How Do You Get Him To Discuss His Fantasies With You?
Olympia returns, to answer the question.
"How do I get my boyfriend to discuss his fantasies? When I am direct, & ask him, he seems to just want to give answers to let me know he is happy with our sex life. But I know there's got to
be at least one hidden in there! Any ideas on how to get him to talk or what to do?"

First things first. Why are you asking? Are you trying
to expand your intimate horizons together and want to
know if he has any thoughts? Or are you trying to
browbeat him into assuring you that the sex between
you outstrips any fantasy he could ever conjure? If
it's the latter, I got nothing. If it's the former,
maybe we could work on some delivery techniques.
If your boyfriend seems reticent about sharing this
information in the light of day, wait till you're in
bed. If he seems uncomfortable telling you about the
Coors twins while you're sucking him off, try bringing
it up on the way to the Dairy Queen.
I always find that a great way to initiate some sort
of what's your pleasure discussion is when a man is
pleasuring me. I lie back, relishing what he's doing
and say something like, "you know what I'm thinking
about?" and then when he asks I let him know that I'm
imagining being whipped/pleasuring two midgets/taking
it up the ass while hanging upside down/insert fantasy
here. This lets him know that it's OK to think about
whatever he wants during sex.
If there's a fantasy you have, share it and ask if
he's ever thought of trying it, but don't make it quid
pro quo like because you just shared a fantasy now
it's his turn.
I suspect that the problem might be the way you're
asking. After all, few men will pass up the
opportunity to tell their women what turns them on.
Perhaps phrasing it like that instead of asking for a
fantasy, which conjures up images of sophisticated
planning, when he might not have actualized his
fantasies as much as you have, would work better.
Sex shouldn't be filled with anxiety and being
repeatedly asked by your partner to share the fantasy
she knows your hiding, does provoke anxiety. Start by
opening up yourself and see what comes of it.
