Try Something New in the Bedroom

SEX is typically the first aspect of a relationship that gets boring! Many argue that if you can keep things creative in this department, your partner will never get bored.

  • Read books and different materials on sex and then experiment with your partner.
  • Have a naked day! Pick a day of the week when you can both afford to stay all day indoors. The rule is simple, you both have to be naked all day, relax and watch it play out.
  • Sex in the bedroom can be romantic, but it gets boring quickly. Try this - For a week, no sex in the room! Try the kitchen, the couch, the shower, anywhere but the bedroom.
  • Keep it in your pants, oral pleasure only. You both have to commit to keeping it in your pants. This means he cannot use his junk, and you have to find ways to pleasure him without your va-jay-jay.
