A to Z of Marriage Sex

“…And they lived happily ever after.”

All our lives we are taught that after the hero and heroine get married, they will live happily forever. In real life, however, the Disney ending feels more like a Ram Gopal Verma horror flick. Let’s face it, marriage is not for the faint of heart. You want to believe your pure love for each other will pull you through. And it might. But it ain’t always pretty.

Sexless periods are a natural part of married life. A dry spell isn’t a sign that you’ve lost your mojo or that you’ll never have sex again. However not having sex often, whatever the reason, tend to take a toll on marriages. While this is inevitable, with some effort from your side, you can keep your relationship fresh and exciting as ever. Here are 26 things you can try to keep the passion alive.


Accessorize the Action

Get your partner some jewelry, then ask her to wear nothing but the bling-bling to bed. This is sure to fulfill your Vegas-showgirl fantasy. Earn bonus points by asking her to tie you to the bedpost!

Beer in Bed

The secret to making midweek nooky more naughty: Pop a few exotic micro brews in the sack, and then drink to the rowdy fun to come.


Canoodle like the Celebs

Celebs are always (tastefully, for the most part) displaying their public affection, whether it be on the red carpet or at some party. Take a cue from your favorite famous pair and show your partner how much you love her when the two of you are out and about.

Dominatrix for a Wife

No, we’re not suggesting you get your partner to wear leather or get a whip; just let her take charge in the bedroom. Do whatever you are ordered to do whether it is kissing her toes or stripping, this will encourage your partner to open up and be more comfortable.

Exercise, Sexercise

Trust us: There’s a link between working up a sweat and having hot sex. When your blood is really pumping, your orgasms are more intense. For maximum mojo, hit the gym together late in the day, as close to your personal blastoff time as possible.

Free-ranging Fingertips

Instead of parking your hands in her hair or on the small of her back, keep your fingertips—with their oh-so-sensitive nerve endings—roaming over her body. This extrasensory experience will supersize both your pleasure and hers.

Garter Belt

Getting your partner to wear a garter belt with stockings will transform her from the sweet girl-next-door to a sultry femme fatale. On your next date convince her to wear a garter belt with stockings and to go commando! All through dinner slide your palm under her skirt and make her raring to go.


Heighten the Heat

Transform the standard missionary-style sex into a sizzling passion with one of these position-switching moves: 1. Stick a pillow under her butt—the lift will make sure she’s rubbed in the most intense way. 2. Once you’re inside her, squeeze her legs together for a more tantalizing fit. 3. Have her pull her legs up around the sides of your thighs and then gently push your tush with her soles.


Intensify Ice-cream Eating

Remember in high school, when you got a rush from sharing the same cone with your girlfriend? Next time you’re Baskin-Robbins’ bound, split a scoop with your sweetie. Be sure to lick the drips off her fingers and chin (when nobody’s watching, of course).

Jump Her Bones

Sneak up from behind while your partner is doing something mundane. Slip into the steamy bathroom while she’s showering. Fondle her thigh while she’s watching 2 Broke Girls. And be sure to mention that she’s too hot and irresistible for you to wait.


Kissing, Hollywood-style

Just once—heck, make that once a day—treat yourself to a head-thrown-back, big-screen smooch. Or try this riveting slow-motion twist: Grab her hands, reel her in, and plant your lingering lips on her. Who does that kind of thing, anyway? Why, you two do!

Little Black Undies

You already know that a little black dress is an essential for a woman. But what every married gal (and her partner) also needs is a barely there lace bikini or thong in noir. It’ll make you dizzy with desire. Surprise her with a pair when you return from the office and she’ll reward you by getting into them!


Messages without Words

Shh! Agree to spend an evening using only body language to get your amorous intentions across. You’ll discover a new level of touch.

Naughty Videos

Tell your partner that you really want to watch a special documentary together; then surprise her by turning off the lights and turning on a racy film. Don’t go directly for the hard-core stuff. Make sure you get something female friendly or some saucy English movies like The Dreamers or Femme Fatale.

Open your Eyes

For the ultimate in bedroom bonding, make a pact to keep your pupils focused on each other while doing the deed. You’ll stay in the moment—getting an eyeful of each other’s climaxes.

Prime Your Perineum

To get the most intense of pleasure, ask your partner to gently knead the nerve-ending-intense area right behind your scrotum. Thank us later.

Quickies, and Lots of ‘Em

Divert his attention ten minutes before he leaves for work, or as you’re headed to a dinner party. Keep him guessing when your impromptu passion will propel you to need him “right now.”

Reminisce About that Time You Two..

Here’s a little-known truth about rabid-for-each-other couples: They’re always running a postgame recap of their favorite sex-capades. Detail what you love most, and refer back to your sultriest moment often.


Signature Sex Stunt

Think of your favorite movie sex scene and try them! For inspiration watch Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas in Original Sin or Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke in 9 ½ Weeks.

Tickle her

Whilst you’re kissing her, use both hands to tickle her back (over her clothes) then put your hands directly under her top. Lightly scratch her back whilst still kissing her… this will make her shiver a little.

With either hand, gently and slowly unclasp her inners (if you can do it with one hand it looks much better) but two are fine. Bringing a certain playfulness in your love-making will make you both relaxed.

Unconditional Love

So your partner doesn’t have the body of a Greek goddess. Whisper to her that you can’t imagine waking up next to a sexier, more exciting woman than her. Let her know that for you, she is the woman of your dreams.


Valentine’s Year-round

Why single one day out of 365 for wicked wooing? Celebrate every milestone: the first time you two rocked or the afternoon on a tropical beach when you let the waves surge between your legs. We understand that this might seem difficult, but putting in an effort like remembering when you had ratatouille for the first time, tends to make your partner feel more special and you will DEFINITELY be rewarded.

Wear Her Out

One time, two times, three times—and again. Get into a randy rhythm.

X-rated Pillow Talk

A few well-placed dirty words on the mattress will make her want to bleep the bleep out of you!

Yoga Breathing

A slow, steady exhale makes for more than good yoga: It’s the secret behind toe-curling orgasms. But even if you don’t know a Downward Dog from a hot dog, you can still master this momentous-sex must. Rather than holding your breath as an orgasm approaches, slowly breathe out, expelling all the air from your lungs before inhaling again.


Z’S & The 2 A.M. Trick

Why let an arousing dream go to waste? Next time you wake up after a sexy subconscious scorcher, rouse your partner from her slumber and share that frenzied feeling. She’ll thank you.
