MUST READ FOR ALL MEN – 10 Things That Could Be Ruining Your Sex Life…..
1. Having Bad Breath
Foreplay is one of the best parts about sex! That feeling you get when you’re able to kiss someone passionately and have your bodies transcend each other is magical…except when the magic is blocked by the taste of the chicken Caesar salad you had for lunch six hours ago. Your breath smells normal to you throughout the day because you quickly become accustomed to the smell. And even though you may not think it’s ruining your charisma between the sheets, the reality is that that first whiff of your breath can set the tone for the entire encounter. If you don’t have time to brush your teeth before the deed, make sure to carry around a travel tin of mints. You’re welcome.
2. Taking Too Many Cues From Porn
Porn has been stellar for my sex life in the sense that it has given me a clear understanding of how sex doesn’t work. Like, in reality people have pubic hair, and a tiny bit of saliva is not sufficient lube for anal. So if you’re one of those people who grew up watching porn and tried to take all of your cues from the men performing on screen, please reconsider. Porn is great for giving you vague ideas of what to do in the bedroom, but by no means should it be the blueprint you use for your mojo.
3. Not Taking Enough Cues From Porn
Now, having just denounced the educational values of pornography, I will say that it gives you the opportunity to be creative. I’m not suggesting that you should go out and rent Deep Space Ass 19 to give you ideas on how to spice things up in the bedroom, but if you’re always ending up in the same old positions again, you could consider taking some inspiration from the stars on screen. Not to mention, if you’re considering doing some role-playing, crappy porn acting can be really inspiring. Variety is the spice of life, so think of porn as your occasional paprika.
4. Not Washing Your Damn Sheets
I know a lot of us (myself included) struggle with adulthood, and a lot of the times life gets away from us. You may not notice that your sheets are disgusting because you only change them once a month, but chances are your partner knows that they’re supposed to be changed every 10 to 14 days. Yikes.
5. Rushing Everything
I myself am guilty of rushing through foreplay because I want to watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones before bed, but sex should be savored. When we feel like just going through the motions, we should take a minute to reflect that we’re usually having sex with someone because we like them. (Or maybe you’re just drunk and horny?) Either way, these reasons should be celebrated and savored, not hurried through.
