Secrets to a happy and healthy sex life (1/7)
Stuck in a sex rut? Break free with these tips to get the passion flowing again (and keep it going in the long term)
Improve your sex life
"Sexuality’s not the sort of thing where what worked for you when you were 14 is going to work when you’re 25 or 40," says Sarah Forbes-Robert, a worker-owner at Toronto co-operative sex shop Come As You Are. "It's a constant exploration of new ideas."
So if you feel like you're stuck in a rut when it comes to your sex life, you're not alone – or unusual. After all, with the pressures of a busy work and home life, who has time to research sex positions?
But if you're not putting effort in – and that goes for both of you – then you're doing yourself and your relationship a disservice, says Forbes-Robert. "You don’t want to keep doing the same thing over and over again – it’s not good for anybody," she says. "Trying new things – and using new muscle groups – are all very healthy for sexuality."
