7 Surprising Health Benefits Of Sex You Never Knew
7 Surprising Health Benefits of Sex You Never Knew About
1. IT GIVES YOU MORE ENERGY
Good sex gives you a free, safe, and wild energy. You’ll explore different pleasurable ways with your partner.
2. IT RESETS YOUR EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, AND PHYSICAL STATE
There’s a way that orgasms and deep sexual releases, whether it’s a clitoric or internal orgasm, resets your emotional, mental, and physical state unlike anything else we do. There’s nothing else we can engage in that has the same reset capacity as sex.
3. YOU BECOME MORE COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR SEXUALITY
You must have a foundational relationship with yourself sexually first. Sex therapists talk about how important it is to know your own pleasure response. Then you’ll have a sex language to share with others. This could mean touching yourself through masturbation, or learning how to express the way you like to be touched and not being afraid to say those things. Your pleasure matters as much as your partner's.
4. IT IMPACTS HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR BODY
Women who come into a sexual encounter feeling really self-conscious about their bodies are probably not experiencing as much pleasure because they’re so anxious about how they’re perceived. When you’re anxious about whether or not someone thinks your body is beautiful, it takes away your sexual power. You can’t actually get to the peak of your pleasure point if you’re worried that you don’t look good enough. When you become more comfortable with your body, good sex can boost your body confidence to a new level
5. IT EMPOWERS YOU
When you actually know what you want when it comes to sex and are able to express yourself, it makes you such a more powerful woman. You don’t need to wait for whoever you’re with to make you feel powerful and sexy in the bedroom. This ability to be bold builds your confidence in every area of your life. Women who are sexually empowered go after what they want.
6. IT CAN MEND YOUR RELATIONSHIP
So many people will tell you that your sex life has an expiration date and when you live with someone for a long time you’ll lose the passion; that’s a bunch of bullshit. A lot of times we want to jump to talking out our problems, but if we’d just have sex first and then talk about it, the conversation would be way more productive.
7. IT MAKES YOU HAPPIER
[Sex makes you happier.] But not bad sex with someone who doesn’t care about you or with a stranger you’re not comfortable to open up to; that makes you sad. It’s also a cheap excuse to substitute our sex lives with. Sex with someone who actually laughs with you when you’re in bed, isn’t in a rush to get an orgasm, and wants to be playful with you will make you happier. Even if you don’t orgasm, it still makes you happier because you’re truly connected to someone.
