Keeping Things Lusty | The Love Issue | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Keeping Things Lusty

Whether you've just started dating or you're 12 years, two kids, a bad back and 10 pounds of belly fat into a relationship, keeping your love life from getting boring can be difficult. We went to the unofficial sex experts of Bend - or "sexperts" if you're getting all technical - the staff of the Pretty Pussycat. Here's their advice that will almost certainly help you spice up your love life and make sure you'll get lucky on a regular basis.


1. Take the time to show your lover how much you appreciate them and your time together. Plan an exotic vacation right in your home. Start with a few decorations to bring the essence of your chosen spot into your home and follow it with a romantic dinner for two centered around the local cuisine.

2. Surprise your lover. You can give unexpected flowers, a back massage or a new sexy piece of lingerie.

3. Don't be afraid to try new things. Cooking or dancing classes can add a new excitement to your relationship.

4. Fulfill a fantasy for your partner. Is he a football fan? Dress up as a cheerleader and show him you support his passions.

5. Turn off the phone and snuggle on the couch with a steamy movie. It's OK to ignore the outside world to show your loved one how much they mean to you, even if it's only for an hour.
