4 Sex Tips to Get The Spark Back
If you’ve ever been in a long-term relationship (LTR, for the cool people), chances are your sex life has waned at some point. To help put some spice back into the bedroom, our team has compiled a list of the following 4 tips guaranteed to get you excited again.
1. Sex Tricks Out of a Hat
Sex can start to seem tedious sometimes if one of you is tired at the end of the day and the other wants to have sex. LTR’s can sometimes suffer from “the everyday wind and grind.” But this game could help get both of you in the mood, while also keeping the bedroom full of surprises.
Get 10 cards or pieces of paper and write 10 different sex positions on them. Google around and find some you like if you need inspiration. It can also be new ones you haven’t tried or ones you’ve always wanted to try. (Make sure both of you read them over and give them the okay!)
For when you feel like spicing things up, try pulling a card out of hat or box to figure out what you’ll be trying that night. And you have to try — even if the position looks harder than acro yoga. Because laughing is sexy too.
2. Different Rooms at Different Times
When’s the last time you thought your kitchen could be a sexy place to get it on?
Switching up where you have sex and when you have sex can completely change the way sex feels and happens. It gives you both a sense of newness, and it’ll help the relationship feel fresh again if you’ve both been lazy about having sex. Try a new bubble bath in the bathroom or get grungy in the garage — your home will be full of secrets by the end of a week.
3. Phone Sex in Different Rooms
You’re in an LTR, so chances are that you’re living together. Add a bit of distance into the situation by getting your partner into the bedroom while you get dirty on the couch. Get your phones out and start tantalizing your partner until they can’t take it anymore and storm your room.
(For added bonus, try and lock their door from the outside if you can. When you come along with the key, they’ll be begging for you to put it in).
4. Go shopping together…at an adult toy store!
Of course, we have to suggest this because you’d be surprised how many couples don’t go in person to an adult toy store to shop together. It’s a fun experience that can inspire some new ideas in the boudoir.
Plan to buy at least one thing when you both go into your nearest adult toy store. This way, you’re both forced to think about things you’d actually want to use (or perhaps wear) in the bedroom. It’s doing new things and adding new things together that make it intimate and fun, and that’s the combination for sexy.
