How can I make sex a priority?

Eva B. Cwynar, MD
Internal Medicine
Some couples put aside a date night once a week, but that doesn't necessarily translate into having sex. So if your sex life isn't quite what you want it to be, you have to plan intimacy. There's an old saying that goes "fail to plan, plan to fail." Ask yourself this question: Is sex a luxury or a necessity? For most couples, it is essential to the health of their relationship. Start setting aside some time each week when you plan sex, and then make sure you carry out your plan. This will help you get back into the swing of sex and make it a pleasurable part of your life's routine.
