Don't Sleep through your Sex Life


Don't Sleep through your Sex Life
Bobbi Palmer of Date Like a Grownup™ shares ways for women over 40 to be intimate when single.

You may have come out of a loveless, sexless marriage that lasted way too many years. Or maybe you once led a sexually fulfilling lifestyle and have since stopped doing so because you haven't had a steady relationship in your life. Maybe menopause has slowed you down.

Regardless, pleasuring yourself is a positive, healthy activity that I recommend you consider. If you're not already partaking on a somewhat regular basis, maybe it's time to explore the possibility. This might hold the answer to getting yourself excited about intimacy again. It can improve your spirits. It can help you relax and give you confidence. Oh…and it can feel great!

If you’ve never looked into adult products (aka sex toys), you may be completely shocked at the ways in which they can enhance your sexual and sensual experiences. Not only does using adult products help you during your lulls, but many men find incorporating sex toys into their love making a real turn on.

You're reading this, so I know that you're working on creating your best life possible so you can attract that special man. Being sexual and sensual is a big part of this. I challenge you to jump start your sex life now, even if the man of your dreams hasn’t appeared yet. He will; and when he does, you will be ready to enjoy all the elements of a fulfilling relationship!
