6 Ways to Prepare for Sex to Make It So Much Better

While extraordinary bedroom skills definitely add up to better, more satisfying sex a lot more often, there’s more to it than that. Sure, spontaneous sex that “just happens” can be hot, but so can sex you’ve had plenty of time to prepare for.

In fact, a little prep work sometimes makes all the difference between good sex and great sex that leaves you and your partner both breathless. The following are just a few ways to upgrade your next sexual encounter by being prepared.

1.      Set a seductive mood.

Genuinely electric sex thrives on the energy flowing back and forth between the people involved. Of course, there’s no substitute for good, old-fashioned, natural chemistry. But taking a minute to set the right mood goes a long way, too.

You don’t have to go over the top for your efforts to make a difference, either. Just tidy up your bedroom beforehand. Put some fresh sheets on the bed, light a couple of scented candles, and choose a playlist filled with sensual music. Even a little effort goes a long way.

2.      Keep yourself well-groomed.

Although anything goes these days as far as how you style your body hair, grooming will always be super crucial for feeling and being your sexiest. If you prefer to go bare, stay on top of your shaving or waxing sessions, and don’t forget to moisturize. If you like a bush, keep it tidy with regular trims.

Paying attention to your downstairs and keeping it well-maintained ensures everything’s fantastic for anyone who’ll be spending time down there. Of course, it’s a great way to feel sexier yourself, as well – always a good thing.

3.      Keep extra protection on hand.

A little peace of mind goes a long way when getting (and staying) in the mood. Seriously, anyone who’s ever been caught unprepared in the protection department knows what a buzzkill it can be to have to make an unscheduled condom run just when things are about to get good.

That said, it pays to be better prepared than you think you need to be. Keep an abundance of condoms on hand at home, in your purse, or in your glove compartment, so you’re never caught without one at the wrong time. Stocking up on backup options like Plan B is generally a good idea, as well. It’ll be so much easier to relax and enjoy yourself.

4.      Dress for the occasion.

Yes, part of this means paying attention to what you’re wearing underneath your clothes if you know (or suspect) you might be getting a little action later on. Wear something clean and attractive. But make sure it’s something that makes you feel good, too, as it won’t matter how turned on your partner is if you’re not comfortable in what you’re wearing.

Give some thought to the practicality of the rest of your outfit, as well. Save the binding, complicated statement pieces for some other time. Instead, opt for something that not only looks good but is easy to take off and put back on. Likewise, stay away from anything that involves a multitude of zippers, snaps, clasps, or buttons.

5.      Visit the bathroom just before.

Once you’re reasonably sure intimate activity is about to go down, consider making one last trip to the bathroom. Yes, use the toilet if you need to. But take advantage of the opportunity to do some last-minute freshening up, as well.

Make sure all your key areas smell fresh and clean instead of sweaty or stale. Do a quick breath check, as well, and freshen as needed. Consider keeping travel-sized versions of your favorite toothpaste, mouthwash, and wet wipes in your purse or glove compartment so you can freshen up on the go when necessary. You’ll feel better for sure, and your partner will definitely appreciate it.

6.      Make workouts a regular thing.

Exercising, eating right, and taking care of your body, in general, are things you already know you should be doing. They’re also among the best ways you can stay perpetually prepared to have better sex and more of it. To begin with, sex is a physical activity, so the strength, stamina, and flexibility you’ll gain from exercise are all things that make it better.

And there’s no point in overlooking the obvious, either. Getting into great shape and staying that way sends your confidence soaring through the roof. You’ll spend a lot less time up in your head worrying about how you look and a lot more simply enjoying the moment. You’ll likely be a lot less inhibited in bed, as well – another factor that leads straight to the land of great sex.

Of course, these aren’t the only things you can do to be sex-ready on an ongoing basis, but they’re a great place to start. Don’t be afraid to add others to your personal prep routine as needed or desired.
