A full bladder is no fun
3. Naked bodies do make noises
Sweaty bodies can catch air as they rub up against each other, making it sound like somebody just ripped one.
4. Sexual Shakespeares are not made overnight
Like with so many sex acts, practice makes perfect. The same goes for erotic talk. In expanding your sexual vernacular, a little bit of rehearsal may be required.
5. Bad breath stinks
Whether your breath reeks, or you’re keeling over from that of your lover’s, simply state that you want to be more kissable. Explain that fresh breath will make both of you feel like getting fresher. Then ask your lover if he or she would like a piece of gum, a breath mint, or care to join you for some toothbrush time. Be playful about it.
6. ‘Drunk driving’ isn’t always sexy
It’s best to abstain from any kind of sexual rendezvous when you’ve had a few too many.
While it may seem hard to take out time to hit the gym for a workout session, very few people know that indulging in a sweat-inducing sex session is equally beneficial.
It not only helps burning extra calories, but also allows couples to perform routine exercises and also enjoy sexual pleasure. What else can couples ask for!
Dr. Basheer Ahmad Roy, a Bangalore-based sex specialist states, “Almost all muscles including the legs, thighs, arms, shoulders and lower abdomen are worked upon during a sexual interaction. Anything that is done for the body should be done for at least 15 minutes and a sex session may not stretch for this long. So couples need to pay extra attention that if they wish to derive additional health benefits from sexual positions, they need to prolong sexual activity right from foreplay to the climax state.”
Apart from the fact that sex brings relief from headaches, reduces depression and tranquilises the mind, leads to glowing hair and skin etc, it’s also true that many sexual positions double up as easy workouts.
Dr. Shivi Jaggi, a Delhi-based sexologist asserts, “Sex helps burning a lot of calories. Different positions in which partners participate as per their comfort level lead to a fit body. A few complex positions that require more of physical strength and involve more work lead to weight-loss and exercising of muscles. Intensity of movements and duration of sex make a lot of difference.
Here are some lovemaking positions, which will let you stretch the most important muscle groups in your body…
Missionary position (Man on top)
In the Indian context, more than 90 per cent of couples indulge in the missionary position in bed, which seems to be quite gratifying for them. As the act involves weight balancing, it obviously has a number of physical benefits. The missionary position is all about stretching, arching and tightening. While the malepartner is on top, the female laying on her back can also stretch her back, arch and tighten the abs. In addition, she can also try tightening the kegel muscles right during the act.
Dr. Jaggi elucidates, “The partner on top gets more involved in the physical activity. With a male partner on top, a lot of pressure is borne by his arms and shoulders. Besides, elbows and knees are used to the maximum while balancing in such a position; hence it stretches the muscles in both these body parts. In addition, thigh muscles are also worked upon during the missionary position, as you are almost on your knees during the act.”
Woman on top
It is said that women can orgasm quickly while on top. Yet there is an evident reluctance among Indian women to try this position in bed. But having a female partner taking the lead is a very good exercise. It allows both partners to enjoy an equal participation, where the woman uses her hands and arms to prop up and down, and the male partner is holding the woman thus balancing her body weight.
Dr. Jaggi shares, “With the woman on the top, the weight would normally be borne by the male partner. Women being the physically weaker counterpart during sex, you cannot expect them to hold on to their body mass completely. So again it’s more of exercise for the men, where they use their biceps’ muscles to hold their female partner. For a female too, just to maintain the position for a longer duration, she is stretching her biceps, triceps, forearms and chest muscles to the fullest.”
Figuring out whether a woman is on the pill or not may help guys avoid unwanted pregnancy.
According to Men’s Health, women on birth control blink 32 per cent more than those who aren’t, Jezebel reported.
During this time men are advised to put on their toughest, most confident mug as they look at women. Because of the shift in hormone levels, research says, women on the Pill are more attracted to men with rugged features, such as strong, wide jaws.”
“Stroke her forearm first. This area of the arm is packed with pleasure nerves that respond best to a touch travelling 1 to 10 centimetres per second… [to stimulate] an area of the brain associated with trust and affection,” the mag suggests.
Men who sweat can make use of this opportunity to turn a woman on, as your post-run sweat has androstadienone, which spikes her arousal when she smells it.
If you want to know whether she is ready for sex or not, slowly and firmly flick your tongue against the palm of her hand. If she wipes it off down her skirt, your chance is gone.
You can also guess from the position of her feet. If she moves her feet away from her body, adopting a more open-legged stance, you’re golden. But if she crosses her legs or tucks them under her body, then you better clear up your intention.
As in case of foods, “According to new research, the smell of toast is a serious mood booster.”
Eat some chocolate – it’s caffeinated and so “can jolt the sex drive.” It’s packed with phenylethylamine, which can “activate the brain’s pleasure centers.”
Another interesting and easiest tip is sexting. “Girls like explicit texts, too. So next time you’re bored waiting in a queue for lunch, text her the rudest, naughtiest thing you can possibly think of and inform her of when exactly you plan to do it.”
Last but not the least: girls are as turned on by taking pictures as you guys are from receiving them.
Passionate dreams about that long ago flame, that colleague you have a crush on or even a famous celebrity can make you feel dazed and confused. But the most common emotion that one experiences is usually guilt.
Experts say that these dreams should not be taken as literal expressions of lust. In fact it is believed that interpreting and understanding one’s dreams can help unearth one’s fears or desires.
Dreams are often a way to let you know what you need but are not getting during your waking hours. By making the effort to decode them you could achieve a far more satisfying love life. Here are five common scenarios:
