Welcome to Sex Week! This year, we went inside the bedrooms of married couples to find out what's really going on. What did we find? Married sex is anything but boring, according to the iVillage 2013 Married Sex Survey. This is the first year we've included men -- and they sure do have a lot to say! In honor of our surprising results, we're kicking off iVillage's Sex Week 2013: seven days dedicated to spicing things up in the sack and in your relationship before Valentine's Day. (Trust us, you'll love everything from Married Sex Mad Libs to a quiz that'll test your sex IQ.)
Some highlights of this year's survey results include: More married men report hotter sex (and more foreplay, dirty talk and sex toys) because of E.L. James' worldwide dirty read than women. Eighty percent of husbands and 60 percent of wives report they're happy with their sex life, and 68 percent of the guys say they married the best sex of their life. More interesting results will be revealed today on the Steve Harvey Show, click here for local listings.
And, read on to learn easy, fun ways to turn up the heat -- and win some great prizes while you're, umm, at it.
