Be a bookworm. Put on some comfy clothes, dim the lights and page through a hot novel on your bookshelf. Racy sex scenes in romance novels can be quite inspiring in the bedroom department.
Relax in a warm bath. Fill the tub with warm, bubbly water and light a few of your favorite scented candles. Slipping into the hot water will really help your tension melt away. You’ll be able to let your mind wander to sexier pastures, like what you’ll do later in bed with your fellow or what you’ll do right there in the bathtub with yourself.
Watch a movie with great sex scenes—here are eight of our favorites. Seeing two on screen lovers touch each other here, there and everywhere will leave you with all sorts of ideas about what you’d like to do with your partner once you get your hands on him.
Go commando. This isn’t feasible in every situation, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you could try skipping undies while you’re driving around town running errands. If you’re not feeling up to it, you could wear your sexiest lingerie under an otherwise innocuous outfit.
Take a mental stroll down memory lane. If you’d like some sexy bedroom inspiration, take a peek into your own archives. Recall a particularly hot sex romp or even come up with a new sexual fantasy. Your imagination is full of sexy surprises.
Lotion up. This one is for you and your partner. After slipping out of the shower, ask your man to join you in the bathroom. Have him rub lotion on your lower half—your legs and maybe even butt cheeks—while you focus on your upper body. The slick feeling of skin on skin will have both of you feeling hot-to-trot before the lotion even has a chance to soak in!
