While downward-facing dog isn't a sex move, it could help you spice things up in the boudoir (or the kitchen, laundry room or SUV - but more on that in a minute). Sexually unsatisfied women who began practicing yoga reported increased levels of arousal, desire and better orgasms, according to a recent study published in the December 2008 issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Practicing yoga increases flexibility, promotes weight loss and helps strengthen your muscles, including the pelvic floor muscles, but it also helps to get you back in touch with yourself. It can ease anxiety and fatigue -- and what mom doesn't have those excuses for passing on sex? All of these benefits add up to feeling better about your body and achieving better orgasms. Two poses with sex-enhancing perks to try: Upavista Konasana and Baddha Konasana.
