In fact, research has shown that the way couples have sex plays a huge role in their relationship. “The most important part of foreplay is communication, not how good you are at having sex,” sexologist Dr Lucy Bowtell says. “Sexual pleasure happens in the brain. “During lovemaking we’re all engaged in a conversation, communicating our desires and fantasies to one another. “People often focus on the mechanics of sex but the best sex is the sex that’s the most loving, the sex that’s the most intimate. “People often think of a sexual encounter as just a sexual act. Sex isn’t a sexual act, sex is a sexual conversation.” It’s true that some of the best sex experiences have the most effort put into them. But here, we’ll tell you what to do in the bedroom to have the most satisfying and rewarding sex you can. Photo: Shutterstock 1.
