Becoming sexually active with someone is a very intimate experience, and it can be a delicate process to navigate. Some people are more vocal about what they want than others, but to ensure everyone seems comfortable, there are a number of questions your significant other should be asking you in the bedroom. Everyone has different needs and preferences, but it can't hurt to have frank discussions about what to expect when you become involved intimately with another person.
"If a couple doesn't tell each other what their sexual needs and fantasies are, odds are they won't be met," says Steve McGough, DHS, associate professor of Clinical Sexology at the IASHS, over email. "Over time this can lead to many challenges in the relationship and a loss of interest in intimacy. "In many situations (but not always) women aren't sexually satisfied with the experience and over time lose interest in sex, particularly when life starts getting more busy and stressful."
Having open discussions can not only increase your chances of pleasure, but it can help prevent them from trying anything that you don't want to do. Even if you're in a committed relationship, here are seven questions your significant other should be asking you in the bedroom.
