You don't have to go all “50 Shades of Grey” on your husband or even do something that makes you feel embarrassed or could get you arrested. There are a number of simple techniques you can use to revive your sex life. Whether you choose to be spontaneous or take charge, you can put that spark back in your marriage.
Do you and your husband have a routine? Maybe it's sex on Tuesdays. Skip the routine. Surprise your husband with an unplanned encounter. When you were first married, you didn't plan your sexual encounters so why plan them now? Get the kids out of the house and let your husband come home from a hard day of work to find you wearing nothing but a smile. Seizing the moment anytime you're feeling frisky can help you break out of the routine.
Everyone knows the importance of “marital aids” yet many women aren't willing to walk into an adult store. The good news is you don't have to. There are a number of websites that will ship toys, videos, books, and more in discrete packaging. Start with something simple that won't scare your husband or insult him. For example, purchase a book that shows different positions you could try.
One complaint many women have is that the sex is the same old thing. Instead of laying there and yawning your way through the experience, take charge. Show your husband what you want him to do. Do something he's not expecting, such as sucking his nipples. When you start to show a bit more interest in what's going on, he's likely to respond in a positive way.
Stop fantasizing about how good your sex life used to be and start improving your current sexual encounters. Be spontaneous, find fun toys and books to add to your box of tricks, and (above all) take charge to make the experience what you want it to be.
