5 Questions About Sex You’re Too Afraid to Ask

October 23, 2015

It’s easy to be embarrassed about asking sex questions. Sex is something we learn how to do with the privacy of a partner, and we all know that many of the sex we see in the movies and on television isn’t exactly like the real thing. However, there are still questions most women would like the answers to, but are too afraid to ask. Below are answers to five common questions you might be too scared to say out loud.

1. Can I hurt my partner’s penis?

Yes, it is possible, but it takes rather vigorous sexual activity to cause an erect penis to suffer any type of fracture. Be practical, and both of you should be fine.

2. Why does my partner reach his orgasm and I don’t?

It’s common for men to orgasm before women. However, it’s important to understand that stimulation beyond vaginal intercourse is what many women need in order to orgasm. Don’t be shy in asking your partner to help you get there.

3. What should I do with my hair…down there?

Many women choose to shave their bikini line and pubic area, but ultimately, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to body hair. Do whatever makes you comfortable.

4. I don’t think I like sex anymore. Is something wrong with me?

Children and the stresses of marriage can reduce a woman’s sex drive, as well as menopause. However, you can try to find ways to nurture your desire. Being open and honest with your partner can help increase your sex drive, but if you’re concerned there is a medical issue causing your sex drive to plummet, contact your OB-GYN.

5. Is anal sex or anal play healthy and normal?

Yes, anal sexual activity is normal and shouldn’t make you feel ashamed. However, condoms should be used to help keep you protected from STIs. Also, never use the same condom when switching from anal play to vaginal intercourse.
