Let’s talk about sex (and a giveaway)
So my plan was to post this for Valentine’s Day but like a lot of other parents I suspect I got a little distracted helping my daughter with all her Valentine’s Day projects. So many Valentine’s! And my husband was also away for the big day so it was mommy/daughter day. Fun but obviously not romantic. But it doesn’t have to be a special day to talk about sex right? We’re all adults here. I know this is a bit of a departure from the sort of topics I discuss on the blog but let’s face it – sex is something to celebrate! It helps reduce stress and lets us feel more connected to our partner. Robin Milhausen, sexual health and relationship expert, reveals the following tips to kick it up a notch and add a little spice to your routine, while enhancing pleasure and intimacy in your relationship.
 

1.       Dirty talk, clean space.

There’s nothing like hotel or vacation sex.  Having sex in a new environment can help us feel more spontaneous or adventuresome.  But time and money for a holiday aren’t always available. Recreate vacation sex by making your bedroom your sexual sanctuary. Remove clutter, invest in good sheets and set the mood. Research suggests women, in particular, have a hard time getting aroused in a dirty and messy place. If you want to make the night extra memorable, introduce a vibrator for her like the Trojan™ Power Wand Vibrations Massager. Let the talk be dirty, and the room be clean – your sex life will thank you.

2.       Focus on the sensations.

One of the latest trends in sex therapy is mindfulness.  Often during a sexual encounter our minds wander to tasks at work, issues with the kids, and more. And when you aren’t attuned to the pleasurable sensations of sex, it’s more difficult to feel connected to your partner and to experience orgasm. When you feel a distracting thought come on, notice it and let it go. Purposefully focus on the sensations you are experiencing all over your body. To amplify the sensation and experience further pleasure, try Trojan™ Groove™ Condoms. With extra lubrication and textured channels, these condoms will provide continued satisfaction.

3.       Add lube! Always add lube!

Lube makes everything better!  In a recent midlife study by SIECCAN and Trojan™, participants who manually stimulated their partners with lube were more likely to rate the act as very pleasurable than if lube was not used.  Sex of all kinds is better when slippery – plus it’s fun. The new Trojan™ Chain Reaction™ Lubricant uses a special blend of intensifiers that release a variety of sensations during use for a unique experience every time! Spontaneity at its finest.
And my own tip – always remember only yes means yes!

    My hubby leave a love letter notes everytime he went out of town, when he come back he always make up for the lost time. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO ENJOY BEING TOGETHER but it’s the work that separates us, glad he’s home now, would be great to win this as a surprise!
