In an ideal relationship, you and your partner would always be on the same page when it comes to sex: you'd either both be down to get it on or both be closed for business. It'd be seamless. But unfortunately, no one has that kind of ideal relationship (and if you do, tell me your secrets!). Chances are you and your SO won't always agree about how and when you want to meet beneath the sheets. Luckily, if you needs some tips for talking to your partner about wanting sex either more or less frequently, I've got you covered.
According to sex therapist and social worker Danica Mitchell, if you and your SO have a discrepancy in your sexual desire, that's totally normal. "People have different libidos and preferences around sex," she explains. "If you never talk about sex, it will feel more uncomfortable to bring it up out of the blue. But if you talk about sex more frequently, it won't be so scary if you need or want to bring something up." Here are a few ways you can try talking to your partner about your sexual needs if you're not sure where to start.
