Moaning is a natural and instinctive form of feedback during sexual intimacy. It can signal pleasure, excitement, and arousal, and can help create a deeper sense of connection between partners. Many people, however, feel self-conscious about moaning or don't know how to incorporate it into their sex lives.
In this post, we'll explore the art of moaning and how feedback during intimacy can enhance your sexual experiences.
Benefits of Moaning
Moaning is a powerful form of nonverbal feedback that can enhance sex. Here are just a few benefits of moaning:
It can signal to your partner that you're enjoying the experience and create a deeper sense of connection.
Orchestrated properly, it can direct your partner to continue behaviors that make you feel good.
It can help you relax and let go of any inhibitions or self-consciousness you may be feeling.
It can increase your arousal, keep you in the moment, and intensify your orgasm. ooOOYESSss!!
How to Moan
While moaning may come naturally to some, others may need to practice or experiment to find what feels comfortable and natural. Here are a few tips for incorporating moaning into your sexual experiences:
Practice on your own: If you find moaning embarrassing, practice solo, you will be surprised how good it makes you feel to let it all go!
Start small: Start with quiet or subtle sounds and gradually work your way up to louder, more intense moans and groans.
Focus on your breath: Moaning is often a byproduct of deep breathing. Try letting go of any tension or anxiety and play using guttural sounds that emanate from deep places in your gut, chest, and throat.
Use your voice: Moaning, groaning, and "dirty talk" can be powerful forms of feedback that can direct and enhance pleasure and help you get what you want.
Receiving and Responding to Moans
Never has an Orchid been so Sexy. While 40 Days and 40 Nights is essentially a film about male pleasure, Shannyn Sossamon in this famous scene shows how you can use moaning to communicate what you are enjoying and direct your partner to help you find that Orgasm.
To use moaning effectively it's important for both partners to be receptive and responsive to each other's sounds. Here are a few tips for receiving and responding to moans of pleasure:
Moaning is contagious: The more you do it the easier it will be for your partner to join in the dance, especially if they are shy and new to non-verbal communication.
Direct with Sounds: Use sound to encourage and direct your partner to do what pleases you and teach how it is done by doing the same for them.
Be Mindful: Pay attention to your partner, and encourage and react positively to their sounds of pleasure. Allow them to guide you and react to what they're enjoying. If you listen closely, this non-verbal communication can direct what is wanted or not wanted without the complication of words.
Respond in kind: Use sounds and even "dirty talk" to communicate what pleases you. Chances are very good this direction will be appreciated.
Worried about waking the kids, dogs, and neighbors? Moaning does not have to be loud to be good. Subtle sounds and gestures are great ways to move sex play along in a dance that works for you.
Want to raise the roof? Plan a date night where you are absolutely alone and can raise the roof with your moans and groans.
Read the room: If your moans are waking the neighbors and pulling your partner out of the moment try lowing your tone while maintaining an orgasmic sound.
Practice: The more you practice the better this non-verbal dance can become while making it easier to express your needs through non-verbal and verbal cues.
Don't be afraid to ask: If you're not sure what your partner's moans or sounds mean, don't be afraid to ask for clarification while letting your partner know that these non-verbal cues turn you on. This can be a great way to deepen your communication and enhance your sexual experience.
Incorporating moaning and other forms of feedback into your sexual experiences can be a powerful way to enhance your connection with your partner and deepen your intimacy. By listening to your partner's sounds and responding in kind, you can create a more fulfilling and satisfying sexual experience for both of you.
