Switch up your sex life with bedtime stories for couples

Toni Sicola|2022.01.28

If you grew up reading fairytales before bed as a little one, you might find it relaxing to wind down with an adult bedtime story. What's an adult bedtime story, you ask?

For some, a bedtime story serves the primary purpose of lulling you to sleep. With insomnia becoming an ever-growing issue among American adults, this type of story is intentionally a little bit boring, a little bit slow, often overly descriptive, and read to you by a soft, gentle, relaxing voice (if it’s in an audio format).

For other grownups, a short bedtime story for couples is a great way to spice up your sex life—a far more exciting proposition.

If things have been feeling a little stagnant in the bedroom, or if you're looking to try out a new way to get turned on, audio-based adult bedtime stories for couples might just be the answer. Get lost in the story together, sharing your bedroom time with sexy voices in exciting scenarios that will awaken your imagination and prompt you to get it on with your partner. Who knows, you might even get a few ideas for new positions or games to play in bed.

Whether you're into the slow and quiet bedtime stories to help you and your partner wind down or the kind that will reignite your flame and get things rolling, we've got you covered with a good bedtime story on the Dipsea app.

Benefits of listening together

Sometimes, in a long-term relationship, things can become routine and monotonous. It's part of the deal in a committed, worthy relationship to try and keep things exciting, but it's also totally normal to run out of ideas—or steam—over time. After all, “'til death do us part” can last quite a while. So it's time to get creative.

Maybe you've been curious about dipping your toe into non-monogamy and are wondering what it might feel like to have another couple in the room with the two of you. Listen to a story together to find out how you each react to it, and use it as fodder for dirty talk between the sheets.

Or maybe non-monogamy sounds terrible to you, but you love the idea of eavesdropping on another couple's adventures (more of a voyeuristic fantasy). Maybe listening to a story of two people meeting for the first time and getting it on, or two others reuniting after years apart and sneaking into a coat closet at a high school reunion is just what you need to kick off your own love-making sesh with your partner.

In any case, listening to sexy bedtime stories together can serve as a jumping-off point to bring you and your partner closer together, increase intimacy, and turn up the heat in your bedroom. It's also a great way to start a conversation about how you might be able to shake things up—maybe a bedtime story gives you an idea for a creative date you could go on. Or it might inspire you to try something new like pegging or light bondage. You never know, but bedtime stories for adults are a safe way to explore the possibilities!

Sexy and romantic bedtime stories for couples

Start with a good bedtime story from Dipea to get you and your partner going. Variety is the spice of life, isn't it? We think so, so our short bedtime stories span across race, sexuality, and gender. You'll find the shorter trysts, where the characters get right to the hot and heavy point, and longer stories and series where you get to know the players and become invested in their journey together—more like a love story or romance novel that comes in segments.

Dipsea offers the soft and sensual as well as the rough and wild, the kinks and fetishes, group sex stories, business trip and vacation hookups, and more. With stories like these and a variety of voices telling them, there's something for everyone, and surely something you and your partner can agree on in the perfect way.

Check out Falling I, the beginning of a multi-part series in which Layla, an American in London, wakes up the next day after a steamy night with Niall, a charming young man who sweeps her off her feet. Is Niall a prince charming type or more of a one-night-stand guy? Find out if their night together turns into the ultimate love story, a long-distance relationship, or remains a single chance encounter that neither of them will ever forget.

Or, for a more rustic story with an outdoorsy sex scene that dips its toe into the world of exhibitionism, head over to Wild Hearts I. This one is also the beginning of a multi-part series in which the narrator, a city girl volunteering on a farm outside of town, is seduced by a woman for the first time.

Hudson is tasked with showing the narrator the ropes and assigning her tasks. The two flirt playfully, gently negging each other, and eventually end up horizontal next to a creek. It's definitely not love at first sight, but the magnetism between these two becomes obvious pretty quickly. Let yourself get swept away with this short story, you might find that you want to listen to the whole series with your partner, all snuggled up in bed.

There are loads of stories to choose from, whether you're looking for a beautiful woman's voice, a sultry man's point of view, or a non-binary voice.

Bedtime stories to wind down to

Just as a quick additional note, there's also something super sweet and romantic about falling asleep to a bedtime story with your partner. If you play your cards right, you might even get a sex dream out of the whole thing.

The trick to finding the best bedtime stories to fall asleep to is to look for the ones that feature a nice, relaxing voice, and possibly a soundscape in the background. You and your partner can wind down together to the sounds of crashing waves, the crackling of a campfire, and the dreamy voice of a stranger shepherding you into dreamland.

There are tons of apps and YouTube channels out there that feature just the soundscape, and there are plenty of e-books that drone on and on to put you to sleep. But with Dipsea bedtime stories, the combination of a relaxing soundscape, a sensual voice, and a story just slow and rhythmic enough will lull you both into a deep sleep.

To find stories just like these, open up your Dipsea app, look for the word "Sleep" with a little moon logo above it, and explore the various categories of adult bedtime stories. You'll see Soundscapes, Sleep Overs, Dreamscapes, and Bedtime Stories. Each one puts you into a state of relaxation and calm as you doze off beside your partner.
