Don't get into a sex rut! Top tips to boost your sex life

Here's how to help put the spark back into your love life

Battle the Sex Rut

Are you stuck in a sex rut?

Interest in sex between long term partners can begin to diminish over time- but don't despair. Here are some great tips to help rekindle the spark.

Talk to each other. Don't harbour resentment. It's far better to discuss ways that you can spice up your love life.

Don't suffocate each other. Give each other space, and allow each other time alone to enjoy things without being attached to each other 24/7. That way you're less likely to get sick of seeing each other.

Stop comparing. Every couple is different. Some have more sex than others. Some have less. To avoid unnecessary pressure, ignore what your friends say.

Show an interest in your partner. And make erotic plans together - even if you don't go through with them. Just touching and caressing can bring back the spark.

Use your imagination. Find new places to have sex, or re-visit old ones. Resuming activities you enjoyed in the past can also help kindle desire.

Experiment a little. Try out new sex toys, positions and games. And don't be afraid to express yourself!

Keep up your personal attractiveness. Personal hygiene, appearance and body language are essential, no matter how long you've been with your partner.
