If you know or suspect sex is going to happen, first of all, make your bed. It’s just sexy. But also, have condoms (if it’s a m/f relationship) and TWO kinds of lube ready. There are water based and petroleum based lubes. Some people are sensitive, I think water based is better for sensitive skin, and in case it burns, you want to have a backup ready so it doesn’t kill the night. Same with condoms. Until the couple has found one they like, it took me and my husband several boxes to find THE ONE, think about getting a varity pack or a few small packs of various brands. They all feel different. Take them for a test drive. Have food in your fridge. You want to be a good host and have some snacks to offer. Snacks are great because, like I said, you don’t want to feel full. Things you can feed each other are a bonus. Going back to having your place smell good, I highly recommend three wick candles from bath and body works. Worth every penny. Get one that reflects your style. There’s lots to choose from. Wear clean clothes (this goes for everyone). You will not only smell good but your partner will notice if you’re not clean and that’s not sexy. LATER in the relationship, it’s totally fine to wear what you want but still, a nice rule to live up to. Have lighting options. Some people like the lights on, some people like the lights off. And some people like just a little light (like Goldie Locks, has to be just right). If you don’t have more than one setting on your lamp, candles are great for this. They’re very romantic, smell good, and provided plenty of light to see what you’re doing. Did I ramble enough? This is really just my two cents.
