Have you ever felt ready to get it on with your partner, but your body isn’t cooperating?
Or have you felt yourself getting physically aroused, but at the time when you aren’t even remotely ready to be intimate?
This mismatch between your head and your body is called “arousal non-concordance,” and it is something many women can relate to.
For those of us who hear this and say “yep, that sounds familiar,” the important thing to keep in mind – and to communicate with your partner – is that this is normal and doesn’t mean you’re lacking in interest or eagerness. Sometimes, our bodies just don’t respond as quickly as our head.
So, if this is happening, what can you do? If you’re experiencing not enough physical readiness, a great solution is to use a personal lubricant to mimic your body’s natural response. Another must-try for women experiencing arousal non-concordance is to extend foreplay activities between you and your partner. The more stimulation the better. Both of these will help get your body’s pleasure-receptors engaged and make things run more smoothly during intercourse.
