Making your bedroom a sex haven

Get rid of the notion that your bedroom is simply for sleeping. The master suite in your home, even if it's scarcely bigger than a closet, is also where you are most likely to get busy. If you really want to up your chances of scoring, then it's wise to take a few steps to turn your drab bedroom into a haven of lust and love.

For starters, clean up! No one likes to make love in a room when there is clothing strewn about. Beyond picking up clutter, take some time to scrub any surfaces, vacuum the floor and get those dust bunnies out from under the bed. Clean sheets are certainly important, and the higher the thread count the better. Sometimes it can be difficult to anticipate when you will be getting lucky, so keeping your bedroom clean at all times is a safe move.

Once you've gotten the basics of cleanliness out of the way, it's time to add some decor. Sure, sex is all about your partner, but the room's atmosphere can make a difference. You're an adult now, so it's time to take down the Justin Bieber or Brittney Spears posters. Opt instead for some art, or consider painting your walls an exciting new color. Candles can be a great addition as well – not only do they add romance, they can also bring a pleasant aroma.

Lastly, make sure you are prepared. Your room can be immaculate and romantic, but if you have to search high and low for condoms, then you're going to lose that loving feeling pretty quickly. Store your protection right next to the bed, and while you're at it, pick up some personal lubricant to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
