Couples often become complacent in their relationship or get too caught up with other things and forget the importance of a healthy sex life. What often happens after the “honeymoon stage” is we get caught up in our day to day lives and forget how important and how much better we feel when we take the time to show our partner how loved and appreciated they are. We also forget how good it feels to be loved. Sex releases oxytocin, the “cuddle hormone” which makes you feel loved and increases your bond with your partner. Here are a couple of the many physical and emotional benefits of having sex with your partner more often.
It Improves Your Relationship
- Sexually satisfied partners feel more fulfilled in their relationships. They seem to communicate better and argue less often. Feeling loved and showing love makes you feel closer to each other and creates a connection and bond that cannot easily be broken. It makes you feel desirable and wanted and let’s your partner know you feel the same about them. It makes the problems of the day seem less significant and makes you realize together you are stronger than apart and no matter what you are not alone. You will always have the love and support of each other.
Sex Reduces Stress and Anxiety and Increases Self Esteem
- Studies have shown that having sex with your partner reduces your stress level and puts you in a better mood. Sex releases endorphins which release an overall positive sensation. This makes you feel calm and secure and overall happier in every area of your life. In addition to endorphins, sex releases corticosteroids, both of which are natural pain-relievers and will get rid of your aches and pains better than any aspirin. You will look younger and have a wonderful glow about you. You will sleep better and feel better when you wake up the next morning. Most importantly it will improve your relationship and even if you think you are “not in the mood” you will be surprised how much better you feel afterwards.
Being generous with your partner in your sex life will improve your relationship and your sex drive at the same time. Being intimate with your partner more often will make you closer to your partner in every way. Sex should never be held back from your partner as punishment or be used as a reward for good behaviour. It should be a mutual way to show each other how much you are loved and desired.
