There is no need to panic or even be nervous about talking sex with your wife as you can handle it quite easily. To sideline nervousness, you need to prepare for it. The preparation helps you bring up intimate subjects with surety and confidence. Talking to your wife about sex carries an element of risk, but remembering few advices will help you a lot.

Honesty: Honesty is indeed the best policy, especially when you are talking about sex with your spouse. If you are addressing this subject, be honest and talk to the point with your wife. She must know whatever is in your mind.

Wait for the Right Time: Timing is very important, so time this move. Bringing it up suddenly in the middle of an important conversation may annoy your wife. Discussing such issues during sex is a bad idea. Take time out if you are resolving some aspect of your sexual relationship. Comfort of your partner is very important to discuss sex.

Clear Doubts: Don’t hesitate to ask her questions to clear your doubts. This will give you the idea about how she sees things. Knowing her perspective will help you eliminate relationship differences and build a healthy relationship.

Be a good Listener: Pay attention to what she is saying. Listen carefully throughout the conversation to carry on with and make it a fruitful conversation. Don’t interrupt when she is speaking.

Respect her Point-of-view: If you need your spouse to be understanding, you will also have to be one. Give respect to her, her way of seeing things and her ways to make things better.

Don’t be Aggressive: Don’t put forth questions as if you’re conducting a trial. Avoid being aggressive or condescending. You have to convey thoughts and feelings without a hint of aggression in it. Your anger will suppress your spouse and she will end up not being comfortable to share her feelings. Stay friendly, which can increase the likelihood of a fruitful conversation. Never criticise, annoy and blame your wife for a poor sex life.
