And who out there doesn't like to hear how great they are in bed, or how sexy they look, or how much they turn their partner on?

A note of caution: use these words sparingly. Too much of a good thing can become something that feels less heart-felt and much less genuine than you intended. Like the couple you know that is always saying and doing over the top gushy things – it doesn't seem real and they seem like they're trying too hard. You know when it's the right time, and if you say it from your heart you can't go wrong. Make your partner feel sexy, special, like they’re the only one you could imagine yourself with. Those are the words you want running through their head when they’ve had a long day and they recall their favorite memory. The memory of those words will rekindle that fire all by themselves.
