Sex is one thing that makes your relationship with your partner or spouse different from any other relationship (at least – it should be!).

It’s enjoyable, pleasurable, satisfying, and is a key way of keeping you connected to each other.

However when you’ve been together for a while, sex, like everything else, can get into a bit of a rut.

Maybe you only do it on certain days of the week, in certain positions and in certain places.

In addition, you think because you know each other so well you know exactly what they like and dislike, but that’s not necessarily the case.

Well, mixing things up can lend a whole new lease of life to what goes on between the sheets.

These sex questions for couples are designed to get you both thinking about what turns you on and what to avoid, what you’d like to try, and how you can make your sex life even hotter.

And a quick warning – don’t go reading these at work, okay? While these questions are still broadly vanilla, they’re definitely not something you’d want your boss reading over your shoulder.

(But you might like to send some of these dirty questions by text, just to get him warmed up for later. That’s always fun. And by HIM I mean your partner, NOT your boss!).

I have been married for 21 years and I am 44 years old. When we got married he was so kind to me. After making love, he loved me more and would be so kind days after. But during the past 5years we make love and almost immediately after the love making ecstasy, if anything goes wrong or I say something, my husband can shout at me, argue with me and sometimes the evening ends with sadness for me. I feel so emotional about it because it seems the love making and foreplay didn't mean anything to him. I feel he doesn't love me anymore.

Hey Adline, I wanted to say that this sounds really tough for you. You have a long history with your husband - basically half your life! and you obviously love him a lot. However how he is acting after you have been together is hurting you. Have you talked to him about this?

Hi, I m married for 20 years and never felt to ask this question. The question is my wife doesn't like sperm on her body, and touching it, even on the sheets.She just want to runs away / stay away from the sperm during /after sex. I feel my sex life is not complete, without her feeling the sperm. please help, what can I do.

Hey Mike, if this problem has persisted for 20 years, with neither you nor your wife changing your feelings about it, you might want to consider getting some guidance from a professional, eg a sex therapist. Unfortunately, I'm not qualified to help you with this. Best of luck as I'm hearing how much it bothers you.

Hi Denish, it is very possible that your wife is finding it hard to be interested in sex after having a baby. During the first six weeks in particular she is still healing and after that, there are still many things to contend with, including lack of sleep. Don't give up on your sex life though. Try talking to your doctor about this or check out this article:

maybe the questions are a bit to direct, and deterministic? My partner and I both agree that we are not a cookbook, add some standard ingredients and you have yourself a sex life. Honesty would be to admit that sex will always be more giving, than receiving. When that is no longer good enough, then maybe friendship or even separation is the way forward?

Thanks for your perspective, Tel. Some people find having a list of questions they haven't had to come up with themselves get good conversation and intimacy happening. It takes all kinds.

What to do if partner just don't want to answer to questions like that? He awoids the topic or make fun of it....

Hi GG I'm so sorry you feel like you can't talk about sex with your partner. This may be something you want to seek further advice and support with.
