But how often do we actually hear the nitty-gritty details of how we might actually achieve those things?
Bustle has enlisted Vanessa Marin, a d sex psychotherapist based in San Francisco, to help us out with the specifics. Q: I started dating someone new a few weeks ago, and things are going very well. I always struggle with when to sleep with someone new.
How do you know you're ready? A: Sexual decision making is tricky for most of us. There are so many different factors at play — the excitement of being with someone new, social expectations, gender roles, not to mention sex drives and hormones! I know, I know, this is the hardest part of the equation.
But it's important for you to take the time to figure out what you want from sex at this point in your new relationship. Don't ever have sex because you're feeling pressured to or because you feel like it's expected.
Do you want to fool around and have a good time? Do you want to move your relationship to the next stage? Part of knowing what you want from sex involves getting to know your sexual valuesfor example — is being monogamous before you have sex with someone important to you? Consider some of your past sexual experiences, and use them as guides. Have you slept with people too quickly? Keep in mind that sometimes knowing your sexual boundaries involves a little trial and error.
One of the biggest mistakes I see women making is having sex with someone new with the hopes that it will make him or her want to become more serious. Doing the deed isn't automatically going to push your partner into starting a relationship, becoming monogamous, proposing to you, or falling in love with you. If you want your relationship to become more serious, tell your new beau that you'd like to sleep together, but that you want to have "the talk" first. You can be casual about it no need to deliver a lengthy monologue about your five-year plan while still being clear.
What do you do then? If you've identified values that are important to you, stick to your guns. One in every three or four adults have a sexually transmitted infection. At the very least, be clear that condom usage is a must.
You may also want to talk about sexual history and STI status. These kinds of conversations can be uncomfortable in the moment, but that doesn't make them any less important. Consider the fact that a lot of first-time sexual encounters with new partners are awkward as hell. Picture something embarrassing happening with this new partner, and see if you can imagine the two of you handling it with grace or laughing it off together.
That doesn't mean the morning after has to be spent with the person you just slept with. Everyone experiences twinges of sexual guilt or shame. But there's a big difference between feeling a little anxiety and feeling like you betrayed yourself. Consider how you think you'll feel afterwards, and if you know you'll feel badly, consider waiting. How have your hook-up sessions been thus far?
Is there enough sexual chemistry to make you curious about taking the next step? You can learn a lot about a person by the way they talk about sex. Do they engage in slut-shaming? Do they make fun of hacked celebrity nudes? Do they denigrate exes? These are all s of how they might act towards you once they've slept with you.
Is this a kind and respectful person?
Do they follow through on things when they say they will? Have they made you feel comfortable and at ease those times you've done "everything but"? Are they pressuring you to have sex? There are plenty of people who wished they had waited longer to have sex, but not many who wished they had done it sooner. By Vanessa Marin.Sex partner ready want sex
