So, just how are committed couples keeping things hot? The survey revealed some surprising ways:

—Porn was actually the most popular bedroom booster: 57 percent of survey responders draw their sexual inspiration from porn and 48 percent from books.

—Nearly two-thirds of respondents believe that the porn industry is actually helping people have better sex.

—About half of respondents regularly use lubricants, vibrators and other sex toys in bed.

—To incorporate something new sexually, couples report these top three methods: talking about it while in bed, talking about it in a neutral place outside of the bedroom and first asking one's partner what he/she wants.

—Exactly 29 percent of people admit to initiating "dirty talk" through texts and emails while over 60 percent indicate they talk dirty between the sheets. Only 14 percent of respondents claim to never talk dirty.

—Two-thirds of respondents generally stick to the same 2-4 positions in bed while 27 percent rotate through 5-7 positions and occasionally try new ones.

"When people think of great sex, many often conjure up images of one night stands or Spring Break," says Laurent Faracci, chief strategy and marketing officer of Reckitt Benckiser USA. "Our research shows the contrary, that when you are with someone who wants only you, you feel confident enough to try out new things and express your fantasies, which in turn leads to more intimacy and even better sex between partners. At heart, Durex inspires and embarks lovers on a journey to more intimacy, 'sexploration' and better sex."

YourTango CEO Andrea Miller agrees. "We've been conditioned by the media to believe that sex is primarily physical and a couple's sex life will inevitably fizzle with time. However, these findings indicate just the opposite — getting closer on an emotional level is the key to getting closer physically."
