Putting Zing Back into Relationship

Article excerpt

Q We used to make love at least every other day, then it dropped to once a week and now it seems like we barely do it once a month. We both miss it, but we have lots going on and making time for sex has fallen by the wayside for a multitude of reasons. When we don't have time for sex, how can we still feel close and connected?

Couples can certainly feel bonded, giddy and loved up through other means, not only sex. Yes, sex is a powerful magnet between partners, but if you're strapped for time, energy or have other reasons you can't get enough sexy time together (perhaps one person travels or you work varied hours from one another or have small children or others living with you etc), there are other ways to get your gooey loving exciting thrilling feelings more often. …
