Quality Over Quantity: When You're Too Tired For Sex

Quality Over Quantity: When You’re Too Tired For Sex

Too tired for sex? It happens. If you’ve got kids, a mortgage, a demanding boss and a job that keeps you up working late, sex is probably the last thing on your mind.

Luckily for you, having a good sex life is not about quantity: it’s about quality. If you join the ranks of the average couple, you’ll be having sex once a week. It’s high time you started focussing on making your time together a special moment that’s all about top quality loving. Forget about work: it’s all about you. Here are our top five tips to get you started:

Explore all of your erotic zones. Good sex isn’t about penetration and clitoral stimulation. It’s about stimulating all of your erogenous zones from your thighs to your neckline, up to your earlobe and over your lips. Make foreplay last longer and increase the intensity of your orgasms by creating a full-body experience!

Be spontaneous. If your sex life is becoming more and more routine with lights-out just-before-sleeping sex, it’s time to spice things up and experiment with spontaneous sex in the laundry room, in the shower before getting ready for work, or when you have a few minutes alone before going to fetch the kids from a friend’s house.

Go slow. Enjoy the experience and stop worrying about reaching an orgasmic end. Enjoy being caressed, touched, tickled and massaged. Go slow, and when you do climax, it will be more powerful and more intense – not to mention, well worth the wait.

Play with sex toys. So, you’re too tired to keep up clitoral stimulation? Experiment with sex toys and let them do the hard work for you. It’ll introduce a bit of sizzle into your sex life, and you’ll be oh so glad you tried it.

Forget about yourself and your problems and just enjoy the moment. Easier said than done? Then try out role playing where you can forget about being mum/co-worker/wife and put your effort into being a submissive, a nurse or someone else for the night. You’ll fuel your erotic fantasies, enjoy a saucy night with a difference, and finally stop worrying about deadlines!
