Challenge #19: Turn each other on in one of these unexpected ways.

Foreplay is about creating a bonding experience, allowing you and your partner to connect through activities that will promote closeness and intimacy. Small gestures that say "I love you" bring a sense of love and kindness to your relationship and will help create emotional security. Emotional security is necessary in order to create intimacy. So here are some sexy gestures to do just that:

Talk about him in public. One of the most important things to a guy is to feel that he's making you happy. It's always important to let him know that you appreciate him so compliments go a long way. But when you also speak his accolades in public then it really speaks loudly. You're letting the world know what a great guy you have. Recount a story of when he did something you really liked. It doesn't have to be something of monumental proportion; just recognize his effort and how much it meant to you. —Karen Sherman

Really listen to each other. Learn about your partner's frustrations, wishes and dreams. When we are able to listen and understand each other, we start to create the perfect environment for foreplay. —Marta Rocha

Look (and smell) irresistible. Visual and olfactory cues are the most obvious and immediate ways to turn your partner on. Your appearance and scent are the front line stimulators of a man's attention and libido. So spritz on your perfume, slip into your sexy dress and dab on some natural-looking makeup. A man loves a confident woman who is in tune with her femininity. —Michelle Morand

On your next road trip, wear a very loose blouse with no bra. On roads outside the city, no one is likely to notice if he reaches over from the driver's seat. When he can hardly resist you any longer, pull into a park or quiet country road and fool around (but don't give in to sex yet). Make him wait until you've reached your destination. —Moreah Vestan

Let him watch the game in peace. Mosts guys enjoy watching their favorite ball games but are also expecting that you're going to hassle them about it. Surprise him by having something else to do so that he knows you won’t be upset by his watching the game. You get extra points for fixing snacks or even sitting down to watch it with him (as long as you don't distract him by asking too many questions). —Karen Sherman

Make one of your partner's lifelong wishes come true. Show him/her how you are attuned to him. Play detective by listening to cues from regular conversations you have with your partner such as "My mother used to make the best chocolate cake" or "I've always wanted to go skiing." These kind of comments give you important information about your partner's dreams ... so then, make them come true! Surprises are like gifts. It's not about pleasing ourselves; it's about giving our partners what they want. —Marta Rocha

Follow through on promises made. Be a partner who inspires trust and respect. This creates a genuine, natural warmth and desire in him for you that keeps his heart open and his hormones charged. And remember, this equation works both ways. The truth is, when a woman is respectfully clear, direct about what she needs and wants, the man in her life feels more comfortable, confident and secure in the relationship. Keep the trust and he won't want to be anywhere else. —Michelle Morand

Write love letters to your partner. Today, we think that writing letters is a thing of the past; however, it's a gesture that shows how invested you are in the relationship and how important this person is to you. Every three months, write a letter to your partner about the great moments both of you have experienced together and how you have grown stronger as a couple. This ensures that both of you are on the same track and offers an opportunity to discuss topics that may have not been resolved between the two of you. —Marta Rocha

Make breakfast in bed. This isn't so original, but it still carries lots of weight on many different levels. Wake up early (letting him sleep in) and cook up a breakfast of his favorite foods. You're sending the message that he deserves some pampering. If you also wear something sexy as you serve the breakfast, it's bound to be a total hit! —Karen Sherman

Set up an adventurous date. Get out of the routine of going to restaurants and the movies, and plan a fun adventure together such as zip-lining or rock-climbing. Fun creates deep pleasure and laughter, leading to a greater sense of safety with our partners. When you feel safe in your relationship, you start to relax and feel comfortable, creating the perfect environment for true intimacy. —Marta Rocha

Share a steamy bath. On a cool day, draw a bath with her favorite bath salts when she gets home from work? To tease each other, pretend you aren't lovers. Kiss a shoulder, give a back rub with a soapy cloth, have a radio playing romantic music near the tub, but deny yourselves overtly sexual touch while you lounge in the tub for 20 minutes. If either of you are tempted to go beyond the platonic fantasy, dry each other off and let your hands wander ... —Moreah Vestan

Support your partner's interests and hobbies. Just because you share different interests to change that doesn't mean you're no longer compatible as a couple. Nevertheless, in order to maintain closeness, it's important to support and encourage your partner's interests and hobbies through encouraging words, giving him time and space to engage in those activities, and for you to be supportive by being physically present. If your partner enjoys playing basketball, cheer him on at his next game. By supporting and encouraging him, you will create a stronger connection between the two of you. —Marta Rocha

Write erotic notes to each other. Sit down with a pen and paper and write notes to each other beginning with this sentence: "When I think about sex with you, I feel ... " Don't stop for 10 minutes. Then, each of you take turns reading your sentences aloud in a teasing voice. —Moreah Vestan
