Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 5.24.53 PM Not changing positions Explore your wild side and all sorts of positions. You don’t need to have experienced them before. Read up on sex positions and introduce them in bed. One position can be boring and switching it up a notch with new positions that keep things interesting. Always doing it at the same time, and same place It’s easy to get into a routine, and only do it at night and in bed. But, you’d be surprised at the pleasure waiting for you, if you only just broke out of your shell. Take advantage of those times when the kids are away and run wild in your house. Be spontaineous and use your lunch hour for an afternoon quickie at your house or try it in the morning. Refusing to try anything new If your partner suggests something new, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he is cheating. It may just be that it’s something that he always fantasised about. If it’s something harmless, try it and you might enjoy yourself as well. Not initiating sex Letting your guy know that you want it too can be incredibly sexy. Stop thinking of wanting sex as a thing that loose women do. Excerise your right to sexual liberation. Initiating sex can add a bit of spice to your sex life. Faking orgasm Don’t you think you need to get as much satisfaction from sex as your man? Though it may be okay to fake it every now and then, but this is an issue that needs to be adressed soonest, because you both have to be happy with your sex life. So tell what you need in bed. Not guiding him, so he can give you what you want If your guy is fumbling about, and not hitting the spot for you, it doesn’t always mean he is bad in bed. Try and guide him towards the things you like in bed. Moan when he is doing something right and don’t be afraid to take his hand and guide him to your most erogenous zones. Ignoring pain Pain during sex can leave anyone dreading sexual intercourse. But, your partner is not going to know unless you tell him. There are also many reasons that could be causing your pain – from vaginal dryness, which could be easily solved with some lube or it could be a sign of early menopause, to infection and a physical problem with your anatomy. Speak to your partner and seek medical help. A sex therapist can also help you get to the root of a psychological problem that may be the source of your pain. Being insecure of your body Love yourself and your body with all the imperfections. And believe it, your man loves your body – cellulite and all - otherwise he wouldn’t be with you. So stop being insecure and release the sex kitten in you.
