5. “I Hope I’m Competent”
In today’s hookup culture, we’re constantly compared to previous sexual partners. When everyone you sleep with has slept with someone else, you are bound to be weighed against experience. So when a girl goes down on you, she will wonder if (and hope that) she is doing a good job. This is especially true in an era of online adult content, where anyone who doesn’t have hardcore proclivities risks being seen as prudish and sexually unsatisfying. Even if you’re sleeping with the most self-assured person on earth, a little bit of guidance (or, if you’re lucky, earnest enthusiasm) is always comforting.
