Date Night Tip #1: Get Prepared
Getting yourself ready for a sexy date night should start as soon as you wake up in the morning. Some simple daytime preparation can go a long, very sexy way later on date night.
Prepare your mind. Throughout the day, Dr. Diana Kirshner, YourTango Expert and author of the bestselling book Sealing the Deal: The Love Mentor's Guide to Lasting Love, suggests taking the time to close your eyes and imagine your favorite sexual fantasy. "Imagine your partner in that fantasy," she says. "It's a great way to heat yourself up."
Prepare your bedroom. Placing candles around the room is a sexy-time classic that no Urban Outfitters lamp will ever beat. Everyone looks their best in warm, romantic light. Put some massage oil or lotion next to the bed so you can easily seduce him with your touch. And don't forget to have your favorite lube, condoms or "toys" nearby! Because, let's face it, once you get started, you're not going to want to stop.
Prepare your body. Slip on some sexy lingerie under your clothes. It'll be your little secret all day and will help build excitement for the big reveal later that night. YourTango Expert Veronica Monet recommends two key tricks of the lady trade: high heels and perfume. "High heels accentuate the buttocks and calves in a terribly delicious way which drives men crazy with desire." But be careful not to cover yourself in a cloud of cologne, Ms. Monet adds. "Use the smallest dab on your wrists and the back of your knees. Do not put perfume on your neck, breasts or genitals—it hides the important pheromones that drive men wild."
Prepare your man. To prepare your date for a night full of passion, you'll need one thing: a cell phone to tease him with texts! Sext him a picture of the lingerie before you put it on or even the bag the lingerie came from. Turn the heat up a bit more by texting him a photo of you in a sexual position you want to try later that night with a note like "All I need is you." Get him thinking about all the dirty things he wants to do to you later. Build that tension, girl!
