Touching the subject of sex with your partner could be slightly risky if you guys are just getting into a relationship. Before you start your journey to the bedroom, it is important to discuss matters at ease so that both partners are on the same page. Get the awkwardness out in the beginning so that it's a smooth sailing road ahead.
But to get the awkwardness out, you must talk through things first. There are a few mistakes people do while speaking to their partners about sex.
It is very important to be a non-judgemental partner if your better half decides to tell you about their sex history.
They've obviously had different sexual experiences than you've had and it doesn't matter because you weren't there in their life at that point of time. Be understanding to what they have to say because honesty is always appreciated in a relationship.
This is a phrase which is used when someone reacts in an absurd way to another person's consented and safe sexual fetishes.
If your partner expresses interest in some sex positions or some sex toys that you're not into, you shouldn't participate in it but that doesn't imply that you should express disgust towards it.
Although being honest and transparent in a relationship is always good, but giving out too many details may make your partner uncomfortable and insecure which is not good.
So if you're talking about your ex, make sure you give don't go into a lot of details. Let the past remain in the past.
Everyone has their own sexual fetish. Whether it could involve some sex toys or involve some other stuff like whipped cream or liquid chocolate, there's nothing to feel embarrassed about.
It is natural to have a sexual fetish and there's a chance your partner will also have a kinky mind just like you.
It is completely fine to please your partner in bed, but you don't always have to be a giving partner.
Even in bed, two partners should always have a give and take relationship, it is never one sided. So don't ignore your desires just to please your partner.
In today's youth, sexual health is indeed a serious topic. With half of all the STD infections affecting 15-24-year-olds, it becomes very important to discuss these things with your new partner.
Talk about the general precautions to be taken during sex and if they've suffered from any STD previously.
Sexual inexperience is a real thing. Your partner could be a virgin or may not have tried something that you do normally, but that don't mean you are allowed to ridicule them regarding that.
You should rather celebrate that your partner feels comfortable enough to talk about it with you and probably will want to try it out in the future.
