“Sex is not only the basis of life, it is the reason for life.”
No one wants a boring sexual life. This is why every partner has a role to play in making sure any kind of intimacy they are involved in is worth it. Although the definition of sex differs among people depending on their sexuality, you can name it.
According to a study, sexual activity serves as a form of exercise; it also strengthens the basis of intimacy. This means that it provides emotional support to both parties as one of the substances of human existence.
The World Health Organization sees sexual health as “a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.”
However, navigating through sexual challenges becomes easier when partners know the underlining physical and emotional factors binding them. Without a doubt, this is one of the safest ways to maintain the intimacy and purpose of being together.
Benefits of Sex to the Body
- Boosts the Immune System
During sex, antibodies in our body are stimulated, boosted, and produced, strengthening the immune system. Experts sometimes advise engaging in sexual intercourse once or twice a week.
- Burns calories
During sexual intercourse, you tend to engage in different styles, and these styles sometimes are strenuous, may burn approximately 300 calories.
- Reduces stress
During or after sex, hormones are produced in the body as well as endorphins and oxytocin. These two would help you have a settled mind and combat anxieties as well.
- Builds up intimacy
Sex is a very important and strong way of creating or bonding with a partner. Experts reveal that after couples have sex, both individuals tend to depend more on each other, boosting intimacy and trust in each other.
Ways to improve your sexual life
- Maintain a physical bond: At some point, you feel tired, bored, or tense, or having some issues, engaging in emotional or physical bonding helps to ease up one mind. It improves sexual life, which includes kissing, hug, and cuddling.
- Trying different sex positions: Sexual life can also be improved by trying out your sexual fantasies or different sexual positions. This method spices up and creates more love for lovemaking or sexual intercourse. Orgasms are more stimulated in some sexual positions than others, and an example is when the penetration comes from behind in a doggy style. Women tend to reach orgasm faster that way.
- Use of sex toys: Women have difficulties reaching orgasms most of the time, and they may feel unsatisfied with their partner or need to explain how they want it. Toys like vibrators can be used to create satisfaction or explain to a partner how she wants it.
- Sex Education: Reading through different sex materials can help improve one’s sexual life. Resources can be found on the internet, videos, books, PDFs, and audio. Knowledge gained from sex education should be applied and also influence partners on the knowledge gained. Meanwhile, addiction to these things could be a bad idea.
It’s probable seeing partners get shy about their sexual life and how much they enjoy it. As much as shyness doesn’t solve any medical challenge, it’s important to seek timely help. So, when any sexual problem surfaces, one of the best options is to seek a professional medical officer for enlightenment or treatment.
