Sex can be the greatest source of pleasure and happiness in our lives – it can boost our personal sense of well-being and health, and it also fosters precious feelings of intimacy with a partner. A healthy sex life can contribute much to the quality of your relationship and sense of connectedness. It is however important to remember that good sex can only support an already healthy relationship. Sexual problems therefore often tend to be symptoms of other problems within the relationship or individual. The basis of an enhanced and enriched sexual and sensual relationship is intimacy, connectedness and vulnerability. The quality of what happens in bed depends largely on the quality of what happens out of bed.
