Even in your twenties it can be easy to fall into a monotonous routine in the bedroom. When you realized that you’re more excited about the latest episode of The Tonight Show than getting naked with your partner at night, it’s probably time for you both to put in more of an effort.
There is no reason you should be in a sex rut while you’re in your twenties—or ever! There are ways to help you spice it up, regardless of your comfort zone. But it’s important to keep an open dialogue with your partner about what you both are craving in the bedroom, so neither of you crosses any lines.
Keeping your comfort zone in mind, we have a few ways you can take your sexy time from a 3 to a 10 on the hot scale.
Read a dirty novel: There are many options that can be found at your local bookstore. This will open you up to new ideas and fantasies that can be brought back to your bedroom. Christian Grey will have nothing on your man.
Make it delicious: Bring some yummy treats into the bedroom. This can be anything from whipped cream to a candy-coated bra. This may seem cheesy, but it can get you the foreplay you need while making it enjoyable and super-sweet for your partner. There is a risk with getting some of these items near your lady zone, so please be careful!
Change up your locale: This is a great way for even the most conservative couples to spice it up. A different place can be anywhere from in the shower to the kitchen or, for the exhibtionists, even in a parked car.
Role play: This can be adapted to anyone’s level of comfort. For some people this could mean playing Boss and Secretary in your bedroom, or you might try “meeting each other” as strangers at a bar.
Use a toy: For those who are a little braver, there is always the option of bringing some battery-powered partners into the bedroom. These can be purchased at local sex stores or, for those looking for more discretion, from an online website.
