Is your sex life in a slump? Here's how to get back in the groove.
It should come as no surprise that after a busy day, a stressful event, or just sheer laziness, your sex life can fall to the wayside. But just because you're experiencing a drought, doesn't mean your sex life is doomed - it's just taking a nap. Give your libido a wakeup call with these suggestions.
Just Do It: There's a reason people say sex is like a drug - it is. See, during sex, part of the brain that switches on is the same area that also gets revved during the rush-induced effects of nicotine. So when we experience something pleasurable, our brains want this behavior again and again. Which is why people in love often can't get enough of each other. In other words, the more you do it, the more you'll want it. Sure, it can be hard to motivate if you're used to slumping in front of the tube after work, but the payoff is too good to pass up!
Touch Yourself: Researchers say women who masturbate have more sex and more intense orgasms than women who don't. And it makes sense - the more you get hot and bothered on your own, the easier it'll be to evoke those same feelings with your guy. So bring yourself to the brink, then ask him to join in.
Swap Fantasies: It's a proven fact: People who fantasize regularly have more frequent and satisfying sex than those who don't. Why? Women with a sexually active mind are better at tapping into their libidos. So drum up your best sexy scenario, then dare your man to fulfill it.
