How can you deal with unsatisfying sex with your partner?
Sometimes, unsatisfying sex with your partner can be just the beginning of a number of problems that you and your partner need to sort out.
Let's face it, sex can be fun, but sometimes, even if you love your partner, it can be unsatisfying. There's nothing wrong about thinking that way, but there is something wrong if you don't do anything about it.
Here are some things that you can do to get your bedroom problem sorted out:
Talk to each other about it
As with all things in a relationship, communication is very important. If you feel that your partner might take it the wrong way, then take your time and figure out how best to tell it to them without making them feel that it's their fault, or that there's something wrong with them.
Relationships need both partners to work, so if you have a problem in the bedroom, assure them that the both of you will be the ones to work on it and get it sorted out.
Be honest with each other
Aside from talking about it, it's also important to be honest about your needs in the bedroom. For a lot of traditional Filipinos, talking about sex, even with their partner, isn't something that's usually done. But if you really want to have a better sex life, tell them what you like, what you don't like, and ask them in turn what they like and don't like.
Sometimes, the reason why you're unsatisfied in bed is because your partner isn't satisfied as well. Maybe it's just a matter of knowing each other's needs and desires, and working on how you can give them those things.
In some cases, it's because they feel tired, or stressed due to work, or other responsibilities. All of these things play a role when it comes to you and your partner's performance in bed, so that's a good place to start asking.
Try something new
If you're unsure of what you want, then why not try something new to spice up the relationship? There are various sex positions that you can utilize if you want to try something new. You can also mix things up a bit by changing your routine before you have sex.
Some couples opt for using toys, or watching certain videos to get them in the mood. It really depends on you and your partner's comfort level since what might work for one couple doesn't always work for another.
As always, talk, talk talk. Keep the lines of communication open, be honest, and don't make your partner feel that they're judged or that it's their fault. Work on it together, and we're sure that you'll have a happier time in the bedroom!
