How To Talk About Sex With Your Partner

If you're experiencing issues with your sex life, you may want to have a sex talk with your partner.

Some reasons to have a sex talk

*Lack of sexual satisfaction *Desire to try something new *Sexual dysfunction *Change in libido *Lack of intimacy or need for more affection *Feelings of sexual rejection or always having to initiate sex *Family planning

There are some steps you can take to help make conversations about sex easier for both of you.

Start Slow:  Have a "soft start" to the conversation. Begin with your goal to feel closer and connected with your partner.

Focus on Intimacy:  Remember that affection and intimacy are just as important as the frequency of sex.

Skip the Surprises:  It is important that you are both on the same page, so you should always initiate those conversations first before springing any surprises on your partner.

Express Yourself:  Talk with one another about your expectations, your fears, your desires, and your concerns—and be honest.

Talk Often:  Realize that you may need to have a few conversations and not just one long conversation.

It has been said that "good lovers are made, not born." If you truly want your sexual relationship to be all that it can be, you should take the time to talk with one another.
