When it comes to sex, keeping an open mind can actually do you a hell of a lot of good. It’ll help you to spice things up and try new things in the bedroom. The worst that happens? You don’t enjoy it. The best? You find something new you love.

Can an open mind really save your sex life? We take a look below, as well as the ways you can open your mind, right here on the Escort Ireland blog.

When your sex life dies

Most of us will experience the death of our sex life at some point. It might be that we are in a relationship and have gone through the honeymoon period, only to find that we aren’t getting as much sex as we used it.

This isn’t the only reason for a death in your sex life. You might also find that you are simply too stressed for sex, or that your busy work schedule means you have no time or energy by the time you get home.

It leaves us feeling awful when this happens. We don’t mean for it to, and many of us will try to fight it in any way that we can, but one of the most common solutions we seek is a way to spice up our sex life. We need something exciting to inject into our bedroom antics in order to make things better again.

What does ‘open minded’ mean?

For a lot of people we will believe that we are open minded, but we might not have quite as open a mind as we think. In terms of sex, often it means that we are seeking someone who is not into plain vanilla. They usually like to kink things up in some way… or that they are at least willing to try it.

No, having an open mind does not mean you are a hardcore dominatrix. It simply means that, if someone says “would you like to try this?”, you’d be more like to say “sure”, “why not” or “I’ll think about it.

Basically, those who are open minded are at least willing to talk and discuss different things in the bedroom. If it is out of their comfort zone they may still consider it. They might not necessarily go through with it, but they will at least talk to their partner to see if they can come to a compromise.

An open mind and sex

Keeping an open mind when it comes to sex is a fantastic idea. It means that you will be much better prepared to at least discuss new and kinky things with your partner, even if you ultimately decide that it isn’t for you. That isn’t to say there is anything wrong with vanilla sex. It can still be fun and incredibly exciting. However, if we don’t try new things, your sex life can turn stale. Trying new things can be anything from hot sex acts to new positions.

It actually turns out that having an open mind can lead to a happier sex life. A reader study conducted by Esquire.com discovered that “part of achieving sexual satisfaction isn’t so much what you do, but how you think”.

In other words, it isn’t what you do. If you have an open mind, partner feels more able to talk to you about different things in the bedroom. This can help you figure out the best way to change things to keep you both happy. It’s worth a shot, right?

Open minded does not mean pushover

While it is very important to keep an open mind about sex, this doesn’t mean you have to become a pushover. Simply being willing to talk about anything in the bedroom can be enough to make the difference, but you’ll still know the things that do and do not interest you.

If something is a hard limit for you, you don’t have to try it. Simply explain to your partner why you aren’t interested in trying it. This will help them to understand and make things clear between you.
