The holiday season has ended, we’ve all bought new calendars, and our guilt over our celebration gluttony has begun to sink in. Yes, it’s New Year’s resolution time. Obviously, over the years, we all have made pledges for the upcoming months that fell to the wayside. Whether it was because the gym was too crowded, ice cream tastes better than salads, or Facebook stalking is way too much fun, our resolutions were abandoned before Valentine’s Day.
We at Liberator know this struggle, and we’ve found the solution to following through with our best-laid plans. We’re making our resolutions something that we actually want to do and will stick with. We’re going to make 2014 the best year we’ve ever had in the bedroom - and we think you should join us in our quest.
A year of amazing sex is not just about having a good time (although that certainly doesn’t hurt,) but it is also about health and happiness both physically and emotionally. After all, sex has been known to lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes, decrease high blood pressure, reduce depression, relieve headaches, and improve sleep quality. In addition to these health benefits, sex also opens up a dialogue between you and your partner. Make a plan with us to fulfill these resolutions, and you will be a happier and healthier you by 2015.
This year, resolve to…
… have more quickies.
We know that your calendar is packed, and your sex life with your partner can sometimes take a backseat to work or life events. Even when you have time to have sex, you might be exhausted from the day’s schedule. This year, take fifteen minutes between those daily tasks and ravish your partner (or yourself). While a quickie might seem like a temporary fix versus a passionate night dedicated to lovemaking, a speedy romp can be a positive addition to your lovemaking. The more often a couple has sex, the stronger it sparks and fuels their desire for sex. This means that those quickies are not only injecting variety into your sex life, but increasing your lust for your partner as well.
...focus on your partner.
We’re all guilty of being selfish at times, so this year let your special someone know they are adored by showering them with attention without asking for anything in return. Make your partner’s pleasure a priority though a long massage or a night of sensational oral. Not only will you experience the immense satisfaction of your partner’s happiness, but the connection will translate over to when you two are intimate together.
...ask for what you want.
Communication and trust are two key elements of a sexual relationship, and they can often be the hardest to cultivate. Often we believe we must be a mind reader to be a good lover or that our desires will be rejected if we ask for them because they are “inappropriate.” We might not know how to phrase our needs properly or feel silly saying the words out loud. The most important thing to remember is that a strong and healthy relationship is defined by two partners who desire to make the other happy. Your partner will get joy from seeing you enjoy yourself, so speak up and let him or her know what feels good and what you find exciting. The more direction you give, the more confident your partner will feel and the more pleasure you will receive. If you are feeling shy about vocalizing your intimate desires, try sending your partner a naughty text to start the conversation.
...check an item off your sexual bucket list.
We all have sexual experiences that we’ve wanted to try, but were too timid to take the plunge. This year, commit to learning something about yourself and growing with your partner by taking on that new adventure. Any worthwhile discovery doesn't come without facing a few challenges, and, even if it ends up not being your thing, you’ll have something to giggle about with your friends. Whether it is attempting a new position, engaging in a threesome, trying your hand at sex outdoors, or experimenting with a new toy, this is the year to take a deep breath and give it a go.
...to enjoy your sex life to the fullest.
All of these pledges will absolutely make 2014 a year to remember in your bedroom, but we’re going to take it one step further. We’re going to take our sex lives from great to amazing by enjoying every minute of it. We’re going to relish the quickies and the all-nighters. We’re going to set aside time for foreplay and experiment with new positions. We’re going to talk dirty to our partners, tie each other up, and just have fun exploring each other’s bodies. We’re going to masterbate to learn more about our own sexual appetites, and bring that knowledge into our relationships. We at Liberator feel that sex and the connection that grows from it is one of the best parts of life, and we’re excited to share this joy with you. So embrace passion, explore your desires, and live it up in 2014!
