You need a certain set of skills to land a job, and you need another special set of skills to keep your partner pleased. Your relationships won’t last long unless you know the proper way to behave in the bedroom. You can’t be selfish, can’t be impatient, and can’t be oblivious. What you can do is learn these skills that will guarantee you’ll have a healthy sex life:

1. How to Pay Attention

If you want to please your partner, you have to pay attention to what they respond well to. Do they moan whenever you kiss their collarbone, or do they stiffen their neck? If you can’t tell what they like by their body language, all you have to do is ask. Don’t be embarrassed, because it’ll only help increase their pleasure.

2. How to Take Control

Your partner shouldn’t always get to be the boss. They deserve a break every once in a while. Even if your lover is a dominatrix, it’s always nice to switch up your roles. Jump on top of them and do whatever you wish (with consent, as you know). If you’re shy, all you have to do is initiate the lovemaking. It’s a small step, but it shows confidence.

3. How to Return the Favor

It’s not fair for you to orgasm three times in one night without bothering to pay attention to your partner’s needs. Sex is all about give and take. If you ever want to sleep with your partner again, you have to make sure that they get something out of it as well. You can’t be greedy.

4. How to be Patient

You’re probably not going to hop into bed with your new partner after your first date. You’ll have to wait a little while to get the goodies, because you don’t want to rush into things. If you have sex before you’re ready, it could harm your relationship. It’s best to wait until both of you are 100% good to go.

5. How to Build Up Excitement

Contrary to popular belief, sex doesn’t begin once you insert one item into another. It starts with foreplay, which can take on many different forms. You can build up excitement with kisses in bed, or much earlier in the day when you send a naughty text message. Whatever you do, make sure it gets your partner going crazy.

6. How to Move

Learn how to thrust your hips, arch your back, and stretch your legs, so you can impress your partner with your moves. The more you’re able to do with your body, the better. When it comes to sex, that body the best tool you have, so make sure you know what you’re doing with it.

7. How to Increase Stamina

It doesn’t matter how flexible you are if you can only hold a position for five seconds. You need to be able to stay moving for an extended period of time so that the sex doesn’t end sooner than it should. You wouldn’t want to collapse on your bed before either of you finish, would you?

Sex is a blast, but it’s also hard work if you want to give your partner everything they deserve. Don’t settle for a boring sex life when you have the potential to make every session special. Aim high.
