Explore our secrets to satisfaction in the bedroom and beyond
Surveys show that married people have better sex than singles do. And DINKs have it even better. After all, we can do it anywhere and any time we want. Turn the heat up in your sex life with these top ten tips for hotter sex:
1. Boost your connection: If you want a better connection in the bedroom, begin in your everyday lives. Studies show that couples that have a strong emotional connection have more satisfying sex. DINKs certainly have a leg-up on singles in this department. But you can create an even deeper bond (read: have better sex) with a little relationship housekeeping. You know, having a date night, resolving conflicts, improving communication. That kind of stuff.
2. Have morning sex: DINKs never have to worry about the kids waking up early—so morning sex is almost mandatory. After all, research shows that getting it on first thing in the morning makes people happier and healthier than those who don’t. Plus it releases the feel-good chemical oxytocin, which will make you and your S.O. feel blissed out and bonded from sunrise until sunset.
3. Relax: Boys to Men and Barry White are onto something with their smooth sounds. By creating a relaxing atmosphere, you can heighten the sexual experience—especially for her. Studies show that women must deactivate the parts of their brains that deal with stress and anxiety before they can get aroused. So turn the lights down low and crank those love songs for a harmonious sex session.
4. Mix up the location: What do an office chair, a star-lit beach and a staircase have in common? They’re all great spots to get it on. While the bedroom will always work for an orgasmic encounter, sex isn’t always best under the sheets. Mixing up the location is a sure-fire recipe for hotter one-on-one time.
5. Exercise: As if you needed another reason to hit the gym, research shows that working out benefits more than just your health. Exercising activates the sympathetic nervous system, which encourages blood flow to the genital region—and you know what that leads to! Exercise can even benefit your sex life for years to come: Men who work out can lessen their chance of developing (gasp) erectile dysfunction later in life.
