Okay, it's no big secret that after years of being with the same person day after day and night after night, things can get pretty routine. As a matter of fact, I can pretty much tell you exactly what will happen and in what order things will happen on any given day. Not that I'm unhappy with that, of course. I am very happy and comfortable in my relationship. But....from time to time things get TOO routine. There's no rush of excitement involved in settling in on the couch to watch the newest episodes of Chopped Champions. (Which ironically, is exactly what my husband is doing right this second.)
Same goes for the bedroom routine...Things, over time, can become quite predictable. Or even worse, almost scripted. I hate to say that THIS is something we are experiencing right now due to being worn out from taking care of Xander, who is not quite sleeping through the night yet. Okay. Some people say 5 hours IS sleeping through the night, but I beg to differ,lol. Our sex life has become incredibly bor...oops, predictable. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say everything is always EXACTLY the same.
Day 9 of the K-Y Brand Intimacy Experiment shows us how shaking things up and getting the adrenaline pumping outside of the bedroom can definitely help get the motor running inside the bedroom, too! Doing things together that get the blood pumping, perhaps things that are competitive or even risky like sky-diving or bungee jumping, help release the brain's natural amphetamines, dopamine and norepinephrine, AKA "brain crack". These chemicals play a huge role in sexual arousal. Now I personally would never in a million years jump out of a perfectly good airplane, and I have bungee jumped once and almost peed myself, and would never be that stupid again,lol. But it DID give me a rush...A natural high. Doing activities as a couple that create this effect can do wonders for things later in the bedroom!
Here are some ideas for upping that sexy "danger factor" in your relationship. We can't do many of them right now since we're surrounded by babies 24/7, but we do intend to plan something along these lines just as soon as we find some willing and unsuspecting poor soul to hand the babies off to for a day!
-Indoor rock climbing
-Playing paintball or laser tag
-Visiting an amusement park
Okay. I would never go horseback riding, either, cause horses scare the dickens out of me. But you get the idea. If you want to recapture some of that heart-pounding excitement you experienced so much of early in your relationship, it helps to get your adrenaline pumping outside of the bedroom first!
