How to Make Sex a Priority
Your daily schedule is packed enough to make a grown woman weep. Get up, get the kids ready and off to school or day care at the same time as making sure you are ready for work. Put in a busy day at work, filled with meetings and deadlines, then run home, stopping along the way to get groceries, fit in a quick workout, and watch your son’s soccer game. After getting home, you fix dinner, referee homework time, get everything set out for tomorrow, then collapse into bed, giving your husband a quick hug before rolling over and passing out.
Sex? What is sex? There’s no time left for sex. Well, guess what girl? You need to make sex a priority to lead a fulfilling life and have a satisfying relationship. Here are some surefire ways to get those home fires burning.
It sounds cold and clinical to schedule sex like you would schedule a doctor’s appointment, but it is just that important to fit in your life. Scheduling it will lead to anticipation, and after a few sex appointments, your love life will be rekindled, and you both will want to make the time for more.
Have a Date Night
Start a ritual of regular nights out, such as every Saturday night. Make sure you line up the babysitter in advance, so there will be no missed opportunities. Your date night can be as simple as pizza and a movie, or as exciting as a dinner in the city at one of those trendy restaurants. There most important thing is to keep it romantic and make a point not to talk about the kids, the house, or the job. Focus on each other.
Make Your Bedroom a Sanctuary
Has your bed become the place where you work on your work project, watch a TV show, or catch up on Facebook? Make your bedroom a refuge from the world. Remove the television, ban the computer, turn off your cell phone. Have sexy ambient lighting, make the bed with inviting sheets and duvets, don’t go to bed wearing running shorts and a Mickey Mouse tee shirt. You don’t have to wear a satin negligee but at least wear nightclothes that send him a message.
Are you both stuck in that missionary position rut? Change it up a bit by trying new positions, do it in a different room, add a kinky sex toy or leave the lights on. Getting more adventurous adds a new dimension of sensuality and playfulness to your sex life.
Talk About It
When your partner is leaving in the morning for work, whisper in his ear that you can’t wait until you both are alone, or send him a suggestive text. Let him know that you want him, and you are thinking of him. The mind is a great tool for great sex. Talk about what you want to do, when you want to do it, and new things to try. Your sex life will truly become the priority it is meant to be in your life.
