Every time I see an Old Spice commercial (like this one), an Axe hair-gel commercial or a TAG body-spray commercial, I just shake my head. According to the commercials, if you just use these products, women will be uncontrollably attracted to you sexually. Now men, I’ll be the first to admit, it is important to your wife that you smell good, BUT a quick shot of TAG body-spray is not going to make her jump you in the grocery store.
That got me to thinking about things that really turn a woman on. First thing husbands need to understand when it comes to sex is that men are like a microwave and women are more like a slow-cooker … meaning she needs you to start the romance early in the day. Husbands, notice the list below … all these things start BEFORE bedtime. MEANING if you just wait for bedtime to get “romantic” … you’re probably too late! The commercials may say Tag body-spray is the way to go, but my money is on these…
- Give your wife a back or foot rub, no strings attached.
- Cook dinner one night and clean up the kitchen when you’re done.
- Buy her a gift certificate for a manicure, pedicure or massage … for no reason at all.
- Help pick up and clean the house, or help the kids with their homework.
- Cool it with the criticism. Instead praise her publicly and/or privately. Tell her how beautiful she looks.
- Stay home with the kids and let her get out of the house by herself. Or take the kids out of the house and let her stay home by herself, her preference.
- Do a chore for her that she doesn’t like to do.
- Surprise her with her favorite candy, and don’t make a wise crack about the calories.
- Call her from work just to say hello.
- Tell your wife you get turned on just thinking about her.
- Take her on a weekly date.
So, wives … can you add some more I’ve missed?
