Keeping your relationship fresh in the bedroom is easy

5 Ways to Keep the Relationship Fresh

By: Kat George

Everyone wants to keep their relationship fresh and frisky. While you're obviously attracted to your partner, life can get in the way of intimacy. Work, family, and every day duties begin to take precedence, and sex isn't always the top priority.

Luckily, it's not hard to spice up your sex life. You might not be able to lie in bed all day enjoying each other's company, but you can always make time to get down and dirty. Here are some tips that will have you feeling like you're back in the honeymoon stage.

Be Spontaneous

When life gets the best of you, it can be difficult to be spontaneous. You might have to make more of a concerted effort to do so. When you're sitting on the couch watching TV with your partner, lean over and give her a long, lingering kiss. When you're out for a long drive, pull over to a secluded spot and lead her to the backseat. Sex doesn't always have to be a bedtime routine: you can be frisky almost anywhere. Add in the occasional surprise quickie and in no time your relationship will feel as fresh as a daisy.

Try Something New

Even long term couples haven't done and seen it all, so trying something new isn't difficult. If bringing toys into the bedroom is uncharted territory for you, take a sexy, exploratory adventure together with Durex® Play® Delight Intimate Massager. Not only will the sex be fresh, you'll learn things about yourself and your partner that you never knew before.

Go To a Comedy Show

This might sound strange, but studies have shown that comedy improves your sex life because of the effect of raucous laughter on the body. It makes your blood pump, spikes your heart rate and gets your cardiovascular system going. Research suggests that these factors increase your pleasure in the bedroom.

Talk About It

You might think you know everything there is to know about your partner, but the beauty of being in a relationship is that they can always surprise you. Talking about your fantasies and desires can give you a good idea of how you can rejuvenate your sex life – and also can be a huge turn you on. Tell each other specifically what turns you on about the other person, and when you're in the act, be vocal about what feels good. Dirty talk is an instant relationship refresher, so communicate with your partner about where you want to be touched.

Have Sex in the Morning

Studies have shown that sex in the morning is actually good for your health, so start scheduling your morning romps now! You might wake up feeling groggy, but sleep leaves you with more energy to bump and grind than you have after a long day at the office. Morning sex gets your heart pumping, circulation flowing, and increases your mood for a great start to the day.
