It’s not every time you wait for your partner to make the first move.

Not only has it been claimed that the average male thinks of sex at least once a day, but men have also been known to initiate sex twice as much as women do!
Also, a lot of women do not feel comfortable initiating sex, because of social conditioning that has led them to believe that being the sexual aggressor renders them a ‘slut’ or a ‘whore,’ and for people with such a mindset, to initiate sex is to be subjected to shame and ridicule.
These reasons have somewhat made it ‘natural’ that men should be the ones to always initiate sex and get every happy hour started.
For women in relationships and marriages, though, you can’t afford to think this way.

Letting your man initiate sex all the time, and refusing to take the lead is not good enough. You need to learn to take the bull by the horn. And this is not something to begrudgingly do occasionally or once in a blue moon.
You have to become comfortable enough to do this as many times as possible.
One reason for this is that while men have no qualms making the moves on you for sex, it gets to a stage where they can’t decipher if you really want to do it, or if you are just doing it because they want to do it.
