In the ‘battle of the sexes’ love becomes a competition and the death of true partnership.
In the age of alternative relationships, independent women and sensitive men, we are moving into a place where it’s ok to have our own unique balance of masculine and feminine energy and style of relating. More people are becoming aware that they have both male and female energies within, each coming with it’s own unique set of strengths and desires that make up a functional whole. Dating and relationship coaching, relationship dynamics, and psychology being readily available has begun teaching people they no longer need to see themselves as pieces looking for their other half.
Let’s stop the war and give each other what we need. Let us first realize what we personally need and learn to give it to ourselves. Then we are available to receive what we want from a partner. It’s a movement I’m calling the ‘cooperation of the sexes’. In the spirit of cooperation let’s talk about relationship dynamics and differences.
Want please a woman?
Let her know she’s sexy AND that she is beautiful. Feminine energy wants to be noticed both inside the bedroom and outside. It likes to feel beautiful, experience pleasure and to be noticed by the masculine. As a busy man it’s easy to get so caught up in achievement that you forget to appreciate the woman you’re with, and without realizing it you can easily add the insecurity about her own beauty that she may already be placing on herself.
If you feel like your lady is feeling down on herself…
Are you putting conscious attention on appreciating her?
Are you taking a moment to notice what kinds of things make her feel sexy and what kinds of things make her feel loved?
If you don’t know… ASK!
Instead of saying “Why are you boring in the bedroom?”, say “What makes you feel sexy?”
If a woman doesn’t feel special in her relationship and doesn’t know how to communicate that effectively, she looks elsewhere to fill that need. This doesn’t necessarily mean cheating but it can lead to that. Many times it just means getting attention. It can also lead to shutting down sexually or withholding sex. If she doesn’t learn to feel special and beautiful in herself, no man will ever be able to provide this for her and no amount of adoration will be enough. Our culture perpetuates this insecurity with celebrity culture, TV, media and beauty products. It’s time for men and women to come together to dismantle the ‘beauty validation shadow’ that has been created, so that the feminine can reclaim it’s divine essence which is true & innate beauty.
Want to please a man?
Tell him he’s the man! Honor his man hood. Male energy wants to feel approved of and useful. It likes action and to be of service to the feminine. Men just want to know what to do to make you happy so they can go do just that. As a highly capable modern woman it’s easy to unintentionally emasculate a man by being so self-sufficient that he feels unimportant and unnecessary in your life and looks for ways to be of service to the feminine elsewhere. This makes a woman angry… and the vicious cycle creating the battle of the sexes begins.
If your man’s attention is waning…
Instead of getting mad and pulling away sexually, ask some questions.
How else can you support him in feeling like your man in the bedroom and in life?
Maybe you could ask him about what makes him feel like the man.
Are you receiving his attempts to honor you?
Underneath it all most men cheat because they are trying to find someone who thinks they are the man. Somewhere their presence matters. For many men they don’t feel useful to THEMSELVES so they keep looking for their value in other women, never feeling satisfied. When he doubts his masculine worth, many times he withholds love. Ladies, you can help by letting him know he’s valuable and respected, allowing him to carry the suitcase, drive the car, fix the computer, or whatever his way of serving may be. Most of all men love when you ask them for help and trust them with your vulnerability.
