As the buzz continues over the FDA’s approval of a libido drug for women, let us not forget this old-school truth: Plenty of proven pleasure-inducing sex tactics do not involve a prescription (or even any money). Consider these bedroom go-tos from Health.

Check out these four yoga moves for better sex from Health‘s contributing fitness editor Kristin McGee.
