  • Has married sex hit a lull that you find yourself craving for steamy nights in the bedroom? According to a sex therapist, it’s common for sex to slow down in long-term relationships, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that something is wrong.

    Declines in sex can happen when we get too comfortable and we fall into habits,” explains sex therapist and author Dr. Chris Donaghue in an interview with Fatherly. “Sexual arousal is brought forth by newness, novelty, and diversity. In sex, especially in long-term relationships, we tend to just stick to the same path, the same pattern, the same thing.”

    He adds, “The way around that is to always fold in something new and novel. You have to change up when you’re doing it and how you’re doing it. You have to keep it fresh.”
