2020 was difficult for everyone. If your love life suffered last year, you’re not alone. But it’s a new year, and you can make your love life amazing in 2021. Here are a few tips for having a great time with your partner in the coming year.
Mismatches in libido are common. You can work around this by finding out whether you and your partner have different arousal types. Recent research has shown that there are two dominant arousal types: spontaneous desire and responsive desire.
Spontaneous desire is the type that most people think of when they consider arousal. If you’re someone with a spontaneous arousal type, you don’t need much to get you going.
On the other hand, responsive desire means that someone becomes aroused in response to being emotionally stimulated the right way.
To improve your love life, find out which arousal types you and your partner experience. If one of you experiences responsive desire, talk about which behaviors and words are turn-ons.
Nothing can get in the way of a good sex life like health issues. If your mind is willing, but your body is not, don’t despair.
Though you might feel awkward telling your doctor about health problems that inhibit sex, you shouldn’t worry. Doctors have heard it all before. There’s nothing you can say that will shock your doctor.
Many people are especially shy about bringing up erectile dysfunction, but don’t let that stop you.
The list of erectile dysfunction causes include:
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
Every single one of the possible causes has numerous treatment options.
No matter what you and your partner like in bed, there are sex toys that can make it feel even better. If you and your partner haven’t experimented with toys before (or if you only use them when you’re alone), try using them as a team.
As some people say, the brain is the biggest sex organ. To have a great love life, you need more than just skills in bed. You need communication skills.
A lot of people assume that good sex just happens. That might be true at the beginning of a relationship when you and your partner are both in the honeymoon phase, but it’s not true forever. To keep your sex life exciting for the long haul, you need to talk.
If you don’t tell your partner about your fantasies and ask about theirs, you can miss out on mind-blowing sex.
Stress is one of the most common factors behind a reduced sex drive. For a better sex drive and greater sexual satisfaction, do things to take care of your mental health.
Yoga, meditation, and exercise can reduce stress. Getting a good night’s rest is another way to help arm yourself against stress.
If your partner is stressed, try to reduce their workload by helping around the house or taking over tasks that tire them out. If you’re the one who’s overwhelmed, ask your partner for help.
If you want a great love life in 2021, you can have it. Communicate with your partner, try new things, and focus on your health. You and your partner will enjoy each other more than ever.
