Are You Dissatisfied With Your Sex Life With Your Partner? Couples Counseling, Ilissa Banhazl, MFT, Glendora, La Verne, Upland

Ask for what you like sexually!

You have to talk about sex!

Whether you’ve been married a short time or many years, there will come a time where you may have to address your sex life. Most people are uncomfortable talking about it. Our parents didn’t do a great job of making us feel comfortable with our own sexuality.  In fact, for women it was quite the opposite. Be a good girl!

It’s okay to tell your partner what you like. You can even say; can you move a little to the left! First, you need to know your own body and what you like. You’ll have to spend time exploring yourself. Another no no from most parents that may have left you feeling it was wrong to touch yourself. Your parents probably weren’t comfortable with their own sexuality. Once you know what you like you can tell your partner. It may feel embarrassing at first but the more you do it the easier it will get.

Young women today are more sexually active at an earlier age. You would think that they are more comfortable with their sexuality than previous generations. However, just because you’re doing it doesn’t mean your satisfied or are courageous enough to share with your partner about your sexual needs and fantasies.

If you are stuck in your sexual relationship with your partner and would like to work on fixing that call me at (626) 335-0903. We’ll take a look and figure out what’s going on and see if we can create new ways of being with one anther.

I’m sorry to say that sex isn’t always like what we see in the movies. Real people need to talk about sex! You’ll be surprised to find that it, does not ruin the romance, it actually helps create it. What’s better than knowing that your partner wants to please you? Don’t forget to ask about what they like!
