Communication has always been a major necessity in relationships, and it’s something that is difficult to achieve for some couples. Either they won’t communicate at all, or they won’t communicate about what’s important. But there’s another communication form that falsifies a relationship’s prosperity: exclusively sexual communication.
Sexual communication means either having a connection solely in sex or by only talking about sex. You may find that you and your partner bond incredibly and that your conversations are endless and perfect, but what if that’s only because your conversations mostly concern sex? Just because you’re talking successfully to each other doesn’t mean that you’re actually communicating.
Physical communication is vital in intimate relationships, but it cannot be the only type of expression that you share. Your bedroom connection is undeniable and that may make a relationship float for some amount of time, but eventually it will be revealed that you have no communication between each other. If the most successful part of your relationship is the romps, and if that’s the subject of the only good conversations that you have together, then there’s definitely something missing.
By focusing intensely on the sexuality of your relationship, you miss out on actually getting to know your partner and finding asexual common interests. When there’s nothing to talk about other than sex, it’s a possibility that you actually have nothing in common except each other. And granted, that can make a relationship work, but it seems to be the rarity more than the routine.
Sexual communication is necessary for couples to achieve full intimacy, but the other half of intimacy will of course be lacking or missing entirely. It’s important to have natural communication beyond sexuality otherwise you’re simply prolonging a one-night-stand posing as a real relationship. If you find that your only honest or enjoyable communication is of the sexual nature, then you definitely should try to broaden it. After that, if there’s nothing then it’s likely that your relationship is not as promising as you may think.
There is no doubt that sexual communication promotes a relationship’s growth, but it’ll only take you so far. Without real communication, your relationship will be stunted and will not progress beyond a great sexual connection. Find things in common and discuss, and don’t be afraid to express yourself, whether you’re unhappy or ecstatic—emotional admissions can create the most intimate forms of communication.
