Research shows that a better sex life reduces health concerns and improves your immunity, not to mention it is fun for you and your partner too. Find out how to take sex life from blah to wow!
1. Make a date
There’s nothing unromantic about planning for romance. Schedule a date and jot it down in your calendar, just like you did when you first started dating each other! If you’ve been together for a while, making time for a date will remind you of why you two fell in love in the first place while bringing back memories of how crazy you were about each other! So plan ahead and include romantic activities to get you in the mood, such as a dinner date or a sensuous massage at home.
2. Try something new
Let’s face it: things in the bedroom can become a little boring, especially if you’ve seen all of each other’s tricks. To spice things up, introduce something new! Something as simple as new lingerie can even do the trick.
Love Tip! Spend some time apart to make you excited to see each other a little more. Plan a short getaway with your girlfriend. He’ll definitely show you how much he missed you when you get home.
3. Attitude is key
Low self-esteem can be a major turn-off. The more hang-ups you have about your body, the less chances of you enjoying sex. Be realistic, and besides, he’s probably hot about your body in more ways than you think!
4. Eat right
Eat a heart-healthy diet to improve the blood flow to your body organs, including your sexual organs, to increase desire and function. Opt for fiber, grains, fruits, vegetables and lean sources of dairy and protein.
5. Work it!
Out of the bedroom, we mean. Getting regular physical activity is an easy way to boost your body image and sexual prowess. Make sure you include Kegel exercises to keep your pelvic muscles strong and increase pleasure sensations during sex.
Try this! Sit or lie down. Contract your pelvic floor muscles and hold it for 10 seconds. Relax for 10 seconds. Do it four or five times in a row, and at least three sets of 10 a day.
