couples counseling


Being sexual is one of the healthiest things a couple can do. When couples have healthy sex lives, they report being happier overall. There is no reason why you can’t share an active and healthy sex life for many years. Try the strategies listed below to keep the key ingredients in your relationship.


1- Have Separate Interests


This adds more excitement so you miss each other. These outlets can make you feel self-expressed and more confident when you return home to your partner.


You can get there from here.


2- Love Doing Things Together

Consider physical activity outside of the bedroom as a great way to bond. Participating in a challenge together can make you feel more connected.


3- Maintain Physical Affection


Even if you’re tired, tense or upset engaging in kissing and cuddling is essential for maintaining an emotional and physical bond.

4- Write Down Your Fantasies


This can help you explore possible activities you think might be a turn on for your partner too. Try thinking of an experience or movie that aroused and write it down to share with your partner.


5- Ask for What You Want


Couples who have great sex do so because they have talked about it. Great sex happens when you ask for what you want.

6- Let Go


Let go of your inhibitions. Try to relax more. Forget your ideas about “the way sex is supposed to look”. Experiment or try something you haven’t done in a while.

Sexual and emotional intimacy are linked. A relationship without passion is incomplete. It’s just a friendship. Eventually, frustrations about the lack of sexual connection will ruin the friendship too.
