SPEND TIME TOGETHER
Psychosexual/ Relationship therapist Joanna Coker has 30 years’ experience with advising couples. “The secret to keeping your sex life fresh, even in a long-term relationship, is talking to each other and spending time together. While this might seem obvious, many couples hit problems with their sex lives. When you ask, you often find they’re rarely together in the same space.
Also, some expect their partner to know what they want, then get angry when their needs aren’t being met. Obviously, this can get confusing. Communication means asking for what you need in a reasonable manner, without resorting to confrontation.
“No matter how long you’ve been together, make time and space for each other. If money is tight, then just have a night in with a meal and a bottle of wine. You can still dress up and make it feel like a special event—and make sure the television stays off.”
