What Good Habits Have Improved Your Sex Life?

    What good habits have you formed that have improved your sex life? Praying together? Exercise? Learn to communicate? 

    I’ll start. For me one thing that helps is exercise. I’ve lost 40 pounds. Losing the weight helped with some ED issues.

    Congratulations on losing weight! It is not easy. I needed to lose about 20 lbs a few years ago and did, but it is not easy. I have managed to keep if off.

    It’s especially hard to keep the weight off this time of year. I’ve gained a few pounds the last few weeks.

      Going to bed earlier. Trying to be up in our room by 8:30-9:00, allows for time for us to talk and to “do” before going to sleep.

        The five minute rule:  How we treat each other in the first five minutes we are together after being apart sets the tone for our entire time together. We used to be really good about it, but have fallen away from it some. I guess this falls under “good habits we need to shore up”!

          Earlier to bed and showering every night, well except for these dead of winter nights.  Prayer more often and being consistent to always give her a brief back rub.

            Assume you are having sex when you go to bed

              Congrats on the weight loss! I love exercising with my wife, as well. I have been trying to initiate more prayer with her, but spiritual discipline has been a lot better overall this year for us, so it’s a work in progress.

                I really like this question. It actually has me thinking, do I need to adopt some good habits to improve my sex life? Because a good answer to your question does not immediately spring to mind. We communicate more about our expectations of each other which helps, but maybe I need to be a little more proactive. I’ll think on this more.

                  Relishing intimacy with each other.

                  Enjoying  sex in many ways; tenderly, with or without orgasm, focusing on the pleasure of each other, and being generous to and with each other (the importance of marital sexual union per I Co. 7:5).

                    Two things, one like Oldbear, enjoy tender sex and not always striving to rush to the orgasm or even orgasm at all. Me and my wife enjoy sex without orgasms or rushing to get there. Sounds crazy, but it is nice.

                    Second, we both like to masturbate and we both stopped doing it without being with each other.  We started the no masturbating with your partner thing a few years ago and I can definitely say it makes it better to wait and do it with your partner.

                      Cutting off cable/satellite…. it’s amazing how much of a time waster TV was/is.

                        Going to bed at a decent hour before I’m completely exhausted.  Setting aside Sunday afternoons as family “nap” time, having that set aside time period (where I’m not yet tired) has been nice.
