"Start with sexy texts or e-mails. It's often less embarrassing to write something down than it is to say it straight to someone's face – even better if you're not around when he reads it! Start small. Send a short text saying, 'How good was our sex last night? I want more!' Slip a sexy note into his wallet or briefcase saying, 'I can’t stop thinking about having sex with you. I might have to take matters into my own hands tonight because you won't be around.'" –according to

Dirty Talk - Stroke His...Ego

"Men don't like to talk about it, but they are insecure – very insecure. They need constant reassurance that they are pleasing you and making you happy. They need to hear it every single time – that yes you are satisfied. They may not want to admit it, but if you don’t feel good, they don’t feel good. So, it is crucial for them to know: 'Am I pleasing her…or not?' So, if you don't tell him, how is he going to know? The time to tell him, to show him with your words and sounds and actions, is when you are making love." –Duncan Roberts on the How to Talk Dirty Website
