    Improving sexuality

    If one's sexuality were to be something that could be "improved" upon, how do you think one could go about doing that? Say, for example, that the reasons for the original "poor" sexuality are bad past experiences, hang-ups, general attitude, etc. I'm thinking of this because a great many people have trouble with their spouses or SOs in this area.

    "Improved" in what way. What's your idea of "poor" sexuality? Lack of sex drive? Inability to orgasm? Not enough sex to meet your partners needs?

    I am assuming you are talking about becoming more interested in sex. The entire relationship is important, but isolating it to sex you want the following from both partners:

    1. Honesty
    2. Trust
    3. Willingness to please
    4. Communciating your needs during love making.
    5. Taking direction from your lover so you can do what pleases them.
    6.Willingness to try new things.

    I admit this is pretty abstract. Let's start with lack of sex drive poor (non-positive) attitude toward sexual activity. I know the "standard" approach if a low sex drive becomes a problem is to first see a physician to determine whether there is a medical reason for it. What about the attitude part? A positive outlook on something can go a long way.
