There’s a reason why the phrase “you need to get laid,” was coined. Of course, movies and television shows have overused the phrase as a punch line for comedic effect, but the idea behind it is very real.
Having a healthy sex life benefits both you and your partner as a unit and as individuals. Good sex can be a powerful force that increases happiness and improves your mental and physical health, helping you feel more alert and revived.
These are just a few ways you can benefit from a regular orgasm.
It can keep you active
You can’t equally replace your 30-minute gym session with sex, but every little bit counts, right? Exploring different positions can be a bonus workout for the both of you. And it may even act as motivation to stick to your workout routine, so you both can maintain your stamina.
It helps with stress and anxiety
That feeling that comes after the sensation of an orgasm is stress leaving your body. We release so much pent-up tension when we have sex so your body and mind can just dwell in the pleasure. Sometimes when you’re feeling overwhelmed with life, getting intimate may be just what you need to relax and clear your mind.
It can relieve pain
Sometimes a good orgasm is all it takes to get rid of that headache. We release oxytocin every time we orgasm, which acts as a natural pain reliever. So before reaching for the ibuprofen, you might want to see if your partner has the cure for your discomfort.
It increases your connection with your partner
To think that sex is one of the most important aspects of a relationship is not superficial; it’s true. The physical touch and intimacy of sex can help you both stay intuned with one another emotionally and physically. Oxytocin is also considered the bonding hormone that helps increase your connection with one another. That’s why many of us have such a strong urge to cuddle after having sex.
