Discussing intimate preferences and desires with your partner can be uncomfortable, but it is essential for a healthy and satisfying relationship. Open communication, using “I” language, starting softly, and creating a safe and non-judgmental space are some of the key rules to follow when talking about sex with your partner. It’s important to remember that everyone’s preferences are unique, and being open and understanding can help foster a more fulfilling intimate connection.
One user said, “Catching a hamstring cramp at an inopportune time. A close second is getting a hair stuck on the roof of my mouth and trying to hack it up without ruining the mood.”
Lack Of Foreplay
A second user added, “When guys just stick it in and you haven’t been properly warmed up so to speak. Fellas, you gotta preheat the oven before you can bake the bread if you know what I’m saying!”
Not Up To Par
A third user shared, “The part when you need to tell the other(s) what they’re doing isn’t to your liking. I’m not sure if it’s worse for the receiver or the person doing the work.”
This reader said, “When your partner is turned on by doing something to you, but it doesn’t really turn you on.”
One user stated, “Having to get up to pee whilst snuggling post-coital so you don’t get a U.T.I. It’s a huge inconvenience, especially if the relationship is new and you’re not quite comfortable with that person yet.”
That One Spot
A top-liked comment said, “An ex and I called it the cuddle puddle, but we never actually cuddled in it. That’s the worst, especially if it’s late and you just want to sleep afterward.”
Get Out Of My Head
A reader added, “My brain. Trying to get out of my head. I overthink all of it, always. I’d rather just do foreplay on her. I know I’m good at it. I can turn my brain off and focus on her. Anything to do with me? Overthinking mess.”
This user commented, “People that just lay there and act like everything you’re doing to them is good, but there’s very little interaction.”
A poster said, “When your partner is really bad at dirty talk, and it’s laughable because they clearly have no idea what to say or even how to say it.”
A Bad Dance
One commenter stated, “Our body’s not syncing up, different rhythms and constantly varying the speed at which your thrusting/moving.”
A top-liked comment said, “I absolutely hate when he’s doing something I really like, and I tell him, and he tries to do it faster or harder. I said I liked what you were doing, don’t change it, dummy!
This person added, “When the flesh is weak from overthinking, and your partner thinks it’s something they did. It’s not you. It’s a mental performance thing.”
Not That Pill
A poster commented, “Taking anti-depressants. Nothing kills the s****x drive and the desire to have s****x like a drug that is trying to keep you from feeling sad—quite the contradiction.”
This commenter stated, “Even though I’m in a committed relationship and have one of the most reliable forms of birth control, I cannot keep myself from spiraling over pregnancy anxiety 99% of the time.”
One reader shared, “That awkwardness of the first time you’re with a new partner. Neither one really knows what the other is “into,” so it sometimes stays very basic. It’s only after you’ve been together for at least a little while that you discover each other’s kinks, fetishes, and all the messed-up stuff each one needs because of your crummy childhoods, or whatever….”
Like A Wet Noodle
“A woman here… just laying there after. You can’t move because your legs don’t work, and your man is cleaning up, and you’re just kind of a wet noodle laying in whatever position you finished in.”
Go For It
A commenter added, “I don’t randomly get turned on and in the mood for s****x. I need to be put in the mood. Therefore I rarely initiate, no harm meant by it. But it’s come to my realization how hurtful it can be to be rejected and to be the initiator each time. So I’ve decided I must put in my effort. And you know what, once we get going, it’s always a blast, so I need to learn to just go for it!”
The Clean Up
A top-liked comment said, “The clean up. So awkward just laying there waiting for the guy to get the towel. I wish more people would be proactive and have a towel at the bed!”
This poster said, “When I can tell they aren’t really interested but just going along with it. I’ve done it before, and it’s not fun. This is after doing it a few times and realizing we aren’t compatible. So I’d say finding the answer of compatibility or not, which thankfully is usually in the early stages of dating someone.”
The Whole Experience
Finally, A poster shared, “The s****x part. I just don’t like it as much as I’m supposed to.”
