Have We Lost the Art of Love Making?


Have We Lost the Art of Love Making?
With so many pressures and bells & whistles, maybe we've lost the art of love making.

So what do we do?

I know for many of you, the art of love making is alive and well. And for many more, you are quite satisfied with your sex life regardless of the form it takes. But for those of you that miss love-making as opposed to f#*&ing your partner, here's what I suggest.


  • Slow down, take your time
  • Spend more time kissing and caressing
  • Remember that love making is a journey, not a destination
  • Find ways to seduce your partner, build the tension throughout the day (or week, whatever it takes)
  • Create an atmosphere—know  that looking into each other's eyes is atmosphere-as corny as that may sound
  • Spend the entire day (or at least a good part of it) in bed every once in a while; make love making the priority.
  • Shut out the rest of the world and create one for just the two of you.
  • Remember, intimacy is sexy. Familiarity is passion. Connecting is hot. And making love is one of the best ways to say 'I love you'.

Any other ideas?  I'd love to hear them.
