Time to Make Your Sex Resolutions

The beginning of a new year is when many of us decide to set some new goal for the months ahead—something that will make us better people, improve our health or well being, possibly even change our lives. This year, why not make a New Year’s resolution that focuses on improving your relationship—your sexual relationship with your partner. Odds are much stronger that a goal that brings you pleasure will be a lot easier to keep than one that requires you to hit the gym or eat more veggies.

We’ve compiled our top three suggestions to consider for your sex resolution. Don’t like any of these? Feel free to create your own plan to focus on your sexual health in the new year:

  1. Start a Conversation About Sex. Found that over time you and your partner aren’t talking about sex the way you used to (or at all)? If this has happened in your relationship, a good goal for the new year is to incorporate more talk about sex. Whether that means engaging in some dirty talk to spice up your lovemaking, or simply a frank conversation about changes you would like to make in your sex life, connecting verbally may be the kick start the two of you need to make the year ahead the best it has ever been for you in the bedroom.
  2. Stay In Touch. Another common mistake couples make is thinking that sex has to be all or nothing. Stoking the fires with regular touching can make all the difference in the quality of your sex life. While there is definitely something to be said for quantity, when it comes down to it, our busy lives can make this a challenge. Creating an emotional and physical connection should be your priority, and one of the best ways to do so is by simple gestures such as holding hands, snuggling in bed or sharing massages. Take the time to explore your partner’s whole body, and see if your sex life doesn’t reap the rewards.
  3. Stoke The Fires With Romance and Adventure. Relationships require work, let’s be honest. In the beginning it is a lot easier to be romantic and adventurous as you learn about one another and discover each other’s likes and dislikes. As your partnership progresses, and routines are created, recapturing that spontaneity can be a challenge. Strive in the year ahead to make more of an effort to engage your partner by remembering the small things they like and appreciate. Making new memories by embracing things out of your comfort zone, whether it’s simply a romantic weekend away or incorporating a sex toy in your bedroom, is a great way to renew your relationship, too.
