Attain Intimacy Without Sex
Consider doing something outside the bedroom - whether it's taking a long walk, reading a book together or taking a cooking class. Always maintain eye contact with your partner when you are speaking. One look often says it all. So make it a practice whenever you are with your partner. Reach out and touch someone. A hand on the small of the back, a pat on arm or squeeze of the shoulder -- these are all small gestures that garner big results. Research shows that different forms of touching including caressing and stroking produce the chemical oxytocin, which is responsible for emotional bonds. Repeated touching also causes a build-up of sexual tension between you and your partner, leading to a grand finale that is second to none.
