Online sex education platform Beducated has shared seven sexual "sins" that people commit in the bedroom. The list comes in response to a recent Decoding Desire survey of nearly 2.000 respondents, which showed that 60 percent of men and women are not satisfied with their sex lives, writes the Daily Star.

It found a number of factors contributing to this widespread dissatisfaction, including a lack of communication between partners, insufficient knowledge about sexual health and satisfaction, and prevalent myths and misconceptions about sexuality.

The sin of silence

According to the data, 95% of respondents expressed a lack of communication - this means not expressing desires, needs and boundaries.

The sin of wanting more

Many people often wish they had more sex. However, research data reveals that more sex does not equal a happier sex life; with one in five long-term couples suffering from libido mismatch. Beducated therefore emphasizes the need to focus on quality rather than quantity.

The sin of routine

The survey found that 50% of participants wanted to try something fresh in the bedroom, experimenting and introducing new techniques to keep things interesting.

The sin of chasing orgasm

According to the findings, two out of three women admitted that they were pretended to have an orgasm so as not to hurt their partner's ego, because prolonging sex until one partner reaches climax can be counterproductive. Bededucated recommends that you forget about the orgasm and focus on the pleasure itself; if you don't feel good at some point during sex, there's no shame in stopping or taking breaks.

The sin of not taking care of yourself

The data shows that 61% of Decoding Desire participants said stress directly affects their sex life, but practicing mental and physical self-care, along with more physical activity and exercise, can increase sexual satisfaction, sex drive and confidence.

The sin of inequality

According to the findings, one in four women have low or no libido – almost twice as many as men. Monitoring your partner's daily stress and making more time to explore intimate moments together can help balance the imbalance.

The sin of not knowing sex education

Data from Decoding Desire found that educated participants were 67% more satisfied with their sex lives than the general average. This shows that sexuality education should be treated as a lifelong learning process.
