Happy sex life tips for your relationship
Having a happy sex life has been linked to everything from better heart health to better relationship health.
There’s no magic number when it comes to how frequent you should have sex. What does matter is that each partner feels safe and comfortable, and they’re having pleasurable sex?
Improving your sex life takes work and planning. Contrary to popular belief, this doesn’t cause the romance to be taken out of it. In fact, working on your sex life together as a couple can be a good way to put the romance back into your relationship.
Don’t fake it
Sometimes it might feel easier to fake an orgasm or your desire instead of talking out why it didn’t work for you this time.
You may want to avoid hurting your partner’s feelings. You may also just want to get it over with if you’re exhausted or can’t shut off your mind.
But this can be detrimental to both your intimacy and ability to improve on your sexual encounters together.
It is important, to be honest about your feeling. This helps someone to get better at giving you pleasure.
Explore your body
Experimenting with masturbation can be a good way for you to learn about what you like and dislike sexually in a safe and comfortable way.
Some couples also find that masturbating together is arousing and a beneficial way to learn about each other’s bodies.
Don’t skip foreplay
Foreplay is often an integral part of getting ready for other types of sex.
The type of foreplay you engage in is also important. Help your partner learn where you like to be kissed and how you like to be touched. Talk about what arouses both of you. Provide plenty of it before moving on to the next steps.
Get in sync about timing
No one’s sex life remains static. In the early stages of your relationship, you may have sex several times a day or week. Later on, how often you have sex may lessen for many reasons, including the addition of children into your lives, stress, and scheduling.
Libido also changes over time. Scheduling sex may sound like a turnoff, but for many couples, it sets a framework they can count on and look forward to.
For this to work, you have to prioritize your sex life over some things. This doesn’t mean that you neglect your other duties but, you schedule them for a later time.
Set the stage all-day
If sex is on your agenda for the evening, build up each other’s anticipation and desire during the day. You can do this by sending each other sexy texts or photos. Consider sharing passages from a sexually explicit novel or movie you both enjoy.
Build up your own sense of anticipation and arousal by letting your mind wander to the night’s forthcoming activities, too.
