Life does have a habit of getting in the way. Taking care of the kids, cleaning your house, being tired from working, and other daily factors can seem to limit the time you can spend getting intimate with your partner. It is important to make time for one another. Whether you set aside a specific date night or make time before bed during the week, it is important that you and your partner give each other this quality time to spend with one another.
Communicate With One Another
Open communication is very important to any relationship and is vital to having a great sex life. Being able to share your feelings with one another will make you feel more comfortable in your relationship and bring you and your partner closer together. If you and your partner are able to talk about your feelings or desires, this will also make your intimate life more enjoyable.
Be Comfortable With Your Body
The way we feel about ourselves can definitely affect how we behave in the bedroom. It is understandable that you may feel self conscious about your body. With magazine ads that portray men and women with perfect bodies, it is not a surprise that we look at ourselves at times with discontent. However, It is important to understand that no one is perfect. Be comfortable with all of your extra curves. If you or your partner are continuing to feel unhappy about your bodies, then take the time to spend with each other and work out together. Even going for a brisk walk can help you to get in shape and give you and your partner the opportunity to do something together. If you are self conscious about the way you look, it will impact how you interact with your partner.
It is important to relax when you are getting intimate with your partner. If your mind is on work, money, or other things besides what is going on in the bedroom, this can negatively affect your sexual experience. Let yourself go. When you are having sex, this can also be a good stress relief too. Just enjoy it.

Don't just rush into the intercourse part. Take time to explore one another. Get a little frisky. Sex can become boring if it starts to feel like a routine. I was talking to a girlfriend of mine who is very dissatisfied with her sex life with her husband because the foreplay is lacking. As much as she is a sexual person, her husband felt that his penis was enough to satisfy her and rushed through the foreplay.
