It doesn’t always have to be about fucking… yes, we just said that. Sometimes it’s nice to do other things. Cuddling for instance, creates a lovely safe feeling between partners. Maybe you had a long shit day and aren’t in the mood for sex but want to be close to your partner. Cuddling! On your period and don’t feel like fucking? Cuddling! Don’t want sex? Cuddling!

See cuddling can lead to sex, if you whisper the right things into their ear. Or it just be a nice thing to do while watching a movie or before falling asleep. Fucking is only good if there’s context and meaning behind it. Cuddling helps create trust and closeness to your partner, which will in turn create communication and then you get amazing fucking sex. Which makes us all happy.
