It can be difficult to talk about sex and boundaries with your partner.
Whether you're in a new relationship or you've been together for years, it's important to communicate openly and honestly about your needs and desires. Here are a few tips to help you get the conversation started.
1. Talk about what you like and don't like.
This is an important part of any sexual relationship. You should feel comfortable telling your partner what turns you on and what doesn't. If you're not sure where to start, try sharing a sexual fantasy or two. Fantasizing about something together can be a fun way to get the conversation started.
2. Be honest about your boundaries.
It's important to know your own boundaries before you can communicate them to your partner. What are you comfortable with sexually? What are you not comfortable with? It's OK to change your mind about things, too. Just be sure to communicate those changes to your partner.
3. Ask questions.
If you're unsure about something, ask! There's no shame in being curious or wanting to learn more about something. Your partner should be open to answering any questions you have. If they're not, that's a red flag.
4. Use "I" statements.
When communicating with your partner, use "I" statements rather than "you" statements. For example, instead of saying "You never make an effort to please me," try "I feel like I'm not being heard when I tell you what I need." This will help avoid any accusations or defensiveness from your partner.
5. Be respectful.
Remember that your partner is an autonomous human being with their own needs and desires. Just as you want them to respect your wishes, be sure to respect theirs as well. If either of you feels uncomfortable or disrespected at any point, stop what you're doing and talk about it immediately.
Talking about sex and boundaries can be daunting, but it's so important in any sexual relationship. By communicating openly and honestly with your partner, you can ensure that everyone is on the same page and that everyone is comfortable and happy with the situation. Use these tips to help get the conversation started, and always remember to respect each other's wishes and boundaries. Until Next Time!...XOXO 💖🤗
