Heads up: We’re going to get a bit real today–but we’ve got ideas to transform your sex life and foreplay in the STEAMIEST way possible. {wink!}  

I think almost anyone would love to kick things up a notch when it comes to their sexy time…
In fact, I bet you can relate to at least one of these common sex life struggles:

  1. Do you or your spouse struggle to really ANTICIPATE and crave each other’s touch like you used to? 
  2. Have you or your spouse ever wondered about FRESH FOREPLAY ideas but been nervous of what you’d find online?
  3. Have you or your spouse ever found physical intimacy to be more of a DUTY on your chore-list rather than a fun, bonding experience?
  4. Do you or your spouse feel a bit bored of ROUTINE SEX but are unsure how to bring up fresh ideas?

When Anticipating Sex Feels so Last Season

When is the last time you REALLY anticipated sex? 

We’re talking about a sex life where you are:

  • EMOTIONALLY in sync together 
  • DESIRING and PINING for your spouse’s touch
  • MENTALLY prepared for time in the bedroom
  • PLANNING ahead to be well-rested for sex
  • ROMANTICALLY wooed to the point of excitement
  • FEELING as though you and your spouse are pursuing each other on MORE than just a physical level?

If it felt attainable, I think most of us would say THAT is what we want! Whether we relate more to a low or high drive, a great sex life doesn’t sound too bad! Well, it can start here. But first, we have to show you HOW…

Intimacy is SO MUCH MORE than SEX. In fact… an AMAZING, mutually anticipated sex life often starts with OTHER forms of intimacy.

It takes intimacy to make soul-shaking love and to trust that you can play in the depths of your raw desire… You feel accepted and known, and you feel alive and intrigued, and you are able to reveal your deepest sexual desires. You can let go of inhibitions while remaining deeply connected to your lover and explore your sensual self with freedom and abandon within the safety of love and intimacy.
Cheryl Fraser, PhD Writer for The Gottman Institute

imagine a sex life filled with anticipation and desire,
free of routine and duty…

This is why we created the ForePLAY Fixes subscription… to help you and your sweetie truly connect and begin the fun ANTICIPATION process before you even reach the bedroom. Because research shows that the most anticipated, BEST SEX really does start OUTSIDE the bedroom.

When you get your emotional needs met and feel emotionally connected to your partner (that is, you have emotional intimacy), then you’re often more able and willing to connect sexually. In other words, emotional intimacy often bolsters sexual intimacy.
Kristie Overstreet, Clinical Sexologist & Psychotherapist

ForePLAY Fixes is exactly the challenge that you and your spouse need to spark some steamy new energy into your sex life! 

Whether you are feeling…

  • Frustrated or disappointed that your spouse doesn’t seem to desire or long for physical intimacy the way you hope they would…


  • Exhausted by the transition between LIFE & sexy bedroom time and discouraged that your desire doesn’t flow as easily as it used to… 

The ForePLAY Fixes challenge is made for you! We’ve got to tell you all about it!

When Foreplay Needs to be Forefront

Foreplay is one of the most IMPORTANT components to a thriving sex life but finding CLASSY ideas can be a biiiiit sketch if you’re looking online. #yikes

Foreplay can change everything in your sex life

When Duty Sex is Your Reality

Chore vs. Pleasure

Okay… let’s just cut right to the chase here.

Has sex ever felt like another CHORE on your lengthy, exhausting to-do list? 

Or maybe you’ve experienced the other end:

Have you ever felt like your spouse gave in to your request for sex simply because they felt obligated?

Duty sex is when sexual interactions shift from an enjoyable expression of play, connection, intimacy, and togetherness to a divisive issue that creates dread and turns sex into a duty undertaken as an obligation or to avoid feelings of guilt or obligation.
Michelle Mays, LPC, CSAT-S. 
Founder of PartnerHope and Center for Relational Recovery.

No matter which side of this equation you find yourself, there’s a better way!

kick duty sex to the curb!

Around ten years ago, research on duty sex was published by a University Department of Psychology in Norway stating that FOUR out of ten, “married or cohabiting couples, either the woman, the man, or both suffer from distressing reduced sexual desire.”

This research shows us that most of our sex lives have one thing in common: 

  • A higher drive spouse
  • A lower drive spouse

Even though this potential pain point in our relationships is extremely universal, handling sex-pectations in a healthy way can be a big challenge! 

Here at The Dating Divas, we strongly believe that sex is intended to be mutually enjoyed and should be free of duty or the need to perform.

…So we designed a solution for the common pain points!

Wondering if ForePLAY Fixes is right for you? Check out these reviews:

My husband and I started… when it first launched. He had recently lost his job and while our sex life wasn’t suffering I wanted to give him a gift that was something special for him to look forward to in a stressful time. Aaaaand we might have enjoyed the texts too much… expecting baby #2 in August! It’s safe to say we LOVE the prompts, and I hope to keep them going even during pregnancy!
– Bekah

[It] has provided me and my husband with more ways to enjoy foreplay and to get creative in the bedroom! We look forward to the sexy, yet classy, weekly texts and what follows after! 😉
