Remember the beginning of your relationship when everything was fun and exciting?  

You & your honey would spend hours chatting on the phone having deep conversations about nothing, yet you couldn’t hang up.

"You hang up first...no, you hang up first."  

You’d count the days down to the weekend because you’d finally get to see one another.  When the time came, you made sure you looked and smelled delicious because the weekend was sure to include a considerable amount of sexy time (as my colleague & friend Dr. Uchenna Ossai, aka YouSeeLogic, likes to call it .

One of the most common complaints I hear as a couples therapist is about the lack of passion in relationships, especially, long-term relationships.

There is often a great deal of love, respect, and admiration, but the fire has dwindled.

Couples don't just want more sex, they want more passionate sex.

If you were lucky enough to grow up in a sex-positive home your parents facilitated an ongoing conversation about sexual health and wellness.  You were encouraged to ask questions and received loving, supportive, and accurate answers to those questions.
