An age-old question we get asked a lot is, "so, what do women really want in bed?". The answer isn't as complicated as you'd think. Read on.
You’ve been dating for a little bit and crossed the much talked about 'first' and 'second base'. You’re both ready to take it to the next level. But sometimes it’s hard to gauge what your partner might expect in bed. If you haven’t broached the all-important bedroom territory just yet, there’s no hurry. But if you think you’re ready, then read on to find out what you should keep in mind before going all-the-way.
Side-note: We’re all human beings, and each of us are different. All of us let our guards down while getting intimate. So these pointers don’t just apply to things women want in bed, but to all of us who are looking for sexy, consensual, happy, and safe experiences in bed.

The 3 C’s
We like to think of them as the Holy Grail of Sex: Consent, Comfort, and Communication.
Communication is sexy AF. Tell your lover what you like in bed and listen to what they have to say. Be open to communicating about what you’d like to try and what not. Always ask for consent. Make them feel comfortable and loved. Tread lightly and you’re sure to have a ball. Even after doing all the research, you can’t know all the things women love in bed. Make sure you talk to your partner about where they stand and what they want. After all, they are the experts of their own bodies.
Foreplay Is Coreplay
While some of you may think sex is only about penetration and there is only one way to pleasure your partner, that is certainly not the case. Everything adds up. Little things like sparking a scented candle and playing some mood music really set the stage for a lovely evening. The more relaxed your partner is, the more fun you’re bound to have. Make sure you spend a good amount of time giving attention to all their sweet spots. Foreplay is on the top of the list of the things women love in bed, so why hold back?

Surprise bae to go all the way
Surprise your partner with something that they wouldn’t expect but you know they would love. There’s a laundry list of things you could do but our top recommendation would be to give them a sensual massage with a relaxing massage oil. Feeling connected to each other’s body, and exploring the sensation of touch with a little help from Glow Relaxing will definitely set the mood for the night. Complete this trinity with a water-based lube, and you’ve got all the bases covered for a slip & slide you'll never forget.
As you reach the final stage of this sensual journey, don’t forget that safety, comfort and consent go a long way. It’s totally okay to be nervous. All people are the same when it comes to certain universal truths around being intimate. The things women want in bed are (more or less) the same as men. All of us want to feel appreciated, respected, wanted and desired. Make sure to be present in the moment with your partner, and don’t forget delayed gratification FTW.
