Most married couples at some point during their marriage find themselves experiencing a ‘dry spell,’ and when you do, you’ll probably find yourself looking and wondering what you can do to get some action in the bedroom.
While many people would advise you to try different ways, it’s better to pay attention to yourself and your routine to find out what works best for you.
So, to help you along, we’re sharing some great secrets on how to become more sexually active.
Here are some tips that will help you improve your sexual stamina and make you more sexually active.
Disconnect to connect
We’re all guilty of putting so much focus on our phones and our gadgets that we somehow forget that the real connection is what exists outside of such technology.
These days it’s easier to post an ‘I love you’ on your partner’s Facebook wall – professing how much you love each other on social media, yet somehow these public proclamations of love can’t even get you a ‘yes’ in the bedroom.
Here’s a suggestion:
Try welcoming your partner at home with a kiss and a warm hug. Ask them about their day. Have a few hours where you’re just facing each other, just talking. Forget the world on your phones and see the world that is right in front of you.
This is a straightforward act that will undoubtedly help you get more sexually active and lead to better sex life.
2. Absence makes the heart grow fonder
When you have spent your days with your partner for so many years, it is inevitable that you and your partner sometimes coexist.
You may come to realize that you’ve turned into an excellent roommate to your significant other. You may spend so much time together, including your free time, that maybe you are taking each other and your life together for granted.
To have better sex, why not spend a little of it away from each other? Learn a new hobby, sign up for classes, join organizations, spend time with your friends.
The time you’ve spent away from each other will help you both look forward to the time that you will be spending together. The distance apart will help you improve your sex life.
3. Spend some time with your partner
If you’re not spending much time with your partner, then make time for your partner. Plan and commit to attending date nights (no matter what occurs in your life or how much you don’t feel like going out).
Watch a movie, have a picnic at the park, have dinner out of the house or do what millennials are currently doing, ‘Netflix and chill,’ meaning, stay home and watch movies indoors while you both relax and enjoy each other!
It doesn’t matter what the activity is, as long as you’re just spending time with your partner-no distractions allowed and be sure to focus on what you find attractive in your partner.
In no time at all, you’ll start to notice those feelings develop into sexual attraction, and before you know it, you won’t need to think about how to become more sexually active.
The sexual tension built between you and your partner in that quality time will make you both want each other.
Have you tried introducing or reintroducing pleasure-enhancers in the bedroom, such as toys?
Maybe you have toyed around with the idea of using such devices previously or already have tried it and realized how much it aided you and your partner to get into that extremely passionate mood.
Being adventurous in the bedroom might help you appear more sexually attractive. Being open about expressing your sexual desires may also encourage your partner to be more open about theirs, and it will help you both be better at sex.

9. Eliminate bad habits
Most habits to relax and unwind promote a false sense of relaxation and negatively influence sexual performance.
For example, smoking, drugs, consuming alcohol or unhealthy foods, sitting around watching television.
Whether you are feeling tired and lethargic due to your binge eating and tv watching habits or because you are dealing with the side effects of alcohol or cigarettes, these are a fast way to harm your longevity and enjoyment in the bedroom.
Stimulants such as drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, coffee, and energy drinks narrow blood vessels and have been linked to dampening your sexual activeness, so get these out of the way, and you may find that you can have sex for a long time.
It won’t be easy, but it surely will result in improving sex performance.
10. Get a lot of sunshine and fresh air
It’s a well-known fact that sunshine and fresh air bring us a lot of life force and vitality, or at least it seems to – but did you know why? Or how it can be the best sex stamina tip?
At night (away from the sun, the body produces melatonin, which helps us sleep, also calms down our sexual desires).
If you hang out in the sun, you reduce the melatonin, which will prolong your stamina and improve your sexual performance.
Even in the winter, getting outside and letting the sun linger on your body will help you improve your sex life.
11. Eat power foods
Did you know that certain foods can increase blood flow? These foods will help your body and mind to feel better and increase your desire for sex.
Here are some examples;
Onions and Garlic – Improves blood circulation.
Banana’s – Loaded with potassium which lowers your blood pressure (and boosts sexual performance).
Chilies and Peppers – Naturally spicy and fabulous for helping your blood flow, it also reduces hypertension and inflammation.
Salmon, tuna, avocado, and olive oil are rich in omega-three fatty acids, perfect for increased blood flow.
Peanuts and kidney beans contain vitamin B1 and help speed up reactive signals in your nervous system, which includes the messages from your brain to your genitals.
Eggs – High in B vitamins, which can help balance hormone levels, decrease stress, and inhibit sexual performance.
Start to include some of these foods in your regular diet, and you’ll soon find that you are more sexually active than before.
