"OMG. OMG. Please don't let him see my kangaroo pouch. The lights. The lights. We need to dim the lights. He can't see my flabby thighs or the cellulite on the back of my ass."
You retreat. The fire inside you dims. The pleasurable sensations dull all because you can't let go of those damn body hang-ups. Can you relate? Have you been in this situation? Do you let your body hang-ups affect your intimate moments? Are you one of those women who look into the mirror and hate what she sees? Are you constantly criticizing your appearance, your shape or size? Do All Women Have Body Image Issues?
I want you to know that you are not alone. There is no shame in admitting that you can relate. Many women suffer from a negative body image. And unfortunately that negative image can directly impact your sex life. The problem is, if you don't let go of those body hang-ups, it can slowly derail your relationship. Or if you are newly involved, it can stop that relationship dead in its tracks.
Most men want to date or be in a relationship with a confident woman; a woman who can enjoy herself, who is content with her own presence and who is not afraid to be vulnerable and let it all hang out. The truth is, if he senses your uncertainty or your lack of confidence and you are newly in the relationship, don't be surprised if he bolts. Men don't want that kind of headache. He wants to have fun getting to know you....not sift through to find out who you really are.
