Time it right. You might be worried that your partner will judge you, but the truth is that most guys are intrigued and excited to learn that their lover wants to try something new. However, the time and place to start the chat are crucial. You’ll want to wait until he’s relaxed and happy—not when he’s rushing to work, or exhausted, or grumpy. One idea: Plan a romantic evening, share a few glasses of wine, nosh on some chocolate, and let the sexy conversation flow naturally.

Keep things positive. Present your desires in a positive light. Let your partner know that you already find your sex life so exciting that you’re inspired to take it a step even further. Be sure he understands that you’re already sexually satisfied and that nothing is lacking in your relationship.
