That was liberating, thank you Tracey!
I faked it once, a long time back, with somebody I wasn’t together with for more than a few months. Strangely, it was midway thru our first night, and only that one time. Something suddenly felt off and I decided to fake it before I lost it. A few days later she asked me about it but I still didn’t feel enough trust with her to admit it.
With my current partner, we are both sensitive to the other’s mood as well as our own, ask about it and if we are not both into it let it wait for next time.
