1. Warm Weather.
Use the weather to your advantage. A paper by Matthew Vess of Ohio University suggests that in most people’s minds, warmth is associated with intimacy. So hotter climates naturally lead to more thoughts about other hot activities.
7. The Holidays.
Use the calendar to your advantage. Studies have shown a sharp increase in sexual activity around winter holidays, and in the US, conception rates reach a peak in December. Tis the season!
8. Little Gestures.
Don’t forget the little things make a big difference. According to Couple’s Therapist Sharon Gilchrest O’Neill, little gestures like helping with the groceries or bringing your partner a cup of coffee when they first get up in the morning really adds up. A physical connection is nothing without reinforcing the mental and emotional.
