The reality of an impromptu horizontal bop in the living room doesn’t always live up to the fantasy. But your love-making skills aren’t necessarily the problem, it might just be the room!
There are some simple solutions that can fuel your love storm no matter where you are in the house, and we got ya covered.
Here’s a room-by-room breakdown for spicing up your out-of-the-bed love life.
Smell can change a mood at the drop of a hat. Try out some essential oils in the bathroom (rose, peppermint and rosemary are said to be aphrodisiacs) and see which ones help spark the mood. Tip: If you’re planning some bathing hanky-panky ahead of time, let the shower steam up a bit and then drop in the essential oils of your choice – it’ll turn the entire room into an erotic diffuser.
It’s important to have good lighting for cooking so you can, you know, see your food and all of that. But that sterile lighting that leaves nothing to the imagination isn’t so great for love. If you don’t have them already, consider adding some dimmer lights to your kitchen and turning things down low when the time arises.
Living room windows tend to be pretty visible, so make sure you have solid drapes or storm shutters in this area. Hearing street action (and seeing it in the corner of your eye) is a real good mood killer.
As for the rug, I mean it looks great in all those James Bond movies, but a floor tumble might leave you with a bruised butt if it’s not particularly cushioned. Here are a few forgiving rug materials to try: sheepskin, Peruvian alpaca (fancy) and Persian (very fancy).
What to do during those long, lonely dry cycles? Hmm. I wonder.
If you do strike something up during laundry time, you don’t want to have to stop the foreplay, leave the laundry room, go upstairs, and then go rooting around in a closet for your intimidate accouterment. So stash a mobile fun box for a few of your favorite goodies. Here are a few nondescript options that’ll work.
Just humor me for a moment here. There’s a lot more to the erotica world than 50 Shades of Grey. We’re not going to go into detail here, but take a little time to explore the options and find something you and your partner both like. Then stash it secretly on your bookshelf, and just see how it feels. Maybe you break it out and read some passages to each other, but we bet the mere presence of this tome will get the two of you in the mood for some action.
