Sometimes being intimate with your husband can be far more fulfilling than actually having sex (okay guys, I said sometimes.) Many people have different ideas of sex and what it means but whatever your definition maybe, you've got to know that some things are more satisfying than the main event.
There are so many things that you and your partner can focus on to build your chemistry, to spice up your life and connect on a deeper level. We've listed a few things we think you could do with your darling husband that are better than sex.
Cuddling is one of the most romantic things you can do with your husband. Hug each other, spoon each other and just be as close as possible. Of course, you can even break into tickling each other and sharing a few giggles. If you want to spice it up, kisses on the neck and nibbling his ears are always there.
Having real conversations is one of the most powerful tools to increase intimacy. You both lead hectic lives and taking turns to pamper each other and listening to what's really going on in your partner's life can be extremely fulfilling. Share your problems and even talk about things that make you ecstatic- it's way sexier than sex, trust us!
There's something so romantic about cooking a meal together. Spend a weekend where you cook a meal together so not only do you get to devour what you're eating but also go through the whole process of making something together. Pasta, risotto or even a pizza go great with a bottle of wine and candlelight.
Can there be anything sexier than giving or receiving a hot oil massage from your partner? Skip the professionals and indulge in a sensual massage session. Dim the lights and play a sexy track to set the mood right. Of course, make sure you're both stripped naked!
Going for a class together is such a great idea if you want to spend your weekends doing something fun other than lazing around the house. Take up a hobby together, like a mixology class or salsa lessons. You can even take up painting or other crafts to spend more time with your partner. You never know you discover a completely new dimension of your partner!
Working out with your partner releases endorphins which are the same hormones released during sex. You feel happy and blissful as you work out together, be it at the gym or a hot yoga session. After you're sweaty you can even jump in the shower together- 'coz shower sex is pretty great, you know!
Talking about sex is just so sexy and sometimes even better than actually climaxing. Share your deepest darkest fantasies about wanting to experiment with role-playing or trying out a kink. You never know what this conversation leads to!
Sometimes, feeling younger is all that's needed to feel sexier. A night of just making out and exploring each other's bodies without actually going all the way is great. We all need some PG13 loving from time to time.
So, what's the plan for tonight?! ;)
