In honor of Valentines Day tomorrow, we thought we'd help you out a little with some myth-busters about your love life...
Myth #1 YOU BOTH NEED TO BE IN THE MOOD FOR SEX.
It's normal for sex to be a little ho-hum for either partner about 15% of the time. To keep things exciting, make a point of venturing out of your comfort zone with new positions, locations and sexy videos.
Myth #2 THE BEST SEX IS SPONTANEOUS
Experts advise establishing a weekly time for intimacy, meaning anything from cuddling to sex. Choose a time you can both commit to easily without exhaustion or daily responsibilities getting in the way.
Myth #3 YOU MUST HAVE SEX 3 TIMES A WEEK
Most happy couples don't have sex every day or even 2 or 3 times a week. What's important is that you both are satisfied with the frequency.
Myth #4 GOOD SEX IS LONG AND SLOW
Embrace the quickie. Think of it as a sex snack, sure to boost your energy and put you back in the mood. For extra excitement, break out of the bedroom: 5 minute romps are perfect for unusual locations, even if it's just the shower or sofa.
Myth #5 MAKE-UP SEX IS UNHEALTHY FOR A RELATIONSHIP
Make-up sex is normal and generally healthy. Not only can it be madly passionate, it can also sustain intimacy during tough times.
Myth #6 IT'S ALWAYS MEN WHO SHOULD INITIATE SEX
If the man has a low sex drive, gently bring up the subject when you're both relaxed, not after a failed attempt to initiate sex. Together, agree on a set number of times per week or month that feels right. And ladies, when the moment arrives, help him get in the mood.
