Probably not. Most women reach orgasm about 60% of the time with their familiar partner, according to a study in the Journalof Sexual Medicine… whereas guys do about 80% of the time.

Plus, many women don’t climax from penetrative sex alone, so it might be time for you to rethink your strategy. FYI: the clitoris has eight times
the amount of nerve endings than the head of your penis. So, in a nutshell: you need to work out what gets her off to supplement the intercourse that gets you off.

Anatomy aside, you’re also dealing with a head game. Make sure she feels relaxed, secure, sexy and adored.

She says it’s fine when something’s clearly bothering her. Do I give her space or push her to open up?

A bit of both. This is when you need to hone your spidey senses. As a general rule, do or say the opposite of what she says. “Don’t worry about
me/You don’t have to get me anything/I’m fine, nothing’s wrong”… these are generally all “Go straight to jail; do not pass go” tests.

You need to simultaneously give her space and be available when she wants to talk. Try saying, “I can tell something’s
wrong. I’m here if you want to talk about it.”

Then wait for the cold front to blow over – or the storm to roll in.
