Sexual health is an integral part of overall health, well-being and quality of life. There are several issues that can affect your sex life — be it erection, low libido, lack of communication, and much more. It is also impacted with age, but that doesn’t mean you should give up the idea of having a great sex life.  

What’s important to understand is that you can do a lot to make your sex life super exciting. So without further ado, let’s understand how you can have an active and satisfying sex life

1. Self-confidence

The lack of self-confidence or confidence in your partner can affect your sex life. To boost your confidence, you need to educate yourself about sex, learn about your body and how it works. And not just that, you must also make conscious efforts to know about each other’s physical erotic zones, what turns you on, and how much stimulation you need. These little changes can help in a big way!

2. Take your time

This should be your utmost priority — it is important that you feel comfortable with your partner, and for that, it’s perfectly okay to take your time. Start having sexual communication with your partner, as it will make it easier for you to have a satisfying sex life. Talk openly and share your sexual desires and expectations.

3. Flexibility can help

Being flexible can enhance your sex life. If you have a flexible body, you can try any position as physical body strength plays an important role in sexual pleasure.

4. Adequate sleep

According to a study published in May 2015 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, just one hour of extra sleep per night increases the probability of a woman having sex with her partner by 14 percent. And lack of sleep can worsen your mood which may, in turn, decrease your sex drive.

5. Consume a healthy diet

Eating meats or other foods that contain specific amino acids could help improve your sex life. To have an active sex life, take care of your nutrition.

6. Use a lubricant

To make things more comfortable, try using a lubricant because vaginal dryness can be easily corrected with lubricating liquids and gels. But if a lubricant no longer works, then make sure to discuss it with your doctor.

7. Express affection

Even if you feel tired, tense, or upset, try and engage in kissing and cuddling with your partner to maintain your emotional and physical bond. Practice touching each other, and it will help you to re-establish physical intimacy.

8. Do kegel exercises

Kegel exercises strengthen the pubococcygeus (PC), muscles of your pelvic floor. They do it by increasing blood circulation in the pelvic region. Strong PC muscles result in stronger sensations during arousal and orgasms.

So, follow these tips to increase intimacy in your relationship!
