Sex Is A Language: What Are You Saying?

Try hard never to envy your partner. Envy is sex poison. If you want good sex, learn to be a good companion. A good companion listens. Sex is always changing for any given individual and every couple, and so communication should never end. The good news is the potential to reawaken desire never dies.
