With our lives being as hectic as they are, it’s easy to put sex on the back burner. But it’s not at all advisable, because it leads to resentment and a slow corrosion of the relationship. Here are 5 suggestions to help you keep the spark alive.
1. Make time for sex
It may not sound that romantic, but sometimes it’s a good idea to plan your sexual encounters with your partner. You probably believe that sex should be spontaneous and organic. Well, that would be ideal, but it’s better to schedule it than not having sex at all. When you do schedule it, you say to your partner that your sexual life is important to you and that you are willing to make an effort.
2. Talk about it
Being comfortable talking about sex is an important aspect of sexual satisfaction. Feeling safe to talk about your fantasies, about what gives you pleasure and what doesn’t, about what you want to try out and what makes you uncomfortable strengthens the bond between partners.
3. Laugh about it
Laughing with your partner can be a great aphrodisiac. It shows that you can be silly, creative and spontaneous and you don’t fear that the other will judge you. Sharing humor or creating your own inside jokes triggers the release of endorphins and produces a general sense of well-being.
