When you have chores and worries, it’s easy to rush to the finish line when you’re in the bedroom. While that might be fun every once in a while, you lose a lot of the magic (and the pleasure!) along the way. Slow down. Remember what it was like to be young and in the thralls of passion. Remember: It’s perfectly okay to take your time in the bedroom. Your laundry can wait.
When you don’t feel confident in your body, this can impact your ability to let go in the bedroom. We all have self-esteem issues from time to time. It’s a normal part of being a human. However, you must learn to trust your partner cares about the full you – mind, body and spirit. They love you for who you are – looks and all. They’re likely thrilled to have you join them in bed. They don’t care if you’re a few pounds from your goal weight. Embrace what it is that makes you feel confident and special.
Don’t be afraid to take some extra time to make yourself look your best for your partner. You might try lingerie from Three Wishes to give yourself all the right curves.
