Recognize Your Sexiness

Many of us go through periods where we feel like the least sexy person on the planet. This is especially true for women with young kids, who may spend much of their time in Mommy clothes and are often lucky if they can shower on a daily basis. Remind yourself that you are a sexy creature, even if you may not look like it all the time. If you are feeling a bit drab, treat yourself to a bubble bath or a trip to a salon. At the very least, get your partner to watch the kids while you take a decent shower and indulge in a little personal grooming.

Self-Exploration and Self-Stimulation

Maybe you've simply gotten tired of doing the same old thing in the bedroom. By experimenting when you are alone and can take your time, you might discover that you enjoy unusual sensations or new moves. You may even discover a few erogenous zones you never knew you had!

Spice Things Up

Again, it's common to get all hot and bothered if things have gotten boring in the bedroom. Shake things up by trying something different. Experiment with adult toys, engage in some role-playing, add a few props or costumes, or watch some erotic movies with your partner. Sometimes even a little change can make a big difference.

Try Some New Sensations

Adding some gels, lotions, or massage oils can help kickstart your body's own natural lubrication. Some oils and lotions are even heat-activated or flavored and can really spice up your sexual encounters.
