Sex, making the first move, taking the initiative in bed

   

 - Sex, making the first move, taking the initiative in bed
Men often complain that they're always the ones who have to the first move for sex and they'd appreciate us jumping on them (or at least showing a bit of initiative once in a while). So take the plunge and let him know you're up for it. Sometimes a long look and a knowing smile is enough to get the message across...

But at other times we do need to be a bit more explicit. Try whispering: "I want you" covertly in his ear while you're out with friends, sending him a cheeky text message at work, or letting your hands wander all over him while you're watching TV, to make your intentions crystal clear! If you're shy about it, a long, deep, lingering kiss is the first step to the bedroom!    

Our advice: Choose the right moment to be the one to make the first move. If he's just had a run-in with his boss, he's probably not going to be in the mood. If he's glued to the Cup Final, it's a no-no: don't ever try and compete with football. When you sense he's calm, receptive and relaxed, take the opportunity to show him you're happy to make the first move.
