5 Tips for keeping bedroom spark alive, why do so many people report there are things their spouse does that drives them nuts over time – these are just but 2 topics I addressed during my interview on WWL-AM/FM radio with host Tommy Tucker. An abundance and a wonderful mix of marital questions were asked by the host and listeners, of which I provided my usual to-the-point do-able solutions and concrete insights.
- How can a spouse keep the bedroom spark alive?
- Initiate– don’t always leave it to your spouse to initiate (important for each to initiate where one is not the only/always initiator)
- Visual– E.g., what you are wearing, not wearing, shaven or unshaven (visual matters)
- Smell– E.g., creams or no creams (your smell matters)
- Sounds– E.g., do you make noises or not, do you talk or not, are you loud or quiet, is there music in the background or no music (sounds matter)
- New moves– break out new moves as the same moves become monotonous over time
And certainly, as articulated by Tommy; “as long as it is a dance that you both want to do”. Indeed! As a marriage therapist and Psychotherapist I wish to share that for the mental wellness of self, partner, and the couple relationship whole, it is imperative that your sexual choices are comfortable and safe for both participants.
- Why are there so many people who feel their spouse drives them nuts over time, and report they were happier earlier on in their marriage?
