6 Tips to Improve Your Sex Life

As sad as this may seem, more than a third of Americans in a relationship are unhappy with their sex life. What’s even more troubling, 16 percent of Americans actually claim that their partner rarely or never satisfied them at all.

Are you one of these people?

Sexual dissatisfaction can stem from many factors. Your upbringing, the dynamics of the relationship and becoming too comfortable/familiar with each other can all play a role.

Luckily, there are ways to improve sexual dynamics. Some of the things you can do to make your life better are actually pretty simple (while also being highly effective).

Acknowledge Your Dissatisfaction and Talk About It

The first step towards addressing a problem is acknowledging that it exists. Open and honest communication, instead of sweeping the issue under the rug, is the only possibility for a moving forward in a meaningful way.

Do take the time to talk to your partner about sexual unhappiness. The conversation needs to be open and honest, without pointing a finger or blaming anyone for the current situation.

Chances are that you deal with a massive difference in libidos. It’s also possible for the two of you to have grown distant over the passage of time. Whatever the reason, it’s essential to discover it together and find meaningful ways to make things better.

Once you lay out your frustration, do listen to what your partner has to say. Managing to put yourself in the other person’s shoes will reveal a lot about the problem and the best strategies for improving your sex life.

Set Realistic Goals

If you’re having sex once per month right now, it’s unrealistic to start thinking about nightly naughty adventures.

It’s very important to start with small and meaningful steps that both of you will enjoy.

Is your partner hesitant to have sex with you? If so, you need to talk about the main reason. Do they find sex boring? Are they finding it difficult to orgasm? When you have a specific issue to tackle, you can come up with a way to overcome the problem.

Do consider scheduling sex at first or trying little new things in the bedroom. If these experiments are successful, both of you will feel stimulated to move on to more prominent changes.

Try Out a New Experience

Many people are dissatisfied with their sex life because, let’s face it, things start getting boring after a while.

One of the easiest ways to hit the reset button involves trying out something new.

You could opt for cyberskin dildos and other adult toys. You could explore fantasies and little kinks that you’ve finally decided to share with your partner. And even a simple change like taking sex out of the bedroom can have a profound effect.

Don’t be afraid of changing things up. After some time, you may feel hesitant about suggesting something new. You shouldn’t be. Since the two of you know each other really well, such experiments can contribute to a lot of intimacy and a passion revival. It’s also good to remember that there are some things you can do in the day that can lead you to a night to look forward to. SexToySaver shares some ideas on how the 5 senses and even ambiance plays an important role in setting the mood for a fun night ahead.

Chances are that your partner will be eager to explore some new stuff. Don’t forget, however, to reciprocate and to also act out on their desires.

Explore Mutual Masturbation

Mutual masturbation is an amazing sexual practice that many couples could feel shy or hesitant to try out. At the same time, it can contribute to massive improvements in sex life.

What exactly is it? The term could refer to masturbating in front of your partner or using your hands to masturbate them.

Both of these practices can teach you a lot about pleasure and how your partner likes to receive it. Mutual masturbation creates a lot of intimacy and trust. You’re doing something that typically happens as a solo act in front of the person you love. This is a very sensual, vulnerable experience that can rekindle all kinds of emotions.

Observing your partner pleasure yourself can also teach you a lot of stuff you did not know before.

Even if you feel reluctant about such an experience at first, do give it some thought. Most people who have tried out mutual masturbation really enjoyed the results and they found the practice capable of creating more closeness.

Focus on (Non-Sexual) Physical Affection

As a relationship progresses, physical affection tends to diminish. Do you remember those first days when you found it difficult to keep your hands to yourself? Chances are that your self-control has improved a lot through the years. Unfortunately, the lack of touch is probably affecting your sex life.

Get in the habit of touching each other, even if that happens in a non-sexual way.

Give your partner a little peck on the lips before going to the office in the morning. Hug and caress each other more often.

Physical touch creates a sense of proximity and intimacy. It re-awakens old feelings and sensations that probably both of you didn’t realize you were missing.

The fact that you’ve been together for years or even decades doesn’t mean you should refrain from being affectionate. In fact, the more you touch each other, the more you’ll crave such proximity.

Do Improve Your Overall Health and Wellbeing

Sometimes, your physical condition and some medical problems could be standing in the way of satisfactory sex.

Something as common as chronic stress could be ruining your libido or your partner’s desire.

Keeping your body in a good shape and checking for some sexual dysfunction (like a hormonal imbalance, for example) could help you address a hidden cause of poor intimacy.

Don’t underestimate the importance of health for a satisfactory sex life. If you’ve experienced a sudden change in desire or your performance, do talk to your doctor about it. Chances are that some medical issue is to blame. Check out clinicforhim.com for reliable sexual health services.

Also, get in the habit of exercising and eating healthy foods. Both of these can improve your mood and help for the release of neurotransmitters responsible for sexual desire.

Good sex is about communication, openness and a bit of vulnerability. There’s no reason to accept mediocre intimacy as your reality. If you’re unhappy with your sex life, talk to your partner about it. That’s the best first step and it will almost certainly contribute to massive improvements.
