Let’s explore the topic of Yes, No, and Maybe as it pertains to sexual experiences amongst couples. Some experience a need to perform because my partner enjoys it or out of fear my partner might leave me if I do not. Are individuals selfless because they try a sexual act they initially rejected? It may be time to talk with your significant other about the meaning behind the Yes, No, and Maybe.
Sex should ALWAYS be consensual. To this one says “yes” and to that one says “no.” And therein lies the grey. Negotiation. Are you willing to consider something that you may have previously been unwilling to consider? Have an honest discussion of what parts of the sexual act you are comfortable with or are even considering and which are deal-breakers. What is the meaning for you in that particular experience?
Loving, mutually satisfying relationships are what makes happy couples. In the DFW area there is a sex therapist, Stefani Threadgill, that you and your partner should consult. She will meet you both where you are and can facilitate the conversation that may help you to discover a satisfying sexual relationship. Give her a call today and make an appointment at (469) 666-0461.

For some it is just another Sunday, but for many of you February 14th is a great way to strengthen the bond that you have with your partner. Valentine’s Day can be a special opportunity to ignite a new romance or spice up a committed relationship. With that in mind here are 5 ideas that you can try out on that special person in your life.
1. Declare your love through attention to detail. The typical Valentine’s Day fare may not be your lover’s aphrodisiac.
2. Be curious. There is still much to be discovered about your partner, in and out of the bedroom.
3. Create your own love poem. You don’t have to be Neruda to leave an impression.
4. Move beyond your comfort zone. Desire loves novelty. Discover a new favorite something together.
5. Find the grey…and not only the 50 shades. Between yes and no is maybe. Relationships thrive that practice negotiation and compromise.
If and when the time comes that you require excellent couples therapy there is somewhere to turn in the Dallas area. That person is Stefani Threadgill. Stefani is a sex therapist who is committed to helping couples discover their best sexual selves. If you are seeking a comfortable setting to talk about any subject that needs discussing give Stefani a call today at (469) 666-0461.
