Variety, they say, is the spice of life. The enemy of our souls spreads the lie that the variety we crave should be met by having a variety of partners. What is really needed, however, is the variety that comes when love moves you to overcome inhibitions and creatively find as many ways as possible to add fun and surprises to your special times with your partner.
Almost universally, women dress up and spend more time on their appearance when strangers will see them than when they will only be seen by the one person in their lives that a wife should want to sexually attract. Practicing the following affirms by action that your husband really is more important to you than strangers. What woman wants to be seen in public wearing the same clothes all the time? Women seek variety in what they show the world, how much more should they do this for their husbands.
The goal of the suggestions is to shatter your manís presumption that your body offers nothing new to see. The aim is not necessarily to look sexier, but to keep your husband wondering; causing him to take a new interest in your body. Always try to save the more extreme options for later surprises and aim to spread over months, preferably years, the implementation of new ideas, with all sorts of variations. Many times do nothing to touch up your body, but try to be totally unpredictable as to when those times will be. Keep him guessing. Keep your body a fun-filled surprise.
Initially heíll most likely be shocked, maybe even think itís stupid, but heíll never forget it. Heíll always remember that you put in the effort to do something special and memorable just for him. Above everything it is the fact that these things are an expression of your love that will make them so precious to him. Explain to him that this is your motivation.
You will probably find some ideas are only worth trying once, but youíll have the rest of your lives to look back and laugh. Youíve been daring within the exclusive confines of holy matrimony. Never again can your husband take you for granted. Youíve thrown off the suffocating cloak of predictability and become someone exciting who is fun to be with.
Get excited about your surprises. A smile and a twinkle in your eye, and especially love in your eyes, are unbeatable ways of beautifying yourself. Remember the following are mere suggestions. Some wonít work for you. You and your husband are the sole experts about what gives you pleasure. But donít give up quickly. Gently persist. You will be doing some mad-cap, unforgettable things together; sharing a laugh and a secret that only the two of you will ever know. Itís the sort of thing that bonds people.
Youíll need to be gentle with your body and perhaps test some things for a day on a tiny patch of your skin to ensure you wonít have an allergic reaction.
A few ideas
The elimination of the need for garters or garter belt was a great leap forward for comfort, but when it comes to seeing a woman undress . . . Put it this way: after the invention of pantyhose, itís a wonder they even bothered to invent the Pill. Incidentally, I recall an article in a old womenís magazine (the magazine was old, not the women it was intended for!) suggesting that if you are wearing old-fashioned stockings Ė the type that doesnít turn a manís stomach Ė and you are deliberately undressing to please your man, the most exciting way to remove these stockings is to roll them off. Sounds good advice to me. I think your only hope of enticingly removing pantyhose involves a pair of scissors.
Hire from a costume shop a sexy outfit. Maybe even hire a wig to give yourself an entirely new look. Even the clothes you wear in public have potential. Try wearing just a top as a mini-dress. Use plunging necklines that in public you would wear something underneath. Pull up a half slip and wear it as a dress. Even if youíre already well endowed, maybe you could have fun with a super wonderbra or something to make you look enormous and show plenty of cleavage.
Use lipstick on your nipples (maybe elsewhere). On different occasions, use different shades. After a few months, when he thinks all possibilities have been exhausted, hit him with flavored lipstick.
Wrap a little tinsel around you. Another time use your imagination as to how you can deck yourself with a few flowers. One possibility would be to use a ribbon into which you poke holes to receive short-stemmed flowers. On another occasion dress yourself in nothing but a scarf or two. Another time oil your body to make it glisten. Try sticking glitter on yourself. At times try subtle things he could miss if not paying attention, such as a tiny gold star stuck on your behind.
Buy lotion that gives an artificial suntan. On different occasions, go for different shades of brown. Sometimes make yourself look at if youíve been sun-baking in a bikini. Another time go to the other extreme and find something (talcum powder?) to whiten your body.
Write something cheeky or romantic on your body, such as writing on your breasts, ďHubbyís toys.Ē Try a pretend tattoo.
On a warm day, tell your husband to wait outside the door for a couple of minutes. Lay down, put something like whipped cream over your breasts, each topped with a strawberry. Then call him in.
Over months, put your pubic hair through many color changes. Try curling it. Sometimes aim to beautify it, after many weeks go for the occasional startling thing, such as bright pink or streaks. Ideally, use hair treatments that will only last a day or so, to avoid embarrassment if you have a medical appointment or some such thing. Again, donít do this so often that it becomes mundane; the aim is to take him by surprise.
Give him a strip show. There are a million possibilities that would delight him. For example, dress with lots of layers of clothes and underwear with each lower layer being briefer and hidden, and each time you expose a bit more flesh do something wild to him. If you can, introduce some music and movement (especially moving the hips and breasts.) Donít forget that high heels are very sexy. If you donít usually wear them, thatís not only sensible for your feet but modest as well. Can you, however, find some way of coming up with some just for a few moments for your husband? Would a friend let you borrow some, for instance?
Many a woman has discovered that her attempts at stripping for her husband only seem to make him laugh. Thatís fine! Laughter is an expression of happiness. It means youíre having intimate fun together.
Draw or stick a little heart shape, or some such thing, on a private part of your body. Then without wearing any underwear put on a short dress or skirt and top that is very revealing when you bend over Tell your husband what youíve done, but donít necessarily tell him what it looks like and certainly donít tell him where it is. Explain youíll give him a special sexual treat (name it) if and only if he sees the shape. Then tease him. Perhaps go about your normal housework or put on a special show for him, doing all sorts of dances and movements in front of him. If he catches a glimpse of the sticker, he gets the promised sex thrill. If he doesnít, he has to forfeit it and give you the thrill of your choice. Donít feel sorry for him and give it to him anyhow. If he begins to realize you will always let him win, it will reduce some of his excitement. The more thatís at stake, the more exciting it will be. Even if he loses, he still wins because his sexual tension has built up. Keep him longing to see your special parts. You donít want him getting bored with seeing you. Try to keep your naked body as something exciting for him. Donít normally let him see you naked, for instance, when heís not stirred up.
When making love, donít spoil the moment by talking about inappropriate things Ė heís probably not in the mood for discussing the eating habits of the Nambian cockroach Ė but minimize deathly silence. Fill your lovemaking with sweet nothings. Giggles, sighs and groans of pleasure are the sweetest music to a man. Verbalize your appreciation of your husbandís qualities, and physical attributes. Itís often acknowledged how much women need to be told they look good, are loved, and the like. Men are usually too embarrassed to admit they need it too. Perhaps try some new pet names for your man Ė and not necessarily romantic names, they could be erotic names or ones like Tiger. Ensure they are names that appeal to him rather than you. The last thing you want is to consistently use a name that turns his stomach. Maybe even invent pet names for parts of his body.
Aim to awaken the dormant erotic potential of every fraction of your husbandís body. It can take months for parts of a personís body to come alive sexually, but each different part of the body provides new sensations when sexually awakened. Donít give up after just a few tries. If something is pleasurable for other people there is a very strong probability that your husband is wired the same way and that it simply needs to be strengthened through practice. For instance, Jim felt an unpleasant tickling sensation in the roof of his mouth whenever his nipples were stroked. Nevertheless, he persevered for several sessions. He learned to focus on the pleasant sensation so completely that the feeling in the roof of the mouth totally disappeared, never to return again. Now, he reports, whenever his nipples are caressed, it is one of the most beautiful feelings he has ever known. The soles of the feet are another of many other possibilities.
Invent love-making games. For instance, start making love with both of you fully clothed. Wearing nothing but tracksuits would work well. Each partner tries every conceivable way to stir up the other, but itís a competition. The first one yielding to temptation by deliberately exposing skin or touching bare skin under clothing, Ďloses.í With breaks, this can go on for hours (even days) if you can last. One aspect of good sex is to build sexual tensions higher and higher without relief, making you crave each other more and more. If one partner consistently Ďwins,í alter the rules a little to balance things.
There are many possible variations, such as making love when you are both undressed. This time decide together which favorite parts of the body must not be touched. Again, each of you arouses the other, trying to make it impossible for his/her partner to resist. The Ďloserí is the one who can stand it no longer and touches an off-limits area or begs to be touched, or brings an off-limits area into contact with the other person. If you both love kissing, another time allow everything but kissing. See who is the first one to ďforget.Ē
Good sex often has a lot of tease elements, such as pretending to do something but not quite doing it. This builds the longing for it.
Experiment with various scented oils, powders, and so on, to help your hands and body slip over him.
Use different materials to stroke his body such as feathers, satin, fur.
Buy a red light bulb. Being a light that emphasizes red parts of the body, it a sexy color for light-skinned people.
Try finding every conceivable position in which to hug each other and be close. Initially, donít go primarily for sexual stimulation but just for fun and experimentation. Try head to toe, front to back, him on top, you on top. Try rubbing your buttocks on his. Try lying on each other on the floor and rolling over and over. On and on the possibilities go. Find all sorts of ways to get limbs twisted around each other. Itís up to you whether you actually proceed with them, but just for fun, try discovering every conceivable sex position.
When youíve got the house to yourselves, make the most of it. Donít just lock yourself up in your bedroom. Use the whole house. Chase each other through it, use the sofa, and so on. Experiment. You might, for instance, find that the kitchen table has something to offer regarding a different sexual position. Maybe not, but it could be fun finding out!
Find a secluded place to make love outdoors. In the middle of a golf course at night? Find a deserted childrenís park with swings, slides and so on. It can be quite romantic because itís like being able to share your childhood together. If youíre alone (and since youíre married) you can really play the little girl, wearing a dress and hanging upside down showing off your underwear. You might even find some creative things to do together on some of the equipment.
Male sexual difficulties
An impotent man can enjoy sexual pleasure, but not intercourse. Itís a commonly accepted fact that most men at some time in their lives experience temporary impotence, whether it be due to tiredness, stress, too much sex, or whatever. It takes a lot of pressure off a man if he has known, long before a problem occurs, that an erection does not assume prime importance in his wifeís attitude to lovemaking. If, when an erection fails to happen, it is brushed aside as no big deal and other forms of lovemaking are enjoyed, the problem will most likely vanish in a matter of days. But if impotence is seen as a great tragedy and fear and concern set in, the problem is likely to continue and become serious. One of the most frustrating things about male sexuality is that the harder a man tries, the less likely he is to succeed. Conscious thought about the mechanics of sex usually hinders performance. This is psychologically induced impotence, and is quite common.
To a certain extent, your husbandís sexual prowess depends on you. Bill visited a prostitute. Seeing his male equipment primed for action she said, ďIs this all youíve got?Ē Immediately, it shrank. Realizing her error she used all her skill trying every conceivable way to regain his erection. Nothing worked. Thereafter, he was impotent. I donít know if he ever recovered. Rarely can anyone be blamed for impotence and in this case Bill was sinning and so in my view he got what he deserved. Nevertheless, Billís experience demonstrates how delicate male sexuality is. It is clearly in a wifeís own interest to boost her husbandís confidence and do nothing to make him anxious about performance. Be totally honest, however. The heights of marital intimacy involve baring the soul, not just the body. In this and in every aspect of your relating, be brave and trust the God who loves you so deeply that he gave you your partner for you to express Godís love.
