T or F: Granted there is mutual consent, to ensure you have a pleasurable sexual experience, it is important to give your partner lots of feedback. (notes) T or F: Porn is not a good tool to use when trying to get new ideas to please your partner because it is aimed at pleasing men’s erotic fantasies rather than mutual pleasure.
