How does communication affect sexual satisfaction?

This is more than just pillow talk.

Whether you and your partner find it thrilling, intimidating, or even completely out of the ordinary, discussing sexual concerns and fantasies can open a variety of intimate doors.

In 2017, sexual interests and trends took a wide variety of twists and turns, making it important to know at least the options available to explore.

Of course, talking about sex can be awkward and embarrassing for many, but developing this communicative skill is often the key to a healthier and and more satisfying sex life.

Wanting to know the current motivations and barriers behind sexual communication, we surveyed over 1,000 Europeans and Americans about everything from their specific sexual fantasies to the ease with which they were able to communicate their sexual concerns and interests with a partner.

Regardless of gender or nationality, respondents demonstrated a positive correlation between average sexual satisfaction and their partners’ communication skills.

Evidently, a possible key to being better in bed is being a better communicator.

Our panel of men and women in both Europe and the U.S. revealed unequivocally that an increase in their partner’s communication skills led to an improvement in their sex lives.

Communicating better isn’t always just about talking to each other. While experts indicate that engaging in small talk and asking questions of your partner is a good way to connect, sharing experiences and listening can be equally as important.

You can talk about yourself, but showing interest in what your partner has to say and utilising your listening skills play an important role too.

So what makes bringing up our sexual desires so difficult?

It’s not uncommon for someone to feel a fear of rejection or embarrassment when it comes to asking for what they want in bed, even in a long-term relationship. According to more than half of men (59 percent) and women (57 percent), the biggest issue was not wanting to hurt their partner’s feelings.

Being sensitive to your partner’s emotions is one of the most important considerations when bringing up your nighttime activities in casual conversation, but avoiding the conversation altogether can sometimes make things worse.

Women were also ten percent more likely to cite embarrassment as a factor barring them from easy sexual discussions.

Even adults who admit feeling comfortable with their sexuality can occasionally feel flustered with public exchanges focused on their sex lives.

Simple facts of life like buying contraceptivesor describing parts of the anatomy can create a sense of embarrassment that expands into the bedroom. To feel more comfortable tackling the talk of sex, planning out the conversation, picking the right time and place, and making sure you keep the conversation positive are just a few things that could help make bringing up the s-word with your partner just a little bit easier.

Other common reasons men and women avoided talking about sex? Being afraid of the outcome. Men were ten percent more likely to fear their partner’s response to a proposed sexual interest than women were.

You may think having more sex might make you feel happier with your partner, but one study found that the quality of sex (not the quantity) is what really matters. And as this study reveals, quality positively correlates with communicative abilities.

Proper communication isn’t just the key to an active sex life, it could be one of the two most important elements to establishing a happy, healthy relationship with your partner. People who were better at talking about their sex lives were rated as significantly better in bed than those who weren’t able to connect as openly.
