With beautiful weather comes beautiful new romances. So we met with columnist Dan Savage to get a few tips on making love work. Not only did her offer some brutally honest truths about relationships, but he also shared advice on keeping the flame alive in the bedroom. Read on Dan’s three G’s for improving intimacy with your partner.

 

1. Good

 

For many people, love-making is an important part of a relationship. So Dan’s first G refers to how good things are in the bedroom! “You have to acquire some skills,” he insists. “A human being is a lot more complicated than a violin, and no one expects to pick up a violin the first time and play it perfectly.”

 

2. Giving

 

The second “G” stands for giving…as in giving pleasure. “Sometimes you give pleasure without expectation of immediate return,” explains Dan. “Reciprocity is a rolling concept. It doesn't have to be right away.”

 

3. Game

 

And what about Dan’s third G? That stands for game – as in be game for anything…within reason! As they say, variety is the spice of life, so be open to being playful and trying new things. Be open-minded, but don’t do anything you’re totally uncomfortable with, or feel is out of the question.

 

Intimacy is crucial in many relationships – and now you’ve got three ways to help you keep the spark alive!
