We’ve all heard of treating yourself (or yo’self, as it were), but this weekend, think about the way to your partner’s heart, and do him or her a small kindness. They might just thank you in the bedroom.
Sometimes all our engines need is a little emotional revving before we’re ready to do the deed. If we feel cared for, we feel comfortable, and if we feel comfortable, we’re more likely to behave like hellcats in the sack. Here are a few ideas to spoil your significant other:
Sex and chocolate go together better than peanut butter and jelly, as far as we’re concerned. Pick up a small bar of his or her fave, or do something truly special: Make truffles. They’re way easier to whip up than they look, we promise. Try this recipe from Martha Stewart.
It’s Friday, and with the way this economy is going, most of us have probably had a rough week, whether we’re a part of the daily grind or hunting for a job. Be selfless when your sweetie gets home tonight: Command him or her to lie facedown on the bed for a mind-blowing rubdown. Touching will probably lead to…more touching. Bonus.
If you normally can’t stand your main squeeze’s addiction to ’80s pop or smooth jazz or the vocal stylings of Taylor Swift, make an exception tonight and load up a playlist featuring his or her favorite tunes. May we suggest sliding in a selection or two from Weekend Sex Challenge: Have Sex to Music? They’ll love that you’re indulging them.
It’s small pleasure in life to talk about your life and have someone listen. If your significant other is waxing poetic about spin class or going on about his or her tough boss, let them. Nod, agree, reassure them, and touch them purposefully. End with a hug. (Even if they’re complaining, it can actually end well, especially if your partner is a woman: a recent study found that women want empathy from men in order to be happy.) Your partner will feel comforted and safe with you, which is what a major benefit of having a relationship anyway. End with a deep kiss. Go from there.
