Reclaim your sexual power by finding new ways to move and get comfortable in your body. Experts say dopamine and other chemicals in the brain are directly linked to physical attraction and romantic passion, which is why bonding over a new activity together could help spark arousal. A online research survey on 1, men and women ages showed that men and women have wildly different sexual expectations. These expectations are unlikely to change overnight, so couples must communicate their likes and dislikes in bed in order to have a mutually pleasurable experience.

Chores, kids, finances, and other issues can put a damper on romance.
