Spring is right around the corner, so you’re not alone if you’ve been in the mood to reboot your life and improve your surroundings lately. There’s no time like spring to take stock of what’s really working, get rid of what’s not, and put a few new solutions into play.
However, there’s no reason your spring reboot has to stop at deep cleaning your home or spending more time outdoors. Spring is an excellent time to refresh your sex life, as well, whether you’re with someone right now or on your own. Here are some great suggestions to start with.
1. Plan a little getaway
Although pandemic-related restrictions mean travel should still be approached with caution, there are few things as useful for your sex life as spending a little time away from home. Whether you’re currently partnered up or not, a relaxing weekend away at a cozy little bed and breakfast somewhere could work wonders for your sense of wellbeing and your libido.
If you’ve been cooped up at home, as so many have been this past year, a change of scenery and a relaxing view will really do you good. The spirit of vacation also takes the pressure off to do something “productive” with your time every second of the day, as well, making it much easier to feel sexy and get back in touch with your intimate self.
2. Treat yourself to a new toy
When was the last time you replaced your vibrator or otherwise added something new to your sexual repertoire? If it’s been a while, there’s no time like springtime to explore what’s out there and treat yourself to something incredible to play with. Although you’ve got your options open as far as choices, it’s impossible to go wrong with something versatile, powerful, and high in quality.
The new Versa T vibrating bullet by FemmeFunn is a terrific example. It’s powerful, portable, and wonderfully versatile. Enjoy it on your own, bring it into the bedroom to try with your partner, or take it on the go “just in case.” Experience the Versa T on its own or slip it into the included pleasure sleeve for even more sexy fun.
3. Talk shop with your partner
When you’re in a relationship, it’s all too easy to wind up in a bedroom rut, even if you’re blissfully happy together. Communication is a natural antidote to sexual stagnancy, as well as the best way to keep things from eventually getting stale if they’re already going wonderfully.
If you’re not in the habit of talking to your partner about sex, get started this spring. If you already talk about sex, consider bringing up some new possibilities for discussion – a pet fantasy you’d like to explore or a new type of toy you’ve wanted to try together. If you’re currently flying solo, try using journaling or meditation to touch on ways to serve your inner sexual being better.
4. Give your bedroom a refresh
If a little home spring cleaning is also on your schedule this year, consider putting a little extra thought into things when you get to your bedroom. Even if you’re someone who often ventures outside the bedroom when it’s time to get down and dirty, it still really pays to make sure home base inspires the right kinds of thoughts.
Replace those heavy winter comforters with some sensuous new bedding that practically begs you to linger in bed while feeling sexy. Choose colors, textures, and patterns that feel lush and passionate. Stock your nightstand drawers with must-have items like lube, favorite toys, or steamy erotica to enjoy on your own or with a partner.
5. Try a makeover for your intimate areas
A year in quarantine has found a lot of people letting things slide in the landscaping department. Now’s the perfect time to not only get back on the ball when it comes to intimate grooming but to try something new for a change, maybe. Do you usually rock a full bush or settle for a quick trim? Embrace the spirit of spring, and try a landing strip or a full Brazilian. Are you already used to going completely bare? Try letting things grow in a bit. Whatever gets you excited is fair game.
Then take things a step further and clean out your lingerie drawer. Get rid of old items that don’t fit well or are overdue for replacement. Replace them with fabulous new options that make you feel like a million dollars when you wear them. Remember, you don’t need a partner to benefit from choices like these. It’s perfectly OK to make such changes just for you.
6. Embrace body positivity
Extreme dieting and struggling to fit outdated beauty concepts are out. Body positivity and embracing the true meaning of health are in! It’s one thing to want to be more body positive when it comes to your physique, though. Putting the principles into practice can be a lot more challenging in practice, but there’s no time like spring to make a positive change in the right direction.
Start by ridding your social media feeds, reading list, and streaming queues of anything that promotes an unhealthy relationship with your body or otherwise makes you feel bad about yourself. (This includes any accounts belonging to exes or frenemies you might still be following.) Replace what you remove with things that make you happy and encourage a positive self-image.
Make sure your fitness routine is focused on celebrating your body and making it stronger, as opposed to losing weight, as well. Get rid of your scale or make it a point to weight yourself less often. Instead, use the way your body feels and performs as a guide when pursuing your goals. You’ll be feeling stronger, better, and sexier before you know it.
Of course, these are just a few suggestions to get your creativity flowing. Add as many as you like to your sexual spring cleaning to-do list. Then fill it out with some steamy suggestions of your own that get you excited for spring.
