Americans have quite the sexual appetite. Only around 30% of them are celibate or only have sex a few times a year.

But the reality is, despite the high amount of sexual activity, not enough people talk about the subject in a healthy way. But the good news, is you can turn that around.

Wondering where to start? Then you're in the right place. This article will give you some good sex topics for discussion with both partners and friends.

The Elusive Female Orgasm

It's a sad fact, but many women fake orgasms under pressure from their partners. But what people need to realize is that in general, it's much harder for women to climax than it is for men.

There are many parts involved, both internally and externally. You and your partner should have an open discussion about what works (and what doesn't) to get you to that peak.

And most importantly, your partner should have some patience. It might take a long time, but if you work at it, you just might be able to reach orgasm, especially if you feel relaxed and not pressured.


When we watch TV shows and movies, couples seem to tear each other's clothes off and get straight to business. This reinforces the perpetuated misconception that only old "dried-up" ladies need lube.

But the fact is, we need a little assistance in the bedroom sometimes. Whether it's because we're a bit dehydrated or we're having anal sex (where there's no natural lubrication), lube is definitely something to have in any person's arsenal.

So if you've been having trouble with sex, have a discussion about lube and give it a try. It just might instantly improve your sex life!

The Prostate

Many people think that the main erogenous zone for men is the penis, and that's it. But sadly, the prostate can be largely neglected for many men!

What their partners need to realize is that the prostate is a very strong erogenous zone that can add a whole different layer to pleasure and orgasms.

You should explore stimulation from both fingers and sex toys to find what works for you to hit the spot.

Birth Control

This might be a rather unsexy topic, but it's a very necessary one if you want to be protected against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and pregnancy.

Many women opt for birth control pills. Within this category are several types of pills, mainly combination pills or minipills. You can also choose between monophasic or multiphasic pills

Pills aren't your only option for birth control either. There's also the patch, diaphragm, implant, IUD, and of course, the condom.

It might be worth discussing with both your partner and doctor what the right choice is for you.

Use These Sex Topics for Discussion

With these sex topics for discussion, you'll have a starting point for talking about sexuality. Hopefully, this should facilitate some healthy and open conversations with not just your partners, but also your close friends. Everyone deserves to have a healthy sex life!
