Some of us have bucket lists of things we want to do before we die, but there's also another, less macabre kind of bucket list: a sexual bucket list. Since it's a good time to get outside and go on vacation, why not make a list of things to do in bed (or on the beach, or in the hot tub) before the summer ends? Chances are you and your partner will return to work with a newfound bond.
"Like with most things in life, challenging our comfort zones can be a healthy way to grow and learn about ourselves — and that includes sex!" sex educator Anne Hodder tells Bustle. "Bringing adventure into the bedroom can be a fun and exciting way to learn more about what turns you (or your partner) on and introduce you to experiences and activities that you might never have thought to try. This kind of exploration is also an effective way to build intimacy and connection with a partner; learning, experimenting, and challenging your comfort zones together puts you both on the same team and gives you a chance to bond over trying something new or unconventional together."
If that's what you're looking for, here are some items you should put on your sexual bucket list this summer.
