Planning a sexathon on a special occasion like birthdays and anniversary might seem cliche, but is one of the best kind of sex to indulge in. According to sex therapist Kristie Overstreet:
"In longtime relationships, things can get monotonous, and having sex around special occasions spices things up, and there can be a really big payoff."
So what should be done to keep this thing an exciting event even after a decade of its existence? Be a little more creative with your 'Dick Out Of The Box' theme, and you are good to go for the night. No, you don't have to strain your pocket for that. Remember, what matters is the experience that you both had. Just focus on making your sex night special because so is the occasion. And if you find the work of planning things out a burden, follow our four-step guide:
Set Things Up -
How often do you and your partner prepare the room and set the mood before having sex? I guess barely. But as the day is unique, everything you do should be unique too. Give your partner a surprise by setting up the room for them. You don't have to go all lavish by lighting up fancy candles or gifting your partner costly stuff. You can go as simple as decorating the room with flowers, lightening up the room with fairy lights and wearing their favourite colour. It's the little things that matter.
Focus On Building-Up The Mood:
Sex is not about getting a blowjob, giving an oral, humping and reaching orgasm. It involves mood build-up, foreplay and aftercare too. Though your idea is to have sex on your big day, don't just jump on it as soon as your partner comes. Try spending some time with them. Watch something steamy on Netflix or play an adult truth or dare game. Make things interesting for both of you.
Keep Things Slow -
Special occasion sex is more than getting intimate. It is the idea of making love. You and your partner are celebrating a day that means a lot to both of you. Make sure you don't make it about kinks. Try slow pace sex with lots of cuddling and foreplay. Just love each other, appreciate each other.
Experiment In Bed -
While keeping your kinks aside is one thing, special occasion sex is an opportunity to take a break from your usual sexual routine. Try out some new sex positions or maybe a new sex spot.
Having sex on a day that is special for both of you is a bonding activity. So make sure you utilize this opportunity to the fullest. Just know that its your moment and your night, do that makes you both feel the closest to each other.
