Why Does Keeping Things Spicy In the Bedroom Matter?

Studies show that couples who prioritize a healthy and fulfilling sexual relationship have:

  • A stronger emotional bond 
  • Safety for open communication and trust 
  • More satisfaction overall with the relationship 
  • An easier time withstanding challenges

Even more, couples who have a satisfying sex life can experience less daily stress. This is thanks to the chemical oxytocin (AKA the love hormone) that is released at the height of pleasure. Oxytocin not only minimizes cortisol in your body (which causes you to feel stressed) but also bonds you to your partner for a double win.

Fun Things to Spice Up the Bedroom: The Mentionables Netflix and Chill Massage Candle

While this may seem like a cliché suggestion for fun things to spice up the bedroom, don’t underestimate the power of a good massage. If sex is just a quickie at the end of the night after the kids are in bed, then a slow, intimate massage can be a welcome change of pace. 

Our Netflix and Chill candle not only helps to set the romantic mood with soft lighting and a delicious berry scent, but it doubles as a massage oil, as well. 

To use the candle: Light it and let it burn for at least 20 minutes. Once a generous amount of wax has melted, blow out the flame and pour or scoop the wax with a finger onto your partner’s skin. Spread the wax around and begin massaging for a soothing break from the day's grind. 

PROTIP: Create a playlist during the massage that helps you or your partner relax and focus on the pleasurable sensations. Ocean, nature sounds, or spa music like this playlist works well.

Fun Things to Spice Up the Bedroom: Using Toys in the Bedroom

If you’re new to toys, don’t worry – there are many different kinds out there, meaning there’s bound to be one or two that suit you. A bullet vibrator, for example, is a great beginner toy for those who may be scared to dive in. Use your creativity here and be willing to explore. 

It may be trial and error at first, but remember – sex is meant to be fun, so enjoy playing! 

Toys range from vibrators to handcuffs to blindfolds and beyond. Toys can help provide unique sensations and stimulate various erogenous zones more intensely, making for stronger and various kinds of orgasms. You may even be able to experience multiple orgasms.

Anything goes, as long as you two are having fun.

At Mentionables, we have gorgeous lingerie pieces in all different cuts, colors, fabrics, and sizes at prices that won’t break the bank. We display all our lingerie model-free so that you can envision yourself wearing each piece and feel safe letting your partner shop, too.
