Love, Sex, & Expectations

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, lovebirds. For many, it’s a time to celebrate the connection they share with their partners, a day that often comes with certain expectations – a meaningful date night, the perfect Instagram post, and let’s just be honest… some hot sex. 

Sometimes our expectations cause us to lose sight of what really matters. 

So, are your unrealistic expectations surrounding sexual intimacy causing a disconnect?

Expectation 1: I need to orgasm every time.

In a world flooded with romantic comedies and steamy love scenes, the expectation that every intimate encounter should end in fireworks can be overwhelming. The truth is, orgasms are not the sole measure of a satisfying sexual experience. Every person’s body is unique, and so are their needs.

Valentine’s Day should be a celebration of pleasure and connection, not a checklist of expectations. Remember, communication is key – expressing your desires and boundaries ensures a more fulfilling experience for both partners.

Expectation 2: Sex is easy.

While Hollywood may portray sex as perfect and effortless, the reality can be quite the opposite. (Except if you’re Jacob Elordi, because come on?!? 🛁) Sexual intimacy requires communication, consent, and a genuine understanding of each other’s needs. At Like a Kitten, we advocate for breaking down the stigma surrounding discussions about sex. Open and honest communication about preferences, fantasies, and boundaries creates a safe space for both partners to explore their desires without judgment.

Embrace the process of learning about your partner’s likes and dislikes, and be open to discovering new aspects of your own sexuality. We have a range of products designed to enhance pleasure and encourage open communication between partners, creating a more enjoyable and fulfilling sexual experience.

Expectation 3: My partner knows exactly what I need.

No one is a mind reader, and expecting your partner to instinctively know your every desire can lead to disappointment. At Like A Kitten, we encourage couples to embark on a journey of discovery together. Explore new experiences, try different products, and communicate openly about what brings pleasure and satisfaction.
This Valentine’s Day, let’s challenge the unrealistic expectations that surround love and sex. We believe in celebrating the diversity of relationships and fostering open communication. Embrace the journey of self-discovery and exploration with (or without) your partner, and remember that love, in all its forms, deserves to be celebrated. Happy Valentine’s Day!
