Spending more time watching telly with your wife than cuddling in bed? Six ways to spice up your love life

IT'S A DATE!

Sad but true; time can take the fire out of a relationship. Rekindle your romance by stepping out for an old-fashioned date. It doesn't have to be too fancy - maybe the movies or just a quiet candlelight dinner.

DOGGONE IT

Face it, letting your kids or dog crawl into your bed isn't a great idea. The presence of a child, you may agree, is quite a deterrent to lovemaking. As for dogs, you don't want them jumping in just when things are getting somewhere - do you?

DE-STRESS YOURSELF

Stress has a more telling effect on your sex life than you may realize. While tense, your body produces more cortisol, which can be quite bad for your libido. De-stress yourself with yoga or a long bath before hitting the bed.

FOODS THAT HELP

Studies show that certain nutrients can enhance sexual function and desire. Avocados, almonds, strawberries and oysters are just a few foods that may put you in the mood. Need more? Figs, oranges, sea food, the list goes on.

LOOK WITHIN

A slow sex drive may be a sign of bottled-up resentment over lots of minor issues. Did your wife bring up bedroom secrets in front of friends again? Don't try to shrug it off; talk to her about it.

UP IN SMOKE

Do away with certain habits that you were better off without anyway. For instance, smoking diminishes a man's sexual desire and satisfaction and, believe it, alcohol isn't so beneficial either.
