Better Sex, Easy as 1-2-3: 20 Tips from Dr. Ruth

14. Get up and dance.

Sitting at home, looking at each other with nothing to do? Put a CD on and dance. It will get your blood flowing, and who knows what that will lead to?

15. Share your novel ideas.

If you're hesitant to share your erotic fantasies with your partner, afraid of what he or she will think of you, suggest writing an erotic story together one night. Once he sees what you've dreamed up for your "characters," your partner will definitely get the hint about what you have in mind for yourself.

16. Overcome RE (rental embarrassment).

If you are embarrassed to rent an erotic video in your local rental outlet because you're afraid you'll be seen by someone you know, drive a few miles away and rent one someplace where you don't know anybody. Or better yet, buy one online or use a rental company with a delivery service.

17. Create a classic -- but don't keep it around for too long.

If you find it exciting to tape yourselves making love, go ahead. But after you've watched the tape a few times, be sure to erase it so that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

18. Make intercourse more orgasmic.

Many women don't get sufficient clitoral stimulation from intercourse in the missionary position to have an orgasm. But if she's on top, her partner's hands are free to stroke her clitoris, which might be just what she needs to have an orgasm.

19. Caution, clitoris ahead.

Though the clitoris is the seat of a woman's orgasm, some women find that direct contact is too strong and prefer to have the area around the clitoris stroked rather than the clitoris itself.

20. Skimp on the alcohol for better sex later.

While a glass of wine, or even two, can be relaxing and lead to improved sex after a hectic day, too much alcohol dulls the senses. So while sex and alcohol can mix, just be careful not to drown your desire.
