Tips to Enhance Intimacy in your Relationship

Do you dare to be bold and expand your horizons when it comes to your sex life? Let’s face it – sex is something to celebrate! It helps reduce stress and lets us feel more connected to our partner. Increasing intimacy often comes down to feeling loved and appreciated. Simple love gestures can boost the romance in your relationship such as doing something spontaneous or unexpected for your parter. Holding hands while watching a movie and whispering in her/his ear how much you love that person or tidying up the bedroom and leaving a rose on the bed can definitely show your partner how much you care and more likely you are interested in having sex.

Tips to Enhance Intimacy in your Relationship

Robin Milhausen, sexual health and relationship expert, reveals the following tips to kick it up a notch and add a little spice to your routine, while enhancing pleasure and intimacy in your relationship. 

1.  Dirty talk, clean space

There’s nothing like hotel or vacation sex. Having sex in a new environment can help us feel more spontaneous or adventuresome. A few times a year, my husband and I book a hotel room for a getaway trip to enhance our sex life, but also to spend quality time with each other away from the kids. Date nights are also on our monthly agenda. But time and money for a holiday aren’t always available. Recreate vacation sex by making your bedroom your sexual sanctuary. Remove clutter, invest in good sheets and set the mood. Research suggests women, in particular, have a hard time getting aroused in a dirty and messy place. If you want to make the night extra memorable, introduce a vibrator for her like the Trojan™ Power Wand Vibrations Massager. Let the talk be dirty, and the room be clean – your sex life will thank you. 

2.  Focus on the sensations

One of the latest trends in sex therapy is mindfulness. Often during a sexual encounter our minds wander to tasks at work, issues with the kids, and more. And when you aren’t attuned to the pleasurable sensations of sex, it’s more difficult to feel connected to your partner and to experience orgasm. When you feel a distracting thought come on, notice it and let it go. Purposefully focus on the sensations you are experiencing all over your body. To amplify the sensation and experience further pleasure, try Trojan™ Groove™ Condoms. With extra lubrication and textured channels, these condoms will provide continued satisfaction. 

3.  Add lube! Always add lube!

Lube makes everything better!  In a recent midlife study by SIECCAN and Trojan™, participants who manually stimulated their partners with lube were more likely to rate the act as very pleasurable than if lube was not used.  Sex of all kinds is better when slippery – plus it’s fun. The new Trojan™ Chain Reaction™ Lubricant uses a special blend of intensifiers that release a variety of sensations during use for a unique experience every time! Spontaneity at its finest.

  1. I think a nice romantic night is just being together. Have a nice night out – walk on the beach, or sharing an ice cream. Doesn’t have to be expensive. Just get away from the hustle and bustle of the home..

  2. My tips for a romantic night with your spouse is do it as often as possible you don’t need wine and candles it’s all about time together.

  3. Have a dinner date at home. Ditch the devices, get dressed in your best evening wear, light some candles, put on soft music and enjoy a romantic candlelight dinner for two (have your fave meal).

  4. My tip for date night is no talking about the kids. It’s actually really hard for us to do that, but since our date night’s are for us to be romantic and have time together as a couple, we leave the school, clubs and play date talk for another time.

  5. My romantic tip would be to plan in advance and surprise your significant other. This adds some spontaneity and makes it a little spicier for both of you! Have the whole house decked out in candles, order food in advance, and greet them at the door in lingerie!

  6. Turn off your cell phones, computers and ignore your home phone and doorbell. Focus on your spouse and listen and enjoy each others company.
