Wanna up your game in the bedroom? Let’s take our cue from champion athletes and break down a few of the ingredients to help you be your partner’s GOAT.
Always start with a warmup
Did you know there are 31 erogenous zones in the body? Sometimes it’s easy to run for the finish line, but your partner will appreciate a few detours along the way! Short on time? Make it a game and try a new erogenous zone every time you are engaging in physical affection with your partner.
Listen to Body Signals
The adage, every good conversation starts with good listening, holds true when it comes to amazing sex. When connecting with your partner, while communication is critical to trust and respect in the bedroom, it is also important to listen with your body. If you tune in to your partner’s movements, signals and responses, you can reach new heights in the bedroom.
Know Your Equipment
Yoda had it right when he said, “size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not.” The most successful athletes in the world understand that their success on the field is not predicated on their physical traits. The most important factors for success are motivated by the desire to perform to their best abilities, to be patient and preserve, to focus on their goals and to practice, practice, practice… So let’s take a page from their playbook. Oh, and remember to keep your equipment protected.
Do what you can, when you can
Sure, a 24-7 sex-filled vacation complete with fireplace, bearskin rug, and very little clothing make for a great environment for non-stop orgasms. But how often does that really happen? Sometimes we are waiting for the perfect moment, the Valentine’s day, the “ideal” fantasy. And we keep waiting. Mind-blowing sex doesn’t need all the bells and whistles (even though, those are fun when you can get them!), make the most of what you have in front of you. Got 5 minutes in the morning? Take advantage of shower time to get a little extra affection from your partner. Struggling to find a show you both like on Netflix? Click off on the remote and tune into your own show. Exhausted from a long day at work? Tell each other about it over a comforting foot rub or back massage. You don’t need a lot of time or effort to create and maintain a physical connection.
A common staple on the field (and in every edition of Men’s Health Magazine), turns out it also holds true in the bedroom. When it comes to comfortable, sensual and satisfying sex, wetter can often make it better. Using a water-based (or silicone-based) lube can amp up any sexual experience. Lube elevates the pleasure in nearly every sexual experience, from foreplay, to use on toys, in the shower or bath, or even inside the condom. Check out Champ’s selection of personal lubes to learn which one to use when!
Remember, when it comes to pleasing each other in the bedroom, everyone is a winner.
