It may seem like the only way to spice up your sex life is to experiment with role playing or new positions, but sometimes the reason you haven't spent more time in the bedroom lies a little bit deeper than boredom. If you've been feeling insecure about your sexual prowess, for whatever reason, Woman's Day recently published some quick tips to help boost your self-esteem in the bedroom. Here are some highlights:
- Get cheeky with your lingerie: Yes, it's cliché, but it really does work! Purchasing a lacy number isn't just so your partner has something to look at – it can make you feel sexy and empowered. Who knows, you just might want to take a more dominant role in the bedroom in that black bustier!
- Put down the magazine and turn off the TV: We're surrounded by images of stick-thin celebrities and busty, curvy stars, which can easily make any real woman feel inadequate. Woman's Day suggests taking a look at real women's bodies. Try your local gym or a fitting room at your favorite store to remind yourself that there are dozens of body types, and all are beautiful.
- Turn it up to 11: If you're having trouble getting in the mood, the magazine suggests turning down the lights and cranking up the music. You probably have a favorite song or artist who gets you in the mood, so use this as a tool to help you let go of any insecurities that might be holding you back.
There are so many ways to get back to feeling like you in the bedroom, from these tips to trying out a new arousal gel. Stay tuned for more tips and tricks to improve your sexual satisfaction!
