Don’t Let Body Insecurity Destroy Your Sex Life


Is it possible that men can tell when we’re insecure naked? Are they mind readers (hope not)? How can they tell when we’re nervous about our bodies?According to dating and relationship coach David Wygant, girls with body image issues (aka ALL OF US) are destroying all the intimate moments in our lives because partners can sense the distress and anxieties over certain areas or aspects of our bodies, which in turn makes them feel as if they’re doing something wrong. Although this seems like a really elementary principle, Wygant spells out the problem really nicely for women: we simply need to start loving our bodies.

We can all go to the gym and work on our problem areas, which Wygant says is great, but he also states that it is important to have confidence in yourself all the time because it is what attracts people to you as a person, and that amplifies your beauty. I think this is a message that a lot of young women should not only be hearing, but actually listening to. No one’s body is perfect, not all of us can appear to be airbrushed and manicured to perfection like the women in print publications, so embrace your natural beauty!

As Wygant says, “After all, if he’s gotten that far with you, he’s attracted to you.”
