Every relationship deserves a healthy sex life. Sex is what sets a romantic relationship apart from any other relationship. Ideally, sex is a physical expression of the deep emotional connection between a couple who love each other. Since we hear so much from the couples we work with about connecting better sexually, we thought it would be helpful to share with our readers too. We hope each of you will find these tips useful all week!
Connect on an Emotional Level Outside the Bedroom
It is hard to have a fulfilling sexual experience when you don't feel connected emotionally. The more emotionally intimate a couple is, the more fulfilling the sex. When you trust someone fully, share as if you are emotionally naked, and truly love and respect your partner, physical intimacy will have more meaning and satisfaction.
Remember that treating your partner well emotionally will open them up to a more vulnerable sexual experience. Using harsh words and criticism can cause your partner to be guarded, which will lessen the physical fulfillment and could cause distractions during sex.
Working hard at the emotional relationship will have multiple rewards for both of you- even sexually!
