Cosmopolitan (India) - - YOU, YOU, YOU -

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.”
