Is your sex life not as thrilling as it used to be anymore? Do you feel like you’re not driven to enjoy a good time in the sack of late? If you answered yes to these questions, here are 8 simple tips that will help you spice up your sex life and get you to want sex again.
8 Tips To Help You Want Sex Again
1. Exercise Before Sex
Exercising, in general, pumps up your body and gets you going. Doing about 35–40 minutes of moderate exercise increases your energy by improving blood circulation and nervous system functioning. So, take advantage of this and exercise for a little while before you sleep. It’ll surely increase your energy and make you want to have sex.
2. Meet Your Partner Halfway
While it’s perfectly okay to not be in the mood when you’ve had a long day, saying no to your partner when he/she wants to get busy is bound to upset him/her. Meet your partner halfway instead. Try something a little less exhausting but satisfying like oral sex. This way you’re able to enjoy sex – albeit in other forms – even when you’re exhausted and, at the same time, don’t end up tiring yourself out further.
3. Try New Techniques And Positions
After you’ve had sex a few times, you get the hang of what works and what doesn’t with all you’ve tried. Break out of the monotony by trying something new. Look stuff up, read about things you can do to spice up your sex life, and try them. You could
4. Lubricate For Ease
If you’re a woman who tends to get dry quickly down there, using lube can make your life simpler. Lubricants coat the vagina and make sex a less painful but enjoyable affair. This also helps women who have just given birth a great deal because they tend to have lower estrogen levels, which causes their vaginal walls to dry out and make sex painful.
5. Masturbate Often
It’s a known fact that women have a lower tendency to orgasm than men during penetrative sex. This is because penetrative sex isn’t the
6. Make Time For Sex
Hectic schedules and a stressful work life are the order of the day. So, it’s up to you to decide what to prioritize. If you say you don’t have time for sex, you probably aren’t making time for it because you aren’t prioritizing it over other less important things. Plan a romantic date with your partner every now and then and indulge in a
7. Communicate With Words When You’re Upset
More often than not, couples tend not to communicate that they’re angry or upset with one another. This is probably one of the worst things you can do if your sex life hasn’t been too good of late. Speak your mind when you need to. While the idea of your partner reading your mind can seem romantic, don’t have unrealistic expectations of expecting him/her to just know when you’re angry. Your partner is unlikely to know you’re upset if you’re passive aggressive about it and don’t explicitly tell him/her.
8. Discuss Your Sex Life
This is a crucial part of a healthy sex life. And more often than not, couples fail to do it. Talk to your partner about what works for you and what doesn’t. Likewise, allow him/her to express his/her thoughts about what he/she prefers. It’s also important that you do this at the right place and time. Don’t start talking about your sex life when you’re getting down to doing the act. Also, no one’s enjoys criticism so it’s crucial to talk about these things in a way that shows that you’re expressing your feelings rather than giving feedback.
If none of these tips help and you continue to have problems in your sex life, it’s a good idea to see your doctor. This will help you rule out any serious problems that might be causing a low sex drive, painful sex, or the inability to orgasm. Remember that sex is just as crucial as anything else to keep you fit and healthy.
