When it comes to relationships you always hear how important communication is, and it’s a very common theme in our discussions during Just the Tip Tuesday. This week’s topic is no different.

In fact, Nisha McKenzie (Grand Rapids OB/GYN & Center for Women's Sexual Health) says sex is more about communication than it is about the genitals. And when it comes to having a healthy sex life you want to make sure you’re communicating with your partner about your wants, needs and desires.

Nisha and I “role play” some examples on how to bring up the subject (obviously I’m the awkward one in the relationship). There are different ways to approach the situation, including what to say/do in regards to your partner’s response. Even if your partner isn’t on board there are ways to compromise so that both of your needs are met. Again, it all comes back to communication.

The bottom line is if there’s something you’ve been wanting to try but are afraid or embarrassed to bring it up… don’t be! You should feel comfortable talking to your partner and vice versa. Plus, chances are they have their own fantasies they’ve been thinking about as well and are just as nervous to bring it up. But someone’s got to, right?

So watch the video to get your weekly tip and then start talking to your partner! … Dirty of course ;-)
