Unleash your inner minx with these 10 moves. The result? Awesome sex.

Sexy things to turn him on

1. Create a scentsation

Does your guy’s cologne drive you wild? Well imagine the effect your perfume has on him! Next time you’re about to leave his place, spritz some perfume (one to two sprays MAX – you don’t want to stink out the place) on his pillows. Next time he gets into bed he’ll automatically think of you. Cue: anticipation for your next meeting. Give yourself a pat on the back you minx, you…

2. Get fruity

Next time you head over to his place for dinner, bring watermelon as an appetiser. Not only does it go hand in hand with summer, it’ll get you both in the mood. Seriously. A study by the Texas A&M Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center found that watermelon is made up of vital nutrients that can deliver Viagra-like effects to the body's blood vessels.

3. Do it somewhere new

Next time you find yourselves alone in a carpark or are walking up the stairs to his apartment, be spontaneous and pull him into the stairwell. Start kissing him and if you want to take things further, have sex with your legs wrapped around him and your back against the wall. It’s sure to blow. His. Mind.

4. Embrace your “adorkableness”

Who cares if you don’t possess the overt sexiness of Jessica Rabbit? In the wise words of Aussie actress Teresa Palmer, play up your so called dorky traits – your confidence and quirkiness will be a turn on: “I went through a phase of trying to be cool, which is just not who I am. Once I let that go, and embraced my less typically sexy aspects – like my dorkiness – I found that those are the things that make me sexy.”

5. Kiss kiss

How long has it been since you had a serious kiss fest with your guy? “Kissing is really underestimated. It’s something that can make you both feel good and it really shows your partner that you love them,” explains sex and relationship expert Dr Nikki Goldstein. Plus, it releases oxytocin, the hormone that promotes calmness and connection, so you can expect an intense sex session to follow. Cha-ching.

6. Get your avo on

Want to make a meal for your guy? Choose Mexican next time and whip up some guacamole. Lots of guacamole. Why? Avocados are jam-packed with vitamin E which helps your body produce hormones like testosterone, oestrogen and progesterone. These guys go onto stimulate sexual responses like – get this – vaginal lubrication and clitoral swelling. Needless to say, he’ll love this result.

7. Your sexy toolkit

With the weather all warm and delightful, it’s nice to have the option to get it on outdoors, like if you’re lying on the beach at night. To make it happen, pack condoms in your bag at all times for off-the-cuff sex sessions and wear easy-to-remove clothing (hello: cute sundress). He’ll be stoked that you were organised enough to allow it to happen.

8. Seeing red

Follow Rita Ora and make your signature summer lip a fun orangey-red hue. Scientists at the University of Manchester found that red is considered the sexiest colour and draws attention from the opposite sex to your mouth. Translation: your lippie will turn him on. If that doesn’t convince you, a French study also found that waitresses who wore rep lippie scored more tips… from men.

9. Snap that

Great sex is all about anticipation. If you know you’re going to see your man that night. Send him a flirty text during the day and then a sexy snap of you (for god’s sake don’t include your head in the shot) later on. He won’t be able to keep his hands off you when you finally see each other in person. Not game enough to send a pic? Download the Snapchat app and send one that will automatically delete after he’s viewed it.

10. Yoga for you

Do your health and your sex life a favour by heading to a yoga session. Many of the standing positions that involve carrying your own weight force you to work your pelvic floor muscles. “The stronger they are, the more intense the orgasm, and the ability to experience multiple intense orgasms increases… who doesn't want that?” says sex and relationship expert Chantelle Austin. It’ll make sex feel better for both of you.
