I think a healthy sexual relationship is one that you can not be nervous in. Being comfortable with your body and who you are and just comfortable with your partner constitutes a healthy sexual relationship in my opinion.

Someone who respects you and is open to talk about your sexual relationship is definitely vital. I like to think of it as a hierarchy, with respect and trust at the bottom of the pyramid, communication on top of that, and finally willingness to be willing to try new things with their partner. It certainly is a lofty and unrealistic goal to find a partner who has all the same sexual fantasies/desires as you, but if you can find someone who is willing to try new things for you as you do for them while still maintaining respect, trust, and communication than that is a very good prospect for a fulfilling sexual relationship. There's more to it than that, but that is the framework for a relationship like that if you ask me.
