There's little that's sexier than a confident lover; someone who knows what they want in the bedroom and is comfortable enough to ask for it. This kind of confidence might come naturally for some people, while for others, it may take a little more work to get in the right frame of mind. That's OK too, but knowing that you want to feel like your best, most powerful self in the bedroom and actually being able to shake off those nerves are two different things. That's why having a few tips for feeling confident before a hookup to help lift your sexy spirits can be super helpful.
Feeling self-assured before a hookup not only allows you to be present in the moment, but can actually improve your overall satisfaction with the experience by giving you the confidence to get more of what you want out of it.

And when it comes to satisfaction, well, more is more. Here's how the experts say you can help boost your self-assurance and go boldly into the bedroom.
