Communication is very important in every relationship. It also facilitates in sexual desires. When we openly talk to our partner, there seems to be a bond between us and for many people, it is said that the connection between you and your partner is a major factor and a step closer to having sexual activities. We all know how amazing it feels when you’re sitting with your partner on the couch and having an expressive conversation instead of sitting and being on your phones. When this happens, there is less chance of having the connection and has less chances of leading to sex. It’s preferred to take out time from everything and have that regular chit chat with your partner.

2.Be Open to Talk About Sex

When you both are having a good time, get your hands in action. For example, you can give each other leg or foot massages while you watch the television. Isn’t it cute that you guys are having a good time and you put your head on his lap while he strokes your hair? That’s the best time to talk about sex. You can tell him everything related to this topic which you like and what you wish to have. Let your partner be open about his thought too. Know what he likes and what he wishes to have.

3.Putting In Effort and Make Sex a Priority

One of the main things we’ve heard about sex is that it should be impulsive and unforced. Sex is never impulsive though, it’s just the feeling that we get. When going on dates, planning everything was very important. What to wear, where to eat, what to talk about etc. If sex followed by any chance, it didn’t seem to be so random. When you’re in a long term relationship, obviously it can’t be so sudden that you find yourself butt-naked in bed. You need to find the perfect time to be with each other. You need to think ahead for it, find a day when you both are at home, and make that day your sex day. Even if you haven’t had it in a while, talk about it and plan to make it happen soon.
