The How-To Lounge: Spicing Up the Mundane

One of the most common couples' complaints is not having enough time for intimacy. In response, people always offer a rather silly solution: Set aside a special “sexy” time. This may work for some people, but personally I think the idea of setting a sex schedule is mildly depressing. I think it’s far sexier to turn boring life obligations into intense foreplay. To check out some fun suggestions,

  • Exhaustion can really put a damper on a person's mood, so you have to beat it. Instead of rushing to get the dishes done and the kitchen cleaned after dinner, head on over to bed. You don’t even have to get in it to enjoy a little nooky. The dishes aren’t going anywhere, but your mood just might.
  • Cleaning isn’t typically fun or sexy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be. Don’t worry: I’m not going to suggest vacuuming in the buff — though please give it a go if you’re so daring — but I do think that giving him some positive reinforcements while he’s cleaning will liven things up. Every time he bends over, give his toosh a squeeze. Or each time either of you finishes a task, give each other a swoonworthy kiss!
  • There’s nothing quite as frustrating as getting stuck in some killer weekend traffic. Often you can find yourself frustrated, angry, and ignoring your significant other. Use that time to engage in some serious dirty talk; he won’t see it coming from a mile away. Sure, you’re not in public per se, but it can still feel pretty exciting.
  • When you’re at the market, pick up something totally decadent but welcomed in the bedroom: whipped cream, berries, a luscious bar of dark chocolate, or a pint of dulce du leche ice cream. Then make use of it before, or even while, you put away the groceries.

Keeping the romance alive is all about having fun, so make every moment a good one!

"If I told you how many times I've been poked or humped while bending over to throw something away or whatever, it would make y'all sick." Me too Masqueraded_Angel!! It happens *every time* I walk past him :D Not that I'm complaining lol It's nice to know he still finds me attractive and still wants me after 5 1/2 years!

If I told you how many times I've been poked or humped while bending over to throw something away or whatever, it would make y'all sick. lol! It's funny and cute sometimes, but then if he catches me in a bad mood he'll get a good swat for it. :D Me on the other hand...well, I don't do it nearly as much as he does.

My fiance always tries to cop a feel when I try to clean or do things around the house. He does it so much that it's actually the opposite of a turn on for me! I try to get him back for it, but he likes it...of course! It still happens fairly spontaneously for us even after 3 1/2 years. But we do try to get in some cuddle/play time every night so it keeps sex on the brain for us.

I can't do anything around the house without practically being molested every 30 minutes or so. I get in a grab/rub when I'm walking by him through out the day/night as long as the kids aren't around!

If my boyfriend were cleaning the house, and I followed him around grabbing his ass, he would think I'd been abducted.

haha-well that makes me feel good, cause we already do most of this stuff, its pretty much gaurenteed that if I bend over for anything, he will be grabbing my butt...if hes cooking dinner I will come up behind him and grab if that was tmi)or just put my arms around him and kiss him..and he usually does the same when Im cooking. on saturday we had a super lazy day and just sat around playing video games pretty much all day...but for some reason (im not really sure how it started, it was like we just read eachothers minds..ha) we stopped right in the middle, went up stairs for some woohoo and then just came back down and started playing video games again. ha...we're nerds Its also pretty much a given that any time we go the grocery store I will find something suggestive, even if we dont buy it it still gets the wheels turnin'. :)
