“Be able to laugh, or at least don't get insecure when I do.

Don't give up when a position is awkward; talk it through. Transition to something else if it's really failing, but don't give up because of brief fumbling.

How would you feel if I completely avoided giving you oral sex or briefly tossed it in every couple of weeks? Great, I'm glad we're on the same page.

I can tell when you're more concerned with your orgasm than mine. Being a selfish partner is the easiest way to get the lifeless fish result.

If I tell you I'm turned on, I'm turned on. You can refuse to use lube because of your ego but I'm going to opt for not sexing you before I opt to have an irritated vagina.”
