One major sign of roommate syndrome is a decrease in passion, so Suwinyattichaiporn highly encourages ongoing sexploration, trying new things in the bedroom, and having open conversations about your sex life.
“It’s easy for couples who start living together to kind of fall off the passion train and start having ‘routine sex,’ and it becomes boring,” Suwinyattichaiporn explains. “And exploration shouldn’t just be about different positions—trying different positions can be fun, and I encourage that, but I think it’s more about opening your mind to completely different sexual activities,” she adds.
You may also find sexual meditation to be a powerful tool to help you both tap into your sensuality. “Sexual meditation is like regular meditation, except it focuses on sexual thoughts, feelings, and sensations,” Suwinyattichaiporn says, noting that it can help you feel present, turned on, and grateful for your partner all at once.
