That's right: Spice up your sex life by not having sex.

"Take turns making requests until you're ready for intercourse," suggests Eliza Holland, CNM, MSN, and chairperson of the Connecticut Chapter of the American College of Nurse Midwives. "Today you get to decide. And you might just want a massage. Then it's his turn. Intercourse happens when you both agree it's time."

Instead of sex, build the anticipation for sex. Touch, tease and explore each other's bodies. Or revisit old favorites. Remember what it was like to just kiss? Maybe making out in the backseat of your car will make you feel like teenagers again, without a care in the world.
