Looking for a Bit of Spark? Here’s Some Fire Starters to Rekindle that Romance.

Ignite Passion: How to Rekindle Romance

It’s pretty simple to come up with a million reasons why intimacy is not part of the picture when it comes to every day life. But regular sex is not only healthy for your libido, but also great for everything from heart health to a better mood and back again. And sometimes, that means finding time away from the kids/dog/laundry/Instagram to reconnect somewhere special.

Needless to say, it’s not always in the cards to go on a costly holiday somewhere sunny. But there’s simple ways to bring back that spark that won’t break the bank.

Here’s some ideas on how to bring that sexy back.

1. Commit to dinner somewhere new

It seems like a no brainer, but planning ahead for a dinner out can often seem daunting. Find the time to try that new Ethiopian spot in the neighborhood, or wine and dine at your favorite Italian spot you pass on the way to work each day. Take turns choosing and surprising your partner with a wonderful new experience. Food is love, so make time for it at least once a month.

2. Go local

If you can’t afford to get away, check out rental options and do a staycation. An overnight in your own city can be a fun little escape, and their local experiences offer tons of fun ideas for classes like dumpling making in Philadelphia or surfing in San Diego. And if you’re a business traveler and have lots of hotel points, many hotels offer similar programs for their customers that could offer a great opportunity to explore the hometown… and each other.

3. Master the massage

Work hard? Play hard too. There is nothing better appreciated than a good massage, updated with lovely scented oils, candles, and products like K-Y® Natural Feeling Lubricant and Massage Gel with Botanical Essence Love the skin you’re in and he or she will too.

4. Get tropical

Yea, this one’s a stretch and a bit extravagant. But really, Miami is one sexy town. Beautiful beaches. Beautiful people. Mojitos and sunshine. You get the idea.  Hot tip- fly into Ft. Lauderdale as it’s often cheaper than flying into Miami and only 45 minutes from South Beach. Convertible not included.

5. Try a new scent

Scent is a big part of seduction and switching it up could lead to something new and fun. Scent may help intensify intimacy, and scents like vanilla are known to help inspire intimate moments. On the other hand, sandalwood’s masculine vibe is known to calm as well as attract.

6. Be spontaneous

Ask any couple who’s been together for more than a minute and they’ll tell you- being spontaneous is super tough when it comes to life, let alone sex. But it’s also super hot so find some time to surprise your partner with anything from concert tickets to his favorite band to filling a bathtub with her favorite fragrance instead of passing out in front of the TV.

7. Role play

We know. This one’s tough with the person who’s held your hair when you drank too much at your sister’s wedding. Even though it’s all about better or worse, embracing a new attitude aka persona can be a whole lot of fun. Whether it’s switching up who’s zooming who in the bedroom or trying out a wig and going dancing, there are ways to role-play that don’t feel so cliché. You may not win an Oscar for your performance, but you may just win a hot night of sex.

8. Get on the same page

With so much going on in work/life, it’s hard to stay awake past 9 pm let alone connect with your partner. Find some time to talk about all of your hopes and dreams, and remember how hot it can be to share goals and dreams with the love of your life. Seduce him or her with how creative and focused you can be when it comes to your life together.

9. Try a new sensation

Consider spicing things up in the bedroom with a non-traditional lubricant to add new sensations to the bedroom. A warming lube like K-Y® Warming Liquid Personal Lube or K-Y® Warming Jelly Personal Lube adds a gentle warmth that can enhance intimacy and can help rekindle that romantic relationship.

If you’re still trying to figure out how to rekindle romance in your relationship, try reaching for K-Y® Yours & Mine Couples Lube. You and your significant other can enjoy a lube made just for you. Experience tingling sensations for her and a warming sensation for him and find that spark all over again.

10. Take up a new hobby together

Discover shared interests and passions by taking up a new hobby as a couple. Whether it's cooking classes, hiking, painting, or dancing, engaging in a new activity together can foster a sense of adventure and rekindle the spark. Embrace the excitement of learning something new and enjoy the journey of exploring it together.

11. Embrace the power of non-intimate touch

Physical touch is a powerful way to connect with your partner, and it doesn't always have to be about intimacy. Embrace the beauty of non-intimate touching to deepen your emotional bond and rekindle romance.

Hold hands while taking a leisurely stroll or cuddle up on the couch while watching a movie. Engage in gentle caresses, back rubs, and shoulder massages to show affection and care. Give each other warm hugs and meaningful kisses throughout the day. Even a simple touch on the arm or a playful pat on the back can communicate love and support.

12. Explore the sensuality of sexting

In the digital age, sexting has become a popular way to spice up a romantic relationship and build anticipation in your relationship. Through playful and flirtatious messages, you can ignite the spark from a distance and create a sense of intimacy.

Express your desires, fantasies, and compliments through text messages. Paint vivid pictures with your words, teasing and tantalizing your partner's imagination. Share steamy thoughts, intimate memories, or even send each other seductive photos (remember to prioritize consent and respect boundaries).

Embrace spontaneity, keep the flame alive, and don't shy away from exploring new adventures together.
