Negative Body Image And How It Affects Your Sex Life

We live in a beauty-obsessed body image culture that keeps bombarding us with unrealistic expectations in every aspect of our life, with appearance being at the forefront of this phenomenon. Just look at celebrity Snapchats and Instagram accounts and you’ll see the unrealistic standards they set. In addition to driving up the economy by pushing people to purchase expensive beauty products, clothes, and even ‘invest’ in plastic surgery, the unattainable beauty standards drive something else as well – everyone’s self-confidence – down, way down. Unfortunately, our libido isn’t much better off either.

Having a negative body image translates into a fruitless effort to change what’s on the outside in the hopes of feeling better about ourselves. What most of us are forgetting is that self-confidence comes from the inside, so investing in the exterior is a waste of both time and money. What we all need to do is focus on what we’re good at, and the things we love to do. These two ways represent the simplest and most effective methods to work on your self-confidence the right way. Once your self-confidence levels are up, your body image will change, and you’ll be able to relax more during sex, making sexual intercourse much more satisfying for you and your partner.

Thoughts Affect Emotions

The first thing we all need to realize is that we can control how we feel about any situation. This is achieved by learning to control our thoughts. Practically speaking, if your thoughts are negative about a situation, you won’t feel good about it, regardless of whether that situation is positive or negative, and vice versa. Constantly telling yourself that you’re too overweight to be desirable will make you feel undesirable, and make you appear unattractive in return. We are all drawn to confident people, and you can most certainly achieve a high level of self-confidence if you properly work on it, which will instantly make you more attractive, regardless of your appearance. This will do wonders in the bedroom as you’ll finally have the confidence to rock your partner’s world like never before.

High Self-Confidence Translates Into Better Sex

High levels of self-confidence mean you’re comfortable in your own skin, and happy to embrace who you really are. When you reach that stage where you love your body just the way it is, you can start to command pleasure and actually enjoy it, which is how you have much better sex than ever before. You can tell your partner how you want it, which spots to hit, and how to bring you to an orgasm without feeling any shame. On the contrary, if you’re more concerned about your thighs being too big or your boobs being too small, you won’t feel excitement the way it is meant to be felt during sex. Your partner will most certainly notice this, and won’t relax as much either, making your intercourse far less enjoyable than it could be.

But don’t despair. We all have self-confidence issues we need to work on, and the trick is to constantly work on improving ourselves, and the way we perceive things. Sex is so much better when you’re not worrying about the size of your behind or your Buddha belly that you simply must find a way to turn your negative thoughts into positive ones, and finally relax and enjoy your body to the fullest.
