Does your sex life need a boost? Sexuality counselor Dr. Ian Kerner has written a sex “prescription” for couples whose desire needs a little bit of rekindling.
In addition to recommending that couples have sex at least once a week, Kerner suggests that couples “consume” from different types of sex. Here’s what he says:
Sex is like food – if you eat the same thing over and over, not only will you get bored; you’ll also end up depriving yourself of vital nutrients. And just like the food pyramid, there are different categories of sex that you should be consuming from regularly:
- There’s sex that’s loving and tender and enhances emotional intimacy (think love-making)
- And there’s sex for the sake of sex: because it feels good and relieves stress (think spontaneous quickie)
- There’s sex that taps the power of imagination and proves that the mind is the biggest sex organ (think sharing a fantasy)
- And there’s sex that plays to all of our various senses: sight, sound, smell, touch and taste
That last one has us thinking about the refrigerator scene from 9 1/2 Weeks. Giving “taste”-focused sex like that a shot is sure to get your (and his!) motor running.
