      One thing I’ve learned is nothing beats good old telephone role play and masturbation. iPhones with FaceTime really lets you see the action on both sides or I’ll take my notebook in the bathroom and give him a strip show and bath he won’t soon forget.

      What do you do when the woman is uncomfortable with the sextin/dirtier talk?

      1. The key is to start slow and to change the dynamic of the current situation . In every relationship there is a certain dynamic, the status quo, the norm of how your relationship is. Everyone and every relationship is different. If you aren't used to sextin or dirty talk then you need to change the dynamic of the relationship in order for them to understand where you're going with everything. To change the dynamic of a relationship you can either be straight up and honest or you can slowly add in different things. Here are two examples:
        Straight Up and Honest
        -Approach your girl with the idea of sextin and dirty talk, explain to her that you want to spice up your relationship and you feel like it will benefit the both of you. If she is uncomfortable it's likely because she has never done anything like it before verbally or through text. So start off by telling her that you think shes sexy, ask her questions like what turns you on, and slowly get more sexual.
        Slowly Add Things In
        -Humans adapt to all sorts of stimulus. Its called habituation. When you are exposed to a certain stimulus or experience you begin to adapt to it and you are no longer uncomfortable and it becomes natural. Capitalilze on this by starting off slow like I said above tell her she is beautiful and ask more questions then statements. Ask her what she likes, ask her about her fantasies, and slowly get more sexual.
        These two things will likely get her to approve sextin and dirty talk and slowly over time become more comfortable with it.
