As HSP or sensitive women, we are always looking for ways to feel more connected. In our relationships, we seek deeper connections with our partners. We want to feel seen, heard, and understood. And this craving for connection often extends to our sex lives. If you feel scared or apprehensive about sex, you may want to read this “part 2” post about HSPs and sex.
As an HSP or sensitive woman, you may have noticed that you enjoy sex more than the average person. Because we are so attuned to our senses and feelings, we feel things more deeply. This can be a blessing and a curse, but when it comes to sex, this heightened sensitivity can actually be a good thing.
Sex Can Help Deepen Connections for HSP or Sensitive Women
Finding connections is important to you, as a sensitive or HSP woman. Finding connections with family and friends can be difficult enough, but finding a deep, meaningful connection with a romantic partner can be even harder. However, sex can be a great way to deepen the connection you share with your partner.
You want to find someone who you can connect with on multiple levels. Emotionally, intellectually, and sexually! If you’re not compatible sexually, this can lead to unfulfilled needs. Which no one wants, my dear! Especially since HSP women are known to be more sensitive to the emotions of those around them. That goes for sexual needs too. So, it might not be ideal if you’re with an incompatible partner and you’re an HSP or sensitive woman who enjoys sex.
When having sex with a compatible partner, you’re both learning to trust one another more and getting to know more about each other. Having sex with your partner will allow you to foster this deeper connection. It will also allow you to express love but also feel it, too. Sex is a great way to express love and affection.
What’s Your Love Language?
I’m sure you have at some point been asked what your love language is. It’s almost as frequently asked as “what’s your horoscope?” The five love languages are ways people like to give and receive love.
- Words of Affirmation
- Acts of Service
- Receiving Gifts
- Quality Time
These love languages are important to know because they help you understand how you like to receive love and how your partner likes to receive love. This can be helpful in your relationship because sex can be a great way to communicate love.
For example, if your love language is touch and your partner’s love language is quality time, sex is a great solution to combining both. Your partner will be able to spend quality time with you and you will be able to caress and be caressed by your partner. This way everyone can receive love in the language they speak.
Fulfilling Your Needs as an HSP or Sensitive Woman
Sex can also fulfill your love language as an HSP or sensitive. It does this by giving you the sensations you crave but also intimate, quality time with your partner. By having sex, you will fulfill your needs for love, connection, and physical needs as well.
Making sure your needs are fulfilled is important emotionally, physically, and, obviously, sexually. As an HSP or sensitive woman, the sensations during sex may make it more enjoyable due to your highly sensitive nature. This means that sex can help to make you feel the emotions of your partner but also help you express your own.
However, as HSPs we do notice more subtleties. So, if our partner isn’t in the headspace that can mess with our sexual mojo. Or, if you’re not in the right headspace, it could be an unpleasant experience. This could be an instance where cuddling could come into play. We don’t want you overthinking them lost in thought about groceries or you thinking about dirty laundry when trying to have sex!
