Encouraging your partner to be happy and healthy should be a no-brainer. Not only will it boost your lover's longevity and vitality, it will aid you both under the sheets, and it doesn't get better than that. So here are 7 ways you can help your loved one to be the best that he or she can be... and reap the benefits at night!
1. Keep him fit’n healthy - Alcohol, food, or drug use can sabotage more than your tennis game. Invite your partner into a physically fit lifestyle that supports great sex and be aware of the impacts of any medications he's on.
2. Say no to regular porn - Regular and extended porn watching actually kills rather than enhances the desire for real-time sex. It becomes easier to isolate and masturbate than to engage in the work of being in a real relationship with a real person.
3. Have open discussions - Performance anxiety results in few spontaneous erections or ultimate satisfaction for either of you. Good sex is about pleasure over performance. Talk is a four-letter word for good lovemaking.
4. Work as a team - Sex was arguably the original team sport. You can't expect satisfaction in the bedroom if you both don’t participate. Encourage your man to collaborate on making your private space a happier place to be.
5. Don’t get in a rut - Men in their 50s are reportedly having the best sex of any age group. So when men in their 30s report diminished desire, it's likely that the routines and not the vessel got old. Decide together about how to generate some oxytocin by being adventurous, creative, and proactive in your lovemaking.
6. Be responsible - Children have the right to a welcoming, well-established environment in which to flourish. Fear of pregnancy can dampen more than one's spirits! Be responsible about timing so everyone can relax.
7. Get a regular “tune up” - Encourage your man to get a medical checkup if your lovemaking is being affected by premature ejaculation, low testosterone, or another medical condition. Talk about it, keeping the conversation curious and not critical.
