A study of human sexuality explains that great sex is less dependant on the physical and more about the ability to let go and enjoy the moment.


Being genuine and true to yourself during sex is the best thing ever. You’re able to do things you love in bed and not what you’ve been made to believe is ‘acceptable’.

Having good communication

Directing and helping the two of you have the best sex is key in a relationship. For you to know how to effectively communicate, first you need to know what you want. A family therapist Ester Boylan says, “The ability to talk about sex is key to creating and maintaining good sexual chemistry.”

Being open to change

It all starts with the commitment to keep exploring your partner’s body and mind. Consider doing things that you’ve always told yourself that you’ll never do. You’ll be surprised by how much you’ll enjoy yourself.


Confidence in a sense that you’re secure and flexible while navigating your way around each other’s bodies. You need to have the ability to give your all and trust that you’ve got something amazing to offer.

Having fun

It’s unexcusable to have bad sex, each time you have sex it needs to be great. Don’t be shy to laugh, try crazy positions and just be care-free. Adventure, combined with steamy moments makes for a great sex life.
