If you were pressed to list what was missing from your sex life, what would you say? Even if you and your partner engage in a bit of physical intimacy on the regular, there is always room to spice things up a bit. Recently, Women's Health Magazine covered a survey from International Communications Research and We-Vibe indicating that many couples want to incorporate a bit more playfulness in the bedroom.
The source states that 59 percent of respondents just want to have more fun when they are doing the deed. But, how do you go about introducing more levity under the covers? Dr. Wendy Walsh, a relationship expert, told Women's Health that one of the most important steps in doing so is acknowledging a sexual rut when you're in one.
"People learn to play each other's instruments, and then they go to the same two spots. But you become accustomed to that and you can become numb emotionally and physically," Walsh explained.
First, you have to be honest with your partner about how you're really feeling (and vice versa) when things get hot and heavy. If you and your loved one just aren't being satisfied, don't hide that fact for fear of offending the other. Sexual intimacy is about your unique connection, and faking it won't do either of you any favors. Once you've overcome this tendency, you can shake up the standard routine and start experimenting to find out what really gets you both going.
Whether you decide to investigate some new sexual positions or dabble in the world of water based lubricants, there is no time like the present to enhance your pleasure.
