Saying no

Saying no
‘No’ is a simple word, but it’s often hard to say. It’s important to learn how to say no clearly and firmly. Don’t do anything you don’t want to.

If something happens that you don’t enjoy while you’re making love, stop and talk about it. This happens a lot, and it’s always better to say so than to keep quiet and pretend everything’s OK. Dare to say ‘no’ or ‘stop’ so the other person knows you don’t want it.

There are all sorts of situations when you might need to say no. Maybe you realise that you don’t like someone as much as you thought at first. Or maybe you’re not ready to have sex, even though your partner wants to.

But saying no sounds easier than it is. How do you go about it?
