefits, or somewhere in between. You also need to know what your expectations are for the relationship.
For example, you may disagree on how often should a wife please her husband, or how often you should be having sexual relations at all.
Get Comfortable In The Bedroom
You need to be able to talk to your partner about what you’re comfortable with, and uncomfortable with, in the bedroom. This is an important part of explicit consent.
Your partner will need to know if there are triggers they should avoid while you’re being intimate, and you’ll need to know that information about your partner.
It’s also best to talk about what you actually do like, so you both can feel good when you’re having sex and you’ll have the most positive experience possible. If there are certain things that you prefer, tell your partner! They’ll appreciate it in the long run.
Work Through Your Insecurities
Sometimes, you may be feeling insecure in the bedroom. This could be for sexual reasons, because of changes in your body, or many other reasons.
That’s a reason you should discuss sex with your partner, so that they’re aware when you may be feeling uncomfortable.
Experiment (But Discuss It First!)
If you want to try new things in the bedroom, you definitely need to talk to your partner about your expectation and things that you’re excited about potentially trying out. You can’t just throw things on your partner in the heat of the moment, after all.
And, there’s always a chance that your partner will also be interested in the things you may be interested in trying. Some things you may be interested in trying out in the bedroom include:
- Food play
- Mutual masturbation
- Costume play and sexual roleplay
- Strap-ons and other toys
- Watching pornography
- Edging and psychological forms of sexual play
- Having sex with multiple partners at one time
Just make sure you’re completely honest with your partner, so that you can remain on the same page.
