Pillow Talk: Listen to your Partner

As with really seeing a partner or looking at the world with them, hearing can be an extremely powerful sense to explore with your partner.

The rich sounds of your man's voice or the sweet tones of your girlfriend's laugh: something almost physical happens when your partner has that something-something in his voice. Whispering can be calming or very, very exciting. Just being close to the ear can create a kind of electricity for some people -- not to mention the breathing or the nibbling.

I like hearing the sounds that aren't words: the muttering, the humming or whistling, the mumbling. Try noticing all the different sounds your partner makes and when they show up. Notice as many kinds of tones and emotions, too, when your partner is talking about something important.

Make sure to verbalize your feelings, too. Let your partner know what pleases you and matters to you. If you're comfortable, make more of an effort to communicate your desire with little sounds, which can be very reassuring to our partners. Practice whispering more with each other, which will keep you nearer, too.

Stay tuned next week for more about touch, taste, and smell.

This was the perfect post for me to see today. My boyfriend and I are under a lot of stress at the moment, and it's very easy to lose sight of him in the midst of everything else. Thank you for this gentle reminder of the little things I should be hooking into daily.
