1. Book a Sexcation
It can be hard to find alone time when your day is a juggle between work, your chores and the kids’ schedules. The easiest solution for this is to book a babysitter – or activate the grandparents – and sneak away on a sexcation. First, check into a steamy hotel like The Scarlet Singapore and its Passion Room, which features a Jacuzzi (skinny dipping, anyone?) on a private outdoor terrace. The luxe suite also has a king-sized, four-poster bed and is perfect for cocooning yourself in over the weekend with your partner.

2. R is for Roleplay
Sit down with your partner and have an honest chat about your deepest sexual fantasies and desires. Then, turn that into a bucket list and work your way through it. Not only will this open up lines of communication between you and your partner, it’ll also add plenty of satisfaction when you cross things off of the list together.
3. Go Pole Dancing
Talk about multi-tasking! In case you didn’t already know, pole dancing is the newest way to stay fit and seduce your partner. But don’t worry if you’re not the most flexible, because that’s easily solved with a session at The Brass Barre. Sign up for one of the studio’s beginner’s lessons (trial classes start from $15) to get acquainted with the pole and boost your strength at the same time.

4. Do Nothing but Kiss
It’s always given very little thought, but kissing can turn an otherwise benign act into something naughty. Block out a minimum of 30 minutes and forbid yourself and your partner from doing anything other than kissing. Take the time to get creative with your lips and explore body parts that are often neglected during intercourse.
5. Play Games
The easiest way to building a great relationship is to have fun together. Try classic games such as strip poker or strip beer pong. Go the extra mile and gift your partner with a coupon booklet that lists a range of sexy things you can do for each other. It’s an exercise of creativity that’s also beneficial for the both of you.
6. Get Some Sexy Snaps
Part of having an amazing love life is to first feel confident about you. Give your self-confidence a little boost with a boudoir photoshoot at The Boudoir Photographer Singapore (session fees start from $550). Founder Carolyn Soemarjono is experienced in creating sexy and elegant shots in a safe and comfy environment. On the day of your shoot, you’ll get to pick three outfits and indulge in chocolates and champagne while getting your hair and makeup done. Not sure how to strike a pose? Fret not, because Carolyn has plenty of handy tips – all you have to do is ask.

7. Try Some Tech Help
You don’t have to do all the hard work yourself. Instead, let technology do half of it for you. For starters, consider sexting with your partner once an hour throughout a chosen day. Better yet, turn it into a competition to see who can send the raciest photos. PS: If you’re worried about revenge porn, then crop your head out of the shots. If your partner’s more loquacious than visual, then craft a steamy vignette or two to get his or her imagination going. Alternatively, take a swing with foreplay apps such as Dirty Game – Hot Truth Or Dare, Desire, or iKamasutra – available for download on the iTunes App Store or Google Play store – which are designed to boost intimacy through sexy activities or positions.
8. Take a Tantra Workshop
Ask any sexpert for the keys to a good love life, and she or he will tell you that it lies in showing respect, kindness and communication. Tantra workshops, such as the ones held at Tantra Path, can help you reconnect and realign your relationship as a couple. Key techniques practiced in these tantra sessions include meditation, Q&A and sharing. In addition to private sessions, Tantra Path also has group sessions and a mentorship programme. Prices are available upon request.
