If you’re looking to make a New Year’s resolution you’ll actually keep, how about this one: resolve to have the best sex of your life in 2015!
These five sexy resolutions will give you a steamier love life and keep you safe from nasty STIs in 2015 and beyond.
1. Use the right contraception
Let’s be honest: an unplanned pregnancy is a mood killer, to say the least. But using the right contraceptive gives you the opportunity to be spontaneous; to have sex whenever and wherever you feel like it, and to give in to your passion without worrying. Not sure which contraception to choose? This handy article can help you. And remember, always double-up with condoms because contraceptives don’t prevent STIs and HIV.
2. Get tested together
This doesn’t have to be a buzz kill. Knowing your status means you can protect yourselves and each other, and finding out together means you don’t have to face it on your own. Schedule a time and go for the tests together – and while you’re at it, why not chat to the nurse at one of our Marie Stopes centres about your contraceptive options? Once it’s done, you’re free to go wild!
3. Be faithful
Monogamy is the sexiest thing you can offer yourself, and your partner. Stick to one guy or girl, and always use protection. This gives you the freedom to enjoy sex without risk – and that’s the best kind of sex there is.
4. Communicate more
You can’t expect to have a fulfilling love life if you don’t tell you partner exactly what gets your juices flowing. Tell your partner how to please you, and then let them do the same in return. Now get to work putting it into practice – that’s the fun part!
5. Don’t get stuck in a love rut
Missionary getting oh-so-monotonous? You can have sizzling sex even if you’ve been in a relationship for a long time. The trick is to be spontaneous, adventurous and just a little creative! These kinky sex tips are a great place to start, and they’re guaranteed to steam things up in no time at all.
