There are plenty of things you can do in the bedroom to make things exciting. Mirrors can be a great way to enhance your love life. Even if you don’t use them all the time, it is good to switch things up a bit.
What it Really Looks Like to Be Physically Active
Would you believe that people being intimate looks nothing like it does on television? What a shocker, right? There is little to nothing about movie sex that is true to life.
While I fast forward through inappropriate scenes as quick as possible, enough flashes before the screen for me to know it is all wrong. These images and actions can crowd our minds when we visualize physical intimacy with our spouses.
Getting in front of the mirror with your spouse can be an eye opening experience. One that I think you’ll enjoy.
Why You Should Use Mirrors in The Bedroom
Aside from being an eye opening experience about what it really looks like to be intimate, getting in front of the mirror is great for your love life. Seeing what is going on has many benefits for you and your spouse. Here are some of the top reasons you should use mirrors.
Men are very visual and enjoy seeing their wives naked. Not only do husbands benefit from seeing their reflection, but so do women. During intercourse or other acts of foreplay, mirrors can help a woman feel more stimulated. Since women have a hard time staying mentally focused during love making, seeing what is going on can really help.
Makes You Feel Very Attractive
Looking at you and your lover in the mirror can do great things for your self-esteem if you let it. While you are looking at you and your spouse being intimate, you can see the true beauty in the gift God gave you. It is really important that you allow yourself to feel sexy during intimate times. Reflections are really helpful for this.
Builds Excitement During Your Encounter
If you allow yourself to feel sexy while you gaze at what is going on, it will build excitement during your encounter. This can serve as a way to make the time feel a lot more fun. When your heart is pumping and your mind is racing, it makes physical intimacy a lot better.
Gets You Moving
There is little to no way to be dormant when you are watching what is going on. Seeing your reflection will get you excited and cause you to desire to do more. You will find that your sense of adventure in the bedroom increases.
Gives You Images to Recall Later
Like I said earlier, women have a hard time keeping their mind focused during sex. Having these images stored in your mind gives you something to visualize. I know that for myself, if I find my mind wandering to the grocery list, I can just recall things I’ve seen in the mirror.
Getting Comfortable in Front of the Mirror
I realize that getting in front of the mirror while being intimate is probably not the top priority for everyone. If you have low self-esteem and don’t like the way you look, this can be a scary thing. Before you dare to bare in front of the mirror, I have a few suggestions for you.
- Learn to see yourself as the beautiful and sexy person you are. Follow my “How to Feel Beautiful” series for weekly challenges to help you with this.
- Spend time undressed in front of the mirror. If you can get comfortable with yourself unclothed in front of the mirror, you will have an easier time doing this with your spouse.
- Start out using a smaller mirror. Can’t fathom the thought of seeing your entire reflection? Start out using a handheld mirror that you can use to see what is going on in smaller areas.
I hope that these tips will help you to feel more comfortable using mirrors in your intimate moments.
