Physical attraction is usually what initially draws someone's interest in the opposite, or same sex (whichever your preference may be). It's that attraction that keeps people interested, and the rest follows when considering forming a relationship. Sex is what has been said to keep a happy home.
But does experience play a role? What if your partner's past is more diverse than your own as far as what they've done and how many people they've done it with?
The movie that automatically jumps to mind when I think of such a question is, What's Your Number. Ally Darling, played by Anna Faris, looks back on the men of her past relationships to see if any of them has changed for the better. Her sexual partner count was twenty. I found myself wondering if that's something that many people actually considered.
Sure, there is something to be said when you're dealing with a person with no experience, compared to someone with a vast amount. Simply, it all boils down to one's preference. Some people may rather a person whose experimenting starts with them. Those usually tend to be the people who like to teach and appreciates someone who hasn't had many people in their beds to beat them to the opportunity to do so.
Then, there are those that prefer someone who actually knows what they're doing. What they like and don't like. Even the chance to teach one another a few things that the other might not know.
But does it ever become a burden on the mind, as well as in the bedroom?
Can the amount of sexual partners your significant other has had before you, change your opinion of them, making it hard to push forward?
