We all are. In trying to balance work,
family, friends, and keep up with basic household chores, it can be
easy to neglect your personal space. Clothes will pile up on
bedroom floor. A mix of junk mail and bills will be
on your nightstand. Dust bunnies will burrow under the bed,
you'll forget when the last time was that you bothered to change your
sheets. Your bedroom will become nothing more than the place
sleep at night; a place where you occasionally have so-so sex five
minutes before you turn on the alarm clock and drift into dreamland.
I know this isn't the routine you want in your life. You want
passion, and fun, and spontaneity. You wouldn't be reading
if you didn't.
Set aside a Saturday, break out of your busy schedule, and turn your
bedroom into a sexual
sanctuary. It's easier than you think.
Step One: De-Clutter Your Space
If you don't have a laundry hamper, get one. Make sure your
clothes land in it every day. Create a separate place (in a
separate room) where you can handle your mail, paperwork, and
job-related reading. It may be easy to look over things in
night, but that's not conducive to sleeping and it's certainly not
conducive to sex!
Over the years, you've probably accumulated quite the collection of
knick-knacks, photos, and various other things that take up space on
dresser and nightstand. Now's the time to weed them out.
Keep only the bare minimum. Pictures of you and
your lover enjoying a romantic
getaway can stay. Pictures of mom and dad should
probably be relocated to another room! A crowded space will
only leave you and your partner feeling distracted.
Chances are you have a television and DVD player or VCR in your
bedroom. Make sure that your movie
collection isn't piled haphazardly on top of the machines.
Stack them neatly, and reorganize so that the ones that put
you and your guy or girl in a frisky
mood are easily accessible. Erotic
films can be a fun part of foreplay, and what guy doesn't
love having his girlfriend hide her face in his chest during a scary
movie, but anything involving Will Ferrell in a speedo should be
promptly returned to your living room!
Step Two: Sensual Decorations
Please note that I'm not talking about posters of scantily-clad women
or buff men in uniform. When you're decorating for sex, think
of things that have a more subtle sensuality about them.
candles can serve two romantic purposes. They'll
give you the perfect "mood lighting" for a sexy encounter, and they'll
also perfume your bedroom with the pleasant smells of known
Beautifully crafted toys, like glass
dildos featuring vibrant colors and unique shapes can also be
used sparingly as decorative pieces of art that will enhance the sex
appeal of your sanctuary.
If you really want to turn your room into an adult playground, don't
forget the swings -- the love
swings, of course. These contraptions are terrific
for helping you and your lover experiment with adventurous positions
and wild sensations. And you don't have to leave yours
hanging around all the time. Chances are, simply looking at
the cup hook in your ceiling will be enough to start your heart racing.
Step Three: Build a Private Collection of Toys

that you can use with your lover, and create a

aren't your thing, invest in a massager
and some lightly scented
oils. And always make sure to have some quality
lubricant on hand so that every encounter you have will go
No matter how you decide to stock your toy drawer,
you're sure to have plenty of fun with its contents!
Step Four: Go to Your Room
That's all, folks! Dedicate yourself to keeping your private
space neat and playful at all times, and you're sure to enjoy many
romantic nights in there. Soon, you'll be having more and
better sex, and as an added bonus, you'll even be sleeping more
soundly. What more could you want from your very own sexual
