Why wait for your birthday or date night to get busy? There’s no reason that sex should be reserved for special occasions. Not only does waiting for the right moment put way too much pressure on the event, but the more you get into the habit of having sex for “no reason,” the more you’ll have sex in general. Win-win, basically. Need some help getting started? Check out these 7 totally non-momentous excuses to experience pleasure with your partner below, then get to it.
You saw him being good at what he does.
Whether you overheard him on the phone talking business or saw him in action working with his hands, seeing the person you love at his best can ignite feelings of intense desire. So the next you catch him “doing his thing,” make a big deal of it by kissing him passionately, rubbing his shoulders, or just leading him into the bedroom.
It’s a Netflix night.
Whether you’re watching Game of Thrones or The Bachelor, entertainment can be great inspiration for hot sex on a random weeknight. Use a movie or TV show that you watch together as a reason to bring up what turns you on—or don’t say anything and just reenact your favorite scene together.
Your boss loved your presentation.
Happy couples celebrate one another’s accomplishments, and what better way to do it than hitting the sheets together? Don’t wait for him to get a promotion or for you to change jobs—make it about the little victories.
The kids are out of the house.
Whether your parents took the little ones for a long weekend, or your big ones went to a friend’s house for the afternoon, take advantage of the alone time. Sometimes quick sex can be incredibly passionate, so make the most of your time.
You had a fight.
On some level you know that those petty arguments are pretty silly. So the next time you’re bickering about whose turn it is to take out the trash, redirect that feisty energy. The afterglow will have both of you happily doing chores and looking forward to your next chance to argue and “make up.”
His butt looks great in those jeans.
OK, so maybe your husband doesn’t look exactly the same as he did on your wedding day, but you have to remember there are probably plenty of times when you catch him looking super handsome and, yes, downright sexy. Don’t keep that thought to yourself. When you initiate sex out of the blue, he’ll take it as a huge compliment, and your sex life is sure to benefit.
The weather outside is frightful.
If you never thought the forecast was enough of a reason to get frisky, think again. Whether there’s a blizzard, a heat wave, or a torrential downpour, use that time as an excuse to lock the doors, get cozy, and focus on each other.
