Are you practicing social distancing? Suddenly find yourself stuck at home with your partner? We’re all there. My husband and I are newly married. We are still very much in love and my heart still skips a beat when he smiles at me but I sincerely hope, by the end of this quarantine period we don’t kill each other. Because I am under the firm impression that humans have evolved with a drive to share life with a partner—just not all day long. Our hunter-gatherer predecessors formed pair-bonds, but they separated in the morning to go about their separate responsibilities. So did our ancestors on the farm. For hundreds of thousands of years, even the most devoted couples have been uttering some version of that basic romantic principle: “I married you for better or for worse, but not for lunch.” And it sucks.
So here at Midnightdivas, we compiled a list of quarantine tips to make your afternoon delight even hotter and to get you through these tough times. Scroll down!
1) Bedroom Fantasy
Play dress up. Just do it. Get your bedroom costume game on point. Do what you have to do to make that fantasy a reality. You’ll thank us and your partner will thank you. Who says everyone can’t win?
2) Have a dance party in the living room
Create a collaborative playlist with nostalgic songs from your most joyful and most importantly sexy moments. Play a song every day to dance together. And if you have 2 left feet, move the coffee table (which you can later get creative on, I mean who says it has to be on a bed always), create a dance floor and pull up a dance tutorial video on Youtube. There’s nothing like putting on some good sexy music and dancing off some of the quarantine jitters and cabin fever.
3) Leave Sexy Signals
Especially if you’re in a long term relationship making time for intimate times can get kinda… hard (and not in a good way). Drop a red pearl g-string near his laptop (maybe keep the kids away from his work-at-home station for a while) or slip a note into his boxer shorts with something you want to do to him and then maybe do the deed within 24 hours. Raawrr!
4) Self Love
Nothing is absolutely hotter than a girl who knows what she wants and intimate self-esteem is essential for a steamy sheet session. Take a record of what you like about that hot body of yours and what you maybe don’t love so much. Focus on those sexy parts and learn what makes you feel like the sexy love muse that you are. The more you’re into yourself the more they won’t be able to resist you!
5) Work It Out
Get the blood flowing and endorphins running. The release of endorphins (caused by exercise and other cough*cough physical exercises) has been shown to increase sexual arousal or even orgasm in women. Uh, yes, please? If there ever were a reason to not skip that Yoga/Barre class… because sweating together is a fun way to maintain some semblance of a healthy routine during quarantine, which will highly influence how productive and happy you both are throughout the day and…. night. Bonus points: Activewear is so effing cute these days it doubles as everyday clothing at home.
6) Switch It Up
Getting into a sensuality routine rut can cause a real loss in mojo. Doing a simple position modification can work wonders. Need some inspo? Watch naughty videos on the Internet! You’ll get all hot and bothered just watching the options. And once it’s all over why don’t you continue to have a shower together? Wow, indeed.
This one seems like a given these days but it’s an art that is often overlooked when you are married to your partner and stuck at home. There’s no need to bare it all with a naked photo. Just slip on that sexy red bra or lingerie and send it to your partner whilst they are working! Sometimes a simple dirty emoji string can do the trick too!
