One of the most important things is to be clear about what your enjoying, if you are both getting the most pleasure out of foreplay and sex it will strengthen your relationship and make everything even more pleasurable. Being totally open with each other makes for more powerful and trusting sex. After that find ways of heightening your senses, with oils, orgasm balms, tingle lubes, being restrained or blindfolded. Or if your partner is stressed or nervous try relaxation, massages are very sensual and relaxed muscles will make for better flexibility and movement as well as pleasure. Experiment with what is right for both of you and never be afraid to try new things, as long as you are safe and responsible sex can take you anywhere!

Don’t just keep it in the bedroom! Always take time to try new things and remember to TALK to each other – flirty messages can lead to much more later! Be confident too ♡

Wear the sexiest outfit you can find. The feel of the outfit will all play a part in how it makes you feel so go for something that has a sexy material (not cotton!) You both will not want to take it off, so keep it on!

17. Chris

Get into the right mood will help for great sex. Do not just grab her and throw her on the bed (unless she likes this of course, now and again is good fun ). Have a romantic dinner, set the scene, good food, good music, dress the part – woo her, like you did when you first met. Then lead her into the bedroom. Clean, fresh sheets, fresh rose petals on white sheets, scented candles, low lighting. She’ll probably giggle and make fun of you, but she will secretly love it as it makes her feel special that you went to the trouble.

Just before orgasm during intercourse, withdraw then give her oral sex, then when you aren’t near orgasm, resume intercourse and repeat several times. while you save your orgasm, she has millions, in which the one you have right at the end is amazing trust me, it’ll be a night to remember

I think what makes sex fantastic is the work up to it, so begin slowly, teasing, kissing up against the walls, holding each other down. And then once on the bed kissing slowly down your body and the use of ice cubes going down your body and then being blown on.

Always take youR time as well and do whatever you like(as long as your partner does like it aswell though) but let the moments take you away

Always be comfortable with each other and always be open to experimenting. these things don’t need to be rushed just take your time to find out what each other likes. but never forget to be intimate with things like a soft name call or gentle caress. Doing this can and will lead to a better bedroom life and intimacy!

Lots of foreplay. If you are planning to make love tonight, tease each other a lot during the day. Send a SMS, text, picture or video or call each other to tell how excited you are looking forward to the night time. Run a warm bubbles bath with aromatic candles, dim the lights, put on the music and tell each other how you want to be teased, to heighten up the tension! & into the bedroom, play with each other, discover every inch of the bodies like never before before you go into it! Whisper and feel for each other!

Wear something extra sexy start with foreplay, kissing massage licking fondling etc, men don’t go straight downstairs make her tingly and wet. Use the erogenous zones to your advantage. There are ways to make her “cum” without penile entry

One of the best pieces of advice I can give is to be confident. It makes a world of difference when you shake off the feeling that things are to embarrassing to say or do and really get involved with the experience, and I tell you, when you get started saying and doing things confidently, you not only start sounding like a suave James Bond type lover, but you realise there are a lot of things you didn’t know you could do, or even things you didn’t know you liked! Thanks

Emotional intimacy can be as sexy as physical closeness

28. sean

Simply turn down the heating (in this country, erect nipples are an easy way to show heightened erogenous zones – and with delicate touching, you’ll shiver not just from the chill), turn down the lights (best achieved night not morning!) but turn up the body contact and share your pleasure. Soft, sensitive touch to lighten the mood, and even some playful tickling – nothing as sexy as a woman’s giggle. All the fun you want, and even save money on those reduced energy bills!

29. Julia Plummer

Being blindfolded and your partner using a feather definitely heightens your senses, using a dimly lit room with scented candles also sets a lovely romantic atmosphere! Just make sure you always have a safety word, just incase things get too much and you need a break! Also a durex vibrating ring is lots of fun for both of you! Hope I win and get to try this prize I can’t wait to try it!

My tip would be a 69er as foreplay, makes the sex amazing! Also to be able to talk about what is good and what hasn’t been so good in sex, makes sex hotter when you know what each other likes and knowing it’ll be great.

try eating mints before oral sex, the feeling is amazing for both parties, the cool mint feels amazing and should have you reaching climax really quickly

When I was younger I was always too shy and scared of getting pregnant to do lots of “sexy” stuff.

However, after being widowed twice by the age of 40, I have realised (after having an amazing sexual relationship with my boyfriend 13 years my junior) that life is too short to be shy & scared. My advice would be to try different things, after all if you don’t like it, you can stop there and you don’t have to do it again.

A confident woman is the biggest turn on for a man; he won’t even notice your spare tyres or wobbly bits.

But the guilt I carry is immense now I realise what an amazing sex life I could have given both my husbands…
