Sure, communication is the key to any successful relationship, but sometimes you may feel a bit hesitant to bring up intimate subjects. It’s one thing to joke around with your SO about sex stuff, but really addressing your likes and dislikes may leave you a bit tongue-tied. But don't worry — knowing how to instruct your partner during sex is a skill that even the most shy person can master.
It’s helpful to remember that no one can read your mind. If you never tell your SO exactly how you like things done, then your partner will have no way of guessing. What’s more, as long as your partner is loving and desirous of what’s best for your relationship, your significant other wants to know how exactly how to make you happy. Direct communication can take the guesswork out of the equation and help you both master the secrets of one another’s desires.
It’s also crucial to keep in mind one simple fact: communication does not imply criticism. Sure, your partner probably wants to be the best lover you’ve ever had right out of the gate, but no one’s sexual desires can be guessed. By giving some instructions, you can help your sex life get even better than it already is. Lastly, by keeping an open mind and a sense of humor about the situation, you and your partner can communicate your way into mind-blowing sex.
So if you're ready to make the most of your sexual escapades, here are a few tips for instructing your partner.
