My boyfriend is shy in bed
Registered in Ireland: How can I build his confidence? If he has never shown any interest in being sexually assertive and he regularly insists on having the lights off, his reticence could either be sexual anxiety, or it could be related to negative body image. Darkness often becomes a security blanket for men and women who feel insecure for whatever reason. Good sexual relationships are predicated on mutual trust, and that takes time to build, so being sensitive to his feelings is likely to be a more effective strategy than throwing on the lights and demanding more adventure. However, in all committed relationships there comes a point where couples feel safe enough to relax and drop their guard, and as you become more familiar with each other, some of his self-consciousness may dissipate naturally.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Ignoring My BF for 24 h // He cheated on me?! - Gacha Life ITA/ENG

16 Things I Wish I Knew Before Dating a Shy Guy
Everyone's been there: You meet a guy, you're totally into him, things go well and later a month, a week, an hour you find yourself in bed with him. The music's right, but something's wrong. Very wrong.
Why didn't anyone tell him how bad that feels? I wonder if I can wear my new Club Monaco skirt with a white shirt and boots? It's never a good sign when your mind has left the bed and gone into the closet. But what's a girl to do? Let's get something straight: Making a guy better in bed is actually about making sex better for you. Everyone wins!
Of course, some women are better at asking for what they want than others. When I first started inquiring among my virtually Victorian circle about how to go about this, my friend Patty said, "I feel funny giving directions; it's like telling the cab driver what route to take…and I'm not really sure how to get there anyway. Here, their advice on how to make over….
You know those movies where the young couple is having sex for the first time and it's pretty much the guy lifting the girl's skirt, neither of them looking at each other, and then he sticks his thing in and…it's over? Well, that happens in real life, too. I once practically had a guy tell me he was done while I was unlocking my front door for us to go into my apartment.
I guess the anticipation was more than he could manage. Sherrie, 36, found that she was getting a little further than that with her guy, but not by a whole lot. I told him to go ahead and finish by himself. By the time we got to round two, he was ready to go the distance. The flip side of this coin can be just as troubling.
Frankly, I'm surprised she doesn't walk like John Wayne. Allana, 25, was dating someone who took forever to finish. My narration was apparently exciting enough for him that more than half of the time, our trains pulled into the station at the same time! Many of the women I interviewed saw this flaw as a complete deal breaker. They believe it's not something you can teach or get past. Then I used this scenario: If you're dating Leo DiCaprio and he starts slobbering all over your face, you're going to say forget it?
Take your movie-star ass outta my sight? I don't think so. I think you'd work with him—and you should. Eleanor, 39, gets that: "I was recently dating a guy who could not kiss. I love to kiss, so it was a huge turnoff. And it worked! He began to automatically do it exactly the way I like. My friend Janet, 27, said she dated a guy who kissed "very drooly, like a teething baby.
The way she dealt with it wasn't so secret: Very obviously, in the midst of a make-out session, she got a towel and wiped her mouth. If it hadn't, I was going to come back with a mop. Back in my dating-a-million-guys period—postcollege, pre-having to get up in the morning—I was seeing a guy who did the dirty-talk thing, and I loathed it.
But it wasn't his potty mouth that bothered me, it was the things he asked me to say. Once he wanted me to tell him to you-know-what me and I said, "Are you nuts? I'd never say that! I'm wearing a satin nightgown, white. No, dusty rose. No, yellow. By then the guy would either have drifted off to sleep or gone out for a hooker. My friend Alice, 31, had a slightly more useful method with a guy she dated a few years back: "He loved to say dirty stuff while we were making out and he would ask all kinds of ridiculous questions and expect answers.
Alice would try to play along, but her heart just wasn't in it. Finally one night after a lot to drink I blurted out, Shut up! I don't want to talk anymore! And it improved our sex life incredibly. They broke up but remained friends. She said he now asks his girlfriends if they like dirty talk before imposing it on them.
When I was 11, my mom's sister was getting divorced, and they wanted to see a movie and brought me along. The movie was Coming Home , the emotional story of a Vietnam vet a young Jon Voight who falls in love with the wife a young Jane Fonda of an officer at war.
Voight is paralyzed from the waist down, and after a lot of plot, the two of them end up in bed. All you see is the top of his head going up and down under the covers and she's saying things like "Softly, slowly. When I saw the movie again as an adult, I told my mother she was lucky that child welfare didn't cart her away. But I also thought, Jeez, Jane's giving him some pretty serious instructions—good for her.
If only the rest of us were so bold! Felicia, 24, says, "I was once in a relationship with a man who left a lot to be desired when he went down on me. First I let go of the feeling that there shouldn't' have been a problem to begin with, that the emotional connection we shared had to automatically translate into perfect sex.
Then one night I asked him to show me how he liked to be touched. He was open and frank—and eager to reciprocate. Since we had an open line of communication going, I was comfortable telling him what I liked, and from then on, a whole new dynamic of unbelievably sexy fun became the basis of our physical relationship.
You know the euphemism "nailing"? Like "Oh, yeah, dude, I nailed her"? Well, some guys seem to take it literally. Catherine, 25, had that jackhammer experience with an otherwise perfect man. Her tutoring technique: "It's all about mixing the directions in with compliments. You can't make a guy feel like he's doing something wrong or he'll go on the defensive. So you say, Wow, that feels so good when you're gentle' and then quickly follow it with a Keep that up. There are slightly more direct tactics, too.
A Rottweiler puppy? One time I did it the right way and he loved it, the next time I did it his way, and he did not love it. He got the message—and I got to keep my nipples. I never like to generalize, but many of the smartest guys I've dated have been the dumbest at sex. I remember lying in bed with a guy who tried to impress me by naming all the chief justices of the Supreme Court and which president had nominated them.
This was by far his greatest bedroom talent. We didn't last long. Marisol, who's 43 and involved with a year-old "I'm a bit of a cougar," she offers freely , didn't give up that easily. Her strategy: phone sex. And it allowed me to say exactly what I wanted, so the next time we were together, he delivered. Trish, 38, taught her boyfriend what worked and what did not. He didn't have a clue. He actually thought thrusting my head into him while I was going down on him was good…not!
This is a pretty common move from some guys, and no one likes it. Fortunately Trish had a surefire way to get this guy to keep his hands to himself. These tactics may work for you, or they may not. The trick is to try…something. You owe it to yourself. And if you wind up going your separate ways after you've molded your man into a brilliant lover, well, chalk it up to making the world a better place—his next girlfriend will thank you.
