At the beginning of a relationship, couples often enjoy deep kissing an act that often subsides over time. Continuing to hug, kiss, and snuggle is an important component of a healthy relationship, and will increase the likelihood of remaining sexually active with your long-term partner.

You should do more than moan and groan when it comes to your partner's bedroom moves. Be sure to communicate what it is you like and what feels good and pleasurable, as well as talk about your fantasies. Taking that risk and being vulnerable can lead to increased closeness and excitement.
Not only will this kind of sexy talk up your intimacy, but telling your partner your needs and desires can be helpful in avoiding a building resentment that can come from keeping those feelings inside.
