Studies show that couples who have sex at least once per week tend to be happier than their counterparts. Sex reinforces intimacy between partners, releases endorphins -- and let's face it -- it's just plain fun.
But if you're having trouble satisfying your partner, you might feel frustrated, scared, or even inferior. Not to worry, putting that spark back into your sex life isn't as tough as you might think!
Keep reading to find out how to pleasure a woman and revitalize your time in the bedroom.
Put Her Needs First
Whether you're looking to pleasure a man, woman, or non-binary individual, this is just great advice. Always aim to put the needs of your partner above your own -- at least, in the bedroom.
Being selfish with your lovemaking doesn't help anyone. Yes, it's great that you can get yourself off, but remember that you're with another person.
Communicate often, asking what feels good and what your partner wants.
Brush up on Your Anatomy
It's more than a little discomforting that some people still believe women orgasm from penetration alone. While some women do, penetration-based orgasms are extremely rare, with somewhere between 70% and 90% of women being unable to orgasm through penetration.
Instead, you'll want to focus on a few key areas, namely the clitoris and the g-spot.
We'll start with the clitoris, which is a small, button-like area near the top of the vulva above the urethra. It contains thousands of nerve endings, making it extremely sensitive and essential to the female orgasm.
Meanwhile, the g-spot is a grouping of nerves located within the vagina itself, about two to three inches in. It feels a bit different than other vaginal tissue, as it's a bit bumpier, and you'll know when you've found it.
The best way to please your woman is by utilizing both. Ask her to show you how she masturbates and be sure to focus on these two key areas.
Break out the Toys and Supplements
Toys and supplements are great for spicing things up and adding a bit of variety to your lovemaking. And before you break a sweat thinking about how you'll walk into your local sex shop, it's worth noting that the taboo surrounding adult toys has dissipated quite a bit according to research.
If you're new to toys, you can start with the basics like vibrators and toys that target the g-spot. But make no mistake, sex toys aren't only for women.
