Bedroom sex makeover step 1: buy a lock
How can you get down and dirty if you can’t let loose? To ditch the muffled love sessions you need to buy a lock for your bedroom. If you don’t want to damage your doorway you can buy temporary bedroom locks. Or if you are prepared to commit to your new, barricaded boudoir you can opt for a mortice latch. These locks are perfect for internal doors and are relatively cheap. Plus you can still use your handle. Once you’re safe in the knowledge that no-one will walk in when you are in some of your most intimate positions, you’ll be able to venture above the sheets and explore some more exotic positions.
Bedroom sex makeover step 2: get the scent
To make your bedroom perfect for sex you need to think about how it smells. Smell is one of the most powerful senses and if you can get your room smelling seductive your chance of getting more sex will increase massively. To turn guys on, you should invest in some vanilla scented candles. Vanilla is a natural libido booster, which calms men and reduces their inhibitions. Light the candles at least 15 minutes before you go to bed to make sure that the room is fully scented. To turn your lady on, you should look to buy calming scents, like lavender. By de-stressing your girl, you will ensure that the stress hormone, cortisol, is reduced. This hormone is terrible for your love life as it lowers women’s libidos. So beat the stress and calm your girl with a lavender linen spray applied to your sheets and pillows.
Bedroom sex makeover step 3: get that vacation feeling
When you’re on vacation, how good is sex? It’s hot, it’s wild and it’s carefree. To recapture some of that magic, surprise your partner by changing your room around every few months. You can make simple changes, like buying new sheets, or big changes like changing the position of your bed. You could also add new furniture to your room. For example, take a dining room chair and add a cushion that matches your bedroom decor. Then, rather than having sex in your bed, move your night time session onto the chair. You can also buy “sex blankets”; fabrics that are silky and soft, yet have inner moisture barriers to absorb any liquid. These sensuous touches will vamp up your bedroom and make your sex better.
Bedroom sex makeover step 4: dim the lights
Even Scarlett Johansson wouldn’t look sexy in bright, brash lighting. Create an intimate and flattering light by investing in a dimmer light fitting or a lamp. If you’re on a budget you can simply paint a light bulb using pink or red nail varnish. This will cast your room in a warm, sexy glow. To take your lighting one step further, you may want to shop for an orange bulb as well. Researchers at the University of South Carolina found that amber lighting helps boost female arousal levels. This is because orange lighting increases women’s nitric oxide levels, which causes blood vessels to dilate and more blood to pump through the body.
Bedroom sex makeover step 5: go gadget free
Although snuggling under the covers whilst watching your favourite show can seem romantic, the experts suggest your bedroom should be a gadget free zone. It is thought that too much tech can distract you and your partner so that you either don’t have much sex at all, or when you do have sex, you are not focused. To reconnect to your guy or girl relocate your TV, phone and computer. If you use your phone as your alarm, buy an alarm clock instead. To turn up the intimacy levels a notch further, when having sex try to look directly into your partner’s eyes for at least one minute. Read more on realbuzz.com...
