When you’re in a long-term relationship it’s difficult to keep your sex life as hot and spicy as it was when you were first dating and everything was fresh and new. You end up settling for “pizza” sex too often.
The truth is that sex is important for your physical health. An article in Men’s Journal says that an orgasm a day will prolong your life. One doctor says it can add up to eight years to your life. Can you think of a better reason not to stop what you’re doing and have sex right now?
You’re at work…you have to pick up the kids…you’ve got a headache…you have a list of errands to run…Life always seems to get in the way of your sex life. Sex with your partner isn’t always a priority.

That’s why you need to make time for sex in your relationship, no matter how busy you are with work, children and family. Sex is important, and you need to set boundaries to make sure that you and your partner are making it a priority.
