    Not to give too much detail, but I feel my boyfriend is selfish when it comes to sex and his own physical pleasure.

    He's not THAT bad, its not like 2 minutes and he's done, rolls over and falls asleep. No, he's not like that. But i still wonder if there is anything i can do

    We have a great relationship- very loving, can talk to each other about anything. Outside the bedroom he's very affectionate and cute etc. Says he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. He couldn't be a better boyfriend. I couldn't be without him and we are like best friends. I lost my virginity to him and i'm only his second sexual partner.

    Anyway, to the point- He does care about how I feel, he's tried all kinds of things to make me feel good before. But lately he's just been focussing on himself, I feel. When he's finished he doesn't even try to continue making me feel good (trying not to give too much information here, sorry) he just goes really fast, finishes, then apologises but doesn't do anything about it. Sex is never slow and tender- which is what i kind of need, at least in the early stages, to enjoy it fully.

    What should I say to him without offending or embarrassing him? Sex really isn't very good for me these days. It used to be great cos he used to think about how i felt, i don't feel he does that much any more

    Is he currently stressed for any reason? That could be why he's not very focused on you at the moment.

    But I would just tell him how you feel. Just explain that whilst you still enjoy sex, you're still quite delicate and would like him to be more gentle/tentative to your needs? Explain the things you like etc.

    Thanks i don't think so, nope. And nothing has changed between us, no arguments or anything. Its been a gradual change, over the months we've been together he's gradually got less sensitive to my needs. Maybe its just natural, don't know. But, i'm not settling for it, haha. Yeah i'll talk to him about it thank you

    I think it is natural, when you get to that stage of comfort its easy to get sidetracked My partner got like that at one point too and I had to talk to him about it too. He realised he'd been a bit selfish and changed his bedroom antics :lol: Hopefully the talk goes well!

    Are you confident he isn't stressed/anxious/worried/depressed over anything? Just because in my experience that's the number one cause of bedroom selfishness from an otherwise generous person.

    Hmm, nothing major as far as i'm aware. He works full time, but he's done that for the entire duration of our relationship so nothing has changed there. Our relationship is still strong as well, so no stresses there either. I think he'd tell me if he was really upset/worried about something
