Have you ever worried about your relationship and wondered if it’s heading toward a dead bedroom? My partner obsesses over the r/deadbedrooms subreddit. Hundreds of stories from couples about their lack of intimacy and sex. I’m not a therapist or sexpert…just your average peri-menopausal heterosexual woman. I have, however, had enough relationships to experience the pain of diminished libido, passionless sex, and a dead bedroom. Two decades later, I’m more knowledgeable about sustaining sexual excitement in a healthy relationship. So, follow my tips, get out the paddles and resuscitate your dead bedroom.
Game nights bring friends together through rousing competition and raucous laughter. That principle is easily applied in the bedroom as well.

To enact a fantasy like a ménage à trois, you’ll need a Unicorn, who’s willing to share the bed with you. These mythical creatures appear to fulfill a couple’s erotic fantasy. Then poof! They disappear, never to be seen or heard from again—unless you are ready for round two.
