If you are in a committed relationship or are married, do you find yourself getting bored in the bedroom or wishing you were with someone else from time to time? This is pretty normal for most couples and happens more than you might think. Thankfully, there’s a lot you and your partner can do to make it interesting on a daily basis.
For starters, you can do little things to spice things up. Remember that a little goes a long way, and your partner will notice and appreciate your attempts. Here are some things you can try:
- Change the time of day for sex
- Try having sex in a new area of the house (or outside, you get the idea ;))
- Switch it up between sex all day and little trysts
Don’t forget about sight, touch, taste, sense, and sound. Don’t just go through the motions of sex, for God’s sake! Are you looking into your partner’s eyes, licking their skin and noticing their unique taste? Are you smelling their hair and pinching their skin? Listen very closely to the sound of their breath on your skin…it’s beautiful, isn’t it? Talk dirty, light candles, use wax and edible markers, anything to get the senses rolling. Blindfolds are a great way to force your other senses into overdrive and will make you crave for more.
Finally, don’t be afraid to try new things. If you want to try something different, there’s no better time than the present. Domination, toys, and a long list of sexual interests are sure to put the spice back into your routine. But you have to communicate that with your partner; don’t be afraid to ask for the things you may be even remotely curious about.
And that’s really what this is all about. Communication. If you’re stuck in a rut with your partner, talk about it. Be open and honest and talk about how you’re going to get out of it. Don’t be afraid to try new things, even if you feel silly! Vulnerability is sexy and will keep your relationship strong.
