How to Bring Up Sexual Concerns With Your Partner

As you might know, communication is key in all relationships. And that goes for what is happening underneath the covers as well. We cannot expect each other to be mind readers when it comes to what we enjoy and don’t enjoy in bed. Follow these tips to effectively communicating your needs and sexual concerns with your partner:

*Discuss what you do like

This might sound counterintuitive, but discussing what you really enjoy in bed will put the focus on those moves, angles or actions. You could also mention that you prefer one thing over the other. That way, you’re not damaging your partner’s self-esteem.

*Ask The Right Questions

A great way to bring up possible concerns is by asking your partner questions. Ask them what they like and don’t like. This is a way to prevent your partner from feeling ambushed, and you might learn what you can improve on as well.

*Go to Them First

It’s natural to reach out to a best friend when you’re having concerns with your partner. Keep in mind that it’s mostly a very private topic, and not all partners would appreciate what ‘Sally and her husband did to fix the problem’. This way your partner might feel like you’ve been discussing your concerns with the entire world instead of him/her.

These are just three easy ways to address sexual concerns within your relationship. Let us know how you’ve approached this in the past by leaving a comment:
