People are always looking for ways to switch things up in bed, but it's hard to know in advance how you might enjoy doing that. Things that sound great on paper (or in porn) might be less than pleasurable in reality, and on the flip side, you might be surprised by the activities you end up liking. There's no reason to push yourself to do something you don't want, but if you're curious about something but unsure if it's for you, the only way to know is to try.
“Increasing the sexual experimentation and excitement in a relationship means you have to understand the emotional or mental reasons excitement occurs,” Lisa Strohman, JD, PhD, Founder & Director of Technology Wellness Center and licensed clinical psychologist, tells Bustle. “The pleasure system is our center of emotions, drives, impulses, and desires. If you can stop thinking about all of the demands you have on your schedule and start to spend a little time working on feeling sexy, available, and open, you can change this pattern.”
