Use Questions To Improve Your Sexual Life

Use Questions To Improve Your Sexual Life
Receive better feedback after a sexual experience with the use of open and closed ended questions.

If you have limited success with open-ended questions, don’t give up. This is where you move onto closed-ended questions such as:

  • Did you notice when I did…..?” (Yes or No)
  • “Did you like it when I did it?” (If your partner does not remember, you could imitate what you did previously.)
  • “Was your orgasm the same, less or more intense than the last time?” (There is only one answer.)

This is where you can encourage further dialogue by reverting to a few open-ended questions:

  • “That’s interesting. Could you tell me more?”
  • “Really? Why (gently) do you think that is so?”

If your partner asks you why you have recently begun asking so many questions after sex, you could reply:

“I really want to learn more about you, what works and what would make it better… and I think one of the ways to do so is talking about it. I really want to know because I care about you.”

Or:

“I want us to be able to talk about sex and our sexual experiences. This is how one way we can learn more about each other. Is it okay?”

This is not an interrogation. There is no point pushing it if your partner is clearly uncomfortable talking about sex. Try again the next time, and the next. What you want to do is begin to open more dialogue about sex, and stopping that dialogue when your partner wishes to do so is a part of it.

You will notice that with each attempt to discuss your sexual experiences, it will become easier. It takes time and it is well worth it to go slow.

I've been through quite an ordeal the last three months—since May 12th, to be exact.

By

On June 17, I attended a workshop with 20 other people where we had several speakers that day.

These are the 12 ... Read more
