Sex can be fiddly and weird: it can also be highly pleasurable.
Your experience can hinge on a number of factors, and finding confidence to engage in such intimacy can, sometimes feel like a needle-in-a-haystack moment.
Well, you’re about to get the easiest, most straight-forward sex advice ever.
Are you ready? Here’s how you can get better at sex:
This is not a trick, it’s as simple as that.
Sex researcher and investigator at the Sexual Psychophysiology And Affective Neuroscience, Nicole Prause, tells New York Magazine:
The expertise isn’t embedded in the information. It’s embedded in the individual.
A 2012 study of 6,000 university women found that the number of sexual experiences they had, impacted on their orgasm.
Women's enjoyment of sex – and orgasm – increased from when they first had sex with their partner, to sexual encounters they had as time went on.
This implies that, even without long-term commitment, partners tend to enjoy themselves more as they learn about each other sexually.
Prause also advises that if you have any unconventional sexual practises – don’t bring them up the first time. You probably want to ease your partner into the kinky, not drive them straight into it.
So there you have it: Get to know what your partner wants, and roll with it.
