5 Ways to vamp up your sex life

What woman in her right mind doesn't want to be deeply loved and in love, sexed up, whisked away on a romantic date and spoiled silly all while looking like a goddess? If there's a woman who doesn't want that, we haven't met her yet. So ...

How to get
in the mood

Between work, the kids and everything else going on in your life, it's no wonder that you may have let your sex life fade into the background. But that's no fun! Here are five ways to revitalize your sex life.

1. Make out like a teenager

When you're a teenager, there is nothing more important than making out. But sadly, once we're out of our teens, it's easy to forget how fun and exciting a steamy make-out session can be. Kissing can also become habitual or — worse still — bypassed altogether during foreplay, so commit to a solid make-out sesh, and see where it takes you.

2. Be a tease

Anticipation is a crucial ingredient when it comes to saucy sex, and flirting and teasing serves to build anticipation and generate a sense of urgency. All of this can contribute to more passionate lovemaking and a bigger, better release during sex. Send a kinky text, or fire off a suggestive email — or simply whisper in his ear at your next dinner party that you're not wearing any panties. That usually does the trick!

3. Enjoy an aphrodisiac

Make a meal of the hot and spicy foods that are said to make you sweaty and excitable! Chili, for example, contains Capsaicin, a substance that releases endorphins, stimulates nerve endings and increases your heart rate. Almonds are high in libido-boosting vitamin E and goji berries have long been considered a potent sexual tonic throughout Asia.

4. Get some sexy extras

Sure, a pair of sexy stilettos definitely falls into this category but we're really talking about top-drawer accessories of the battery-operated kind. Grab your partner and visit an adult store so you can shop for toys together!

5. Make a date

You need to prioritise your sex life and give it the time and attention it deserves, versus just squeezing sex in between folding the laundry and watching the late news. Scheduling a date may not be spontaneous, but it does allow you the time to connect and focus on each other without distractions. Besides, a romantic restaurant setting might be the perfect opportunity for you to let your lover know you're sans underwear (see point two!)
