(a) TIPS FOR BETTER SEX
1. Develop the nonsexual sides of your relationship; sharing common interests such as music, camping, and sports can help maintain the partnership OUTSIDE the BEDROOM.
2. COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PARTINER; Convey specific information to each other concerning the sexual activities that are the most pleasurable as well as the least desirable. If you like having your breast kissed or you do not like your buttocks squeezed say no.
3. Keep sex spontaneous; the predictability of sexual activity can make it less exciting.
4. Make sex more interesting by varying the stimulations in which it occurs; Be creative and find unusual locations, wear provocative sleepwear or undergarments, or try new positions for sex.
5. ALLOW ENOUGH TIME FOR SEX; spend some time talking, touching, caressing, and kissing before having sexual intercourse. These activities can be the prelude to a more satisfying sexual relationship.
6. AVOID WORRYING ABOUT ORGASMS OR SEXUAL PERFORMANCES; you may find that it is not essential to have orgasms or accomplish penetration during every sexual encounter to feel sexually satisfied.
7. THINKING ABOUT FULFILLING YOUR LOVERS NEEDS BEFORE YOURS; if you are not interested in receiving sexual stimulation at the same time, concentrate on satisfying your lover. Your partner may be willing to reciprocate at some other time.
8. RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ARE NO RECIPES FOR PERFECT SEX; Focus on the sensations and emotions surrounding the sexual experience rather than the mechanics.
9. AVOID MAKING AN ISSUE OUT OF YOUR PARTINER 'S OCCATIONAL LACK OF INTEREST IN SEX OR INABILITYTO HAVE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE; Even in the best of relationships, it is normal to have time when the conditions are not right for sex. If such problems persist, seek professional advice.
(b) MIND YOUR SEXUAL MANNERS
The following guidelines can help you to make socially responsible decisions regarding your sexual behavior:-
(i) Never force sex on another person, regardless of the situation.
(ii) Understand that at any time in a relationship, when a person says no, that means no, not yes or may be.
(iii) Avoid situations that can impair your ability to make responsible sexual decisions, especially stations that involve alcohol and other drug use.
