6. You Don’t Talk About Sex.
Don’t keep each other in the dark about what you need, what you want, and when. Mixed signals can hamper a relationship—and if you don’t ask for what you want most because you’re afraid of hurting his feelings, then you’re not doing the relationship any favors.
Fact is, couples who are willing to talk openly about their sex lives are more likely to have more satisfying sex. Strong sexual communication takes practice, so start off slow—it can be as simple as asking your partner to do something that gets you going the next time you’re in bed, and telling him exactly why it makes you hot.
