When you know that sex is on the way, it can feel both calming and exciting.
When couples come in for help in the bedroom, they frequently tell me that they do not discuss the issue. The less you talk about it, the less likely you are to have the sex you so desperately need. Communicate with empathy and compassion. "It's been a long time since we had sex."
"I miss you" is more effective than "How come we haven't had sex?! What's the matter with you?! You are a terrible partner!"
Discuss what has changed recently that has contributed to the lack of sex.
Remind each other of what you used to enjoy about sex. Discuss your fantasies, turn-on's, and new things you'd like to try. Sometimes starting the conversation is the most difficult part.
It's actually fun to talk about sex once you're talking!
Sometimes sex becomes the same old thing - shake things up! What worked for years may no longer be effective. Read erotica, watch pornography together, and buy sex toys.
Begin a conversation about your sexual desires and interests.
Incorporate new activities in the bedroom; alter your usual sexual routine and menu.
Wearing heels, listening to sexy music, experimenting with new sexual positions, or having sex in a different part of the house are just a few examples.
6. Incorporate mindfulness.
Couples can fall into a boring sexual routine as well as go into auto-pilot mode.
By default, auto-pilot means you're zoned out and not present in the moment.
Get up and tune in!
Slow down and pay attention to all your senses (sight, smell, touch, taste).
Touching different parts of your partner's body can become exponentially exciting and arousing if you slow down and take your time.
Rather than racing to the end, fully immerse yourself in the entire sex experience.
7. Take turns initiating.
Typically, the longer you are in a relationship, the more established your dynamic becomes, including who initiates sex.
A typical sexual dance is not necessarily a problem, but it can be if one of you is tired of your role.
If you are always the initiator, you may doubt your desirability, or you may feel pressured if your partner is always the initiator.
Even if you are content with your current roles, it can be exciting to try something new.
Imagine your surprise if your partner acts out of character and initiates sex!
If you are typically more passive, you may find it exciting and energising to take on a more active/initiator role.
8. Learn about sex and sexual issues.
If you have a sexual disorder (erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, vaginismus, dyspareunia, anorgasmia, etc.), learn more about it.
It can help to normalize your symptoms, reducing stress and anxiety, and teaching you how to cope with the condition.
You may decide to seek counseling/sex therapy to benefit from a professional's advice in dealing with the problem.
9. Prioritize physical affection.
When sex becomes a source of contention in a relationship, physical affection often comes to a halt. It is critical to stay physically connected.
Touching reminds us that we are loved and creates a sense of closeness.
Physical touch releases "feel-good" hormones (oxytocin), decreases stress hormones (cortisol), and lowers blood pressure.
That is to say, physical touch has a positive effect on our brains, which is especially important if we are struggling emotionally due to a lack of sex.
10. Some couples are content with a sexless relationship.
If you are not one of those couples and want to reintroduce a healthy sexual connection, decide that sex is important and take the necessary steps.
Remember that you must actively participate in keeping sex alive; it will not sustain itself.
There is a good chance of regaining a satisfying sex life for couples who are emotionally intimate and willing to put in the effort.
