Are You Overdue for a Sexual Makeover?

You are not an old dog, and you can learn new tricks! Try these 10 strategies

5. Pucker up

Kissing seems to have gone the way of handwritten letters, but try some new varieties on your partner — slow, quick, hard or light, starting on the face and working your way down from there. Show or voice your appreciation whenever your partner reaches a particularly delightful place.

6. Make like a pretzel

Get a copy of a how-to book (such as Anne Hooper's Ultimate Sex Positions or Alex Comfort's The Joy of Sex) and, just for the fun of it, test-drive three new positions.

7. Include after-play

Whether or not you've had an orgasm, celebrate your makeover with a sweet, light massage; extra "partner points" will be awarded for hand, foot or neck massage, I guarantee it! Because this activity is so relaxing and intimate, it can create even more tenderness between the two of you.

8. Celebrate with finger foods

Feed each other fresh strawberries afterward, or have some other delicacy ready and waiting. Maybe it's just a cup of special tea, a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of wine. Savor the taste — and the moment.

9. Run a sizzle reel

Tell each other the favorite moments of your sexual makeover. Then see if you can't arrange to add something you especially liked to your everyday repertoire.

10. Schedule more excitement

Don't let your makeover languish: Plan your next getaway, or at-home sexy evening, for some time soon!
