I have found it difficult to bring up the topic of watersports with guys that I have dated in the past. I feel like there is some stigma that goes along with it. Maybe it's just me not being completely comfortable with it. I always seem to overhear conversations about how people can do things like that. People always seem to judge what they don't understand, but I seem to be around when those conversations happen so I feel like I am a closeted watersports lover. Anyone have any helpful input here?
I had similar problem with an ex, initially I would just raise the topic when sexual fetish type conversations came up, I expressed my curiosity with watersports, he didn't respond with any rejection. Eventually i got up the guts/comfort to try it in the shower with him. He didn't seem to mind and was open to it, after that we discussed it much more openly and since I was very new to it in practice we were both basically exploring it together. After actually trying a few things we both knew our comfort level with each other and watersports, it was a gradual process initially but once I knew he was responsive to it and not disgusted by the idea it was much easier to explore. I feel that watersports is very much different in a relationship than with a hook up. Hope this helps.
