Trista Sutter talks about the The K-Y® Brand Intimacy Experiment, marriage, kids and sex.

Did it help you stay connected intimately as well?

Oh yeah, definitely. I think the intimacy experiment really hones in on the fact that everything that you do outside the bedroom is going to make everything inside the bedroom a positive experience.

One of my favorite tips is that every successful relationship has a ratio of five positive to one negative interaction. Saying "I love you," giving each other a compliment, sending text—all of those positives add up. If you have one negative thing, it can really upset those positive interactions, so you want to make sure you have an overflow of positives.

How do you deal with the days you aren't on the same page physically, so to speak?

When we're off, if one of us is having a bad day, you really have to interject those positive experiences to get back on the same page. I think that you need to know your partner and if they are having a bad day, it's important to give them their space, and that might actually be a positive thing. They don't want to feel like they are being nagged. Not doing anything can be more of a positive than doing something.
