Better Living Through Sex

Anytime is a beautiful time to reflect on what we’re doing to keep ourselves healthy, aware, and alive to all the sensual elements that are here for us to experience. Now is the perfect time to offer a reminder of some things we can do to keep ourselves active and ready for anything that comes our way. 

A healthy sex life offers more than just heightened intimacy and pleasure. We are sensual beings and every aspect of our lives is connected to each other. It’s no secret, sex feels good. We’ve all(well maybe most) have engaged in sexual activity with another. The touch, feel, and stimulation we receive from another brings more happiness to our lives than you think. It also offers huge benefits for both mind and body. Here are just a few: 

1. Sex is great for the heart 

Sex has great health benefits for the heart and circulatory system. It can lower blood pressure, strengthen the heart, and may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. When we orgasm we release happy chemicals that help our overall well-being. 

2. A healthy sex life boosts the immune system 

Regular sex can raise your levels of antibodies and improve your general resistance to illness. Aren’t our bodies amazing It’s amazing the things our body can do if we give it what it needs! Regular sex also improves sleep and lowers stress and anxiety. 

3. Sex lowers stress levels 

I know this was addressed in the last point, but it’s worth mentioning again. Stress causes great confusion in the mind and body. So would it surprise you that stress kills people daily? Stress attacks our bodies in more ways than you can imagine. 

High blood pressure is the main cause of heart disease. It lowers our energy levels, makes sleep difficult, and can cause headaches and migraines. Regular sex is one of the best ways to counter this and balance your body and mind in a healthy way. 

While some doctors say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, some say an orgasm a day keeps the stress away. 

4. Sex increases libido 

Having regular sex increases a person’s sexual desire. It’s kind of like when you keep on doing something you enjoy, you reach new heights. For women, sex lubricates the vagina and increases both elasticity and blood flow. For both men and women, a healthy sex life can help reach new sexual heights and intense orgasms. 

5. Healthy sex life = Better mental and emotional health 

Some of the most obvious benefits are increased confidence and happiness. Regular sex with a partner that matches your level of sensuality, is also the key to intimacy, trust, and love in your relationship. But the benefits go much deeper than that. Staying sexually active in your later years can increase memory and mental acuity. Plus, it ups our emotional intelligence, increasing our 

capacity to perceive, identify, and express our emotions. Don’t have a partner? No problem! Sex toys help both men and women achieve orgasms.

These are just a few of the benefits of having a healthy sex life. Orgasms are the key to having less stress, better mental and physical health, and being more productive. We all tend to go through some type of stress, but sex can help promote better living for us all.
