With COVID raging and the world feeling a bit incomprehensible, you might not have had time to give thought to your intentions for the new year. We’re here to remind you to make yourself a priority in 2021. While you’re thinking about resolutions, consider setting some goals for your sex life too! With our 7 sex-positive New Year’s resolutions, you can start the year off with a bang...even if you skipped out on fireworks.
1. Treat Yourself To More Me-Time
Every solid resolution list includes some self-care, and what is more caring for yourself than some good old-fashioned masturbation? Masturbation is the “drink more water” of resolutions: it’s good for your mood, overall wellness, and makes your skin glow (probably). Wanna make this the year you take things to the next level by investing in a toy just for you? Check out Dame’s Arc G Spot Vibrator and take your Me Time to the next level.
2. Try A New Location
Due to the pandemic, most of our travel resolutions will have to be put on hold. In the meantime, you can itch the travel bug by having sex somewhere new. Haven’t broken in that new couch? Now’s the time. Always wanted to do it under the stars? Grab a tent and head to your backyard for a night to remember with your partner.
3. Be A Babe In Toyland
Bringing toys into your partner play is a sure-fire way to mix things up. From classic handcuffs and blindfolds to cock rings and anal beads, there’s a toy out there for every couple. Trying something new can really be a turn on for you and your partner, even if it doesn’t become a bedroom staple. BTW, your Lorals can be fantastic to play with. Let your partner rip them right off you for some kinky fantasy fulfillment.
4. Make Sexual Health A Priority
Did you skip last year’s OBGYN checkup? We all get busy, but it’s so important to remember to take care of your body, so it can take care of you! Go to your doctor for an annual appointment, talk about anything that’s been on your mind, and treat yourself to a full STI check for peace of mind. Knowledge is power!
5. Can You Say Lingerie?
Buying lingerie can be a great way to make yourself feel sexy any time, anywhere. Our recommendations? This mesh bralette that’s minty fresh, and this ice blue teddy that’s red hot.
All sex-positive resolutions don’t have to lead to actual sex. It can be refreshing and exciting to get your flirt on as well. In the age of COVID, sexting is a fun way to stay safe while getting kinky. Download a dating app, swap numbers, get some good lighting and have fun!
7. Embrace Body Positivity
For most of us, feeling sexy goes hand in hand with feeling confident. You are a beautiful gorgeous rockstar, so stop telling yourself otherwise! For help exchanging that negative self-talk for positive energy, try out a few of our favorite books The Body Is Not an Apology: The Power of Radical Self-Love and Body Positive Power.
3...2...1 happy new year!! Ok, it’s a little belated, but it’s still never too late to set some resolutions and get your year on the right track.
