new things to try in bed

Keeping your relationships fresh requires constant effort, especially if you’ve been dating the same person for a while. The thing is, everything that lasts eventually becomes a routine, and while there’s nothing wrong with having a comfortable routine, you want to prevent it from becoming boring and predictable.

One way to make your relationship both comfortable and fun is by finding new things to try in bed. Here are twelve ideas to get inspired!

1. Take some sexy photos

Today, taking selfies is nothing new – but why not take it a step further and snap a few sexy selfies with your boyfriend? Of course, you don’t need to share them with anybody; they should exist just for you. You can play with photos, try out different angles and lights, perhaps even different themes if you’re into role-playing. Moreover, if you’re feeling extra confident, you can also record a video and keep it for later to get you in the mood. All in all, this is definitely one of the more creative things to do in bed, but make sure you completely trust your boyfriend before you take any sexy photos or videos with him.

2. Try role-play

Speaking of themes, if you do like the idea of role-playing, this can be a fun way to introduce something new into your love life. If you’ve never tried it before, it might feel a bit silly at first. However, after a few tries, it’s bound to become one of the most fun things to do in the bedroom. Whether you choose a more typical role, like teacher and student, or something a bit more BDSM-related, such as cop and robber, you might be surprised by how much entertaining role play can be.

3. Book a hotel room

Trying a new sex location can be more exciting than staying at home. The easiest way to do this is to book a hotel room. You can also add the role play to the mix, or you can include some food play. Moreover, you can make the whole thing even more exciting by turning up separately and acting like it’s your first meeting together. And the best part about this – you don’t have to clean up after. All in all, it’s not hard to see why this is one of the best sex ideas for couples who like to experiment.

4. Experiment with toys

If you haven’t already, you should try some adult toys. If you’re too shy to go to the adult shop and buy some in person, you can easily find adult toys online. Take your time to browse the listings and find something that you’d be comfortable with: maybe a feather tickler or a pair of soft cuffs? And with all the different choices available, this kind of fun could keep your relationship alive and fresh for a long time. If you can’t decide on what to choose, you can browse the store together with your boyfriend. Alternatively, you can order some surprise toys for each other and then test them out in bed.

5. Play a game

If you enjoy quickies, why not try the opposite – see how long you can last. When talking about fun sex ideas, this idea is bound to keep you engaged for a while. You can take turns stimulating each other in any way you want, and the goal is to resist orgasm for as long as possible. The winner is the one to last the longest – but, in this kind of game, there really can’t be a loser. Another way to play this game is to make your foreplay lasts as long as possible. In other words, drive each other crazy until you can no longer resist each other.

6. Make out like teenagers

One of the sexiest things you can do in the bedroom is not having sex at all. This is especially true if you feel like you’ve been stuck in the same routine for some time. Most of us have memories of making out when we were teenagers, and doing so is a great way to go back in time and relive those moments of youthful love. It’s a perfect opportunity to work on your kissing skills. You can play some romantic music, light a few soothing candles, and focus on building intimacy rather than sexual pleasure.

7. Restrain him

If you’re looking for kinky things to try in a relationship, you can try BDSM. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should go full dominatrix on your boyfriend – when trying new things, it’s always good to start slow. So, for example, you can restrain him or blindfold him, and tease him until he can’t take it anymore. Moreover, this can be combined with many other mentioned things, like role play, food play, or even toys. Not being able to touch you or see you, and having to focus on the other senses is bound to make this experience fun for both of you.

8. Learn new positions

You’re probably already familiar with the contents of the Kama Sutra. This ancient Indian book on sexuality and eroticism contains a variety of sex positions that can freshen up your love life. It’s a great way to revive the passion you feel for each other, and it will bring you closer – both physically and emotionally. If you feel adventurous, you can try more creative sex techniques, or you can start with the ones that are less physically demanding and progress from there.

9. Give him a full-body massage

Besides the fact that a full-body massage releases tension in the muscles, giving it to your boyfriend can also help you connect on a more intimate level. You can make it even more sensual by adding some essential oils to the mix. After some relaxing, a good massage will inevitably lead to fantastic sex. With all that in mind, it’s not a surprise that a full-body massage is one of the favorite things to do in the bedroom for many couples.

10. Watch porn together

Most people associate porn with men – since most of the porn is arguably made for men – but women do watch it too. So, why not watch it together? It can even give you some ideas about what you might like to try in bed. You can choose a porn movie that you like and surprise your boyfriend, or you can let him choose instead, and perhaps even wear some suitable lingerie to fit the mood. As for what happens after the porn – or during – that’s really up to you.

11. Use honey dust

If you do like food play, but you don’t like cleaning up after, one of the new sex things to try is honey dust. It is an edible powder that you can put on your boyfriend’s body and take your time licking it off. It’s a lot less messy than whipped cream or actual honey, and it’s great for spicing up your foreplay. Moreover, honey dust powder often comes with a feather applicator that can further enhance the whole “event.” So, if you are into romance and sensual play, this is something to consider.

12. Do a sexy striptease

Last but not least, you can try bringing excitement back into your love life by playing sensual music and doing some sexy striptease for your boyfriend. This is also something you can combine with both role play and BDSM, as restraining your guy while turning him on is guaranteed to result in some angry sex as soon as you free his hands. Just try not to wear your favorite shirt when you do that, as it’s likely to be torn off. Also, striptease is perfect if you’re looking for something new to try in bed. And don’t let your shyness discourage you – you don’t need to be a professional dancer for this. All you need to do is show some sensual movements, and it would be more than enough for your guy to go crazy about you.

Reviving passion in the bedroom is something you should never be ashamed of – on the contrary, you should be proud of your efforts to keep your love fresh. Try something new in bed, and don’t be afraid to ask your boyfriend for his input.
