We all make mistakes in our daily lives. For some reason, sex seems to get elevated to an area where ‘mistakes’ are taboo, but we are all just human and we don’t always get everything right the first time.
Sex is meant to be fun, not something that you have to get perfect the first time, or every time afterward. If you are worried about making a mistake in the bedroom, then read on for the most commonly made mistakes.
This can help you steer clear of any sex mistakes so that you and your partner can focus on enjoying yourselves. Let’s begin!
Not Using Protection
This can lead to unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases. This is the part that you won’t like about especially if you’re not ready for a new responsibility yet, or worse, get sick. But, here are two key ways to avoid this mistake:
Always Use a Condom
Always use a condom when having sex, even if you are in a monogamous relationship. This will help protect you and your partner from STIs. If you are unsure how to use a condom, ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist for help.
It is so important to get tested for STDs/STIs and HIV before having sex with someone new. There are many resources available for free or low-cost testing. It is irresponsible to have unprotected sex without knowing your status.
Even if you trust your partner, it is always best to use a condom to protect yourself from STDs/STIs. If you make these two simple mistakes, you can avoid most of the others.
Not Communicating With Your Partner
This can lead to misunderstanding, which can ruin the sexual experience for both partners. It is important to communicate with your partner before, during, and after sex. This is to ensure that both partners are enjoying the experience.
If you are not communicating with your partner, you may not be able to tell if they are enjoying the experience. This can also lead to resentment and conflict.
Not Enjoying Yourselves
This can be a major turn-off for your partner and can make the experience less than pleasurable for both of you. Make sure you lubricate before starting. This will help reduce friction and make the experience more pleasurable.
Taking deep, even breaths will also help you relax and enjoy the experience more. Pay attention to your body and what feels good. If something doesn’t feel good, don’t be afraid to speak up and ask your partner to change things.
If you are also unable to enjoy yourself because of erectile dysfunction problems, don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor. They can give you an erectile dysfunction treatment that you need for better sexual health.
