A new study has revealed that people who changed their sexual habits for their partner reported higher levels of relationship satisfaction. The study, reported in the Journal of Sexual Research, said that compromises, such as more frequent sex, indulging in your partner’s fantasies or kinks, or changing when you have sex leads to overall happiness in the relationship.
This is well worth noting. How many couples do you know who are misaligned in the amount or type of sex they want. And how many of those same couples seem stuck in a rut where they cannot rationally discuss this misalignment with their parter. Sex is such a charged topic in most relationships that any mismatched expectations or desire quickly become awkward sources of tension that can neither be discussed or resolved.
People dig into their sexual positions (figuratively speaking) and small compromises become matters of principle – will occasional morning sex or a finger up the ass really be that traumatizing; you might even like it.
This study is important. Tonight, try something that your partner wants, only because they want it. Science tells us – you may very well enjoy the act or at least the act of pleasing your partner.
