Cupid’s Advice:

As terribly awkward as it is to dig up your most embarrassing intimate stories, chances are you won’t be doing it on television like these guys–so what do you really have to lose? Not being honest with a potential partner will most likely lead to another embarrassing story, so it’s important to remember that honesty is the best policy:

1. Right from the start: The best way to open up and be honest with a potential partner is to establish open conversation from the beginning. Before things get to serious, or too steamy, talk about your sexual histories and desires.

2. Lead with a joke: Conversations about intimacy with a potential partner are no laughing matter, but they’re also not strictly business. Joke around to break the ice and in the end, the truth will come out. If you have a positive and lighthearted take on the situation, your potential partner won’t fell threaten or judged and the conversation will flow.

3. Make it about them: If you have a feeling that an open conversation about intimacy isn’t going to go over well with your potential partner, make the conversation about them. Instead of sounding nosy or accusatory, just tell them that you need to know some things in order for you to make the experience as good as it can be for them.
