Let’s face it, most of us aren’t gushing over rom-coms or reality TV shows with our partners. As much as we might want to, they probably won’t be interested in watching. And so, we’re left to wonder: How do we watch those TV shows, movies and other content with our partners without them feeling like we’re spying on them? Luckily, it’s easier than you think. Here are some ways to watch intimacy content with your partner without it feeling like you’re watching them like a hawk.
Don’t Be Afraid to Let Your Partner Know What You’re Watching
You don’t have to be super secretive with your partner (or any other person, for that matter). You can be open about what you like to watch and let them know if they’re interested in watching something with you even a sex video. This can go a few ways. If your partner isn’t interested in watching anything, that’s totally okay. That’s their thing. But if they are, it can be a really easy way to incorporate more TV with your partner into your life.
Make a Show Suggestion
When it comes to making a show suggestion, you can do so a few different ways. The first way is to suggest a show you’ve already seen or a show you’re curious about. The second way to suggest a show is to suggest a show your partner has never heard of before. This can be a fun way to spark more conversations about different types of content and really get to know your partner better.
Get Your Partner Involved
If you’re looking for a way to get your partner more involved in your habits, you can also invite them to join in on the conversation. This can include inviting your partner to talk about the show with you, to watch with you, or to participate in a different activity together. You can even try what you are watching like for example a new sex position.
Finally, Be Open to Watching Something Together
Finally, be open to watching something together can be a nice way to open the door to new types of content. But if you’re not sure what to watch, try starting with something simple. This can be a nice way to get involved in your partner’s habits without feeling like you’re taking advantage of them. This can be especially important if your partner isn’t interested in watching or making their own content.
TV is a part of so many people’s lives, and while it can be fun to watch with your partner, it can also be difficult to keep things from feeling too much like “spying” on them. It can be helpful to take these tips into consideration when you’re looking for ways to watch intimacy content with your partner. It can be tempting to try to “watch TV like an expert”—that is, to hide your emotions and pretend you’re not enjoying the content at all. While this might work for some shows, it can feel inaccurate and even awkward for others. Instead, be open about what you enjoy and what you don’t and make sure your partner feels included and welcome in your TV habits.
