One of the things about communicating with your partner is that the conversation is never over. Even when you kick something down the road it comes back around in time, even if it’s just about it percolating in your own head.
When you’re not afraid to bring up what you want then wheels get put into motion.
Or you hear something you’ve always wanted to hear, or something you didn’t realize you always wanted to hear, or something you never want to hear again.
You may hear that your partner has interest in exploring the same things as you and feel even closer to them.
You may hear that they have interests that will never click with you, that are red flags and that help you get out faster.
You may hear that their erotic imagination doesn’t exist, which could be a turn on or turn off depending on who you are.
You may hear that they’ve never been tested, so you can keep yourself safe.
You may hear that they were recently tested but would love to do whatever will make you feel comfortable.
They may use sexy phrases like “I’m fully in support of however you’d like to manifest this inclination. And on whatever timeline.”
Talking is… well, it’s just the best.
