Sex is pretty much the reason anything ever gets done. Sex is a delicate act that requires open and direct communication between two partners. Yet a healthy sex life isn’t just about communicating with your partner. Because you also need to make sure you’re communicating honestly with yourself, which means listening to your thoughts and feelings. Follow these nine most important and unspoken sex rules below to ensure that you are taking inventory of your sexual needs, being mindful of your partner’s needs, and ultimately having a happy and healthy sex life.
#1. Consciously ask yourself if you truly feel like having sex
If only this rule were silly or ill-informed! However, far too often, men and women alike end up having sex when they don’t want to. The most common reason why people have sex, even if they don’t want to, is to avoid an argument with their partner. The problem is that obligatory sex is never truly satisfying, and often leads to shameful feelings that come from swallowing your own feelings.
