1. Watch the worst-possible T.V. show together
Surely, there’s nothing more romantic than a ‘Netflix and chill’ date. But guess what? There’s nothing “sexier” than choosing the most boring show possible while you’re at it.
Still can’t figure out what’s sexy about it? Well, a survey conducted by the British company VoucherCodesPro, revealed that couples, who watched television together in their bedroom had more sex than those who didn’t. The real catch though, was in the other revelation from the survey: The fact that watching boring shows is what brought real entertainment in bed because, d-uh! Sex over boredom—any day!
2. Stare bluntly at his…
Picture! A study conducted in 2010 found that staring at your partner’s picture for 30 seconds and more can turn you on and how! This is simply because doing so can make your brain produce the dopamine hormone, which in turn can increase your libido.
3. Help him get rich
A study, published in the International Journal of Manpower, revealed that men, who earned more also indulged in sex more often. With no worries about paying bills occupying their mind, sex is what’s on their minds instead.
4. Plan a pre-sex adventure
Ladies, it’s time to get adventurous—even before getting between the sheets. According to a study, published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, indulging in adrenaline-kicking activities like zip-lining, paragliding, bungee jumping, etc., can make your heart beat the way it beats when you’re sexually aroused.

5. Throw petrol on him

6. Make him sweat first
Lock him up in a room with no AC/fan, make him workout hard, throw him into a sauna room—do whatever it takes to make him sweat before having sex as according to a study, published in The Journal of Neuroscience, women are more turned on by the smell of a man’s sweat as it reduces the levels of cortisol, the stress hormone in their body. Gross, but true.
7. Get friendly with other men
According to a study, published in the Journal of Comparative Psychology, women, who have more male friends indulge in sex a lot more than women with fewer male friends.
Blame it on men viewing those friends as their “sex rivals” or simply the resulting fear of infidelity by their girl, good sex is all you get in return.
Think no further and get going!
