S.E.X not only feels good. It is also good for you, an indispensable thing for a strong relationship. Sexual Desire in Long Term Relationships :
S.e.x makes you happier
There’s actually a physiological reason why an orgasm makes you blissful. That’s because your body is flooded with oxytocin – a stress-reducing hormone – a few minutes after you climax. This makes you feel relaxed, happy, and closer to your partner. More s.e.x means more happiness and love.
S.e.x helps you to relieve
In this busy life, Stress is the result of many interacting psychological factors and can affect different people in different ways. There is evidence to suggest that being close to your partner (physically and emotionally) can relieve stress. Physical intimacy can trigger the release of chemicals in the brain including dopamine(which plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior, focuses attention), endorphins (natural pain and stress fighters); and oxytocin(known as “the cuddle hormone” which can trigger feelings of compassion).
One study actually found that having s.e.x every day for two weeks led to cell growth in the hippocampus (which plays a role in regulating stress levels).
It makes you look younger
According to a study, older people who were enjoying lots of s.e.x with a steady partner—four times a week, on average—were perceived to be seven to 12 years younger than their actual age. Researchers looked at participants through one-way mirrors and guessed their ages; they found that the hormones released during regular s.e.x, like testosterone and estrogen, keep the body looking young. For us ladies, estrogen has also been shown to give us soft skin and shiny hair.
Looking younger brings us happiness. When we look younger, we tend to feel younger. And having more s.e.x has also been linked with living longer in general.
It prevents heart attack
Lots of studies have found that regular s.e.x can reduce heart attacks, not bring them on as it was once feared.
One study at Queen’s University Belfast found that having s.e.x three times a week could halve your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Another study in Israel found that women who had twoorgasms a week were up to 30% less likely to have heart disease than those who did not enjoy s.e.x or didn’t have an orgasm.
Lack of s.e.x can lead to feelings of angst, self-doubt, and inadequacy. There is strong evidence that feelings of self-worth and identity are strongly associated with s.e.x.
Nowadays, there is a lot of social pressure to be s.e.x.ually active, while having a minimal or non-existent s.e.x life is socially stigmatized. Looked at from this perspective, having s.e.x by itself can somewhat help people to relax from strong social pressure and enhance self-esteem.
Strengthen your bone
As regular s.e.x can boost oestrogen levels in post-menopausal women, it can offer some protection against the bone-thinning condition osteoporosis which is triggered by lacking oestrogen.
And it is beneficial to men too, as testosterone levels have been found to increase during and after s.e.x, which can provide some protection against male osteoporosis.
Strengthen your relationship
It is undeniable that s.e.x is indispensable part, a catalyst for long-lasting àn strong relationship. Love is fulfillment with emotional intimacy. Your partner is attractive with only you, and so do you.
Enjoying a healthy s.e.x life is one of the great joys in life. Knowing intimacy could be a boon for your long-term health as well make it that much more pleasurable.
