Developing good communication is important in relationships, and that's just as true when it comes to sex—which is why knowing how to describe what you want in bed is such a valuable skill. Piping up about a new turn-on, or wanting to try new positionscan increase the intimacy between the two of you—or even rekindle the spark when you and a longtime partner have plateaued in the bedroom. Sometimes, a fear they'll bruise their partner's ego holds them back, Tanner says. Often, they don't know how to answer the question even when they're asked, because they don't even know what they want. So it's important for people to name their communication barrier. No matter what's kept you from making a sexual request to your partner, you can definitely learn how to do it proudly. Commands like harder, slower faster, a little to the right, for example.

It can even cause you to wonder but your relationship is ultimately doomed. Sanam Hafeeza clinical psychologist based in Additional York City.
