How to do it: Start sitting, with your legs crossed, and your back straight. Extend both arms out to your sides at shoulder height, extending them slightly behind your body, while making two “thumbs up” with your hands. As you inhale, roll your thumbs forward towards the floor (without lowering your arms) and then exhale and point your thumbs straight up. Now inhale and point the thumbs away and behind you and then exhale and point the thumbs straight up. Repeat 8 times.
How it will heat things up: This move helps to strengthen your arms and shoulder muscles used in a variety of intimate positions, including hugging and woman on top. It also creates pressure on the nerves around the neck and shoulders, releasing feel-good endorphins in your brain—and these feel-good endorphins help enhance your sexual mood, Anderson says.
