Dealing with a low sex drive can be stressful for both you and your spouse, but there are many creative ways to get your sexual health back on track. Work with your spouse to say, goodbye to your low sex drive and hello to nights of restored passion and intimacy.
Enjoy a Little Rest and Relaxation
Take some time to enjoy each others’ company by watching a television show or movie together. Select a book the two of you can read together, while cuddling in bed. Enjoy a relaxing bubble bath or take a dip in the pool. Share a walk around the neighborhood or plan a Sunday brunch at your favorite restaurant.
Share an Intimate Conversation
Share your feelings with your partner to strengthen your emotional connection. Women’s bodies respond to the intimacy that sharing thoughts, ideas and goals bring partners. Discuss your fantasies or new ideas you are interested in trying in the bedroom. Be open and honest.
Enjoy a Romantic Dinner
Prepare your spouse’s favorite meal, including dessert, and have a quiet night at home with no kids. Light some candles, dim the lights and play soft music in the background to set the mood for the evening. Or, make reservations at an upscale restaurant you’ve both been waiting to try. With no dishes to clean, you can come home and relax together for the rest of the night.
Buy Sexy Sleepwear
Surprise your spouse with a new night set from your local lingerie shop. Purchase a color or style you know he likes to see you wear. Try packing the new outfit in a gift box and presenting it to your spouse in the morning, with a sexy love note attached. He’ll spend the day anticipating his evening with you.
Shop for Bedroom Toys
Take a trip to a local adult novelty store with your spouse to shop for new and exciting items you can use in the bedroom. From massage oils and lubricants to educational sex books, adult novelty shops offer a wide selection of items to fit the needs of their customers. Add some mystery and shop separately, then surprise each other with your purchases.
Plan a Vacation
Plan a trip that takes you and your partner away from the pressures of home and work. Whether you opt for a weekend trip to a local bed and breakfast or a weeklong visit to a tropical island, time away from home can help reignite the flame. Plan for couples’ massages while you’re away so that you can relax and get pampered.
