Ooh La La – 6 Ways To Improve Your Sex Life

Do you long to have a juicier sex life but simply don’t know where to start? Have you quit even fantasizing about spicing up your sex life, moving beyond the missionary position, or feeling hot for your partner and yourself again? If you feel that way, you’re not alone.

After giving birth, suffering through my Perfect Storm, and completely losing my mojo, sex was the last thing on my mind. Plus, I tend to be so cerebral that I lose touch with my body completely for hours, even days on end. Then I started exploring ways to enliven the sexual creature within me. I took a class at Sheila Kelley’s S Factor (the pole dancing exercise classes that teach you to “feel your fur” and move like the sensual being we all are) and attended Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts.

Have my efforts transformed me into the evolved, divine sex goddess I long to be? No, not yet. But I’m getting closer. (Just ask my hubby.)

They say we teach what we need to learn, and this topic came up frequently when women submitted questions to me for my book What’s Up Down There? Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend (which launches September 28 — pretty please preorder now!).

I may not have it all figured out, but I got to interview a lot of experts while writing this book, and I learned a thing or two along the way that I’ve put into practice (with great results!). Here are some tips.

Over the past several years, my wife has been on a journey of sexual self-discovery. By not being jealous, I have found that I can enjoy her journey enormously. Although I never meant to be judgemental, I was still surprised at my positive response to watching her have sex with other men or women. Adn when she did so in a more private way, I enjoyed hearing what had pleased her during those encounters. Our own sex life has been enhanced to a degree I never thought would be possible.
