Try to savor the journey just as much as you anticipate your destination. Take the focus off conception by paying attention to the sensa­tions that accompany sex. Anticipate the pleasure, not the end result. Buy a sex toy that you wouldn’t ordinar­ily. Wear a sexy negligee (or silky boxers, if you’re a guy) instead of your usual PJs. Touch and kiss each other in places you usually might not, like the eyelids, wrists, and ankles. Spread chocolate- and strawberry-flavored K-Y Yours Plus Mine Kissable Sensations For the Body, on your non-genital erogenous zones and invite your partner to remove it, slowly.
