10 Tips - Keeping a Healthy Sex Life in Marriage
First of all, it’s important to understand that a healthy sex life is a normal part of any committed relationship. It’s not something you should feel bad or guilty about. Sex is a natural way for you and your partner to express love, build intimacy, and even release stress. It’s not just about the physical act; it’s also about the emotional relationship you have with your partner. That said, there are lots of ways to have a healthy sex life in marriage. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Make time for each other
It’s no secret that married couples have sex less often than they did when they were first dating. In fact, according to a recent survey, the average married couple has sex only 54 times a year, which is less than once a week. This is a far cry from the “honeymoon phase” when couples have sex several times a week, or possibly even every day. With busy work schedules and family obligations, it can sometimes be difficult to find time for sex. However, it is important to make the time because this is an essential part of every relationship. Try to schedule sex into your week and make it a priority. When you’re in a long-term relationship, the sex doesn’t just happen. You must make it a priority, and you must be intentional about it. Trust me; it’s worth it!
Be intimate without sex
Intercourse is only one form of intimacy or sexual expression. There are other ways to be intimate, such as kissing, cuddling, and touching. All of these intimacies should be done regularly for there to be a healthy sex life in marriage. Try mutual masturbation; it’s a pleasurable form of sexual expression that can be easily enjoyed by married couples.
If you and your partner are looking to spice up things in your bedroom, there are a few things you can do to make sex much more enjoyable. One way to add some excitement to sex is to be more creative. This can be anything from trying new positions to incorporating toys into your sex life or even having sex in different locations. It is also very important to focus on your partner’s pleasure. This means making an effort to please them in whatever way they enjoy, which can be anything from oral sex to simply paying attention to their body language during sex. If you’re not sure what they like, ask them! Communication is key in any relationship, and it’s especially important in the bedroom. Sex should be a fun and sensual experience for both of you, so don’t take it too seriously. Remember that there’s no right or wrong way to have sex, so just go with the flow and see what happens! If you feel like you are in a rut, mix things up a bit.
Set the mood
Start by making sure that you are both in a good mood. Perhaps prepare a candlelit dinner or run a bath for two. Use music and sexy lingerie; wear something with an open back…or open front. Just make sure that it is easy for your partner to remove. It’s important to keep the mood fun and light to ensure that you are both comfortable and that the atmosphere is inviting. Take your time and enjoy each other’s company. Start by caressing and kissing each other, or you could start it off by taking a shower together, or just spend some time cuddling and touching each other. Use massage oils or massage candles; make it adventurous!
Talk about sex
Many couples find it difficult to talk about sex, but it’s important to communicate. The conversation can be done in a fun way to avoid awkwardness. It will help you learn about one other’s sexual interests and attractions, provide information about how your relationship works and improve the level of intimacy. Talking about sex is a great way to get to know each other better while helping you to be more satisfied with your sexual activity, thus maintaining a healthy relationship.
The conversation doesn’t have to be all about sex, though. This is also an excellent opportunity to talk about any other issues or concerns that you may have; it’s an overall positive thing for both partners to express their needs and desires without shame or embarrassment. It’s okay to ask questions or express concerns. Actually, it’s not just okay it is crucial. It’s also okay to be curious about what your partner is interested in, sexually or otherwise. Sex is a normal part of life, and talking about it is a great way to learn more about your partner and your relationship.
Buy Sex Toys Together
Many people are afraid of buying sex toys for their spouses. They are afraid that the toys will be too kinky or that they’ll prefer the toys to actually having sex together. However, buying sex toys can be a great way to spice up your sex life. When shopping for sex toys together, you’re opening up a new world of possibilities for sexual exploration. You’re showing your spouse that you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make them happy. If you’re looking for less intimidating sex toys, start with some slippery lubricant or try a positioning aid or a couple’s kit.
Try new positions, locations, or even fantasies
Sex requires effort. If you don’t make an effort, your marriage can fall into a routine. This can be a bad thing because routines are tiring. Routines lead to boredom and a lack of interest in sex. This is why it is important to learn new methods to spice up your love life. Try new positions and locations, or talk about your sexiest, wildest fantasies. Let your partner take complete control. Be open to trying things that you never thought you’d do before. You might be surprised at how much of a turn-on it is for both of you.
Have A Date Night
A date night is one of the most important things you can do for your sex life. It doesn’t have to be a fancy night out on the town; it can be as simple as watching a movie together or going out for ice cream. The key is that you’re doing something fun and romantic together. When you do this on a regular basis, it helps to reinforce your emotional bond while also creating an atmosphere where sex is natural and expected, possibly even craved.
Take care of Yourself
Talk about any problems
If you are having difficulties with sexual activity (e.g., erectile dysfunction), don’t be afraid to talk about it with your spouse or a medical professional. There are often simple solutions available. Because sexual activity is such an important part of marriage, it is important to ensure that you feel good and stay active and healthy.
It's worth the effort
Sex is an important part of every healthy marriage. Not just for pleasure but because it strengthens your emotional and spiritual bond with your partner. Sex is a vital part of keeping a marriage strong and should not be ignored. Your sex life needs to be nurtured and cared for, just like any other part of the marriage. If both partners actually enjoy the sex and have fun with it, then it will naturally happen more regularly. So, it is crucial for both partners to put the effort in to please the other. This way, they do not view sex as a chore or an obligation that they just have to do. It will be viewed as an important part of their relationship that can be enjoyed together. Sex is more than just physical pleasure; it allows couples to bond in many ways.
