There comes a point in almost all relationships when the spark starts to fade. If you’re serious about making it last though, it’s important that you take some time to keep the passion alive when it comes to the bedroom department.

It’s easier said than done, but it certainly isn’t impossible, and there are many ways that you can keep things exciting. Let’s take a look at five of our suggestions.

Try some sex toys

Sex toys aren’t just for solo endeavors! Lots of items are perfectly suitable for couples, so don’t be afraid to go shopping together and check out what’s available. If you’re a bit shy about the whole thing, try buying online. There are many online sex shops that will quickly and discretely deliver your package to your door.

Get out of your usual surroundings

When you have your day-to-day chores to take care of at home, it can be difficult to get in the mood for love in the same space. To get away from the mundane, try booking a few nights away in a hotel. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, and you could use your romantic getaway to unwind and appreciate each other again.

Get an overnight babysitter

It can be hard to enjoy a passionate love life when you have little children around. If you can, why not ask the grandparents to take them overnight from time to time? When you don’t have the bath time routines to worry about, you can kick back with a nice meal with your partner, then see how the evening progresses from there.

Play dress up

Instead of lounging around in your comfy pajamas, make an effort. Whether it’s some fancy new underwear, a revealing dress, or even a cheeky costume, it can do wonders for your confidence and your libido. Experiment with different looks till you find something that gets you both in the mood.

Exercise regularly

Exercise is a well-known way to add some extra spice in the bedroom. Not only will you feel fitter and more inclined to make an effort, you’ll also find that your partner will appreciate your toned body. We lead busy lifestyles, so it’s a lot easier said than done, but just half an hour a few times a week can make a big difference.

Start out by using just one or two of these tricks and see where it takes you. Within a few weeks, they could completely transform your sex life!
