5 Sex Sins That Can Ruin Your Love Life -- and How to Avoid Them

Sex Sin #4: Never Taking Charge

If you always wait for your partner to initiate sex, you're seriously missing out. Power can be a huge turn-on, and nothing feels sexier than being the one unzipping the trousers and having your wicked way with him. Initiating sex when that's not your usual style can jump-start even the most sluggish of libidos. With your partner pleasantly caught off-guard, you'll get a buzz from being in the power position.

Get over It

Make the first move as often as possible -- and keep having sex even when you don't really feel like it. Human beings are creatures of habit: Our bodies thrive on routine because it keeps things simple in a complex world. Have a waffle every day after lunch and within three or four days, buying and eating them will become automatic. Your body will wait for that sugary carb rush (and your thighs will get bigger and bigger, but that's beside the point). By setting up a craving cycle and having regular orgasms, your body will expect its regular sex quota. It's worth pushing yourself when you're not longing for it, if for no better reason than to keep your libido stable.
