Why can it be important to talk during sex?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine

When it comes to sex, some women are as silent as a 1920s movie. They fear that they can't tell their men what they want in bed - maybe because they're shy, maybe because they're embarrassed, or maybe because their partner's ego is about as delicate as a silk blouse. But the best thing they can do with their mouths to improve their sex life has nothing to do with the x-rated thoughts crossing their mind right about now; it's talking. Women need to teach, coach, and encourage their men to give them what they want - and how they want it. Believe us, it's more of an ego boost for men to know they're pleasing their women than to not know something was wrong in the first place.
