IF YOU’VE JUST STARTED A NEW ROMANCE..
Body language of desire – Use body language wisely to signal desire to a new partner. Run your fingers up and down your cocktail straw or slowly circle the rim of your glass.
Or trace your fingertips leisurely from your neckline to decolletage – a green light to their subconscious that will give them confidence.
Pucker up – Tempt each other with sensational snogs. Kisses are pleasurable and produce the important bonding hormone oxytocin.
Try the “medieval necklet” kiss, planting kisses from behind their ear, down their neck, around to their other ear. This stimulates nerve endings along these sensitive erogenous zones.
Keep it simple – You may be nervous slipping between the sheets with a new partner but they feel the same too.
Siski Green, author of How to Blow his Mind in Bed (Piatkus, £.9.99), says: “Don’t worry about exotic techniques, turn off the phone and TV then turn up the thermostat.
“The warmth makes you want to get cosy.First stroke their erogenous zones, then lightly rub them, before using a circular motion.
“This makes exploring every inch of them exciting.”
Food of love – Having dinner at home means you can use ingredients that have an added aphrodisiac kick.
A simple stir-fry becomes a sexy dish if you use ginger, garlic and chilli. These seasonings increase your circulation and that in turn sparks your desire.
Spoon-feed each other dark chocolate dessert as it aids the release of feel-good chemicals like endorphins.
Show them the romance – Download or buy a CD of hits from the year they were born.
You may not have known them long but this romantic gesture shows you are happy they were born!
Thrill-seekers – Relationship coach Jo Hemmings at www.johemmings.co.uk, says: “If confident in this lust-filled stage, go Fifty Shades and enjoy a sexy role-play game using a blindfold and a feather.
“If you don’t have these to hand, use an airline mask, scarf or a stocking, plus a soft brush or anything faux fur.
“Take turns teasing, stroking and whispering to each other.”
Make a memory – Take a flask and some lovely light bites to the best outdoors spot in town and watch the stars come out.
Afterwards you can go for drinks, dinner or back to yours feeling all romantic.
Be playful – New couples need confidence to let go and being playful helps.
Sexologist Dr Trina Read, of VivaXO.com, says: “You should both write down three things you would like to try and slip these into your Valentine’s cards.
“This is a fantastic way to help your partner understand things you would like to try and visa versa.”
New couples can beat inflated Valentine’s restaurant prices by doing something fun and different like bowling or a game of pool.
Finish with candlelit drinks and snacks at yours. Research shows these are the standout memories couples love most.
