What does having a healthy sex life mean when for married couples? Find out more about the types of sex that are important to maintaining a happy marriage!

What makes a healthy sex life? Is it measured in frequency or level of satisfaction? Is it based on being adventurous and willing to try new things? Whatever your definition of good sex is, there's no denying that there are types of sex that are important to keep intimacy satisfying. Let's take a closer look at five of them.

1. Spontaneous sex

Dad blogger and author Kevin A. Thompson believes that unplanned sex keeps marriage fun and exciting. It's important to express love and desire in spontaneous and unexpected ways, especially for couples who have been married for a long time. Making sex fun again can make the stress of life fall away, allowing you to both satisfy one another and get out of your boring daily routine.

2. Scheduled sex

Just as important is deliberately making time for sex. Scheduling intimacy shows pleasing your partner is a priority in your life. It also helps you manage your busy schedule more efficiently.

Though it's not exactly the most romantic type of sex, it is just as important to building a healthy sex life. Thompson shares that some of the couples he's worked with in marital counselling sessions have happily reported that scheduled sex worked for them and that it didn't have a negative effect on arousal, as they expected.

3. Holiday sex

Vacation or special occasion sex is another type of sex essential to happy and healthy marriages. It helps you be intimate in a less familiar setting and it also allows you to associate the act with unforgettable milestones, elevating intimacy to a level that makes it truly special!

4. Make-up sex

After a fight, making up feels great, and so does the sex that comes with it! All the bottled up emotions and passion can let you experience the most unforgettable sexual experiences with your better half.
