[LOVERS’ CORNER] 7 things to avoid during intimate bedroom moments


Moments of intimate affairs in the bedroom can be one to look up to especially between lovers trying it out for the first time. The expectation of how great the moment will be and what to expect can make lovers high on anxiety.

While this ‘eagerness’ is normal between the lovebirds, however, a moment of bedroom miscalculation can kill both the anxiety and urge to ‘get down to business.’

NewsClick Nigeria spotlights seven of the don’ts of bedroom intimacy between lovers. Read on!

  • Lack of Communication:

   Open and honest communication is essential. Avoid assuming your partner’s desires and boundaries. Always check in and ensure both of you are comfortable and on the same page.


  • Ignoring Consent:

   Consent is non-negotiable. Always ensure that your partner is comfortable and willing to participate in any activity. Never pressure or coerce them into anything they are not comfortable with.

  • Focusing Solely on Yourself:

   Intimacy is a mutual experience. Pay attention to your partner’s needs and desires. Ignoring their pleasure or focusing only on your own satisfaction can create an unbalanced and unsatisfying experience.

  • Being Critical or Negative:

   Avoid negative comments about your partner’s body or performance. This can lead to feelings of insecurity and discomfort. Positive reinforcement and encouragement help build a more fulfilling and supportive atmosphere.

  • Ignoring Hygiene:

   Personal hygiene is important. Poor hygiene can be a major turn-off and impact the overall experience. Ensure you are clean and fresh, as this shows respect for your partner and the moment you are sharing.

  • Being Distracted:

   Stay present in the moment. Avoid distractions like checking your phone or thinking about unrelated matters. Being fully engaged shows your partner that you value and appreciate the time together.

  • Skipping Foreplay:

   Foreplay is an important part of intimacy for many people. It helps build connection, arousal, and anticipation. Rushing through or skipping it altogether can make the experience less enjoyable.

By avoiding these pitfalls, you can create a more positive, respectful, and enjoyable experience for both you and your partner.
