I turned fifty this year (I do not feel it at all, by the way) and I can remember when I was in my teens and twenties thinking fifty was old. Boy was I wrong. In fact, my forties were the best years of my life so far, and fifty has been amazing. I almost feel embarrassed to admit I thought women in their fifties and older no longer had a sex life. It doesn’t hurt, though, to use K-Y® LiquiBeads to help with the freedom to be spontaneous whenever #TheMoodStrikes
I picked up a box of K-Y® Liquibeads while I was Christmas shopping at Target a couple of weeks ago. In a round about way it is part of a Christmas gift (sshhh, it’s a secret).
My husband and I have been together for almost 24 years. I can’t tell you how odd that is to say… because it really doesn’t seem like we’ve been together that long. He is my soul mate. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had our ups and downs over the years, but we have a wonderfully exciting marriage.
It’s work. Sometimes hard work. But most of the time, it’s fun work. What I mean by that is that we keep the romance alive.
Other than keeping an open line of communication with your spouse, being respectful and honest with each other… keeping the romance alive is crucial to a long-lasting relationship.
Just because you’ve been with someone for years doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be exciting, and I don’t mean just intimacy. Believe me, there can be lots of intimacy, but there’s a lot more to a relationship.
And quite frankly, if your significant other is romantic and thoughtful… it will lead to more intimate moments. Just saying.
I got pregnant later in life (I was 38) and then went through early menopause. I had no one to talk to about this because all my friends were my age or younger so they couldn’t relate. My biggest symptom and complaint was dryness. Yes, vaginal dryness.
No laughing matter, I’ll tell ya. Plus, it seems to be a taboo subject. No one wants to talk about it.
I’m here to tell you that it is normal, you are not alone, BUT… you do not have to suffer. There are products like K-Y® Liquibeads to give you the freedom to be spontaneous whenever #themoodstrikes. It’s so easy to use K-Y® Liquibeads. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 (4, 5, 6)…
- Separate the paper backing from the blister pack.
- Remove an applicator from the plastic wrap.
- Place an OVULE firmly into the wider end of the applicator (this way it won’t fall out).
- Gently insert applicator into the vagina as far as it will go comfortably. You can stand or lie down to do this, whichever is more comfortable for you.
- While holding the barrel with one hand, push the plunger all the way to insert the OVULE, inserting as far back into the vagina as possible and remove the entire applicator.
- Throw away applicator after use.
You’re ready for intimacy whenever the time is right for YOU. As I mentioned above, romance helps a whole lot, too, though.
Here are some of the ways that my husband and I keep the romance alive:
Leave love notes or poetry for each other. My husband has written beautiful original poems for me over the years. He is a great writer, but you don’t have to be a great writer, just write from your heart.
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and it’s true. I show my husband I care by preparing good, healthy meals for him, but having a huge sweet tooth, I will make a special dessert for him from time to time. He especially loves cupcakes.
My husband knows how much I love coffee. I drink it all day and he knows how important that first morning cup is, so he sometimes makes it extra special for me.
Say “Thank YOU!” Notice the things your spouse does — the little things — and simply say thank you. It makes you feel appreciated.
Talk. Not about every day things, like the kids, the bills, what’s for dinner – but about each other. How are you doing? What do you want or need, right now? Can I do anything for you? And pay compliments and tell each other, “I love you”. Whisper sweet nothings, but don’t whisper them!
There are so many things you can do to keep the romance alive in your long-term relationship, but I promise you it is worth the time and effort to be romantic. You can keep the fires burning and have the freedom to be spontaneous when the mood strikes no matter what your age or how long you’ve been married.

What a great post, seriously subject aside I love how passionate you are about your love with your husband that is so refreshing and beautiful. Congrats on your years together and MANY more
Aw, thank you, Colleen! I feel so blessed to have such a romantic husband and that we really do have a great passion, even after all these years. 🙂
Aww.. It’s really wonderful to have a soulmate. I believe in Love so much, it’s such a nice feeling. I’m happy for you two ^^
Thank you! It is indeed a very nice feeling. 🙂
Congratulations on being married 24 years! We’re celebrating our 24th this coming February. I totally agree that life, especially the sex life is more exciting than it was when I was in my twenties and I thought the same thing about getting older too…so glad I was so wrong ;)>
I’m going to try this for sure :).
Well we’ve lived together for almost 24, but only married almost 13 years.:) I’m glad I was wrong, too! 😀 You definitely should try it!
This is great advice!
This is a fantastic idea I will use it as soon as possible.
I’ve heard of this but never thought of using. Thanks for sharing the information, now I’d like to give it a try.
Wow 24 years! That is wonderful! My husband and I have been together for 6 married for 4…so we have some catching up to do! haha! I love how loving you still are with each other. My husband still act just as lovey dovey as when we first started dating. lol! I’ve never actually heard of this product at all. I had no idea it even existed. Such an amazing idea and so long lasting!
I am very intrigued Donna! So what exactly do these beads do? I might have to check the ingredients. I’m a bit skeptical about inserting chemicals into my vajayjay. 🙂
Brenda, the ingredient is Dimethicone… a silicone approved by the FDA. It’s a skin protectannt. I know it’s used in a lot of beauty products to protect skin. 🙂
Romance? Haha… I have no idea. With three kids and a husband who works all the time (out of state). Romance is something that is long gone. BUT I would love to apply these tips to rekindle the romance. 😉
OMG, I love you! You know the secrets of a long-term successful marriage! Yes, talk about each other; Yes, do simple things that show you care; and YES, keep romance & intimacy alive!!! Marriage can be the most amazing thing in the world, if you nurture and keep things fresh. Congratulations!!
Yes, I love the fact that there are products that help get the mood started. KY makes great personal intimacy products.
Congrats on being married 24 years! I am all for keeping romance & intimacy alive!!!
I hope that my husband and I love one another as much as you and your husband do when we’ve been married longer than 5 years. These are some really sweet ideas and I need to implement them. We all know marriage takes work but sometimes we think we’re working on it, when really we’re hindering it by NOT working on it. Work is baking your Celiac Disease husband gluten free cookies by surprise one night. I should do that tonight. For sure. #client
Congratulations on 24 years! My husband and I got married when we were pretty young (by today’s standards). I love that we got to grow up together & now we’re growing old together.
You’ve nailed down all the ways ot make a relationship successful!
With a marriage, you definitely have to keep the romance alive no matter how long you’ve been together. It sounds like you have everything down pat!
KY makes some good products. Not sure I’d go with this one but nice to know we have options!
We have to make sure to spend time together sans kid. When we go too long without those “date nights” tension starts to build and we can’t communicate as effortlessly.
Love that you realize that marriage is work. It amazes me that it still surprises me that at times we have to really work at it. It is worth it! 🙂
Congratulations on 24 years! My husband and I got married last May but we’ve been together for ever. Glad marriage has been great for you!
All marriages definitely take work and effort. I am glad you found something that enables you and your husband to have play time, anytime!
