No matter how much you're into a person, sex can get a little boring after a while. It's human nature to fall into a comfortable routine. Unfortunately, routines can quickly become monotonous. This is why it's important to change things up every once in a while. To keep your woman happy, it pays to always be on the lookout for new things to try in bed for her.
If you're looking to reinvigorate your sex life, why not do everything possible to make sex amazing for your lady? If she's happy, that probably means you will be, too. Curious how to inject some new life into your bedroom antics? Start by trying out one of these 10 new things to try in bed for her.
Women's magazines are chock full of advice on how to give a better blow job. Everything from tips for improving their technique to fun ways to make BJs more exciting. By contrast, you hear considerably less about pleasing a woman with oral sex.
This is because men simply don't go down on their partners as much as women do. According to a Canadian study that surveyed nearly 900 college students, 63 percent of men said they received oral sex recently. Among women, the number was just 44 percent.
Considering that just 18 percent of women can achieve orgasm through intercourse alone? It's about time for men to get busy down south. Oral sex puts the focus completely on her. So it's a great way to show her you're committed to making sure she's satisfied.
Many guys assume their girl will automatically say no to anal sex. However, you might be surprised just how much she's on board with the idea. In one study, 13 percent of women said they'd recently engaged in anal sex. And more than 36 percent said they have had anal sex at least once in their lifetime. They concluded, "Women of all ages and ethnicities engage in [heterosexual anal sex], at rates higher than providers might realize."
If she's new to anal, make sure you talk about it first. You definitely don't want to spring it on her out of the blue. Give her time to think about it and prepare. If she's game, you could both enjoy a whole new sexual experience.
Women love to be swept up into a fantasy. They might be perfectly content with you in the streets while harboring a secret desire for Christian Grey in the sheets.
If you're willing to experiment with role play, you can make her fantasies a reality. Keep in mind that she might be reluctant to talk openly about her most deeply seated desires. If she's shy about divulging her fantasies, try sharing some of yours first.
You can also make suggestions. For example, do you love the idea of experimenting with domination and submission? Ask her if she's willing to let you assume the dom role to her submissive. You can have fun with light bondage and spanking. Start slow and then gradually ramp things up if she seems to get turned on when you role play.
Also known as temperature play, ice play can bring new life to a stale bedroom routine. It's also cheap and easy to do. All you need is ice and a willing partner.
To try ice play, simply put some ice cubes into a bowl and stash it within easy reach. You might want to break up any larger pieces so you have a variety of sizes.
When you're ready, gently glide a piece of ice over her skin. Aim for her most sensitive areas, including her belly, chest, mouth, and clitoris. Just be careful to keep the ice moving, as you don't want to cause her any discomfort. Her body heat should melt smaller pieces quickly, which can add to the pleasurable sensations.
It's well-established that the majority of women require more than just penetration to orgasm. Foreplay is important—and for most women, it doesn't last long enough.
Don't speed through foreplay and race toward the main event. Instead, slow things down and really take your time setting the stage.
According to a study at Indiana University, over half of female respondents said they preferred a slower build-up to penetration. Keep in mind what was said in a Forbes summary of the study. "More than half the women in the study said that spending time to build arousal, having a partner who knows what they like and emotional intimacy contributed to better orgasms."
A little dirty talk can go a long way. The next time you're in an intimate setting, try whispering all the things you love about her. Describe the parts of her body that turn you on the most. Be descriptive and detailed.
You can also turn filthy talk into foreplay by starting it through text. When she's at work, try sending her little explicit messages about what you'd like to do to her later.
If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can even try instructing her to do naughty things. You can ask her to remove her panties and place them in her purse. Or have her head into the office bathroom and send you a sexy pic.
Science has shown that kissing can do wonders for your relationship and even your health. One study states that kissing causes the brain's reward center to release the "feel good" chemical oxytocin. This is the same chemical that promotes bonding between humans.
Even better, the release of oxytocin can actually lower blood pressure, reduce stress levels, and encourage healing in the body. People who kiss often may also experience better mental health.
Sounds like a pretty good reason to get your smooch on, right? If she asks why you're suddenly all about the make-out session, just tell her it's good for her health.
Plenty of women love to be dominated in bed, but it can also be fun to let the woman take charge. When she's in the driver's seat, she can tell (and show) you exactly what she wants.
You can let her take control by having her describe what she likes and dislikes. You can also encourage her to get on top, so she can control the pace and pressure of intercourse. For women, this can be an empowering position that allows them to dictate how long sex lasts.
You can crank up the heat in the bedroom—or anywhere—by doing the deed in front of a mirror. If you have a large wall mirror, maybe try taking it down and leaning it vertically against the wall. This way, both of you can get a full view of the action.
Go for positions that let you make plenty of eye contact. You can try doggy style or simply position yourself behind her with both of you on your knees. Explore her body from behind so that your hands are visible. That way, you both can watch as you run them up and down her arms, torso, and legs.
The desire for cuddling is usually associated with women. However, research shows that men need and want to cuddle, too. In one study, men who regularly cuddled with a partner were three times happier than those who didn't.
The same study found men and women who reported frequent touching, kissing, and hugging said their sex lives were satisfying.
Cuddling may not be as inherently sexy as other new things to try in bed for her. But it can make a big difference in your relationship and your sex life. Instead of rolling over and snoring, gather her close and spend some time holding each other after sex. It's good for your health and your long-term couple's goals.
As the old saying goes, variety is the spice of life. New moves can also add some spice to a bedroom routine that's become complacent. One of the best new things to try in bed for her? Simply asking her what novel ideas she'd like to experiment with. You might be surprised to discover that her fantasies mesh well with yours. If you make a consistent effort to keep things fresh, sex will always feel new and exciting.
