As we are all well aware, every relationship goes through phases as it matures. For some couples, while they still do love each other they somehow find their relationship in an undesirable place. Their relationship lacks intimacy and any physical connection. Their sex life has completely dried up.
Many reasons can cause this lack of intimacy to occur and thankfully it does not mean that your relationship has hit rock bottom and it’s time to go your separate ways. While the current state of your sex life is less than desirable you and your partner can work together to improve, restore and in many cases make your sex life and intimacy better than it has ever been.
As you start to work on your intimacy remember that your relationship did not turn into what it is overnight and consequently will not turn around as quickly either. This is not meant to scare you, it’s simply a reminder there will be some work involved to right the intimacy ship.
The great thing is this will truly be a labour of love and you and your partner will definitely benefit from your efforts not just in the short term but long after you have made these changes.
To get answers on how to improve your intimacy Dr. Renee Horowitz, an obstetrician, gynecologist, sex expert and founder of the Center for Sexual Wellness shared with Canadian Living her five-step plan for having more sex and how to make it great.
