A person can only do the exact same thing so many times before they get bored, so it’s in your best interest to do new things with your partner. Grab your partner’s hand and go to these ten artsy, helpful, and sexy couple classes you can take together for a sweet and fun relationship.

1. Relieve Stress in Massage Class

Join your partner for a sensual, stress-relieving experience that will calm your nerves and put you at ease. Make sure you pay attention to the pleasure points that cause the most satisfaction so you can please your partner after those busy, stressful days at the office. You just might put them in the mood for some frisky fun after you work out all of their kinks.

2. Express Yourself in Acting Class

Honest, open communication is a priority for any couple that desires long-lasting relationship success. Performing scenes and monologues in front of others will improve your ability to communicate, remove barriers that prevent authentic dialogue, and make you feel more comfortable with being vulnerable with you partner.

3. Mix a Cocktail in Mixology Class

Alcohol is tons of fun (as long as you don’t get carried away with it), but you can’t deny that going to the bar isn’t the most affordable thing in the world. You will discover tasty drink recipes that will make your partner’s taste-buds scream with delight. In addition, you’ll be able to impress your friends with professional-quality cocktails that leave them begging for more.

4. Make Tasty Treats in Cooking Class

If you’re a grown adult, there is no excuse for not having a grasp on how to cook meals at home. Also, if only one half of the relationship is responsible for all meal preparation due to the other half not having a clue what to do in the kitchen, you’ll now be able to split this chore as equals for a more fair relationship. You will become able to woo your partner by surprising them with breakfast in bed or an elaborate romantic dinner after work. (Don’t forget to take the kids to a sitter so you can enjoy a precious moment with just the two of you!)

5. Shake Your Money-Maker in Dance Class

Fellas: I know some of you don’t like to dance, but the odds are likely that you wife or girlfriend loves it. Even if you feel silly, think about how much fun she would have in a swing, tango, or ballroom dancing class. You’ll also get some much-needed exercise that will help you lose weight and be more confident in your body.

6. Pursue Fitness in a Group Exercise Class

It can be hard to find the motivation to exercise alone, so check out the group exercise class schedules at your area gyms. Many gyms, such as the YMCA and Anytime Fitness, offer a wide variety of exercise classes that are suitable for a range of experience levels and personal preferences. Some common offerings include boot camp, yoga, kickboxing, water aerobics, and group power (a resistance training class with movements synchronized to empowering music). Find something suitable for your goals that you can both agree on, and get moving!

7. Create Something Meaningful in Art Class

Whether you want to make a painting, compile a scrapbook, or sew a quilt is entirely up to you. You’ll be able to combine your talents to create something meaningful as a team, a bonding experience that no happy couple could argue with. As an added bonus, you’ll be able to create meaningful homemade gifts that impress your friends and save you money during birthdays and holidays.

8. Prepare for an Overseas Trip in Language Class

Traveling to new, exciting, exotic countries is an amazing experience, but it can be a bit stressful if you don’t have a grasp on the native language. Plan an overseas trip with at least a year to spare and take a language class so you’ll both be able to talk to the locals without depending on a language book for the entire trip.

9. Improve Your Pad in a Home Improvement Class

If you’d like to do some home remodeling, check out stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s in your area and ask if they offer any classes on the projects you would like to pursue.

10. Make Your Partner Say, “Mmm,” in Kama Sutra Class

Who wouldn’t like to have a more explosive and pleasurable sex life with their partner? Talking about sex might be considered taboo in some cultures, but it shouldn’t be. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve intimacy with a person you love and care about very much. Going to a Kama Sutra class will teach you new ways to explore your partner’s body that you never thought of before, and will help you become more comfortable with communicating your desires in bed.
