Some people think that “Sex” and “Monogamy” don’t always go together naturally. Couples, who are in monogamous relationships, often get teased that asking them how they’re comfortable or accepting of that fact they'll be having sex with one person for the rest of their lives. Some comments are valid, some funny, and there are some that are completely untrue. Yes, having sex with the same person for a long time can get boring sometimes, but that doesn’t mean that monogamy is responsible for it. If approached with the right attitude and intentions, monogamous sex can be a highly rewarding and fulfilling experience than another kind of arrangements.
Here are a few ways that monogamous sex can improve your sexual relationship with your spouse:
Monogamous sex has emotional benefits
When you’re having sex with a long-term partner, you’re bringing the best qualities of your relationship into the bedroom. If you’re honest and trustworthy in your daily life, that same sense of personal intimacy will be carried over into your sex lives. This type of personal intimacy will have an astounding positive impact on the sex itself.
Monogamous sex comes with physiological benefits
When you’re in a monogamous relationship, having sex (protected or unprotected) is much easier. Monogamous sex has less sexual tension because you don’t have to worry or be anxious about past sex life of your partner.
Monogamous sex is familiar
Let’s face it, sometimes, having sex with the same partner over and over again can get too familiar and things can become less exciting or enjoyable. But, you’re having sex with someone who knows your body inside and out. You don’t have to learn anything new; there is no learning curve. When you initiate sex with someone you’re familiar for a long time, they already know what your sexual preferences are.
Monogamous sex cultivates honesty
Opening up to your partner about sex and what you exactly need isn’t simple. You're in no mood to hurt their feelings or show them they’re doing something unexpected or wrong. Unless, you’re lucky to be in a situation, where you’ve been in a long-term, committed relationship with someone and trust them long enough, you won’t hesitate to tell them, “No, it’s not like that. It’s like this.” However, if you’ve been your sexual preferences hidden from your long-term girlfriend or boyfriend, then yes, there can be some awkwardness if you tell your partner that you like to try some different sexual moves. But, at least, both of you should be comfortable enough telling your partner that you need something else as the two of trust each other. That type of honesty isn’t entirely exclusive to monogamous relationships, but having conversations like these are a lot easier in monogamous relationships.
Monogamous sex is as adventurous as non-monogamous sex
When a couple has been in a committed relationship for a long time, they either stop having sex regularly, or they’re open to trying new things. What most couples in monogamous relationships don’t realize is that it’s the perfect place to explore and evolve sexually. Only a monogamous relationship can provide you with a safe place and trusted spouse to experiment with.
