It's easy to feel insecure about sex. What if you don't know what to do? What if it doesn't feel good? What are all these crazy positions that people keep talking about? The good news is that there are some simple things anyone can do to have better sex. All you need is a little information, some self-confidence, and the willingness to try something new sometimes (or always). Let’s discover 5 sex tips you didn’t know you need.

1.  Learn your body

You can’t expect your partner to be a mind reader and know what you like and how you like it. Exploring self-pleasure is key to learn about yourself and what you enjoy. Take what you learn from masturbation and communicate it with your partner. They will be better at pleasing you in the way that you like.

2.  Communicate your wants and needs to your partner

Which brings us to tip #2 - Learn to communicate what you want and what you need from your partner. We hear it often – communication is key in a relationship. Don’t be afraid to tell your partner what you like but also (and most importantly) what you don’t like.

3.  The benefits of using lubrication

You don't need a reason; lube is good to have around. Having a good lubricant can be a lifesaver and can enhance your pleasure. There are a ton of reasons to use lube and they're all good, so don't be shy – go buy some!

4.  Practice touching

Intimate moments don’t always need to end up in sex. Physical intimacy without feeling pressured like touching in the way you and your partner like it can help with your relationship in the future. Learn about how much pressure, from soft to firm, you should use. You can also use sex toys to change it up.
