If you've ever been in a long-term relationship (we're talking 5, 10, 15 years or more) then we don't need to tell you that the sparks that once flew might get a little dimmer as the years go by. It's not that you don't love and care for your partner, or even that you necessarily find them less attractive than before. It's just that, for some reason, familiarity just seems to slow your sex life a bit. There's nothing wrong with that. And in fact, researchers have been able to create a predictable model of what causes that slowdown — and perhaps more excitingly, what can put some rev back in both of your engines again.
