I'm up for trying new things, just need ideas and whys in which I can suggest it to my husband.
First things first, you need to define each of your mode of lovemaking:
#1 Sensation focused - an eyes closed of making love where you focus on how your body responds to your partner.
#2 Partner engagement - this is where pleasure is derived from emotionally engaging with your partner.
#3 Role Play - an eyes open experience where fantasies are acted out and you each may imagine yourself as someone else.
If often happens in marriages where there will be a "conflict of mode" in sexuality. Perhaps one partner wants act out a fantasy and have you pretend you are someone else. Meanwhile the other partner struggles with their self confidence to try and pretend to be someone they are not as it prevents them from emotionally engaging their partner as themselves.
Sometimes different modes of sexuality can compliment one another. If one person is sensation focused, while the other person wants to role play, a fantasy can be acted out based on this where one person becomes a massage therapist and the other person enjoys relaxing, or one person plays a doctor while the other person enjoys closing their eyes during a playful "procedure." Normally these two modes conflict, but if the partner desiring role play can accommodate a scenario that allows their partner to relax and enjoy new sensations then it can spice things up a lot. If the partner role playing asks the person desiring sensations to start acting out a script, then things fall apart and these ideas to spice things up become a disaster.
So the first step is to define you modes as a couple. Talk about them and see where certain desires may conflict and/or compliment each other for having fun. THEN based on that you can start finding some ideas to create some serious sparks in your bedroom.
