Interested in slowing down your more intimate moments? We’ve compiled a list of 6 tricks on how to have slow sex.
1. Play with scents
Why does it work? Scents stimulate the limbic brain which is associated with memory, sexuality, and emotion. The Limbic system appears to be primarily responsible for our emotional life, and has a lot to do with the formation of memories. Slowing things down by focusing on scents before and during sex could trigger arousal and make the experience more memorable for you and your partner. Although, be cautious of what scents you are choosing. More than 95 percent of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals. Avoid artificial scents and look for all natural choices.
2. Use lube in unexpected ways
At Good Clean Love, our mantra is “wetter is better” and we believe that slippery is sexy. Experiment alternative uses for lube by putting lube in unexpected places for example the natural curves of your partner’s body. The curve of their neck, their lower back, hips or inner thighs. These extra few minutes of play will lengthen the duration of sex and enhance the experience.
3. Make eye contact
Incorporating eye contact to your sex is another easy trick to having slow sex. Eye contact is a gesture of respect, understanding, and interest. Looking at another person is a way of getting feedback on particular points. It is also used as a synchronizing signal. Take some moments to lock eyes and hold the eye contact for sexier engagement. Not only will this add some time to your routine, you can connect with your partner in a more meaningful way.
Ever heard of a Philematologist? Well, they are scientists who study kissing and they have found some pretty cool science to back why everyone should spend more time making out. Kissing can reduce blood pressure, burns calories and increases levels of your “feel-good” chemicals serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin in your brain. Check out this article, 8 health benefits of kissing, to learn more. Mix up your normal routine by spending more time making out during sex. Find fun ways to enhance your kisses for example using all natural love oils on your lips on the body.
5. Focus on your breathing
Another tip on how to have slow sex is mastering breathing techniques in the bedroom. This can be key to lengthening the duration of your sex because it can help you last longer. Taking deep breaths can improve your chances of having slow sex because it increases oxygen levels in the blood which promotes relaxation throughout the body. Practice taking some deep breaths whenever you get caught up in the moment to refocus your energy to avoid premature ejaculation.
6. Play hard to get
Nothing like adding a little suspense to heighten the experience and slow things down. The classic game of hard to get and making your partner wait for their climax is another trick to having slow sex. This can add more time to your foreplay, lengthening the duration and heightening the experience for you and your partner.
We hope you enjoy and join the #slowsex movement today!

When our friends at Dame recently appeared on “Megyn Kelly TODAY” to talk about the pleasure gap, we knew the term had officially gone mainstream. And for good reason. The statistics on how often women reach orgasm compared to men are striking, especially in heterosexual relationships. And yet, to many women this news isn't all that surprising. Why is that? And what can we do to elevate and validate women's pleasure?
