Physical intimacy in relationships is important. Whether you’re married or in a committed relationship, the physical side to any partnership is vital. Verbal affection is also important, but most people feel that the physical connection is much more difficult to establish in the first months of any courtship rather than the latter. If you’re in need of a few tips to enhance the physical intimacy in your life, you’ve come to the right place! Here are four tips to remember next time you’re alone with your partner.
Take it slow
Pardon the pun, but physical touching can be a touchy subject for many people. Some aren’t as comfortable with physical contact as others may be. Always be cognizant of your partner’s boundaries when it comes to getting busy. In a lot of cases, taking it slower can be a wonderful thing, not just on an emotional level, but on a physical level as well.
Don’t be Forceful
This tip ties into the previous one. Knowing boundaries will make your lover feel comfortable, and help establish ground rules. Hugging and kissing won’t always lead to something more. Once again, try to master his or her body language to gauge their physical wants and needs. Forcing any kind of physical touching is not recommended at all.
The little things
For a lot of guys, sex is the ultimate goal. And, in some cases, sex may be the only goal. You must understand that the same is not true with all females. Sometimes, a big hug can mean the world to your partner. A good hug or kiss at a meaningful moment, may leave a larger impression than any steamy session in the bedroom.
Channel your inner-Romeo
Remember when we told you to take it slow and work out the kinks with your partner physically? Well, there are things you can do to help them deal with any uneasiness associated with touching. Start participating in some sort of fun physical activities – going on walks, watching movies together, or riding a rollercoaster. Try to do anything you can do to sooth their physical hesitancy.
