Does the prospect of talking about your sexual desires bring a blush to your cheeks? You’re not the only one. Despite the majority of us being sexually active, we can sometimes be reluctant to talk through what does (or doesn't) happen in the bedroom.
In 2021, a survey by the app Paired discovered that using sex toys, exploring bondage or BDSM, trying multiple-partner sex and watching porn together are among the top ten fantasies we struggle to talk about with our partners. Two out of five of us are hesitant to speak up when something turns us off, and, on average, men are twice as likely to worry about their partner’s reaction when discussing their own sexual fantasies.
