Keeping the romance and happiness alive in sexual partnerships has been a challenge for many couples during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown period. While we saw outbursts of creativity in the early days, it now emerges people are struggling with seeing their partner day in and day out.

We thought this was a simple but very effective way to relieve an important conversation from becoming an ego punishing exercise.
