I read with interest an article on my news feed (on my i-phone), “9 Things You Should Do Before Having Sex”. It was by Jenna Birch in Huffpost. I guess we all could use a checklist. She listed these nine things:
Hint at sex before you have it. (well duh)
Have condoms ready.
Stash lube by your bedside.
Consider the details.
Stimulate your brain.
Make a to-do list and put it away.
Do one thing that makes you feel sexier.
Take a few deep breaths.
Start off slow.
Well I’m no great lover, but I can see that Jenna omitted several things that must be done before sex. Here’s my list of additional things to do before sex:
Find a partner (or partners), preferably of the same species.
All parties must sign a consent form.
Agree on a safe word.
Make sure all the sex toys are clean and have operating batteries.
Make sure all tie downs, chains, handcuffs, gags, blindfold, etc. are in good shape.
Agree on a place for sex (bed, couch, rug, kitchen table, desk, park, etc.)
Sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) if appropriate.
Make sure your partner’s husband, wife, and/or kids are not home.
Agree on which recreational drug to use.
Make sure the video equipment is operational.
If you use this checklist, your sexual experience is sure to be great.
