Cross your thumbs and slide them up the spine to the point between the shoulder blades. Then use your thumbs to massage his upper back and release the tension that's stored there.
Get His Juices Flowing

1. Fiddle with your Facebook timeline. Sure, reading a bunch of humblebragging status updates from friends may just piss you off, but a Cornell University study found that spending time editing and adding to your own profile actually makes you feel better about yourself and the awesome things going on in your life. The kudos you just scored from your boss? Yeah, hit post.
2. Put on the one outfit or item of clothing you already know you look fantastic in. When you're wearing something you really can rock, your self-assuredness skyrockets, says clinical psychologist Elizabeth Lombardo, PhD, author of A Happy You. There's a reason Kim Kardashian is always sporting the same bandage dress silhouette-she looks banging in it, and she knows it!

If we bought you enough flowers to fill up all the empty containers of varying shapes and sizes in your house, we'd bankrupt ourselves.
Is what goes on your face or hands not good enough for your feet?

No, we will not hold your wallet, keys, brush, and cell phone. You chose to carry that useless bag.

Of the list of traits, "sense of humor," "fun-loving," and "playful" ranked highest of the things women searched for in men.

Eating and drinking soy definitely has health perks. But the bean also contains plant estrogen, which can mess with your sex drive. If you're not allergic to dairy, and just love the taste of soy milk, mix it up with regular milk lattes to balance it all out.
French fries, chips, and chicken fingers often contain trans fats, which screw with your blood sugar and make you feel lethargic. And when you don't have energy, it's harder to get in the mood for a horizontal workout.
Ice Cream and Cheese

Try the "Gyno" Position
First, wash your hands. Then, prop yourself up on your bed with your legs spread like they would be if you were visiting the gyno. Put lube on your middle finger and insert it into your vagina with your palm facing up. Your G-spot is on the top wall of your vagina halfway between your vaginal opening and cervix. The spot should feel a little rough, almost like the surface of a walnut.
Use a Helper
Can't reach that far with your fingers? Use a vibrator or wand with a curved end. Once you think you've hit the spot, gently rub the toy back and forth over the area. It should feel amazing.
Get Your Guy Involved
Lay in the same position as you would if you were exploring on your own, and prop your back up with a lot of pillows. Have your guy insert his middle finger and curve it

Have Sex Like a...Swimmer
Lie on your stomach with your legs apart, and your arms up above your head like you're doing the butterfly stroke. Have your guy lay on top of you and enter you from behind. This position is great for g-spot and c-spot access (you can rub against the mattress), plus you can bring your feet closer together for a tighter fit.
Have Sex Like a...Gymnast
Get on your back and bend your knees up toward your head (or if you're feeling flexible, straighten your legs and bring them behind you so that your toes touch the floor, and use your hands to support your back). Your man should kneel so that he can enter you-this angle allows for super-intense deep penetration.
