This post was developed via a partnership with BetterHelp.

Most people feel a little insecure from time to time. However, insecurity in the bedroom can result in you being too in your head to enjoy the experience. Or worse, it can result in you avoiding intimacy altogether.

Feeling confident in the bedroom can be incredibly important to having a healthy sex drive and a fulfilling sex life. Whether you’re solo or with a partner, your confidence can significantly impact your sexual experiences.

In this blog, we’re sharing some practical tips to help you boost your confidence and have a more satisfying sex life.

1. Prioritize Self-Care And Body Positivity 

If you struggle with low self-esteem, it can be difficult to feel confident in the bedroom. Getting comfortable with who you are and how you look and learning to embrace your uniqueness is important. Self-care exercises like affirmations and mirror work can be a terrific way to be more comfortable in your own skin.

2. Communicate With Your Partner

Open and honest communication with your partner is key to a satisfying sexual experience. Whether it’s with your long-term spouse or someone you just met, take time to express your desires, boundaries, and preferences. If you and your partner have trouble connecting or if either of you struggles with intimate touch, something like sensate focus therapy can also be incredibly helpful for navigating intimacy.

3. Explore Your Pleasure 

Take time to explore your pleasure through self-exploration and masturbation. Knowing what feels good for you can enhance your confidence and guide your partner to better meet your needs and desires. The more you understand and communicate your needs, the more confident you’ll become in expressing yourself during intimate moments.

4. Educate Yourself About Sexuality 

Many people didn’t get a proper introduction to sexuality. As a result, they can be held back by stigmas and a lack of knowledge. Work on expanding your own knowledge of sexuality, pleasure, and techniques through books, podcasts, and online resources. Educating yourself can help you feel more confident in the bedroom and empowered in your sexual experiences.

5. Practice Relaxation Techniques 

If you have stress and anxiety during sexual activity or around sexual performance, consider practicing mindfulness and relaxation techniques. Deep breathing, meditation, and mindfulness practices can help you stay focused and calm during intimate moments.

6. Set Realistic Expectations

Embrace the fact that nobody’s perfect, and that’s okay! Every single person has insecurities and flaws, so try to set realistic expectations for yourself and your partner. You might be surprised that your partner rarely notices the things you worry most about. Try to focus on pleasure, connection, and mutual satisfaction instead of perfection.

7. Seek Support If Needed 

If your confidence issues are persistent and they’re significantly impacting your sexual wellbeing, consider reaching out to a qualified therapist for support. The same goes for overwhelming anxiety or stress surrounding sexual activities. A therapist can help you develop strategies for building confidence in and out of the bedroom.

Takeaway

By implementing these seven tips, it’s possible to enhance your pleasure and boost your confidence in the bedroom. Remember, feeling confident isn’t about being perfect. Instead, it’s about embracing who you are and enjoying intimate experiences with yourself or your partner.
