Feel Sexy – Now!
We may still be buried beneath our duvets waiting for the chill to lift, but that doesn’t mean our sex lives have to be buried in there too! Here’s a quick-fire list of just some of the things you can do to feel sexy in an instant.
Make an effort this evening. Yes, I know you’re tired, but brush of that lax attitude and replace it with a bright smile. Now, march yourself to the bathroom, enjoy an indulgent bath and then fix yourself up good and proper. And we mean proper – put your hair up in your favourite style, wear an outfit that makes you feel fabulous, and spend a good hour on your skin and make-up. The extra effort will make you determined to have a good time – and then, who knows what might happen?
Button up. Or button down. Yes, studies have shown that wearing buttons (on things like shirts and cardigans) can instantly add a little ‘sex’ to your outfit. After all, what’s a striptease without the allure of unbuttoning one by one? Pop on a cardi and try it this evening.
Turn the pages. If Christian Grey taught us anything, it’s that most women like to read a little something naughty once in a while – and where’s the harm if it gets you in the mood for the man in your life? In fact, there’s nothing like a little Mills & Boon to awaken your inner mix. We suggest you head straight to the bookshop right now!
Ask for his hand. Next time your man walks in and you’re in the kitchen, or you find yourself with a moment to spare, pop some slow music on and enjoy a dance together. Stare into each other’s eyes, hold each other close and mumble sweet nothings… all the way to the bedroom.
Flirt. Yep, it’s as easy as that – bring the flirt back to your relationship. Remember when you found everything he said funny, or when he couldn’t keep his hands off you as you walked down the street? Nothing in the rulebook says that has to go away, so keep it strong. A girly giggle, a brush along his arm or a wink across the room will show him you’re in the mood.
Stay naked. Yep, just being naked will make you feel like you want to stay naked. If you have a partner, then tease him with your state of undress. But if not, do it for you. Embrace your body (wobbly bits and all) and find things about your naked self that you love – your feet, your shoulders, your bum.
Turn on something saucy. It doesn’t need to be a blue movie, but there is plenty to inspire us on TV. Steamy classics include The Postman Always Rings Twice, Before Sunset and Out of Sight. Just close those curtains and get ready to recreate the silver screen.
