Ask & Tell: Love Letters by Linda Mercury
Note from Jessa: When I was thinking of good contributors to this month of real-life romance, I immediately thought of Linda Mercury. She walks with an air of sexy fun and mystery, and I knew she’d have excellent words to share with us. Take us away, Linda!
I was really thrilled when Jessa Slade asked me to contribute a post to See Jane Publish. After all, I love talking about relationships, and my relationship with The Charming Man is my favorite relationship.
We get a lot of questions on how to create a healthy partnership. Over the years, I’ve written down our ideas and I am thrilled to present my favorite – how to ask for what you want!
When it comes to asking for what you want, the very first thing you need to ask yourself and your partners is: What is currently working in your intimate lives? Acknowledge what you like. Praise what is going well. When we are less than fulfilled, it is easy to focus on what is lacking. Spend a few moments praising each other.
- “You get me so hot when you lick my ear/come up behind me and nuzzle my shoulder/walk around in a towel/wear good undies/__________.”
- “I want to make sure you know that I think you are the sexiest person ever.”
- “I like pleasuring you. It’s the most fun I can think of.”
- Get the drift? Spend a few moments jotting down what you’d like to say to your honey.
These can be verbalized or sent as a love letter.

Here’s a sample love letter where I ask for what I want.
I think you are the foxiest man on the planet and I would love to make a sexy blanket fort with you.
I think we could manage something with cushions, wine, and sweet, shared laughter. And where would this silly good time happen, you ask? How about our front room next Monday night?
I want to kiss, caress, and dream with you.
I adore you,
May you have manygood times with your Beloved!
Oh, and the blanket fort was lovely, too. 🙂
