VO5 Summer of Love: How to Talk to Your Partner About Sex
Hello everyone! It’s that time again for a new theme in our Summer of Love Series with VO5 - and this week’s theme is Sex, Consent and Jealousy. In keeping with this theme I thought it would be a great idea to talk about how to talk to your partner about sex. It’s such an important part of a relationship and you deserve to feel comfortable having such conversations. It really doesn’t have to feel awkward or embarrassing ♡
When we mention talking about sex with your partner, this can include anything from talking about what you like in bed through to your thoughts and concerns about consent and contraception. Every single one of us have rights to talk about these to our partner, but often people can be left worrying that it’s embarrassing or nerve-wracking, they may feel bad when giving feedback, or may feel concerned about killing the mood when communicating during sex. Equally as importantly, it may be that you don’t want to have sex anymore - and that too is a conversation that you have every right to have. These worries are normal but it absolutely doesn’t have to be this way. There is some really useful advice and solutions that you can read about here in The Mix’s article about how to talk to your partner about sex. I would love to hear what you think.
So now it’s over to you. I would love to hear your thoughts and advice on how to talk to your partner about sex - and how you perhaps overcame some of these worries that have been discussed in the article. ♡
