Is your sex life boring? If yes, you are not alone. A recent study showed that 41% of men and 27% of women aren’t happy with the state of their sex life.

The reason why your sex life isn’t as exciting as it was at the early stage of your relationship could be because of several reasons. Everything from health issues to poor communication can sap the fun away from your sex life.  

One thing you should know is that it is possible to reignite the spark in your relationship and make your sex life fun again.

In this article, we are going to shed light on some effective ways to spice up your sex life.

Six things to do if your sex life is boring

Poor communication could be the reason why your sex life is boring 

If your relationship with your partner isn’t as fun and pleasurable as it used to be, you may be thinking that the cause is something serious. You may even start to try new sex positions and explore your kinky side.

Well, most of the time, the cause of the problem can be something as small as communication. If you aren’t communicating well with your partner, your sex life is going to suffer.

For your partner to please you well sexually, they have to know what turns you on and what you don’t like. If you don’t communicate well with your partner, it will be impossible for them to know these things.

Don’t have intercourse for a while 

This is by far one of the easiest ways to bring excitement back to your sex life. If you have been having sex with your partner consistently for weeks and months you are going to get bored.  

A simple way to address this is by taking a break from sex from a while. Even though you aren’t having sex with your partner, you are still going to have loads of fun.

During the no-sex period, you should commit to pleasuring your partner in other ways. For example, you can explore other sensitive areas of your partner’s body. You both could get naked together and massage and stimulate each other.

Your sex life is boring because you aren’t using sex toys 

If you are really serious about making your sex life fun again, you should consider trying sex toys. Sex toys are easy to use and can stimulate you and your partner in ways you never knew existed.

If you are new to sex toys, you may be skeptical about purchasing them for many reasons. Having an open mind can help you overcome this limitation.

As you likely know, there are different types of sex toys on the market. Ensure that you and your partner are on the same page before making a purchase.

Check if you have medical issues 

If things don’t improve after working on your communication and using sex toys, you should consider seeing a doctor. The cause of your low sex drive, poor sexual performance, and a few other sexual issues may be linked to some underlining health conditions like neurological disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.  

To address these issues, your doctor may recommend cognitive behavioral therapy. Studies have shown that this therapy can boost sexual function, and reduce stress and anxiety.

If after analyzing your condition your doctor determined that therapy won’t be able to help you, they may recommend medications that can.

Talk to a mental health expert 

Do you have unresolved issues about sex or question you haven’t been able to figure out the answer to? Talking to a mental health specialist may help you find the answers you have been looking for and address the problems you are facing.

These experts have years of experience under their belt and can help you and your partner grow spiritually and emotionally.

Studies have shown that improving your emotional and spiritual intelligence may boost your sexual performance.

Embrace your kink side

Wearing sexy clothes and trying new sex positions are simple but effective ways to rejuvenate your relationship. But if you want to take things to the next level, you should consider embracing your kinky side.

 Since you are just starting out, you don’t have to go all out or overdo it. It is wise you start with something small like a whip or handcuffs.

To have a pleasurable and exciting time while exploring your kinks, you should set boundaries, improve communication, and have your partner’s consent before trying new things.

Final note

There are a plethora of reasons why your sex life is boring. Everything from poor communication, to health issues, maybe the cause of the problem. Applying the tips discussed in this article will help you turn things around and bring fun, excitement, and passion back into your sex life.
