Are you are entering 2016 armed with an exciting list of resolutions and goals for the new year? Most people want to get healthier with each coming year, with ideas like losing a few pounds, or hitting the gym more. Those are worthy goals, but what about your sexual health?
Instead of tasking yourself same old thing year after year, how about a few resolutions that involve getting naked, screaming orgasms, and experiencing out-of-this-world connections—be it with yourself or a partner.
We think it was the noted dirty-minded genius, Benjamin Franklin who said, “Practice does make perfect, especially when it comes to doing the horizontal mambo,” but that could just be wishful thinking. Either way, here’s some easy-to-follow practices to practice. It all starts with the idea: 2016 will be the most pleasure-filled year yet!
The Year of More Positions
Sex is about more than just about getting off. You can experience an incredible physical and emotional connection, so why not spend more time in 2016 exploring that connection with some new positions. Now, you don’t have to be an circus acrobat or even in great physical shape to be inventive—you just need some willingness, participation, and of course, the Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo. Used together or separate, these Shapes can provide you with the added support and height needed to traverse every inch of your lover. No idea where to begin? Don’t worry, we a few ideas to get you started and will hopefully inspire a few of your own.
The Year of More Booty
2015 was the year of the ass, but 2016 is going even deeper—it’s the year of the anal sex! Every where you look, from Vogue magazine, to Huffington Post, to an episode of Girls, the gloriest of holes has made its way into mainstream consciousness. Often referred to as ‘the black licorice of sex,’ crossing the butt boundary with a partner can be really exciting, and a major bonding moment.
It’s not just fun for the ladies—anal sex toys for both genders have penetrated the market, from the LELO Hugo to the Fun Factory Anal Beads. So strap in, ladies, or rather strap on. There’s plenty of of satisfaction for everyone.
The Year of More Focus
The bedroom is one of the best locales to completely let your freak flag fly! But that’s pretty hard to do when electronic devices are constantly pinging from text, emails, and social media alerts. That’s why, we think, it’s important to have a space that is dedicated to exploring the more passionate pursuits. In 2016, put down the phone, walk away from the iPad, turn off the television, and make your bedroom into a sacred space for just the two of you.
Really, the only electronics that ought to be in the bedroom are the type that buzz, swirl, and vibrate. If you’ve never tried one before, there’s no need to be intimidated. You can easily start off with the purchase a small vibrator like the We-Vibe Tango, which is made just for the clitoral stimulation. For those that want to experience a blended orgasm, get your hands on the LELO Ina Wave. But for couples who are already well equipped, we suggest venturing toward the heavy artillery like the Axis Magic Wand Toy Mount and Magic Wand Cordless Vibe.
The Year of More Close Ups
Everybody’s doing it, so why not make 2016 the year you embrace watching porn together? There are a lot of redeeming qualities to porn. 1. You don’t have to leave the comfort of your home to do it, and 2. it’s a great way to explore your sexuality with someone else. Since talking about sex can sometimes feel awkward or strange, watching x-rated material with your lover can really bridge the gap of communication, especially if there’s something that turns you on that you’ve been to shy to bring up. It’s also a great tool to gauge your partner’s reaction to certain sexual experiences in a slightly removed way. From gang bangs, to girl on girl, it may not be what you expected, but you’ll learn something, which makes the whole dinner and dirty movie thing worthwhile.
But why stop with just watching when you can be a participant? Your own sex tape will be a thousand times sexier. Just remember, don’t upload it to the iCloud! If you’re a bit shy about being filmed in the buff, you can start by taking a few sexy photos of yourself and sending them to your partner when he or she is least expecting them. The best advice, however, is making sure the right mood is set before rolling. People tend to freeze up and get self-conscious in front of a camera, and now, suddenly naked, which can result in a very awkward home video. The more you’re warmed up to the idea, the more comfortable it will feel—and how sexy is that? If you and your partner are feeling adventurous, try creating a masterpiece by filming yourself in every positions. Then, watch yourself have sex and have sex while you watch yourself. It’s a porn starring you!
The Year of More Learning
Your never too old, or too young to learn new tricks. For 2016, resolve to master something sexual. Want to prolong an orgasm, learn how to tie up your lover, give a mind-blowing blow job? Then take an erotic workshop. From tantric sex, to Shibari classes, to oral sex tips and tricks, check out your local sex shop. Most shops offer a wide variety of workshops geared toward making your sex life better. Plus, taking a class can hone your love skills and boost your confidence in bed. Don’t forget to take notes, get close, and participate. You never know what you’ll learn.
The Year of More Exploration
Make 2016 about revealing your alter-ego. For this resolution, you don’t have to go all 50 Shades of Grey with the red room of pain. Just sit down with your partner and share your fantasy, or a fetish, or a kink—anything thing that turns you on. To start, set a few ground rules with each of you sharing one while the other just listens. Feel free to go anywhere in your imagination and allow our partner to take the journey with you. Take things up a notch, and resolve to try one of those fantasies out. Since trust is an essential part to making things run smoothly, this resolution works best with a lover who is truly comfortable with communication. When you open yourself up to sharing fantasies, it’s basically playtime for adults.

Just Do It—More
The cornerstone of any good resolution is execution. If taking classes, or making or watching porn, or paddling your partner all seems to be a bit too much, then let this new year be about just having more sex. Whether you get freaky once a week or daily, be sure to ramp up that number. You will benefit from more action as it will inspire you to get creative every time you make love. You’re doing it often enough, so ask yourself: how can I make it even better? This year, work with your sexual partner to have the best sex of your life!
With kids, work, and the countless other distractions of life, it can be easy to put sex on the back burner. Don’t! This year make sex a priority—even if you have to schedule it. When the time comes, no excuses, and just do it. As soon as it starts to heat up you’ll forget how tired you were anyway.
Make a resolution you’ll actually stick to this year. Make 2016 the year of great sex!
