A Cure for Relationship Complacency: Lingerie
Keeping the spark alive in long-term relationships can be challenging. Here's how for less than $50.

Statistically, most couples strong in the romance department: frequent sex, spontaneity, passion. Then a few months passes, and comfort sets in. Then... a series of events create a deeper level of what can only be described as complacency:

  • They get married.
  • They have a baby.
  • She goes back to work (or is inundated with the boredom of homelife), he gets back to the grind.
  • They get tired and into the humdrum of toddlerhood.
  • He stops shaving... and so does she. Both wear sweats on the weekend.
  • Out come the fuzzy bunny slippers


Rinse. Repeat.

 

The truth is, far too many couples experience long-term relationships this way. You want to feel and look good/hot/sexy in and out of the bedroom, to please your significant other and feel like their very own supermodel, but the truth is you're happy wearing old boxers and a t-shirt. Plus, in this recession, what's the point of spending money on some see-through, lacy get-up when naked is FREE!?

The Why: Lingerie is one of the most inexpensive—and often overlooked—ways of rekindling romance in the bedroom... for both men and women.

First, please allow me a disclaimer: I cannot speak for all men or women. There are a wide variety of opinions and wants... and I can only offer a combination of my opinions and experiences, as well as my impressions of the opinions of other men I've spoken with... but that's all.
