5 Tips For Great Sex Even When You're Busy
How to keep a healthy sex life even when work and life get busy.

4. Spend Non-Sexual Time Together In The Bedroom. After my husband has had his good night's sleep, and before we initiate sex, we spend time together in the bedroom, laughing, talking and flirting. This helps us both relax, reconnect and rebuild our sexual and sensual bond with one another. Don't overlook the importance of connecting with your partner in the bedroom without the expectation of sex.

5. Flirt Outside The Bedroom. Our foreplay typically begins in the kitchen. My husband peruses his favorite cooking magazines, we take a trip to his favorite local markets and, in the evening, we put on some music, don our aprons and cook together. We spend hours prepping, cooking and—finally—eating. By the time we're done, we're relaxed and feeling romantic. Once the food has settled in our stomachs? It's ON! If you or your spouse are not adept in the kitchen, flirt elsewhere. The key is to find ways to connect with one another that feel organic and spontaneous. Bond over reading the Sunday paper on the couch. Spend time together gardening in the back yard. Finding unique ways to connect with your partner outside the bedroom will enhance what happens in the bedroom. 5 Simple Hobbies That Can Help Couples Reconnect

Don't Let Money Put A Tax On Your Relationship

By

Growing up, my parents argued about money constantly. Having been raised by a single mother in extreme poverty, my father worried there was never enough. Having grown up somewhat entitled, my mother believed that as long as there were checks left in the checkbook, she had spending power. And while my family was firmly middle class, many of my childhood memories ... Read more

"The Force Wasn't With Us" — A Star Wars Breakup

By

In 2004, I launched The Breakup Chronicles because I had just had my heart smashed to smithereens for the umpteenth time and needed to figure out why I was getting love so wrong, so consistently. The common denominator was most definitely me. In writing about some of my key relationships, I needed to figure out what I did wrong, how I contributed to the demise ... Read more

Foster Parenting: When Dad Is Doting And Mom Is A Moody Impostor

By

I've always known I married a man who is a far better human being than I. (My own father who loves and adores me actually told me this on my wedding day so you know it’s legit.)
