So I've recently gotten sexual with a new partner (and we're both up to date on screenings!) and he has some odd quirks that I have some questions about.
I consider myself to be very sexually educated. He recently revealed to me that when he masturbates, he manipulates some kind of vein (he was very vague) to keep him from ejaculating. I'm worried that this is bad for his health. Can anyone shed any light on the issue?
Also, he's very embarrassed talking about sex, even during sex, and I'm not. I tend to be very bold and I want to make sure that I'm not making him uncomfortable with my frankness. Any tips?
In terms of his feeling unable to talk comfortably about sex, have you considered that maybe it's better if you slow things down a lot so he can develop that comfort first?
I have no idea what he's doing with a vein on his penis, but if it doesn't hurt when he does it, chances are it's nothing to lose sleep over.
