Here Are 4 Myths About Older Women and Sex that Need To Go Away Immediately
12 Things Sex Therapists Wish You Knew
"'If your partner is into something you're not, don't bring shame into the discussion,' says sex therapist Carla Rosinski, MA, LMHC. 'We have enough baggage about sex as it is. Just as with any communication in a relationship, you want both you and your partner to feel safe to talk about feelings and desires without judgment. If your partner brings up something you're not into and really not willing to try out, be kind and honest about it. Or just take the risk and experiment!'"
7 Subtle Signs You Could Be More Confident In Bed & Should Let Go A Little
"4. You Never Masturbate
If you don't want to go down there, why should your partner? If you find masturbation to gross and uncomfortable, you're probably not in touch enough with your own sexuality to make sex fun and enjoyable, says Carla Rosinski, LMHC, a Sex Therapist, over email with Bustle.
5. You Get Embarrassed By Sex Scenes
If you're freaked out by sexy or raunchy scenes in movies, you could probably be a little more confident in bed, as well, says Rosinski. That is, unless you're watching with your parents, of course. Remember, you're a grown ass woman. You deserve wild sex. No shame.
