1. Perform Kegel exercises for a better sex life.
Kegel exercises strengthen the PC muscles by increasing the flow of blood circulation in the pelvic region, thus improving their tone and sensitivity. Strong PC muscles result in stronger sensations during arousal and orgasm. Squeezing them during sex can enhance the orgasmic pleasure for women.
Here’s how to perform Kegel exercises. To start with, sit in a relaxed position with your legs slightly apart or lie down on your back with the knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Now focus and start contracting the PC muscles as tightly as you can, 30 to 50 repetitions in rapid succession. Breathe freely throughout. After this, contract and hold the PC muscles for 5 seconds and then relax for 5 seconds, gradually increasing this to 10 second contractions and 10 second relaxation. As you master this, keep introducing variations by holding the contractions for longer durations with equal rest intervals.
2. Never treat sex as a burden.
The key lies not in thinking about ways to deny it to your partner, but to think of ways to be enthusiastic about your sex life. It should be an active de-stressor in your life. After all, who wouldn’t love a good sex life? Talk your partner into it if you are in the mood for it tonight. Let things like cleaning, making dinner, attending work calls all be attended well in time. Candle light dinners are passé, we say dress down for it, take a shower together and let the passion unfold!
3. Top 3 foods that will help boost your sex life:
Raw Oysters. Identified as one of the top ranked aphrodisiacs, raw oysters help in setting the mood. They are known for increasing the quantity of sperm in men. Some say that if you incorporate raw oysters in your foreplay session, the sticky, slimy flavour of raw oysters is enough to get you in the mood.
Strawberries. Enough has already been said about how the colour red helps in igniting passion. This red wet, drippy fruit makes for an excellent foreplay fruit. Drip the juices over your partner’s body and you’ll do just fine.
