So you’ve been in a relationship for a while, and things in the bedroom are starting to get a little static. There’s little excitement, no spontaneity, you’ve got things down to a science. It’s become more of a routine than a rendezvous. But let me tell you, that is the quickest way to fizzle out. So it is time to put some pep back in your step and bring out those bedroom eyes. With these tips, I guarantee a hotter night life and a more passionate love life. Some of these are more adventurous than others, but what’s more thrilling than experimenting?
If you just want to dip your toes in the water, something fun and flirty you can try out is the “let’s fool around” dice. On each side of the die, there is either a body part or an action you perform on said body part. This is a really easy way to be playful and try something new, without doing something that makes you uncomfortable. For the more adventurous, you can purchase a spin-off of this—the sex Jenga game. On each piece, an act is written, and you get the picture. It’s easy, fun, and will definitely spice things up. You can find these products at Spencer’s.
Recently, I learned about Love is Art, a company that sells canvases and non-toxic body paint for a couple to have sex on and then hang up as a decoration. Basically you strip down with your loved one, lather on some paint, and do the dirty on the canvas. Then you jump in the shower while the paint is drying and then hang that puppy up. At first, I thought this was the most bizarre thing in the entire world. There is in no way I want to hang my dirty deeds in my living room for everyone to see. Imagine that conversation: “I like your painting” “oh, that’s us having sex.” But then I was like hey, don’t be so judgmental. This could actually be a lot of fun. If this sounds like your idea of a fun night with the boo, you can find their products at loveisartkit.com. Products range from $60-$110.
If you’re someone who is looking just to have some silly sex-related fun, the card game Dirty Minds is just the game for you. It’s a play on words, in where you read off clues which are alluded to be dirty when they really aren’t. It’s a hilarious game to play at a party among close friends, and who knows where it’ll lead later that night.
Try doing little things throughout the day. One, to show them you love them and two, to get things ramped up. There is nothing more exciting than anticipation. Sneak a peek while they’re getting dressed, give them an extra long kiss, send them a steamy text in the middle of the day. And when it happens, it’ll be great. And try switching up moves and positions in the bedroom! Instant hotness.
The best aphrodisiac known among the sex world is honestly……trying something new together. It can be sexual—handcuffs, food, role playing, sex paint—or it can be completely innocent—rock climbing, cooking a meal together, taking a class together, going to the gym. It honestly doesn’t matter what it is, as long as you are doing it and doing it together. Doing a novel activity together boosts team building and reminds you of when you were first doing things together and why you fell in love with them in the first place.
