Can we have sex together?

Answer from our relationship expert:

Engaging in sexual activity requires mutual consent and a shared understanding of boundaries and desires. Before initiating sexual activity with someone, it's essential to have an open and honest conversation about consent, protection, and comfort levels. Both partners should feel comfortable expressing their desires, boundaries, and concerns without pressure or coercion. Communication is key to ensuring a positive and consensual sexual experience for both parties. If there are any doubts or uncertainties, it's best to pause and clarify before proceeding. Remember that consent is ongoing and can be withdrawn at any time, so it's crucial to prioritize mutual respect and understanding throughout the sexual encounter.

It's important to approach sexual activity with respect, sensitivity, and consideration for both your own and your partner's boundaries and desires. Prioritize open and honest communication, and be prepared to listen and respond to your partner's cues and feedback. Take the time to establish mutual consent and agreement before engaging in any sexual activity, and respect each other's autonomy and choices. If there are any doubts or uncertainties, err on the side of caution and prioritize the well-being and comfort of both parties.
