18 Aug You’ve Each Already Explored Your Sexuality On Your Own
We're always hearing that we could be having better sex, a better orgasm, or a better relationship. But how often do we hear the nitty-gritty of how we can actually better understand our deepest desires and most embarrassing questions? Bustle has enlisted Vanessa Marin, a sex therapist, to help us out with the details. No gender, sexual orientation, or question is off limits, and all questions remain anonymous. Now, onto today's topic: how to know if you're sexually compatible with someone.
Q: I've been in two long-term relationships that fell apart because we stopped having sex. I know that chemistry fades in a relationship, but each of these relationships went through drastic sexual drop-offs. I ended the relationship each time, and even though they were hard decisions, I was proud of myself for realizing I needed more. Sex is an important part of a relationship for me! Now that I'm starting to date again, I'm wondering if I should be changing my dating strategy to find more suitable partners. My question is: how can you know if you'll be sexually compatible with someone in the long-term?
A: Thanks for the great question! I'm glad you've been able to give yourself some validation for making tough choices in your dating life. There are so many people out there who are afraid to end a relationship because they're not compatible, and as a result, we have lots of sexually incompatible relationships out there!
