Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask

How often are you having sex?

Probably not enough.

If you’re reading this article, I bet you’re looking to improve your sex life.

You want to find more reasons to be intimate with your partner and reap the health benefits of having daily sex.

You read countless articles speaking about the importance of vibrators, foreplay, and a variety of other essential elements of sex.

However, it’s not enough: you want more.

Each day, you crave being deeply intimate with your partner. You want to experience endless orgasms & mind-blowing penetration.

So today Im going to share several reasons why having daily sex will increase the level of intimacy in your relationship, and (potentially) improve your health.

Ready? Let’s begin.

How To Relieve Stress

“Sex is like snow; you don’t know how many inches you’re going to get or how long it’s going to last.” — Anonymous

You come home from work and lie on the sofa. It’s been a long day. You’re annoyed and continually stressed out from the events of the previous hours. For many people around the globe, this is simply the conclusion to a typical day.

The constant stress of work used to drive me crazy. I was tired, frustrated, and wanted nothing more than to relax on the sofa with a large pizza. But after researching endless rabbit holes on the internet, I found a genuinely incredible fact: Having more sex will significantly reduce your stress levels.

According to a study published by Arizona State University, physical affection or sexual behavior with a partner significantly predicted lower stress, and higher positive mood the following day.

So it’s a great idea to have sex more frequently in the evenings if you’re stressed out after a long day at work.

This Tactic Will Improve Your Level Of Fitness

“I don’t stop when I’m tired. I stop when I’m done.” — David Goggins

If you don’t fancy going to the gym this week, don’t worry about spending countless hours trying to burn off those donuts from last night.

There is another solution.

In an article published by Men’s Health, women burn approximately 69 calories during a typical sex session (25 mins).

So with the average donut from my local store consisting of approximately 400 calories, women would need to have sex for about 2.5 hours to burn off that tasty goodness.

This Is How Sex Can Alleviate Symptoms Of Depression

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” — Marcus Aurelius

There are days where you don’t feel like it. You want to lay in bed, watch Netflix all day, and eat junk food to your heart’s desire.

But despite how depressed you may feel, sex may be a viable way to combat these emotions.

You see, a chemical called dopamine activates the reward center of your brain during sexual intercourse and masturbation. So instead of feeling depressed and lonely, your emotional state is massively uplifted upon reaching orgasm.

What To Do When You’re In Pain

“One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.” — Sophocles

If you want a lifehack for getting rid of headaches, having more sex may be the perfect answer.

A university study published in the Sydney Morning Herald has suggested that “sex triggers the release of oxytocin and endorphins, which decrease our perception of pain, and reduce or eliminate a headache.”

Now take a moment to think about how you can implement more sex into your daily life.

  • When is the best time to be intimate with your partner?
  • Are there any points of the day when you’re always exhausted?
  • Is it feasible to have sex more frequently when either you or your partner is in pain?

From personal experience, I’ve found that the evenings are the best time to have sex.

After an exhausting day, it’s easy to see why the release of sexual tension is a brilliant mood booster before going to sleep.

How To Improve Sleep Quality

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams.” — Dr. Seuss

Have you found that after being intimate, you feel tired and want to cuddle up with your partner?

There’s a scientific reason for this natural behavior.

In a recent study done by a Queensland University, having evening sex (or masturbation) can significantly enhance your quality of sleep. Published in the National Library of Medicine, it says:

“Whilst orgasms with a partner appear to have the most benefit in terms of sleep outcomes, orgasms achieved through self- stimulation can also aid sleep quality and latency.”

If you’re hoping to be more intimate with your partner before bed, this may provide the perfect excuse to have daily sex. After all, I’m sure that they would want you to have a great night’s sleep.

I’m going to leave you with a quote from Woody Allen, who so perfectly describes the importance of having an intimate relationship with your lover:

“Having sex is like bridge. If you don’t have a good partner, you’d better have a good hand.”

I agree.
