Step 9: You can make small changes to improve your sex life.
Kids’ toys, paperwork, and clothes are strewn on the floor if you live together.Change your bedroom into an intimate environment by getting some candles, buying new sheets, and doing anything else you can.Take the electronics out of the bedroom if you fall asleep to TV.Agree to disengage from technology in the bedroom to create a sense of intimacy.
