Want to hear a surprising sex tip?

Whenever I’ve read sex books (for magazine work, I swear!), they always seem to recommend a bunch of tricks: acrobatics, role play, the whole shebang. But I’ve found one of the sexiest things is to just…

…be quiet. Lie with your partner in bed–with your clothes on or off, it doesn’t matter. No talking or kissing; just lie together. Be still. Feel the warmth of each other. Look into each other’s eyes, trace his eyebrows, hug tightly, rub her back, hold hands. Wrap your arms around each other. Press your bodies close together.

But absolutely no kissing or talking.

This quiet closeness is surprisingly profound. And really, really, really sexy. The tension builds to a fever pitch, and once you finally can’t take it any more and start kissing, it’s like fireworks are exploding. You feel incredibly connected, and even the most basic sex will suddenly be off the charts.

Have you ever done this? It’s amazing! I’m blushing! Try it this weekend;)

P.S. How long do you wait to sleep with someone? And an easy tip for keeping the sparks alive.
