Want more sex? There are gender differences when it comes to intimacy. Men are like microwaves while women are like slow cookers. When you expect your partner to experience pleasure the same way you do, you are setting yourself up for disappointment and frustration. (Speak of levels/types of intimacy, emotional, social, intellectual and physical).
It is important to be able to give and receive pleasure?
Be attentive. Look at your partners body language to know how they like what you are doing.
Individuals who are able to verbally articulate what they find satisfying are more likely to receive it.
Be flexible and open- Creating an environment of openness allows your partner to feel comfortable coming to you with their sexual desires. It is important to be cautious not to shame your partner for what they ask for, otherwise this opens the door for others to meet their needs. Nevertheless respect boundaries should be respected.
Have fun and be creative. Variety is the spice of life. When you are in a committed relationship, if you are not careful intimacy can become monotonous. (i.e position, time location, attire).
