  • Soundtrack
  • Mirror
  • Vacation


  1. Step 1

    Have a signature scent

    Select a scent to wear only when you have sex. You'll soon be able to get your lover excited just by dabbing on your signature cologne or perfume.

  2. Step 2

    Get everyone out

    Rid the bedroom of any photos that feature anyone but the two of you. Pictures of children, parents, and pets are subconscious mood killers.

  3. Step 3

    Make a soundtrack

    Make a soundtrack for sex, using whatever tunes turn you both on; the right music can help inject some sexy sizzle.

  4. Including a mix of beats, from slow and steady to fast and pounding, can encourage variety in the tempo of your sex play, too.

  5. Step 4

    Do it in the afternoon

    Arrange some afternoon hook-ups. Changing up the time of day you have sex -- and choosing a time when you have a lot of energy -- can make things hotter.

  6. Step 5

    Change positions

    Change positions -- and not just sexual ones. Doing it with your heads at the foot of the bed, or sideways across the bed, will add spice.

  7. Step 6

    Watch it

    Angle a mirror near the bed -- or wherever you're getting it on. Catching glimpses of yourselves in the act can add more sizzle to your sex life than any X-rated movie.

  8. Step 7

    Go on vacation

    Go away together -- even if it's just for the weekend. Research shows that couples on vacation not only have more sex, but better sex. And you'll take that holiday-sex glow home with you.

  9. Women between 18 and 50 who drink a glass or 2 of wine a day report higher sex drives and better overall sexual function than women who don't drink at all, according to one study.
