A Real Ball Dropper: Sexy New Years Resolutions for 2023
It’s that time of year again! You’re just about done with all of your Christmas shopping, work is winding down for the year, and you’re already over the relatives you haven’t even seen yet. This is the time when you start to consider how you want to set your intentions for your new year’s resolution. You want your version of “new year, new me” social media posts to show the world that you really have a handle on this life stuff. What better way to do that than with clarity? At Gläs, we believe the clearest thoughts happen after an orgasm, so bust a nut, think hard, and consider your sexual wellness in the New Year.
In the New Year, consider how you will communicate with your partner. If there is anything that could contribute to a more solid sexual wellness, it would be to make your first sexy new year’s resolution about stepping your communication game up. Talk with your partner(s) about what things you would like to try in and out of the bedroom. Go over your relationship rules around consent. Sometimes couples have blanket consent for activities that need to be revisited occasionally and that’s totally okay. Maybe you can make the promise to be more intentional about aftercare and debriefing after a romp. Asking what your partner needs sexually is a great way to start this conversation and could possibly lead to some midnight fireworks.
One of the best ways to go about exploring a new kink is to do it alone. This way, you can figure out what you like and how you like it with no pressure. You don’t have to worry about reciprocity and you are free to tickle your fancy… or whatever. Like all new experiences, you want to ease into this sexy new year's resolution, especially considering that by default, you are stepping outside of your comfort zone. First, set the scene. Create a space that is warm and inviting for you. This could mean low lights, candles, and soft music. It could mean pillows and incense, or it could mean choosing a time when you won’t be rushed or interrupted. Maybe you want to explore reading erotica, experimenting with a new kink, or even try new forms of titillation. Whatever you want to get into, make sure you have the right tools. There are several books and websites for every erotica you can imagine. Likewise, there is readily available kink info on the internet and there are usually tips on the safest ways to engage. For exploring your own hot spots, think about sex toys. Whether you want to try anal, prostate massage, or add pressure to your pelvic floor, playing with glass toys allows for exploration of your body in more ways than just the obvious. These toys are made with borosilicate glass and can be heated or cooled, adding to your sensory experience. Handcrafting and transparency add to the visual appeal. With a little (or a lot if you’re nasty) you’ll be slip-sliding into the new year better acquainted with yourself.
Before you even go there, no one is even suggesting that you jump out of a plane… or even a cab. But we all need to feel a sense of adventure by trying something new that’s a little bit dangerous and a bit taboo. Why not add a little spice and some spankings to your new year's resolution? If you haven’t heard, everyone has tried a little kink. They just aren’t openly discussing it because they haven’t heard that everyone is into it. And don’t think you have to start out by swinging from the chandeliers. You can start with just swinging 😈 OR you can talk to the sexy angel in your life and tell them you would like to tie them up, spank them, flog them, fist them, put their dick in a vice grip, and tweeze their nipples. But only if they consent. Expressing the sadism in your personality through your sexual appetite is more “normal” than people think, and so is masochism. Some folks love to be humiliated and told what to do, while others get off on pain. There are way too many dissertations on the pain-pleasure principle so there’s no need to get into it here. Suffice it to say we all want to spank or be spank. Figure out your lane, keeping in mind that some of us like to swerve.
Have you ever thought about what your partner feels when they are bent over, taking you in, syncing with your thrusts? Ever considered what might be going through their mind or how much trust they have to have to allow you to be physically inside of them? If this has never crossed your mind, then you could probably use an exercise in empathy. Why not make it a new year’s resolution to gain some perspective on what it means to be the “receiver” in your sexual relationships?
Alternatively, maybe you’ve seen your partner putting in work for you, but have you thought about how physically exhausting is to be in constant motion for 15-20 minutes… multiple times in a row, while maintaining a specific position, and possibly supporting another person’s weight (at least partially)?
Now, have you ever considered switching places? Not physically, but in terms of roles? Strap up with some lube and slide into a different perspective. This is not something that you should do without an open and honest conversation about needs, expectations, and consent. From there you should probably consider your approach and what the beginning steps should be. After lubing up and a little finger exploration action, think about preparing with anal beads and a training set. After your switcheroo sex, have a deep conversation about what you liked, didn’t like, and how all of it made you feel. Knowing what your partner manages *sexually* will help you accomplish your new year’s resolution to have perspective and make more empathetic and informed decisions.
Whether your partner has an A-spot or a P-spot, you’ll have them belting out Auld Lang Syne in no time!
TAKE IT EASY
The world is a heavy place, not that we’ve weighed it – ok so it’s 13,170,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 lbs – but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, we all have a lot to manage and it seems like it’s not going to lighten up. But YOU can. Not to sound cheesy, but you can teach yourself to always find the silver linings in life. You can choose to look for the good in people, and you can always find the funny. In some cases, you can take something hardcore and make it sweet. If you’ve been thinking about getting tied up but you aren’t quite sure how to bring it up, send your partner a cute message. Maybe you envision seeing your partner with a ball gag or as a dungeon slave. You could see that as a heavy conversation, but make your new year’s resolution to take control of your desires and make your fantasy a reality.
It can be daunting to try to decide what the next entire year of your life will look like. There’s a lot of pressure to “get it right” but the only new year’s resolution you need is to become a better version of yourself. Better is subjective, and the good thing about that is that you get to decide what it means for you and that includes your sexual wellness. An even better thing about that is that you can get your freak on in the process. Happy New Year!!!
