Do men wish women were initiating sex more often? 

Rumor is that men are getting a little tired of always initiating sex. In fact, this isn’t just a rumor. Studies show that men initiate twice as many times as women.

If you find this to be true in your relationship, perhaps it is time to initiate sex, but how do we make the first move with our spouses?

Initiating Sex: Do Men (Always) Have to Make the First Move

How Do Men Feel About Women Initiating Sex?

Men love to see you take charge in the bedroom. In fact, one of the top male sexual fantasies is seeing their partner turn into a tigress in bed.

Men generally don’t mind making the first move, especially when it leads to intimacy.

However, they wouldn’t mind if you initiated sex every once in a while. When men want sex their signals are pretty obvious – if you get my drift, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, let’s go to the bedroom. 

How to Make the First Move?

When it comes to making the first move, women are much more subtle. We might hug, kiss, or cuddle, but you leave the sexual advances up to your man.

So why don’t you initiate sex?

Studies have found women don’t usually initiate sex, quite simply because they don’t have to. Most women know that their husbands will initiate sex every night of the week. Plus some women feel like they are too busy for sex

The problem with letting our spouses always initiating sex is that they don’t know when we actually want to have sex! 

He might even think that you are only being intimate because you feel like you “have to”

 A common myth is that men are always horny and therefore ready for sex.

Feeling Rejected, and Shy About Sex

Initiating Sex: Do Men (Always) Have to Make the First Move?

Some women don’t initiate sex because they fear being rejected or are a little bit shy about initiating sex. 

Did you know that men refuse sex with their partners at the same rate as females?

Rejection is hard for either gender.

Once a woman is rejected when she tries to initiate sex she might be a little slow to do it again. We have to remember that some days our partners just aren’t into it, just like we aren’t, and that is okay!

Try again later or the next day. I mean honestly, there is nothing more invigorating to a guy than a woman who initiates sex with your husband.

We always here that communication is key when it comes to sex, but sometimes we find it hard to communicate about this topic with our spouse. 

Believe it or not, our husbands want us to tell them what arouses them. And I am sure the same goes for you too, you want your husband to tell you what he would like.
