Human sexual behavior, human procreation or human sexuality is the way that humans experience and expression of their sexuality through their bodies. Individuals engage in a wide range of sexual activities, ranging from physical acts performed alone to complex sexual activities involving another individual in varying frequencies, for a multitude of reasons. For most people, however, sex is primarily a reproductive activity. Sexual relations may result in pregnancy, procreation or simple pleasure. A growing number of people are also exploring their relationships with other individuals, and beyond the bounds of traditional relationships such as marriages and dating.
The term “sex” encompasses a wide range of experiences beyond the purely reproductive realm. Humans typically experience a range of emotions and mental perceptions during and after sexual encounters. Some individuals continue to experience feelings of pleasure or excitement after sexual contact while others may be distressed by the sexual responses they experienced and are now experiencing. Regardless of whether an individual is experiencing pleasure or discomfort after the sexual encounter, that person is likely to have an intense desire for more sex.
Beyond the purely physiological experience of pleasure, humans need to experience a sense of trust and safety when engaging in sexual relations. In a partnership, partners are often exposed to significant amounts of stress and worry. In order to alleviate some of this tension and stress, partners may experiment with ways to create a more fulfilling sexual experience. By engaging in creative or risky sexual practices, partners can often boost the amount of sex they have and increase the quality of their intimate relationship with each other. When one partner is consistently successful in creating a better sexual experience for the other, it can serve as a motivational factor for the other partner to pursue a similar lifestyle change.
The release of tension and stress created by day-to-day life can lead people to experiment with new positions and techniques for making sex more pleasurable. Sometimes this experimentation leads to orgasmic experiences that feel better than ever. If your partner has experienced orgasmic responses before and wants to repeat the experience, they may find a new position that makes their orgasms feel even better. Or they may find an entirely new technique for making their sexual encounters feel better. It’s important to remember that just because you’ve had multiple orgasms in the past doesn’t necessarily mean that you will have multiple orgasms tomorrow; multiple orgasms are an individual experience.
Another way that an inexperienced partner’s genitals can become accustomed to specific sexual techniques is through oral sex. Through repeated stimulation of the clitoris and g-spot, a woman’s vagina and clitoris can open up to allow vaginal and penis stimulation during oral sex. When this occurs, the walls of the vagina and vulva may constrict in preparation to accommodate the extra moisture being pushed out; this can make sex feel very enjoyable and give your partner a reason to remember the oral sex session the next time they are engaged in vaginal and penis sex.
As you can see, there are many ways that a lack of experience can impact your sex life. If you aren’t experienced with giving and receiving oral sex or with vaginal and penis sex, it’s important to take care of yourself so that you can be more likely to get pregnant. By keeping a balance between the different kinds of sex and receiving as much stimulation as possible, you can enjoy having sex with less stress and less likely to experience pain or unintended pregnancy.
