How to Improve a Struggling Relationship at the Three-Year Glitch

I was recently interviewed by Nadine Toren at Arizona Foothills Magazine about a new research study which indicates that relationships hit a glitch at the three-year mark. It makes sense this would happen, in terms of the physiologically shift from "passionate" love to "long-term" love. At this point, your partner's previously endearing traits become not only irritating, but potentially overwhelming.

5 Ways to Enjoy Your Summer AND Excite Your Erotic Side

1. Pretend you are a tourist in your own town. Even if you don't live in a tourist hot spot like San Diego, walking around your downtown area, licking an ice cream cone, and people watching can create a powerful bonding afternoon or evening. Add in a little role-playing by making up fake "tourist names."

2. Go to your local Farmer's Market and buy fresh vegetables and fruits. The veggies are nutritious and high in fiber - both important parts of keeping you working smoothly in the sexual realm. And the fruits are sensual and a tasty treat to eat alone or share with a sexy partner.

3. Listen to outdoor live music and make a picnic of the event. Entertain all 5 of your senses at once!

4. Watch a beautiful sunset with your lover and if you live by the Pacific ocean, even better! Use it as a time for calm reflection and deep appreciation.

5. View the night time sky on August 12 for the yearly Perseids Meteor Shower. Make time for some smooching between shooting stars! Visit this astronomy site for more information.
