Overcoming Shyness in the Bedroom January 18, 2018 – Posted in: Adult Industry News
You may be surprised to find out that there are a lot of people who are rather shy about their bodies when it comes to getting active in the bedroom. Not everyone is as blatantly wild and willing to show off. In fact, many people will prefer to have sex with the lights out! Of course, this does depend on the kind of relationship between the two people in general.
Shyness in the bedroom can definitely hinder your enjoyment of sex. It is something that many people don’t even strive to get over. This is often because they may think of sex as a chore and therefore do it in the dark, wait until it is over and then simply go back to sleep. However, if you want to enjoy your sex life to the fullest then it is a good idea to follow these tips.
Get Used to Being Naked Around Your Partner
Being naked with your partner is probably one of the most intimate things about sex. While you can have sex fully or partially clothed, sex in the nude is all the more thrilling. Of course, in order to do this and enjoy it, you need to be used to being naked around a person. This is why you and your partner should organize to have some time together when you are both naked.
You can start off slow. Start by being partially nude around one another in everyday situations. You can also lie in bed together and cuddle with blankets covering you. Other ideas include having a shower or a bath together. In general, nudity will help to overcome the shyness you have about your own body.
Standing naked in front of the mirror and looking at yourself is also quite helpful. Look at the positive parts of your body and see that you are attractive and try to imagine that this is how your partner also feels. A lot of the time, many people may feel as if their partner is repulsed by them. However, this usually isn’t the case in reality.
Talking about your shyness with someone else can also help. You don’t necessarily have to speak to your partner about this, but it can be helpful. If you both discuss what makes you nervous about being naked in front of one another, you may end up finding certain obstacles that you can end up overcoming.
It is also helpful to talk about any sexual fetishes you may have. Shyness does not always mean that you are shy about your body. Perhaps you are afraid to reveal certain things to other people. As a result, it is a good idea for the two of you to have an open discussion about the kinds of things you fantasize about and maybe want to try out in the bedroom. You will certainly be surprised as to how much this can open up the lines of communication in general as well, so give it a try!
