As we mentioned in Part 1 of this series, we’re on a mission to change the way you think about sex, your workouts and help you see how each can enhance the other. In Part 1, we explained how to manage stress through sex and workouts and feel more confident in your birthday suit. We saved the best for last though, read on as we cover how to boost your sex-drive and your moves, with exercise!
The Problem: I have success-drive, but no sex-drive.
As modern women, we have developed an incredible drive for success. We start companies, graduate at the top of our class, climb up the corporate ladder and run charities. We’ve been taught to use our minds, our reasoning, our drive (aka our masculine qualities) and commonly ignore our intuition, our gut instincts, our creativity and our emotions (aka our feminine qualities). There is nothing wrong with sharp reasoning and unwavering drive, but all of that intellectual action happens in our head and we easily lose touch with all the magic that happens in our bodies: the origin of intuition, creativity and, most importantly, sensuality. So, if you’re the kind of girl who’s kicking ass at work and not making waves in the bedroom, it’s probably because you’re too in your head, and not in touch with your body.
The Sexy Solution: Working out!
Exercise gets you in touch with your feminine side because feminine energy lives in your body. Moving, sweating and getting the blood flowing will get you very connected to the energy and beauty of your body. When you stop living your life from the neck up, you can tap into your feminine energy, your sensuality, your creativity and naturally raise your libido. Best workout to build sensuality? Dance.
The Problem: I’m never quite sure if I’m doing the right thing.
A lot of women bog themselves down in comparisons. The silliest part? Often we aren’t even sure what we’re comparing ourselves too! We’re just “positive” it’s something better. This mentality has got to go.
The Sexy Solution: Bring the gym into the bedroom.
If you know how to exercise, you know how to have great sex. You know how to squat, lunge, squeeze, contract, pick up the pace or slow it down. You’ve done exercises in standing, seated and floor positions. You know what to do! So be sexy, be confident, (maybe even leave the light on!) and, most importantly, enjoy yourself.
