Say yes to better sex

Everyone’s sex life has its ups and downs. Even when things are good most of the time, every couple can use a boost in the bedroom now and again. With that in mind, we put together three simple but sexy ways to keep things interesting between the sheets. Read on for three frisky tips for enhancing your sex life tonight.

Woman surprising man with sex at home

Surprise him with sex

This tried and true method will not only get him revved up in no time (likely instantaneously), but it's also an opportunity for you to take on a more dominant role if your guy is usually the one who initiates sex. Often when life gets busy or stressful, any time spent in the bedroom is reserved for sleeping, so if that sounds like you, surprising your man with sex will go a long way in kicking your love life back into high gear. Pick a time when you know he's not in the middle of something work-related (not that he would mind the distraction), because surprises work best when the person you're surprising will truly appreciate what you're doing – and have time for a revved-up romp!

Take turns being in charge

Sex with someone you've been with for a few years usually means you both have your roles – one person is usually more in charge than the other. While this is totally natural, it can eventually lead to a rut. To spice things up between the sheets, we suggest taking turns being the boss in bed. Toss a coin or decide in advance who gets what role and then have fun with it. The person in charge gets to do (or ask for) whatever they want, making for a pretty steamy sex session. Continue taking turns in the more dominant role every time you have sex.

Incorporate adventure

While you may not feel comfortable joining the mile-high club or getting frisky in the great outdoors, doing something you normally don't do can be beneficial to your love life. According to the recent Good in Bed survey on sexual adventurousness, couples who are more sexually adventurous are more likely to be sexually satisfied. Not only that, the more sexually adventurous activities an individual engages in with their current partner, the greater their level of relationship satisfaction. This could be something as simple as having sex with the lights on if you normally don't, wearing sexy lingerie, sharing fantasies or having sex somewhere other than the bedroom (something 85 percent of those surveyed said they have tried).
