Get More Sleep In
While one might assume that in order to have great sex, two people may have to sacrifice sleep, it turns out that both things go hand-in-hand. Research from the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) has revealed poor sleep to be directly related with a lack of sexual satisfaction in women.
Data collected from more than 90,000 women found that participants who slept less than seven or eight hours a night received less fulfillment from their sexual encounters. However, this didn’t affect how many times they engaged in sexual intercourse.

Get A TV For Your Bedroom
No, we’re not even kidding. A 2014 survey revealed that couples who had a TV in their bedroom had up to twice as much sex compared to those who reserve TV time for the lounge. Of the 74 per cent of participants who answered ‘Yes’ to the question, “Do you have a TV in your bedroom?”, 67 per cent agreed that the bedroom television time added to the quality and frequency of sexy time.
32 per cent believed their healthy sex lives were enhanced by being able to simultaneously watch their favourite shows.
Paint The Room Purple

Red came in at a close second with a commendable 3.18 sessions per week (here’s looking at you, Christian Grey), with blue sitting on 3.14 times at a close third.

Ask For A Raise
A study published in the International Journal of Manpower collected the data of 6,000-plus Greek men and women in a bid to find out if their rate of pay contributed to their sexual frequency in any way.
Now would be a good time to request that meeting with your boss because as it happens, researchers found that those who were paid 5 per cent more than other participants were engaging in sexual activity the most at four or more times a week.
