Life is a wild, hectic, never-ending laundry list of must-dos, especially for working parents. In the midst of all the obligations, it’s easy to forget that you are a vibrant, sexual, romantic being. The quickies between shifts become as routine as your commute if you’re lucky, or disappear altogether if you let them. It’s time to rediscover your inner sex goddess!
Peeling away the barriers from your stressful life to reveal the best sex life possible can seem like a daunting task. Who has time to figure out what makes your blood run hot anymore? That’s why we put together these 5 tips to help you on your way.
Put down the phone and step away from the work station! Take a day off. No, I mean a real day off. No checking email, no phone, no endlessly obsessing about that thing at work. Let the house go for a day. Your brain needs a rest from the stress-induced adrenaline flood of the day-to-day in order to relax enough to start fantasizing.
Pamper yourself. But what to do with your day off? Take some time to really pamper yourself. Take a long, hot, scented bath. Give yourself a mani/pedi. Insist on some you time to reboot, recharge, and rediscover your divine femininity.
Indulge in erotica. Believe it or not, it is possible to forget how to fantasize properly. Kick-start your day dreams by indulging in some quality erotic fiction. Feed your imagination with words like chiseled, captivated, grazed, kneaded, tortured, ravished… these words go unused far too often, and they need attention. Flirt! Flirting is sometimes a touchy subject, especially if you’re in a monogamous relationship, but consider it practice. It’s far too easy to fall into a comfortable, if boring, roommate-with-benefits type relationship with your significant other. Re-ignite the sparks by flexing your seductive muscles with a cute stranger… just don’t do it in front of your partner, that’s rude. You’ll find it creates a thirst for romance that follows you home, transforming your partner into your lover once again. Sleepovers: Fun for kids, vital for moms. Now you’re relaxed, you’re pampered and feeling sexy, you have images of Fabio thrusting in your head, and you have acknowledged your innate sexual prowess. Your partner has picked up on your refreshed ‘tude and is intrigued. Things start getting hot and heavy, and… someone needs a glass of water. This won’t do at all. For days like these, invest in an overnight babysitter. Then you have all night to rediscover yourself, your lover, and your best sex life, without having the mood shattered by motherly responsibilities.
Take a day like this at least once a month. It isn’t selfish (well maybe a little, but that’s not always a bad thing), and it’s important; for your own well-being, the well-being of your partner, and yes; your kids, job, and other obligations will benefit as well. You’re a better person all around when you’re feeling good about life, and that good feeling spreads exponentially. Live, laugh, love… and have incredible sex.
