Having sex with your long-term partner will not feel as exciting as it was in the earlier stages of your relationship. You may feel like the thrill has faded, but there are still good sides to it, too. We surveyed women to bring you some of the benefits people in long-term relationships experience in bed.

“You don’t have to spend so much time planning, in a good way.” When you’re in a long-term relationship you no longer have to waste so much time creating the right mood. Of course, it’s still fun to plan romantic evenings, but you no longer have the pressure. Since you’re so comfortable with each other, you can just let each other know when you’re feeling horny.
