Lifestyle - Share your wildest fantasies

When it comes to sharing your sexual fantasies, even the "closest" couples find it hard to communicate their "naughty acts" with each other.

Not many couples are able to act out their sexual fantasies as they often wonder - How to share their wild thoughts? What would their partner think about them? How would he/she react? Will they comply or not? Such questions and many others flood the minds of many sexually active adults who want to explore their wildest fantasies, reports Fox News . While sharing lewd, obscene, or sensuous scenes with your partner can pose to be a big problem, it also has an upside - not only can you divulge your sexual desires but could even get a sneak peek into your lover's fantasies as well. So if you want to spice things up by sharing it all, sex and relationship expert Dr. Yvonne Kristin Fulbright's guide will prove a saviour for you. And she says that before taking the plunge and sharing, you should first ask yourself the following questions:

1. What's my motivation? Why do you want to share this fantasy? What turns you on about sharing? Do you hope the sharing can be a form of foreplay or something more? Are you hoping that your fantasy will be fulfilled? Will it be advantageous to your relationship?

2. Will sharing diffuse my own pleasures? Many lovers like to have a few tricks up their sleeves in bed and their private fantasies are often what makes or breaks the sexual moment. Whether it’s getting through a sex act or working your way to orgasm, will sharing take away from how your fantasy benefits you now? Will you be able to enjoy having the cat out of the bag?

3. Am I in the right kind of relationship for sharing? Not every relationship can weather such intimate sharing. You need to be in a secure, trusting relationship. Your sexual union should be able to provide you with the support and safety needed to get over any nervousness and anxiety and to field any reactions. Lovers need to make each other feel accepted and emotionally safe. This includes being able to refuse a request to act out a fantasy without putting the other down.

4. Can my partner handle my fantasies? Some lovers can't handle hearing about certain sex acts, especially if they involve "who" you're fantasising about. Partners who are sex negative or uncomfortable with sexual intimacy in general are not going to be the best candidates for such sharing. So consider what your lover may be open to and which types of fantasies may cause more harm than good.

5. Am I ready to hear my partner's fantasies? Lovers tend to expect reciprocity when sharing fantasies. It's usually not a one-way conversation, so you have to consider how you might react to your partner's fantasies. Can you go there? How can you provide the same safety you’re hoping for? After the self-questioning comes the sharing part, so think long and hard about when to open up. And don't expose a fantasy after a hot romp, for it may not be received as well as one meant to arouse desire. Let your partner know that you want to share something and explain your reasons for wanting to share. Finally, remind your lover that your relationship means more than any fantasy.
