You might have already proven this through your own, ahem, independent research, but a new study from Cleveland State University in Ohio has found that the more comfortable you are talking about sex (in bed or out of it), the more you’ll enjoy the act itself.
The reverse is true too: If you’re skittish about bringing up the subject of sex with your partner, the less you’ll like actually having it. Let’s try to turn the odds of having great sex in our favor this weekend, shall we?
If chatting freely about sex isn’t your (or your partner’s) style, you can do little things to communicate rather than having a full-blown, sit-down discussion, LiveScience reports:
“[I]t might be easier to moan or to move in a certain way to communicate that I’m enjoying the sexual encounter than to say, ‘Hey, this feels really good, I like that,’” [study researcher Elizabeth] Babin said. “That might seem too direct for some people.”
So, this weekend, move your lips while you move your hips, so to speak: moan, purr, sigh, say, “Keep doing that,” or graduate to some seriously dirty talk — whatever you feel comfortable with. Even if it feels a little awkward at first, it could make your sexual pleasure skyrocket.
We’re willing to risk a little embarrassment to get that plum reward.
