A lot of people make New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, and whether or not they make it resolution, a lot of people would also like to have more sex in the coming year. Jessica Perez tells you how to combine the two.
Having sex can make you feel great about your body. If the sex is with someone you care about, sex can become more than just another “fun” event. Sex can be a tool you can use to make your relationship stronger. However, did you know that sex could also make you thinner?

Working on your range of movement in the gym is crucial, but it’s not until you’re home and between the sheets that the benefits of being limber really start to show. The following yoga move, which comes courtesy of yoga sports specialist Diane Lee (above), promotes flexibility in the hip flexors, groin and quadriceps, to boost both your stamina and your dynamism in the bedroom.
Improve sexual stamina
When you lean over your partner in the missionary position your quadriceps need to lengthen as your hamstrings contract. “If the hamstrings are weak and the quads tight, then these muscles will soon fatigue and the rhythm and fluidity during the height of passion will be lost,” says Lee. “The following exercise should help to improve stamina through strengthening both the hamstring and quads for the dynamic movements needed in both missionary and doggy.” Do it two or three times a week and you should start to see significant improvements in your bedroom performance in less than a month.

Like anything, if you practice, you will get better at sex and increase your sexual pleasure, say Dr. Michelle Mars and Nurse Blair Bishop.
Sex is good but better sex is better. Good sex is about technique, love and intimacy. Our brains are our biggest sex organs but our bodies carry out our sexual desires. A body that is fit for sex is better able to accomplish our sexual wishes.
