Sex and Marriage

By  |  0 Comments

When you say happily ever after, sex plays an important role in marriage.

An active sex life is a key ingredient in every great marriage. Intimacy, more specifically sex is one of the four pillars that supports all long-lasting marriages, the others being communication, trust and mutual understanding between the couple. Most failed relationships always have a sad tale about a lack of intimacy as well. But unfortunately, this side of the story is pushed under the carpet, more often than not. To most issues that crop up in your intimate life, the solution lies in talking it out. Wedding counselors would vouch for the fact that an earnest conversation is the best solution there is to most problems in matrimony. If you are heading into wedlock, take time out to talk to your partner to set the ideas and expectations right. This would go a long way towards building a strong, stable relationship.

The Importance of It

Agreed, that sex is not the only thing there is to a wonderful matrimony. But only if you sort this most primitive, most natural need of yours, can you deal with the rest. A good sex life takes time and effort to maintain. It won’t always be easy — our busy lives are taxing and often leave us tired and devoid of the imagination and motivation required to keep up the pace. Having good sex doesn’t necessarily mean spending hours and hours of frolicking or adding a few sex toys for women into the mix, it can be as simple as doing something a little different just for a change. Here are a few tips that could help you add ‘life’ to your sex life.

The Act of Love

Touch each other often. Have a good connection around non-sexual physical touching, hand holding, kissing hello & goodbye, laying together, sitting on the couch next to each other. When you are being sexual, open your eyes. Lock a gaze during your orgasm. Doing this involves courage and letting your partner really see you. If you are constantly waiting on your partner to initiate, you could be missing out on some really great opportunities. Most men like a lady that can be assertive sexually In this crazy world, you don’t always have time for marathon sex. That doesn’t mean you should go without. A great quickie on your lunch hour or just before leaving for work can leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied. Every so often, have sex using a different sexual script. By mixing up your usual order of kissing, foreplay and intercourse, you can reconnect in an amazing way.

Knowing what acts make your partner feel loved and appreciated, whether it’s as simple as holding hands or sending steamy sexy text messages, and making a point to do those things is tantamount to maintaining a satisfying sexual relationship. We often depend on numbers and statistics to understand the world around us. In sex, this can lead to tracking how often we have sex and how long it lasts. Rather, concentrate on having the best sex possible. That’s what truly counts.
