Spice Up Your Long-Term Relationship

When you’re in a long-term relationship, things can get too comfortable. Before you know it, you’re lounging in sweatpants from your college days every night and the last time you gave or got oral sex was probably right around the same time you bought those sweatpants.

Luckily, boosting your sex life is easier than ever before. With the enthusiasm to feel that excitement again – and a visit to your local adult store – these sex tips will take you back to the wild sex you probably didn’t even realize you were missing.

  1. Explore new positions. One of the easiest ruts to fall into when you’re in a long relationship is to find sex positions that seem to work for you, and then concentrate on just those. One of the easiest ways to spice things up is to try a new position. Try the Sex! Scratch Tickets for instant ideas, or check out one of our many sex games.
  1. Keep surprising each other. Sexy surprises are vital for keeping a long-term relationship from becoming stagnant. Even people who don’t necessarily like surprises can enjoy sexy ones. If you don’t generally sext, try sending your partner a discreet sexy photo or racy comment when it’s least expected. Another sexy surprise is to go about doing normal things around the house while either completely naked or wearing some revealing erotic lingerie.
  1. Do everything but have sex. People in long-term relationships typically fall into a routine, which often means skipping foreplay. To boost your sex life, bring back the foreplay and you just might find erogenous zones you didn’t even know existed. And don’t forget massage oils for sensual massages and rediscover each other, one touch at a time.
  1. Experiment with adult sex toys. If you’re in a long-term relationship, chances are good that your partner knows about your adult sex toys; but if not, now is the time to introduce them by going shopping together. Try out a rabbit to delight her clitoris and for him, a c-Ring is a good introduction to enhancing sex with adult toys.  But for the ultimate sex toy for couples, it will be tough to find a more exciting experience than the one provided by the We Vibe 4 Plus, which now comes with an app that helps you create vibration playlists and even control the sensations remotely!
  1. Try a little role-play. With role-play, you can get as easy or as complicated as you want. Try pretending to be strangers, meeting for the first time at a bar, and tap into that powerful lust that makes new relationships so exciting. This is where costumes come into play…who doesn’t like a naughty schoolgirl? And be sure to check out our complete Fifty Shades of Grey line of props.
  1. Watch erotica together. Even if you’ve taken being comfortable together to another level, you might not have felt relaxed enough to watch erotic films together. One of the easiest and most fun ways for couples to break through their comfort zone is by watching an erotic film together. You’ll probably learn a few things about your partner and yourself in the process.

Give these tips a try – you never know what you might like – and you’ll really never know until you try!
