K-Y Intimacy Experiment Day 9: Dangerous Liasons

Let's face it: after you've had sex with the same person hundreds or thousands of times, it's no longer quite as thrilling as it was the first few times. I know that my partner and I have had some issues with sex become too routine after being together for a few years. According to the booklet, "when it comes to attraction, a little unpredictability goes a long way. It spikes the brain's natural amphetamines, dopamine and norepinephrine, which play a big role in sexual arousal." So, if you feel that things have gotten a little boring, you may want to try doing something exciting- and maybe slightly dangerous- with your partner.

The suggested exercise for today was going out and doing something fresh, exciting, and maybe a bit scarey with my partner. Unfortunately, we weren't able to do that today due to lack of funds/time, but sometime this summer I'd like to go white water rafting with him. I've done that once before, and it was both fun and scarey, so I think it fits the bill. Here are some more suggestions, in case you need help coming up with ideas:
  • Hang gliding
  • Sky diving
  • Go-kart racing
  • Hiking
  • Kayaking
  • Playing paintball
  • Riding roller coasters or other thrill rides
In the bedroom, you could spice things up with some "dangerous" play such as tying each other up or using blindfolds. Just use your imagination!
