How to deal with sexual incompatibility
To begin with, it's important to understand that sexual incompatibility is okay, even in long-term relationships and marriages. Many physiological, emotional, and psychological conditions can lead to a couple not being happy with their sexual relationship. Pregnancy, surgery, and depression are a few examples. However, thankfully, it can be dealt with. Here are 5 ways to help you deal with sexual incompatibility.
Bring the topic on table with your partner
If you feel that things aren't going quite well with your partner under the sheets, bring up the topic and discuss with them. Talking things up is the first step to dealing with sexual incompatibility. Things may not get better initially, but if you give each other enough time, understanding will come into play. You may also consider visiting your doctor for medical assistance.
Find out and deal with things that are stressing you
Stress can a complete turn-off. It can keep you from getting intimate for days to even months. If it's stress that's been ruining your sex life, find out and analyze the reasons. Start dealing with them one by one, to sort your relationship out.
Find other, non-sexual ways of getting intimate
Don't restrict your definition of intimacy to just sexual intercourse. Indulge in other, non-sexual acts of getting intimate. Hold hands and go out for walks, arrange dinner dates (cliché but works), get physical (without really having sex), exercise together, plan a trip, or whatever gets you going. This will help enhance both your sexual life, and your relationship in general.
Identify your turn ons or consider taking therapy
Turn ons: Identify acts and situations that get you turned on. They can be literally anything. Find them out, and start using them to your advantage for a happier sex life. Therapy: If in the end, nothing works out, seek therapy. Consult a professional therapist, and attend sessions regularly with your partner to cope up with your sexual incompatibility.
