sexual confidence

It’s hard to find a book or guide on how to be sexually confident, especially over a lifetime of marriage. This is a challenge for so many because we’re just “supposed to figure it out”. The truth is, no one really talks about it. 

Confidence is a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities. Developing confidence takes time and practice, it’s not something that just “happens”. You have to work at it. 

Confidence is also dependent on how you as an individual manage your own vulnerability. So in marriage, a relationship where two people are brought together and now are completely exposed to each other, you can quickly see why challenges may come up.

There’s also this to consider when it comes to confidence…if you don’t feel confident in one area, you tend to not want to participate in that specific area. If you’re not confident when it comes to sex, you might not explore new ways to change things up. 

Because the dynamic between the two of you is a living, breathing connection. Not feeling confident in one area of your life can quickly impact other areas of your life. However, you can grow in this area. When you learn how to support each other and yourself to have sexual confidence.

Staying vigilant when it comes to each of the 6 Pillars of Intimacy can help you both explore and support each other through these seasons where confidence is tough. 

You may find that things that worked in the past, don’t work now. That’s when it’s important to communicate and support each other.  Understanding where you struggle with confidence allows you to create a plan both individually and as a couple.

Knowledge is power and learning what areas need to be strengthened equips the two of you to get on the same team to build your sexual confidence.
