My boyfriend and I are very close and have great sex. He is as attentive to my needs as I am to his. We communicate openly about what we would like in bed and what we don't like. However, there is one thing that kind of bothers me each time we are about to have sex. I suppose that I have a pretty high sex drive, and perhaps even higher than his, but each time we have sex, I am always the one who initiates it. I start the kissing, touching, etc. I climb on top of him and do most of the work at first. But I would so love it if he could initiate sex more often, like kissing me and touching me to get me in the mood. I have a feeling that it's because he's worried about being a gentleman in bed and doesn't want to make me feel uncomfortable, so he's careful about how he touches me. But sometimes a woman just wants to be caressed and feel wanted! When we are having sex, he also doesn't use his hands enough, like squeezing and caressing me. For example, if I'm on top, I would love if he caressed my breasts more often or squeezed my thighs to make feel like he wants me passionately. Instead, he sits back and just watches, which is fine too, but I would love if his hands could be involved more! I have dropped more than a couple of hints to try to get him to take the initiative in bed. ("You can definitely make the first move and start something if you're in the mood, because you know I want you as much as you want me, right?") Moreover, he knows that I have a high sex drive. I have tried to sit back and see if he would take the initiative, but usually it just ends up being either I can't take it anymore and I need to initiate something or we just don't end up having sex for the night. How can I let him know that I WANT him to touch and squeeze me more often in bed and to initiate things without making him feel bad? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
