If you want your partner to be happy with your performance, then there are a few things you need to do before you even take your clothes off. In fact, you should start prepping for sex from the moment you wake up. If you have a strong feeling that you’ll be getting lucky on any particular day, then you need to make it your mission to keep your body looking banging. Since you’re better safe than sorry, here’s what you should always do before sex:

Take A Shower Or Use Deodorant

Body odor is never attractive, especially when you’re touching skin with another person. Do your partner a favor and take a quick shower before you get under the sheets with them. If you don’t have time to wash up, then you should at least run a stick of deodorant under your arms or spray some perfume on your body. Just get rid of any nasty smells.

Shave And Trim Your Body Hair

You don’t have to shave your body smooth from your head to your toes. Just make sure that you trim the areas that your partner will be kissing, so that they don’t end up with hair in their mouth. There’s nothing that ruins the moment like a stray strand of hair in your teeth.

Eat A Good Meal

You don’t want to eat anything stinky before you have sex, but you definitely want to have something in your stomach. If you don’t, then you’re going to run out of energy pretty quickly. Besides, you don’t want your tummy to be grumbling when the room is quiet and you’re trying to seem sexy.

Get Your Condoms Ready

Unless you want a newborn baby or an STD, you need to use protection every single time you have sex. To avoid ruining the moment, make sure that you have condoms on your nightstand or in your pant’s pocket, so that they’re easy to reach. If they’re not, then you’re just going to have to wait even longer to have sex.

Place Your Phone Out Of Reach

It’s rude to use your phone at the dinner table, and it’s even ruder to use it when you’re sleeping with someone. If it beeps, you’re going to have the urge to check it to see who’s contacting you. Even if you resist the temptation, thinking about it is still going to be on your mind. It’s best to just turn it off, or at least on silent, while you’re banging.

Brush Your Teeth

Being a good kisser takes more than talent—it also takes a clean mouth. If you have toothpaste with you, make sure to brush your teeth before you initiate anything. If you don’t, you should at least search for a piece of gum or a mint to freshen up.
