Hottest Honeymoon Sex Tips, From the Experts

Putting too much pressure on honeymoon sex to be out-of-this-world amazing (especially if your first time) can sometimes create anxiety for it to go perfectly, warns Jenni Skyler, Ph.D., L.M.F.T. and C.S.T., sex therapist, sexologist and licensed marriage and family therapist for "That anxiety will ultimately be self-sabotaging," she says. "Going slow, especially the first night, creating low pressure expectations, and allowing the body to flow from a place of relaxation will be most helpful."

If your main goal is to have a lot of great sex, opt for a chill honeymoon that’s not to strenuous or demanding. "If you plan a trip filled with activities, you're less likely to have the time and energy for high-quality intimacy and connection," says Antonia Hall, psychologist, sex and relationship expert and author of The Ultimate Guide to a Multi-Orgasmic Life. "Instead plan an easy-going vacation on a beach, vineyard or another low-key place that inspires romance and cuddly activities."

While we might not consider talking things out as part of a healthy sex life, it most certainly is, according to experts. "One of the biggest hurdles that hinders a rocking sex life is a lack of communication between partners," says Hall. "Saying ‘yes,’ or ‘more of that’ can let your partner know what is working." Likewise, she recommends paying close attention to what your partner prefers, so you don't slip into a rut when you're back at home.

if you and your partner have discussed new sex positions, sex toys, role play or light bondage and haven't tried it yet, Dr. Skyler says that your honeymoon could be a fun time to bring in a little novelty. "A little novelty can usually bring some extra sexual heat to an erotic honeymoon experience," she adds.
