How to give feedback in bed without crushing your partner’s self-esteem

It’s a cliché, but it’s true: you can’t read your partner’s mind, and they can’t read yours. This is as true when it comes to sex as it is when you’re fighting about unloading the dishwasher.

Yeah, we’re saying you’re going to have to talk. About sex. Because despite what we’ve all been told, good sex doesn’t just happen all by itself.

Is negative body image killing your sex life?

Unfortunately, as most of us have probably figured out by now, we live in an effed up society where women and femmes are expected to conform to a strict set of rules about how to look (not to mention how to dress, talk, act, work, parent, not parent, and generally live our damn lives). And being constantly bombarded with these toxic messages can cause us to experience negative body image and low self-esteem. This is a big topic to unpack but because we’re us, we’re going to focus on how negative body image can affect us in bed, not just at the beach.
