If you are in a long-term relationship, your sex life is probably a little less exciting than the beginning of your relationship.
But if your sex life is warmer than sparkling, you will be happy to know that there is help, because scientists have revealed the key to having more sex with your partner.
Researchers from the University of Science and Technology in Norway have revealed that when it comes to sexual relations, passion means love.
In the study, the team studied 92 couples in long-term relationships about their sex life.
A series of questions was asked to the participants, including the happiness they had in their relationship, the commitment they felt with their partner, the intimacy they were and the trust between them and the love between them.
An analysis of the results suggests that passion is the key to gender in a long-term relationship.
Dr. Trond Viggo Grøntvedt, the first author of the study, said: "Passion in the relationship is of great importance for the frequency of sexual intercourse.
"Passion is actually the only one of these important factors. We have not found any association between any other aspect and the frequency with which people have sex with each other."
But, although it is good to suggest that couples promote passion in their relationship, this is not always so simple in practice.

To help, Hayley Quinn, Match Match expert, has revealed several ways in which couples can restart the spark if they find themselves in a sex-free relationship.
Speaking of Mirror Online, he said: "People have different books, life takes over and, as your responsibilities increase, it is easy for your sexual relationship to decrease. If you are in this situation, be it for a few weeks, months or even years, it can have a negative impact on your self esteem and well-being.
"It's important to recognize that this is not a reflection of you or your attraction. Sometimes, the couple's books do not coincide, sometimes stress and poor health can be worthwhile.
"The first step to solve this is to depressurize the situation and to leave any circular conversation about" why it has been so long. ""
Instead of focusing on sex, Ms. Quinn suggests that couples prohibit anything other than a kiss.
She explained: "Often, focusing on smaller forms of flirting, it can help you recover this feeling of excitement around sex."
Mrs. Quinn also suggests that spending quality time with your partner can help reactivate the spark.
He added: "Quality time together is another important ingredient to make this happen, as with enough time to recover part of this spark, so do not hesitate to schedule it if it is not happening organically. "
