Put The Spark Back In Your Relationship
This is the ideal time to reignite the flame in your relationship. Prepare to keep each other warm this weekend by lighting fireworks in the bedroom...we enjoy a nice bang.
Every partnership necessitates effort on both a physical and emotional level. It's just as crucial to keep things fresh in the bedroom as it is to make the most of the time you spend together outside of it. These sex and relationship suggestions will help you spice up your sex life and make you feel closer than ever, whether your relationship has started to feel a little lacklustre or the honeymoon phase feels like a distant memory. Ann Summers knows how to start a fire, but it's up to you to keep it burning.
TOP TIPS FOR A SMOKIN’ SEX LIFE:
- Create a f**k it list
You've established a sexual routine; the same time, the same place, the same positions — it's time to shake things up! It's easy to get stuck in a sexual rut, whether you've been together for months or years. Without experimenting or switching things up, ticking the boxes of what works for one and the other. Don't let your sex life grow boring; put on your own fireworks show and make a f**k it list with your friends. Sex releases oxytocin, or "love hormone," which relieves stress, pain, and boosts immunity while also bringing you closer together. We'll thank you later for more sex and less stress.
- Use lube
Lube is the answer if your sex life has gotten dry (in a purely metaphorical sense). This simple tip is something you'll hear from us at Ann Summers time and time again because it truly is a sex game changer. The ultimate pleasure multiplier and libido booster. Freeze it, taste it, and use it as you see fit. One small bottle can drastically improve your sex life and make you feel like a blow job, hand job, or tit wank queen. For extra tickle and intensity, become slippery and play with sensation lubes. Focus on foreplay, use a lot of lubricant to develop tension and desire, and use your hands and tongue to explore each other's wet bodies. Wait until you absolutely have to.
- Role play
So you've been together for years, your love steadfast, but the prospect of being flung over the shoulder of a hot firefighter is enough to make you want to break up. Everyone has fantasies, and role play is a great way to expand your pleasure horizons while in a relationship. Use a realistic sex toy for a threesome vibe, or put on a uniform to bring your favourite porn scenario to life. The possibilities are unlimited after you've opened up that line of dialogue, whether it's a sexual situation or dress up.
BDSM and bondage don't have to be about pain, and this isn't only for the hardcore honeys among us. Changing the relationship's power dynamic is a fun method to keep things interesting. One of the most important aspects of bondage is trust: you lean back and trust your lover to catch you, whereas with BDSM, you're tied up and trust them to please you. This win-win situation intensifies your love life and, as a result, your relationship. This bonfire night, experiment with handcuffs, soft ties, or floggers in your bedroom to see how hot things may get.
- Aim to please
It's a two-way street when it comes to sex. Learn some new ways and surprise your spouse if you know they are a fan or oral. We have instructions on everything you need to know, so check out our blowjob guide or our oral sex guide to learn what ladies actually like. For date night, grab a couples sex toy and reconnect in a whole new way. We're here to make sure you always do it well and with confidence.
TOP TIPS FOR A HOT RELATIONSHIP:
- Make time
Unfortunately, time makes us all complacent, and it's easy to take your spouse for granted after spending so much time with them. Setting up a date night guarantees that you don't become engrossed in the monotony of box sets and slow sex, no matter how relaxing it may seem. There's a certain comfort in knowing that your lover still respects you despite your lack of make-up and slobbing, but comfort fosters contempt. Dress up and set aside time to bond. Enjoy a few out-of-town dinners and long talks that aren't interrupted by children, phones, or television. Spend time alone, away from electronics, remembering the minor idiosyncrasies and bad jokes that drew you in the first place.
- Be affectionate
Kissing hello or cuddling in bed may seem natural, but modest, regular gestures of affection maintain attention and make you both feel cherished. During dinner, simple gestures like holding hands or stroking their thigh keep the flirty behaviour from the beginning of your relationship alive. Allow those feel-good chemicals to be released and never let them need or miss your attention.
- Send cute and kinky texts
In any relationship, communication is essential. You communicate feelings and wishes by sending sweet (or nasty) texts throughout the day. Send your partner dirty messages and tell them what you plan to do to them when you come home. Tell them you love them and talk to them about something other than your bad day at work. Keep things fresh - instead of sending love notes, send SMS messages that are both soppy and sensual.
