When Marvin Gaye wrote Let's Get It On, we're pretty sure he wasn't married with a baby.
So to make sure your sex life isn't getting stale just because of your little one, there's a few tips every couple should know to jump start their sex lives:
1. Make your bedroom a sacred space.
When you're a parent, you already have more limits on your time and space. It's important to keep something for yourselves, and the bedroom is no exception. Think of it this way: Your bed should be for sleep and sex — and neither of those things is likely if you're sharing it with your baby.
2. Get touchy-feely.
Parenthood naturally redirects a lot of your attention — and affection — from your partner and to your child. While there's no doubt that your new bundle of joy needs that love, you've got to save some intimacy for your significant other, too. Squeeze in physical touch when you can, whether that means a quick pat on the butt or a 30-second hug that's meant to boost levels of oxytocin, the "cuddle hormone" that helps couples feel closer.
3. Have a play date with your partner.
Take advantage of friends and relatives who offer to visit with your kids, or hire a sitter for the afternoon or evening. You'll be surprised by how much just a few hours of couple time can rejuvenate your relationship.
4. Just do it.
Easier said than done? Maybe. But sex begets sex: The more you have it, the more you want it. Even if you're exhausted, give it a try. You might be surprised to find yourself feeling frisky again. And the satisfaction you feel with your partner will help you both be better parents to your little one."
So there you have it, folks!
Keep the bedroom for loving, date it up with your partner, touch your partner as much as you can, and have TONS of sex.
That should about do it.
