Let us start off with a sincere, positive and enthusiastic attitude. For your marriage to be fun-filled, beautiful and blissful, love making, is one key ingredient that must be explored on a constant basis, among several others. Sex is beautiful, Sex is powerful, Sex was ordained by God. Sex, most of the time, is never said to be too much in marriage, rather too little. Having sex regularly with your spouse can do more than make you feel closer to each other, it can actually make you physically healthier.
Why Your Marriage Needs Sex
Sex is an Immune Booster
Sex helps to boost numerous aspects of both your physical and mental health. Increasing your sexual activity with your wife is a sure way to better health. It could be that people who feel healthier have more sex, but there seems to be a link between sexual activity and your sense of wellbeing.
And it’s not just sex, it’s love too. People who were in a close relationship or married were more likely to say they felt “very good” or “excellent” health than just “good” or “poor”. It seems that emotional and social support can boost our sense of wellbeing.
Regular Sex Will Improve Your Libido
The more often you have sex, the more likely you are to keep having it. Believe it or not, the best antidote for a waning libido is to have sex! Regular sex actually boosts desire. And if pain and vaginal dryness make it challenging for you to have sex, especially if you have not had sex for a very long time, maybe your spouse is not based in the same location with you (which can be addressed by more regular visits) or you just got married, both of you must try everything possible to bridge these gaps. Sexual activities can help combat vaginal dryness, as it will boost your vaginal lubrication, blood flow and elasticity, thereby making sex more enjoyable.
Sex Is Good For Bladder Control In Women
Good sex is like a workout for your pelvic floor muscles; the muscles that control orgasms and also stem the flow of urine, reducing leakage and incontinence. Pregnancy and menopause can weaken these muscles significantly. But when you have an orgasm, it causes contractions in those muscles, thereby strengthening them.
Lowers Blood Pressure And Prevent Heart Attack
A good sex life is good for your heart. Besides being a great way to raise your heart rate, sex helps keep your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance. Several studies have found that your risk of dying from a heart disease event, such as stroke or heart attack is significantly lowered as the frequency of your good orgasms increase over time. And for those that worry that the exertion involved in sex is a threat to the heart, findings have shown that the most sexually intense moments, especially if you are not usually vigorous in your other activities, place the same demand on your heart as walking 4 to 6 miles an hour. Of course, it helps your heart and your overall sex life to stay in shape.
Some studies show that men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who had sex rarely.
May Make Prostate Cancer Less Likely
Men who ejaculated frequently were less likely to get prostate cancer, some studies have shown. This is because sex clears the prostate of toxins that could otherwise linger and trigger cancerous changes.
Try an orgasm before you try that pain killer. Orgasm can block pain. It releases a hormone that helps block your pain doorway. We’ve found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain, and many women have told us that genital stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headache.
It Can Boost Self-Esteem And Happiness In Marriage
Sex triggers your body to release its natural feel-good chemicals -endorphins and oxytocin which are released during sex, and these feel-good hormones activate pleasure centers in the brain that create feelings of intimacy and relaxation and help stave off anxiety and depression. Research also shows that those who have sexual intercourse responded better when subjected to stressful situations like speaking in public.
Sex Can Serve As A Stress Buster
People who had only penetrative sex had the smallest rise in blood pressure. This shows that they coped better with stress. In part, it’s the oxygenation of blood and the focusing of the mind away from negative stressors,” explains Britton. “Sex has that magical quality of bringing you into the moment, especially at orgasm.
The same endorphins that help you de-stress can also relax your mind and body, priming you for sound sleep. However, women complain that when their husbands turn their back and sleep off after lovemaking, they feel used and dumped. To the men: let’s try as much as possible to express our love to our wives after every love making. This could be done verbally, by using romantic words or nonverbally by rubbing her body gently, patting her on the back, holding her hand lovingly till you both sleep off. Sometimes you can even help her locate her negligee and assist her to dress up if she must, since you must have thrown them away in the course of action.
A Scottish study showed that people who have sex every other day look dramatically younger (up to seven to 12 years!) than their compatriots. That glow can be attributed to a combination of stress relief, better mood, and the flush of blood under your skin that’s a natural part of the arousal process. Regular sex promotes the release of hormones, including testosterone and estrogen, which can keep the body looking young and healthy. Estrogen has also been shown to promote soft skin and shiny hair. Ladies, if aging fast is becoming a growing concern, then you need more sex with your husband, your body will thank you for it.
