The joy of intimacy begins in the kitchen

Although people think intimacy begins in the bedroom, the truth is it begins in the kitchen -- where the heart of a relationship is found.

  • A couple's sexual satisfaction is a very important topic in any marriage. It plays a big role in maintaining a happy marriage amidst the chaos that comes from work, stress and children. Unfortunately, few people can say that they find joy in their intimacy. Rather, they consider it to be a routine.

  • Many know they are unsatisfied without knowing what to do about it. The truth is that you do not require many things to enjoy your intimacy. You find more satisfaction with simple things, such as communication, curiosity and a good sense of humor.

  • Many people think that intimacy begins in the bedroom. The truth is, it begins in the kitchen. The quality of intimacy is directly related to the quality of the couple's relationship. Therefore, if the quality of a relationship is suffering, then intimacy will also suffer. Thus, the joy of intimacy begins in the kitchen, the center of the home where meals are prepared, we have conversations, share meals and laugh.

  • Few things can motivate a couple to be romantic as does cooking together, enjoying what they have prepared with their own hands and cleaning the kitchen. As the saying goes, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach."

  • Our intimacy increases when we work hard at our relationship. Even when our intimacy is positive, we can enhance it by following these three suggestions:

  • 1. Communicate

  • It is important for couples to talk frequently about how they feel about their intimacy, and if there are things they can improve. We usually think that our spouse knows what we like. This is not the case. We must be specific with our spouse and let him or her know what we like and what helps us feel good.

  • 2. Know your body

  • Get a good book that explains basic physical anatomy and read about which body parts are more sensitive to intimate touch. Then, talk to your spouse about how this relates to both of you and try new things.

  • 3. Be creative

  • Be creative and avoid falling into a routine. Even if you don't do any of these things frequently, the time you put into this will be enough. What really matters is setting aside the time for you and your spouse.
