to think my boyfriend is asking too much?

i've been seeing my boyfriend for almost a month now. he's a very nice, decent person and we have a good sex life. I would do almost anything when it comes to sex/fantasies and he would for me. Each night we text each other and usually it gets a bit sexual the texts, and last night he sent me a text saying that he wants me to wear stockings, high heels, red lipstick and would I paint my nails for tonight (i'm going to his house tonight) and spray perfume on myself when we have sex tonight. It's not just sex, he is very affectionate and is a very caring man, but I feel he's asking too much of me, and maybe even trying to change me. I'm thinking that what is wrong with the sex as it is, is it too boring for him, just plain old sex so much that he wants me to dress up and look like a slapper?! Am I over analysing his intentions?

You dont have to do anything that makes you uncomfortable, just say no.

I dont think he's asking too much IF you are happy with it but if you're not tell him.

I regularly do all that, not just for my dp, but for me. I enjoy feeling nice and sexy and seeing him think so too. (I'm not slapper btw). But, it's important he doesn't expect this from you every time you have sex. So, if he's as good a person as you say, he won't mind having normal sex as well.

I think you need to talk to him. A lot of men, and women, like dressing up. Feed's the fantasy.

If you feel like he is trying to change you, then that is a different kettle of fish but something you still need to talk about with him.

You feel this is slapper dressing, he probably just thinks it's sexy. Talk to him - if this is the first step on the road to dogging or if he sulks or gets angry if you say no then by all means dump him. Otherwise, it's up to you. Give it a try. You might like it. Or ask him to do a Colin firth (insert own fantasy here) impression for you and see how he reacts to that.

Mmm, Colin Firth smile I will give it a try. Once can't hurt. He's not pressurising me at all, and I did say I was a little apprehensive, but willing to give anything a try, and he said that if I didn't want to do it, there would be no way he'd ever make me do anything I didn't want to or feel uncomfortable about saying no to him.

No harm in asking if that is what he would enjoy.

But also no harm in saying 'No' if you don't want to/don't feel like it.

He has every right to ask you to do it, you have every right not to do it. Welcome to the wonderful world of compromise. If you can't find one then the relationship will probably peter out.

i think i disagree with all the above. I think that anyone who uses the words 'i want you to...' is suspect. I think there are ways of indicating that you would enjoy something without putting the other person in a position of disappointing you. The way he has gone about this is deeply passive aggressive and he would be on a yellow card with me.
Your gut instinct on this is correct. Listen to it.

Oh dear, OP - oh dear!

turquoisetumble Thu 11-Aug-11 10:15:27

Really Holy? I think in sex talk/texting, that's quite common.
"I want you to tie me up" or "I want you to (insert fantasy)" I don't think that's suspect at all.

It sounds like OP is just feeling uncomfortable about doing something new. Which is fine and she's entitled to feel that way. What he suggested wouldn't be a problem for me occasionally - but would be if he wanted it that way all the time.

OP maybe you could have a chat in a less suggestive way (maybe post coitally or a cosy evening in the pub) about what you both like/fantasies etc. Then you can have time to think about where your boundaries lie and how you can make it work for you - and his suggestions could be less of a surprise.

You've only been seeing each other a month - and 'have a good sex life'. I've had a longer relationship with library books!!!
No wonder you have no idea of his rationale - you hardly know each other.
If you are uncomfortable - talk to him about it. If you can't talk to him / are to shy / find it too awkward - maybe you need to build your emtional intimacy more before continuing with the sexual intimacy.

God I'm geeting old!!!

QuintessentialShadow Thu 11-Aug-11 10:21:13

I think I echo both WkdSM and holysmoley....

DoMeDon Thu 11-Aug-11 10:46:26

I hardly think wearing a bit of slap and some heels is sexual fantasy!?! <jaded>

Any hoo - 1/ don't do anything you don't want to
2/ don't start what you don't want to finish

If you're constantly texting (every night is constantly) and getting sexua,l his mind will race due to you titilating him. What did you expect to happen? You got saucy, he got saucy.

AIBU to be a little disappointed this wasn't a bum sex thread? wink grin

squeakytoy Thu 11-Aug-11 10:48:14

Is it just me, or has there been a thread in AIBU by the OP about every single aspect of this relationship, from day one. grin

JanMorrow Thu 11-Aug-11 10:52:47

Ah bless him, that's a fairly harmless fantasy isn't it? I love dressing up in a bit of red lippy and stockings, it's just a bit of fun for me..

But the most important thing here is, you don't feel comfortable with it, so a simple "i'd rather not" to him will be fine. He sounds like he's a nice bloke, don't read too much into it.

lubeybooby Thu 11-Aug-11 10:55:04

No no no no no no no.

When you've only been seeing someone a month, you should not need to be doing all this. You, alone, should be enough.

Nothing wrong with his fantasy but if you have to be like a performing zoo animal a month in them something is very wrong.

lubeybooby Thu 11-Aug-11 10:55:26

Circus, I meant circus. Not zoo <slaps forehead>

evilkensmum Thu 11-Aug-11 10:56:51

My dh and I had only been together a week before I was asking him to tie me up and spank me! I am lucky in that I found someone who likes to play sexually the same way I do, but until I asked him I didn't know that he did IYSWIM.
If you're not happy don't do it - up to you, but I think you may be reading to much into it. Heels and stockings is quite vanilla really. Obviously if he gets aggressive or starts to pressurise you then you need to look at the relationship as a whole, not just the sex side of things.

fuckityfuckfuckfuck Thu 11-Aug-11 10:58:06

Not even a month?? Have you even been STD checked? I'd have no problem doing this with someone I was in a secure relationship with. But this really isn't that. He must feel like the cat who got the cream.

Mobly Thu 11-Aug-11 11:00:52

Agree with WkdSM. It's no wonder you don't feel entirely comfortable- a month! Do you see each other every night? I don't think that's healthy.

If you don't see him every night then you hardly know the fella really do you?

lazarusb Thu 11-Aug-11 11:10:51

You told him you would try anything once....I would be wary about giving someone carte blanche like that! 'Anything' could get very unpleasant.
Is your relationship based on sex or do you talk to each other too? If you don't want to do it, then don't.
