Give Your Sex Life a Boost With These Simple Everyday Habits 

Give Your Sex Life a Boost With These Simple Everyday Habits 

You may be surprised to know that spicing up your sex life doesn’t involve drawing warm bubble baths, lighting candles or dropping a trail of rose petals (although that wouldn’t hurt). In fact, simply incorporating these every day habits can lead to a better sex life with your partner. 

Here a list of everyday habits you should practice for a better sex life: 

Divide up the chores.   A recent survey points to a more robust sex life for couples that share in the chores such as cooking, dishwashing and grocery shopping together. It doesn’t sound very sexy but apparently sharing means caring and can be a big turn-on for women. 

Stop stressing.   Sex may relieve stress but de-stressing before having sex means better sex. Work, bills, health issues, family…the list is endless when it comes to triggers that raise our cortisol levels and block the libido we want. Whatever allows you brain dump and let go some of life’s stresses should happen before you get busy between the sheets. A light walk, an upper body workout, walking the dog or sipping on a glass of vino can be effective to unwinding. 

A better diet.   You are what you eat and this applies to your sex life as well. Certain foods can block the libido you want and need. Foods such as mint, coffee, diet drinks and sodas can screw with your screwing. Consider incorporating vitamins and supplements into your diet. Here are 11 foods that will boost your health and stamina. But before you consider changing up your diet, consult with your doctor first. 

Exercise.   Not only is regular exercise good for your body but it’s integral to your sex life as well. Consider working out at least 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes. In fact, try working out with your partner. Check out this list of exercises that every guy should do for better performance in bed. 

Consider your medications.  Anti-depressants high-blood pressure drugs have been linked to a lower libido. Consult with your physician about what medications you are taking any other options or alternative medications that work best for your body. 

Turn off the TV and turn up your sex life.  Multiple studies have shown that a TV in your bedroom can kill the mood. Television can be a big distraction from making love and that’s the last thing you want when you are trying to have a healthy sex life. If you must keep one in your bedroom, consider limiting what hours it is on. 

Lastly, if you think it’s more an emotional or commitment issue, consider seeking couples counseling. 

Prep and Tips Before Bringing Your Date or Girlfriend to Thanksgiving Dinner

Prep and Tips on Bringing Your Date or Girlfriend to Thanksgiving Dinner

Moving in together or leaving a toothbrush and a change of clothes at your girlfriend’s place may have seemed like the biggest leap in your relationship but it pales in comparison to that first major holiday. 

Are you sweating already thinking of the innapropriate jokes that your Uncle Mark will tell while the mashed potatoes are passed? And let’s not forget that your mother might bring up marriage and grandchildren again. 

RELAX…..because we have compiled some survival tips to bringing a date or your girlfriend to the first Thanksgiving feast. 

Prep time.  Before you hop a flight, or jump in the car have some time scheduled over a meal before you arrive. It could be a casual lunch of brunch but just make sure it happens before you find your place at the table. This not only allows downtime before she mets your family but some bonding time as well. 

Introduce your family before she meets them.  Without going to the dark side or getting too negative let her know that Uncle Mark may tell jokes about boobs or that your mom is not ready to let go of her son or a time table for grandkids. No matter who will drop the first offensive sentence, let her know that you’ve got her back and remind yourself that she most likely has a family very similar to this. 

Bring a gift.   Encourage her to bring flowers or a nice bottle of wine. This is where your knowledge of your dysfunctional family pays off. You don’t want her to bring something too personal so some guidance on your mom’s favorite flower is a nice touch. Or at least know which flowers she’s allergic to and hates. If you don’t know, ask your dad. 

Avoid the temptation to prep your family.  Maybe it’s crossed your mind to call your mom and ask her to tone down the questions about marriage and grandkids. DON’T. This could backfire in your face for many reasons but mostly for the ones you don’t want to think of such as “I’ll show him.” 

Check your drinking.  DO enjoy a few, a FEW glasses of wine or beer but keep your drinking in check. You don’t want to slip up while slurring. If you feel the need to party, slip off afterwards in celebration or defeat. 

Lastly, try to include your girlfriend or date. For instance, find commonalities between your sister’s yoga classes and the fact that your girlfriend never misses an opportunity to fall into child’s pose. Or maybe where she grew up was close to where Aunt Gene lived for 10 years. 

Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving! 

5 Really Random Things that are a Turn On for Women  

5 Really Random Things that are a Turn On for Women

Last week, I decided to have a Netflix and Chill night with my girlfriend and I was totally freaked out after she grabbed me right when I walked in the door. Nothing freaky about that outside of the fact that I hadn’t shaved in over a week and had more like a 10-o-clock shadow and I was wearing sweatpants and a plan white t-shirt. I also hadn’t showered since I left the gym 12 hours earlier.

Normally, I would work hard to get her in the mood. We are talking a hot shower, a close shave, a shirt (with at least one button) and some jeans. I might even meet her at the door with a glass of wine. I’ve even considered answering the door naked because that would drive me wild if she did.

Turns out, most women don’t want to know or see how it’s hangin’, according to studies. Here is a list of what actually turns on women and it’s not what you think. Like most things with women, it’s the polar opposite of what you expect it to be.

1. Hands—Yes, women do care about a man’s hands. In particular, they really care about the length of a man’s ring finger. If their ring finger is longer than their index finger they are more likely to get laid, according to one Men whose ring fingers are longer than their index fingers are seen as better bets by women, one study found. Small hands? Yup, you may have a harder time having sex.

2. Don’t shave—Putting your razor away for around 10-days (based on average growth rate in men) produces the right amount of stubble to drive her crazy. However, she still cares if its properly groomed, so don’t go Grizzly Adams. Here’s a handy guide for beard styles and grooming. https://manscapeblog.com/2017/07/18/summer-beard-style-guide-for-men-2017/

3. Scent of a man—ditch the heavy cologne or manly body wash. Women are more turned on by the smell of a combo of Good-n-Plenty candy and cucumber. However, here is a guide of what you should eat that would make guys smell attractive.

4. Timing is everything—believe it or not there is a better time of day to have sex. One study claims it’s 3:00pm, so if the mood strikes you late afternoon squeeze it in!

5. Be nice—if you ever needed motivation to volunteer for a charity this would be it. Women that witness men being kind to others or even furry creatures is a major turn-on.

11 Mistakes Every Guy Makes in the Bedroom

11 Mistakes Every Guy Makes in the Bedroom

Want to keep her happy between the sheets? We surveyed 100 drunk women during an extended happy hour and “went there.”  From sexual positions to mistakes to avoid in the bedroom, we’ve got the 411 on how to satisfy a woman.

  1. Don’t be a blow hard.     Avoid blowing so hard in her ear that you end up simulating hurricane-force winds. DO, keep it to a whisper.

2. Boobs are NOT chew toys.     Soft biting—YES…gnawing….NO! Follow her lead and nibble soft until you get more direction. 

3. No breaks.     You wouldn’t interrupt your workout our weight reps—the same applies to sex. Making love leaves no room for breaks. HOWEVER, like any other workout, consult your physician before pushing yourself too hard or beginning a new exercise program.

4. Scratchy face.     Facial hair is the latest manscaping trend and can be a big turn-on but make sure it’s properly groomed. Too much scratching in the nether regions can lead to chafing which will only hurt your partner and your sex life. Go clean shaven or opt for a beard cream or oil.  Here is a full summer guide to beards

5. Don’t squeeze the Charmin or ahem, breasts.    You don’t want to act like a teenager ogling his first set of boobs, so step up and take your time.

6. Don’t get tangled up.     Very few man can unhook a bra in just one flick of the wrist. Instead, encourage her to take it off slowly and go from there. Nothing brought on the biggest moments of laughter than shared stories of guys fumbling with bras, skirts, panties and lingerie.

7. Socks OFF.     It’s hard to remember when you’re in the moment to remove your socks, but make a mental note to slip those off first before removing your pants. Why? Because it looks ridiculous.

8. Heads UP.     Apparently, this was a big point of contention when surveyed. Guys, don’t push a girl’s head down. Nearly every women when asked absolutely HATED this move. It doesn’t work.

9. Slapping.     This applies to stomach slapping and slapping her bottom without notice.

10. Let foreplay play out.    It’s tempting to get down to business time, but if your foreplay game is going well, go with it. Rushing is a big turn-off.

11. Thanking her or uttering, I love you.    Fist off, unless she is a “working girl” practicing the world’s oldest profession avoid thanking her. If you did it right, it’s a mutual thank you. Second, nothing is creeper than a guy feeling like he has to say, I love you. If it’s genuine it’s creepy if it’s not, it’s insulting.

7 Sexy Things Women Do that are a Turn-On For Guys

woman-on-the-beach-14649887684NE

Believe it or not, the “duck face” lips are not as sexy to guys as they are to the girls making them. In fact, it’s the moments on this list where women are not even aware they are being sexy—they are just being women.

So, without further ado, I give you the 7 sexiest things women do that are a turn-on for guys.

  1. Putting on lipstick or lip balm using your rear-view mirror.   There is something about a woman applying lipstick. Doesn’t matter the color, gloss or if it’s just plain ol’ Chapstick.

2. Watching a women while she’s running or jogging.   I don’t care if it’s a treadmill or a sidewalk. A women that runs with her shoulders back, and muscular legs in motion is a sight to behold. It wreaks of confidence and natural stamina and physique.

3. Whenever a women is stretching.   This could apply to simple stretches before exercising or just arching their backs mid yawn.

4. Intelligence.   Yes, a smart woman that doesn’t have to show off her intellect but points out something very profound holds quite a bit of respect IMHO. Forget being a bimbo, sexy is all about an educated and intelligent woman.

5. Necklaces that define the nape of a woman’s neck.   The well-defined nape of a woman’s neck is an instant turn on and the right jewelry that brings that out is irresistible.

6. Tall women.   Any woman that is over say, 5 feet 8 inches tall whether it’s because of high heels or a god-given stature. 

7. An “innie” navel.   A slightly exposed navel or belly button is super sexy. Or even just a little of exposed skin whether deliberate or not. In fact, the less deliberate it is, the better.

Guys, what about you…what’s your biggest and less-obvious turn on in a woman?
