7 ways to improve your sex life during back-to-school season
What comes to mind when you think of fall and back-to-school season? You might think of crisp fall days, cooler cozy nights, and fresh starts. And for adult students, it can also be a great opportunity to ignite (or reignite) your sex life.
Whether you’re wondering how to hook up with a certain girl or guy who’s caught your eye, or you’re psyching yourself up for a potentially awkward first time, now is the time to set your plans in motion. Without further ado, here are 7 tips to take advantage of back-to-school season and work on your sex life.
1. Switch up your routine
There are many amazing benefits to changing up your routine, including better mental health, a boost in creativity, and more happiness. With class now in session, your days are looking different anyway, so what better time to shake things up even more?
It’s easy to do – you could sign up for a yoga class or a recreational sports league, or it could be something as simple as taking a different route to school or saying yes to an invitation you’d typically decline. You never know where you may meet someone new, and varying your routine is certain to create more opportunities to make a connection.
2. Make the first move
Thinking about hooking up with a girl or guy you have your eye on? First step: you’ve gotta make a move.
With a new season comes an opportunity for new beginnings. So go ahead, make the first move and set your new beginning in motion. Chat up your current crush, or slip that cute barista your number – there’s nothing sexier than confidence.
3. Try something (or someone) new
If you’re dating someone, hit up Kama Sutra and try a new position. Or, try having sex in a new spot. You could consider waiting until your roomies have cleared out before hooking up in the living room or in the shower, for example. Steamy!
If you don’t have a partner and are interested in meeting someone, think about dating outside your comfort zone. You might be stuck in a rut without even realizing it! Set up a date with someone who wouldn’t normally be your type, or even your usual sexual orientation if you’ve been feeling curious. There is something very sexy about dating someone new during back-to-school season, and you never know who you might hit it off with.

4. Feel free to experiment
Why not use back-to-school season as a time to experiment sexually? This could mean delving into more oral sex adventures, letting your fantasies run wild in your mind, and/or having fun with masturbation.
This will help you figure out what you like – what you want more of and what you to do less (or none) of. It definitely doesn’t always have to be about intercourse. And if you’re a virgin, knowing what you like sexually will help make that potentially awkward first time a little less so.

6. Put yourself out there
You’re back at school, you’re likely excited about everything the future holds – it’s the perfect time to take a deep breath and really put yourself out there. Yes, that means you too, introverts!
Talk to that cutie in class, hit up the dating apps – go ahead and take a chance on someone. Even bad dates can increase your confidence, broaden your experience, and get you in a good place for Mr. or Mrs. Right. Or just Mr. or Mrs. Right Now. You do you.

7. Kick your self-care into high gear
Self-care should always be a priority, no matter what time of year it is. When you feel good inside and out, you will be in a better position to attract a new partner and cultivate a sizzling sex life.
Make it your mission to create a self-care routine and stick to it, whether this means regularly hitting the gym, meditating daily, reading a book, working on creative hobbies, getting out for a walk, or relaxing in a bubble bath.
For some, this may also mean focusing on the physical – getting a different haircut, a mani or pedi, or hey, just shaving your legs if that’s what you’re into. Looks aren’t everything, but feeling good about your appearance will give you the confidence you need to experience a truly satisfying sex life.
Whatever this new school season brings, we hope it brings you sexual satisfaction beyond your wildest dreams.
