Valentines Day is around the corner. Think champagne, roses, chocolate, a romantic dinner. But let’s be real, where does every hot Valentine’s Day wind up at end of the night? In the bedroom, of course!
But clutter, dirty laundry, electronics and kids’ toys can really put the kibosh on a sexy environment – and stop you before your knickers even hit the floor!
So this Valentine’s Day, clean it up and make room for Cupid! Here are 4 quick tips to transform your bedroom into a romance-ready boudoir.
1.) Make your space work, clutter, and kid free. Jettison any traces of work; they’re a reminder of your To Do list, and of a stressful week ahead. Also, hide your laptops and ipads, unless you plan on watching something sexy on them! Clear out family photos with anyone who shouldn’t be watching you have sex — send your mother-in-law to the den. Kids toys are a reminder that you’re a great parent, but not a sexy mama! Stow them in their proper place. It’s all a distraction from putting your Mojo first.
2.) Use light to flatter and seduce. Great soft lighting creates intimacy and warmth. Be sure you can adjust your lamps and overhead fixtures with dimmers or different settings. Chandeliers dripping in crystals are always sexy. Warm light from candles and light-filtering lampshades or amber-tinted sconce covers add enchantment. Even stringing up some delicate twinkly lights can add romance and fantasy.
3.) Set a sultry mood with fragrance. Scent can be such a turn-on in your bedroom. It will transport you away from your workday and into your own personal fantasy. Light candles and burn oils – think vanilla, musk, sandalwood, even a hint of cinnamon, or something with a subtle combination of sweet and spicy. For a fun, frisky treat, try Booty Parlor’s “Don’t Stop Massage Candle”. Massage is a great for slowing down, reconnecting with your lover, relieving stress, and stimulating the senses, instead of rushing into intercourse.
4.) Up the foreplay! Once your bedroom has successfully been transformed, go ahead and take the foreplay challenge. No woman likes it when her lover goes straight for the bull’s-eye, right? So encourage a slow warm-up. Gently glide your lover’s hand on the outside of your jeans first, then let your partner continue over your panties. Eventually, slide his hands underneath them. At this point, you’ll be getting warm and lusting for his touch on your bare skin.
See? You’re probably feeling sexier and more inspired already. Now, go clean up your room, V-Day is almost here!
