It's a truth universally acknowledged that it can be difficult to keep the passion alive in a relationship, year after year. However, others argue that the longer you spend with one partner, the better your sex life gets.
Do you think sex gets better the longer you're together? Or does your sex life dwindle with time?
One way to keep your sex life healthy over the years is to pay close attention to your Kegel muscles.
That's why this week we're giving you the chance to win a Lelo Luna Kegel Exercisers (left, £46.99)!
Simply leave a comment below to be automatically entered into the contest. The winner will be chosen on Friday the 22nd at 5pm. Best of luck!
Below I've rounded up the best articles on long term love and sex for you to enjoy.

We all know how the story goes. You buy something. You wait in furious anticipation for it to arrive (albeit, not very long with our speedy free delivery!) When it arrives, you rip open the parcel, and 99.9999% of the time you jump around the room and do a happy dance!
However, on the very rarest of occasions, you may find that the item in question does not fit, isn't working, is eye-wateringly big, or just isn't your cup of tea.
So, what do you do? Returning something you bought online is always more hassle than it's worth, right? Wrong!
At Lovehoney, we're happy if you're happy - and if you're not, we're not. We understand that there will be the odd occasion when something has not lived up to your expectations, for one reason or another.
So if you find yourself unhappy with your purchase, never fear… Lovehoney's super duper, 365 day returns policy means you can get a replacement or refund!
Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, the sex toy aficionados at We-Vibe have brought out a brand spanking new version of their classic couples vibrator.
Worn inside the vagina during sex, the We-Vibe is a genius design which delivers vibrations to the G-spot and clitoris as well as his penis for an all-round amazing blended orgasm experience.
If you have seen (or own) the We-Vibe 2 or 3, you'll notice that as well as being 30% less bulky, the We-Vibe 4 has a flatter internal arm with a built-in ridge to rest against the pelvic bone (and G-spot), reducing the amount of movement during play.
It's smaller, smoother to the touch and easier to control, making it a great toy for both public and private play. It's also USB rechargeable!
If you've never tried a couples vibrator, now is the time. Plus, with Lovehoney's great 1 year no-quibbles returns policy, what have you got to lose?
When daily office activity includes people in suits having serious discussions about anal beads, and teams avidly planning the next shipment of nipple clamps, working at Lovehoney can sometimes be quite surreal.
But for me, no day here has been more surreal than my very first… and it all started with a tweet.
I'd spent the morning discussing dildos in the boardroom and thought it couldn't get much better, but that was before my new manager rather cryptically announced: “He’s here! And he’s asking to see you, Stephanie.”
Perhaps this is a good time to mention that a week earlier my favourite comedian, Ross Noble, had tweeted about an unconventional travel documentary he was filming, saying:
"Still looking for stuff to do in Wales or maybe the West Country if you have a cool job or something odd you would like to show the world!"
I hadn't even started yet, but what cooler job is there than working at Lovehoney?
Is there anything hotter than sexy lingerie that can double as revealing clubwear?
When it comes to underwear that can pass for outerwear, you can't go wrong with Lapdance. This lingerie brand produces everything from sexy short dresses to barely-there bodystockings.
With strategic cut-out detailing in all the right places, Lapdance lingerie is designed to flaunt your curves.
Available in a range of colours with both regular and plus sizes catered for, there's truly something for everyone.
See something you fancy? You're in luck: we're currently offering 20% off when you spend £35 on selected clothing & clubwear, which includes lots of lovely picks from Lapdance.

If you're looking for a vibrator that you can both enjoy, a We-Vibe could be the perfect sex toy for you. Worn during sex, this unique vibrator stimulates her G-spot and clitoris, while providing pleasureable vibrations for him.
There are two versions of this vibrator available on Lovehoney: the We-Vibe 3 and the We-Vibe 4. The differences between these toys are small but still significant. This guide will help you figure out which one is best for you.
With the weather getting colder and colder every day, it can seem like lots of effort to strip down for sex.
When it comes to sex toys that can raise the temperature in winter but cool you down during the summer, there's nothing like a glass dildo to keep you satisfied year round.
Glass sex toys are perfect to temperature play - just place them in some cool or warm water, depending on your preference.
This week, we're giving you the chance to win a Lovehoney Ribbed Sensual Glass Dildo (left, £24.99)! To enter the contest, just leave a comment below before 5pm on Friday the 15th.
Read on below for the best winter sex tips and talks from around the web…

They say geek is chic, and if the new Star Wars vibrator posters currently circulating the web are anything to go by, they're definitely right!
The posters show a number of vibrators from luxury brand Lelo that have received a rather dashing makeover - to resemble characters from the movie francise Star Wars.
Unfortunately, this isn't a real range - the fake posters were created by Tumblr user Balazs Sarmai.
Sarmai found fame a few months with his Avengers-inspired sex toy posters (we blogged about them here), which featured products like Lelo Elise 2, the Stronic Eins from Fun Factory and the Lovers Premium Rabbit Vibe.
This time, however, he's chosen to transformed some of our favourite Lelo vibrators into Star Wars sex toys with the use of clever photo editing - including the Gigi 2 Luxury G-Spot Vibrator (£119.99), Alia Luxury Waterproof Massager (£109.99), Ida Rechargeable Remote Control Massager (£146.99) and, of course, the famous Lelo Smart Wand Vibrator (£119.99).
Read on to see the rest of the posters, and make sure to tell us which is your favourite in the comments.

What a month for user-uploaded reviews! With lots of fun new products appearing in October, and a great back catalogue of customer favourites being reviewed, it was tricky to pick just one winner of our Review of the Month competition.
In the end, we chose Cornish89's sincere review of the brand new Sqweel Go USB Rechargeable Oral Sex Simulator (£39.99) as winner, and we're delighted to award her £100 to spend at Lovehoney.
We loved her change from sceptic to full-blown convert:
"I applied lube to myself and started off on the slowest speed which was a nice warm up. I then sped it up, I was surprised to feel close to orgasm on the second setting and pretty shocked to have an orgasm when I put it on the fastest speed! The Sqweel Go has definitely been added to my very short list of items that I can use solo and know I'll achieve orgasm!"
