A healthy sex life is almost too easy – there’s no need to get totally weird in the bedroom if you don’t want to. Here are the seven (totally achievable) sex habits of genuinely happy couples.
1. Make time for it. Happy couples know that sex is an important part of their relationship so sex isn’t a habit they let slide. Maybe they aren’t going at it every five minutes like they were in the early stages but they still regularly set aside a couple of hours for sexy time.
2. Be honest about whether you’re in the mood or not. If you’re not in the mood but you’re doing it anyway, believe us – your partner can tell. And that’s probably worse than just not doing anything at all. People in a strong partnership will tell each other if they don’t want it right now but promise to make time for it later.
3. Be willing to at least try new things. Not all sexy things are appealing – some are downright ‘HELL NO’. But if what your partner wants isn’t completely outlandish or uncomfortable, there’s no harm in trying something different every now and again. For great sex, both partners should be willing to step a little bit outside of their comfort zone once in a while.
4. Respect what your partner doesn’t want, too. In a happy partnership, nobody’s being forced to do anything. They can say, without any fear of their partner being offended/angry/annoyed, that they’re not into something. Also, they’ll say when they are into it. This makes sex a lot less stressful and a lot more pleasurable all around. Honesty, people!
5. Make a move if you want to. When happy couples are in the mood, they go for it. No point sitting there wondering if your partner feels the same way. If they’re feeling frisky, they act on it without shame.
6. Believe in your sexiness. All you need to do for a great sex life is believe, without a doubt, that your partner is sexually attracted to you. That means no hiding, no covering and definitely no embarrassment. Just a really good time.
7. Be genuinely excited to have sex! The happiest couples don’t see sex as a chore – it’s a hobby. It’s something both partners genuinely want to do, because it brings them closer and it’s, you know, a lot of fun. That’s really all there is to it.
