Turn up the heat in the bedroom this year

New year, new you

Just remind yourself that a new year is a time for new beginnings. Make it your resolution this year to do things in the bedroom you've never done before. If role-playing or sexy outfits have always scared you a little, try them out. Give yourself the gift of letting go and bringing more excitement to a routine sex life.

Have sex anywhere but your bed

Instead of doing the traditional, shake things up. Having sex in the same place all the time leads to nothing other than routine. Instead, vow to never have sex in your bed again. Try the bathroom, shower, kitchen table (just wipe it down afterward, before anyone eats off it) or even the couch. Anywhere can be sexy. The idea is to learn to break free from routine and go with the flow.


If you typically wait for your partner to initiate, be the one to get things going instead. Your resolution is to dare to be different this year. If you want to kick your sex life up a notch, you'll have to do whatever you can to break free from your routine.


Aside from health and weight loss benefits, exercise can make your sex life better. Most couples avoid sex because they don't feel sexy or they are too tired. Regular exercise will make you feel good about your body again as well as boost your energy.

Try at least one new position

Make it your resolution this year to try a position you never have before — ever! Get a copy of the Kama Sutra (money well spent, we might add), and randomly select something different. Before trying a position that can be difficult to manoeuvre, read about it first. Find out why this position can spice things up and make you and your partner feel more intimate, and slowly get into it.
