We've all been there some time or other: you and your partner have been together for several years and things in the hay have begun to take the backseat to more "important" things like work, hobbies, hanging out with friends, cleaning the house, etc. Maybe the relationship itself is great, with long conversations, cuddles and whatever floats your boats, but sex is something you save for Saturdays and New Year's Eve.
