Every couple goes through phases in their sex life, but when your bow-chicka-wow-wow is more bow-chicka than wow-wow, it's time to take a look at how to get your groove back. Having sex that makes your eyes roll into the back of your head isn't just for newbie couples who can't keep their hands off each other. Even twosomes who've been together for decades can keep it hot. There are many ways long term couples can spice up their sex life by tonight, and experience an afternoon delight that's so steamy, paint will start to peel off the walls.

If you've been together with your SO longer than you've owned your favorite pair of jeans, than chances are your ticket to the bedroom rodeo has been punched so many times, it looks pretty tattered. When it comes to sex, the biggest obstacle long term couples face is falling in to a routine. I mean, routines are great for keeping things orderly, but in your sex life, routines can make things, well, boring.

Breaking the routine and trying new things keep you and your partner excited, and that excitement will inspire more you to take more risks and be more adventurous when getting busy. Add a little something-something to your next date night with one of these nine ideas long term couples can use to keep sex fun.

5Make Out In Public

6Have A Quicky


Sometimes a quick hit-n-run can be sexier than all the lead up and foreplay. Redbook magazine suggests trying impromptu quickie sex before work or when leaving for a night out. Either way, you'll both have a smile on your face until bed time.
