Sex, the most natural thing we could do, is the biggest mystery we all share among us. Sex is not only for reproduction, but it's one of the greatest physical pleasures you can have. It not only gets your juices flowing but helps with the blood pressure regulation, helps with stress management, burn calories, boosts immunity, to list a few among a large number of advantages. But despite all that is good, couples tend to lose the sexual drive, and it can take its toll on a relationship.
So here we are to help you with some tips on how to not let that happen!
Make sure you discuss what you enjoy and not enjoy in bed. It's important that you and your partner enjoy the time you spend in bed together, and for that, discuss what you are willing and unwilling to do, things you'd want to be done to you. Arrive at a consensual consensus, this way there are fewer disappointments and resentments.
Look at sex with a different angle, don't assume the conventional paths. Try new things, think beyond the 'genital in genital' play.
Spend some sexy time under the warm pouring water, or take a long bath together. Embrace each other, make them more confident in their body, because the better they feel in their skin, the more comfortable they would be getting naked in front of you.
Sex is nice, but when it becomes predictive, it suddenly drops from being 'WOW' to just 'meh'. The same choreography over and over again makes things monotonous, and hence makes it boring. Talk to each other, discuss about the things you'd be willing to try.
Sexy texting or 'sexting', can help you bond beyond the physical level. Knowing that your partner thinks of you intimately even when you are separated by a considerable distance, helps strengthen the emotional bond you share.
Share intimacy, not only in the bedroom, but in general. Appreciate the time you spend with each other, and each other's company. Learn to be possessive without making them feel suffocated.
Try aphrodisiacs, experiment with fruits in bed, play with the good old whipped cream. Try something new, the thrill makes the sex much more interesting and fun.
Go out on dates, fancy ones. Don't take their company for granted, work for it. Bring back the days when you worked, because you wanted to win them over.
Try things you wouldn't possibly think of. Lap dances, striptease, pole dancing, nothing is off the charts.
