It’s the day that strikes fear in the heart of most men who are in a relationship with a woman. No I’m not talking about the day they meet the parents, get married, or even have a baby. No, this day is far more stressful for most men and it’s Valentine’s Day.
My husband, usually breaks into a cold sweat several weeks before the big reveal of his gift, subtly dropping hints about the gift he’s chosen for me, to gauge whether or not he made the right choice. Of course, after 20 years of marriage, all I really want is a handwritten card – as opposed to one filled with prose written by someone else and my husband’s name signed at the bottom. I want to bear witness to my husband’s expressions of love for me.

Buy some champagne, get some sexy lingerie, aromatherapy candles, draw a bubble bath and be a giggly, newly in-love, uninhibited couple again. let go of all the hats you wear Mom, Dad, husband, wife, employee and be just one thing for two hours: Two adults in love.
#5 Indulge in a QUICKIE.
Once you are both relaxed- get your romance on. Sometimes a romantic, spontaneous quickie is very exciting and revitalizing to a marriage. Dive into your bedroom or any other part of your home, draw the curtains, and turn on some sexy music. The fact that you have to be quick about it, can make it that much more exciting. And of course it’s always fun to attempt a Nine and a Half Weeks scenario…. This is probably one of the most well known film seduction scenes and acting it out with your lover can lead to some heated passionate exchanges. Take your lover, blindfold him (and if you’re really feeling frisky bind his hands together, too). Have him sit on a chair, take an ice cube and gently glide it down the nape of his neck and on any other erogenous zones you find interesting. Tease and titillate your lover with this ice cube while planting intermittent butterfly kisses on every exposed body part all while whispering seductive phrases into his ear. After five minutes he will be begging you to ravish him.
