how to have a better sexual experience!
Dr. Laura Berman, OB/GYN, was a frequent guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show and now has her own show called In the Bedroom on the OWN network. She talked with Jamie Beckman, relationships writer for SheKnows and editor of SheKnows’ sex blog, Sexcerpts, about moves women can make to create some serious passion when making love with their partner.
Now let’s focus on a very important topic: your pleasure! Body image is a big part of that, and we’re here to tell you that the body issues you think you have aren’t on his radar — so get busy focusing on your own enjoyment!
In the video, Dr. Berman offers this sex advice:
- Self-stimulation is OK! You don’t have to rely on a man for your pleasure. “It’s really about both of you, and you’re as important in the sexual act as he is…. It’s really about making your own sexual needs a priority and nothing to be ashamed of,” she says.
- He doesn’t notice your cellulite — promise! “When he’s looking at you, he just sees the whole gorgeous silhouette,” Dr. Berman says.
- Guess what: He actually likes more curves, not fewer! What men actually want is much larger than the size that women think that they should be.
