Having a healthy sexual relationship is vital to most relationships. According to recent research, the average adult American has sex around once a week. How does that statistic land on you?
If you feel that your sex life has dried up, all is not lost. There are a whole host of ways that you can put the spark back into your bedroom and we’re here to help you.
Ready to learn the key aspects of how to have a healthy sex life? Then read on!
1. Communication Is Key to a Healthy Sexual Relationship
Sex may not be a topic that you’d bring up in conversation with everyone but it’s vital to do so with your partner. If your partner is doing something in particular that turns you on or makes your libido shrivel, tell them. Expressing your likes and dislikes is so important to a good sex life.
We’d recommend that you also have a full and frank conversation about your kinks. Is there something that you’d love to try? How do they feel about it?
2. Take it Slow
Sometimes you can feel like you have to rush sex. In a marriage, this is particularly common, especially if you’ve got children to take care of. You might feel like the long, languid sessions of your youth are lost forever.
There’s no reason this has to be the case. Try to put aside some time that you will use to have a long, passionate session.
Why not put on some fancy lingerie or have your partner wear something sexy? Take the time to indulge in foreplay and make out for ages before you start getting hot and heavy.
There’s so much more joy to sex when you take it slow. Relax: you’ve got all the time you need.
3. Try Out Different Positions
Do you always have sex in the same position? Missionary with the lights off can get dull fast, so why not switch it up? While not all positions are possible for all people, it’s worth finding out the ones you could use and try adding them to your sex life!
If you’re very flexible, why not pick up a copy of the Kama Sutra with your partner and work your way through it together?
4. Work On Your Body Confidence
You, reading this right now, you’re beautiful. It doesn’t matter who you are, you’re a top-of-the-line specimen of humanity.
We get that sometimes it can be hard to be confident in our body and our perceived faults. If this is getting in the way of your sex life, we’d recommend meditation, positive self-talk, and self-love. See yourself as the wondrous being that you are.
5. Use Toys
If you want to bring a little extra spice to your sex life, why not use toys? Vibrators, magic wands, cock rings, and other toys can add a whole new dimension to the experience for both of you.
Get Out There and Enjoy a Better Sex Life!
