Know Your Partner
This may seem like one of the most obvious ways to get the most out of your sex life. However, it is super important that you and your partner are on the same page with what works for you both sexually. If you’re in a relatively new relationship, it’s worth experimenting to see what both of you like, but there’s also no harm in asking what turns your partner on!
Don’t Underestimate Physical Affection
Whether you’ve been in a long-term relationship or are struggling to maintain your sex drive as you age, never underestimate the power of physical affection. Not only is it a great way to lead into sex, but keeping it throughout can help create a powerful connection between you and your partner, resulting in more passionate sex and potentially a stronger climax.
Many couples that attend therapy to help them improve their sex lives are usually taught the sensate focus techniques to encourage them to re-establish physical intimacy with their partner. There are many exercises you can try, but it’s certainly an effective way of engaging your senses and getting the most out of your sex. It will also help you develop a deeper understanding of exactly how your partner likes to be touched and vice versa.
Switch Up Positions
Nobody with a great sex life has the same routine every time. Those that experiment with positions and mix it up have the best sex as they are open to finding exactly what works for them but are also spicing up their relationship at the same time. If you never try, you’ll never know!
Discuss Your Fantasies
If there’s one thing people often complain of their sex life lacking its excitement. It’s incredibly easy to slip into a routine of ‘okay’ and straightforward sex – but is that really what you and your partner want? Fantasies are personal to everyone, but sharing them with someone you love can be a great bonding experience and could even lead to amazing sex! Try discussing your fantasies with one another and see how you can incorporate these into your current sex life.
