Are you nervous about being naked in front of your partner? You’re not alone. There are many reasons why you might not be feeling comfortable in your body at any given moment. If you’re struggling with confidence, it can be tough to enjoy sex. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to start feeling more comfortable in your skin.
Invest in a little help.
If you’re struggling with confidence before and during sex, there is nothing wrong with enlisting some help. Sex toys are always a good choice, and these days, there are more options available than ever before, including vibrators, anal toys, clitoral suction devices, and more—just be sure to choose toys made from safe, washable materials.
There are also many different types of products and supplements to aid with arousal, stimulate your libido, and increase your sexual stamina. Whether you’re looking for a male enhancement supplement like Erectin or a natural aphrodisiac like ginkgo biloba, there’s a whole world of products out there aimed at improving almost every aspect of sexual performance. Make sure to consult with your health care provider before trying any new supplement.
You can also keep it simple and start by exploring different types of lubricants. Some lubricants are made to promote blood circulation and increase arousal while others provide basic lubrication. Take time to browse the wide range of options available!
Wear something sexy.
Another way to get more comfortable in your body is to wear clothing that makes you feel sexy. It’s important to remember that “sexy” looks different to everyone, so you’ll need to explore different types of lingerie, underwear, and bras (or even costumes!) to find what works for you. Finding the most comfortable underwear for your body should be a priority, and you don’t need to sacrifice comfort in the name of sex.
Experimenting with different fabrics (e.g., lace and mesh), styles (e.g., bikini and thong), and sizes is key to finding the perfect fit and feel for your body. Whether you opt for cotton granny panties or a lace bralette and thong, as long as you feel good in it, that’s all that matters. Just be sure to avoid synthetic materials and opt for breathable fabric whenever possible, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Of course, going commando is always a great option!
Explore your body.
Touching yourself is a great way to get to know your body and feel more comfortable with yourself. It can help you learn what feels good and how to please yourself. Touching also releases endorphins, which make you feel good. If you haven’t spent time exploring your body before, it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are some tips to help you on your self-touch journey:
Get comfortable. Find a place where you can be alone and won’t be disturbed. Make sure the room is warm enough, and undress completely or wear something that makes you feel sexy.
Explore. Start by touching your skin all over, running your hands through your hair, and squeezing your muscles. Pay special attention to your erogenous zones—the places on your body that turn you on sexually. Explore them with your fingers, lips, tongue, or other objects.
Experiment! Try different kinds of touches and speeds until you find what feels good for you. Some people like light touches while others prefer firmer pressure. Some people like to stimulate their genitals directly while others enjoy indirect stimulation. There’s no wrong way to touch yourself as long as it feels good!
In summary, feeling comfortable in your own body before sex can sometimes be a challenge, but there are some things you can try to boost your confidence—and your sexual satisfaction.
