    “People who are good at sex don’t necessarily have to have had a lot of sex. They just need to be good at listening to feedback and picking up non-verbal cues. If you want to be good at sex for your partner, you’ll be constantly listening, observing, asking for feedback and reflecting on how to be a better lover.

When you welcome new experiences, you’ll be able to suggest trying new sex position or using sex toys and the like with your partner.
