Get yourself out of an inadvertent sex rut with the help of these pointers...
#1 STOP... Always having sex in the same place
The bedroom might be your favourite tried-and-tested location but spice things up by doing it somewhere new. The dining room table, the sofas in the living room, the kitchen counter... Explore your home!
Your challenge: the next time you and your partner are getting it on, move things to a different area of the house.

#2 STOP... Putting pressure on one another
If one of you really isn't in the mood, don't try and force it or create a bad vibe by sulking.
Your challenge: if you want sex and your partner really doesn't, there are plenty of other things you can do together that are just as intimate. Snuggle up on the sofa, give each other massages or just - gasp - have an early night and get some spooning practice!

#3 STOP... Doing it the same way. Every. Single. Time.
If your love-making is so formulaic it practically comes with its own timetable, it might be time to spice things up! Whether it's with a new position, a new location or simply switching up your normal foreplay, keep things exciting by trying something new, again, and again, and again...
Your challenge: try a new position, ASAP.

#4 STOP... Not communicating
About what you like, what you don't like... Open and honest communication is essential to a happy love life, so make sure you and your bae are upfront about all the things to do with your relationship.
Your challenge: try the honesty sandwich, layering good news on top of bad news on top of good news. For example: "I loved that thing you just tried with your tongue! I wonder if next time you could try doing [insert action/move] as well? That thing you just did to my feet felt great as well!"
