Consider for a moment where the bulk of your sexual knowledge was attained. Porn? Some kid on the school playground? Your clueless friends?
Now consider that maybe it's time to rethink some of your theories on how to satisfy a woman. Are you making any of these mistakes?
You're Goal Oriented
One of the biggest mistakes men make is to only touch their gals when they want sex. That makes your lady feel resentful, not romantic. Make sure you're putting in some non-sexual contact time - holding her hand, surprising her with hugs, and not being stingy with your kisses. Women need to feel a positive connection with their lovers long before the nudity happens.
But So-and-So Loved It
Never, ever assume that the never-fail sex move you did that drove your ex crazy will work on your new girlfriend. Bedding a new woman is like traveling to a foreign country. Sure, you recognize the mountains and villages for what they are, but you need to learn the language and customs or you risk offending the locals and getting deported.
Overlooking Ouch Factors
Please do not jab her sensitive girl parts with your rough hands and ragged nails. Don't rub hot spots until she goes numb. And don't squeeze her breasts like you're testing grapefruit. That's not to say she doesn't like it a little rough now and then. She'd just rather you focus that not-so-tender attention on the parts of her body that can take it.
'Impressing' Us With Positions
You want your gal to get off, right? Well, that's not gonna happen if you keep twisting her this way and that, trying to impress her with your porn-star moves. Sure, a little variety keeps things spicy, but to ensure her satisfaction, find a move that works and stick with it until things reach their logical conclusion.
Assuming She's Satisfied
Just because you got off doesn't mean she did, too. Even if her mid-coitus screamfest left little doubt as to your success as her lover, it's never a bad idea to make sure there's nothing more you can do to please her.
