Want your partner to do all the work?

If is unfair to expect all the moves from your partner. A little cooperation from both the partner increases intimacy and takes the whole experience to another level.  Encourage your partner and he/she will please you even more. And, who knows they'll make those moves that will bowl you over.


Do you make extra effort to please your partner?

If no, then start doing it now. By being unenthusiastic in pleasing your partner, you can hurt his/her feelings. Don’t make your partner feel that you are a self-obsessed bed buddy.
