How to Talk About What You Want in Bed
Why is talking about sex so hard? Our resident sexologist Dr. Gaby makes it easy.
It may be easy to talk about what you need in bed when the relationship is going well, but when you and your partner are going through difficult times, communication can shut down - to avoid hurt, conflict or the sensitivity of what is a very touchy, personal subject. Whilst these are natural reactions, there are a few effective ways you can start the conversation with your partner.
Know your partner's communication style
Whether you or your partner fit those "stereotypes" or not, both men and women have the ability to have both communication styles in them. Communication style is personal, based on our personal experiences, personality and the choices we make. Be aware of yours, the strengths and weaknesses of how you communicate, and learn your partner's communication style too: don't assume just because you are a couple with much in common that you communicate in the same way! You probably don't!
