Do You Know Good Sex Relieves Stress?


A healthy sex life and strong relationships contribute to your physical and mental health in many ways, from keeping you fit and youthful to helping you live a longer, happier life.
As a married couples sex definitely does not have to get boring in a long-term marriage. As the years go by, your sex life should get better. You both know each other so well by now. What makes each other feel good, likes, dislikes, habits and so on.

But, we do know that life can get in the way. Chores, kids, finances and so on can put a damper on the romance. These everyday things can interfere with both our desire and finding the time to put into our sex life. You do not want to put sex last on the list. Some of you may need some help figuring out how to both prioritize sex and keep it exciting.

Sexual pleasure and tender physical contact with the man you married is a tremendous stress reliever. When you and your husband make love, all kinds of amazing things happen in your body, like the release of endorphins and oxytocin (often referred to as the “feel good” hormone).
Sex relieves stress and depression. Sexual activity relaxes the nervous, respiratory, and circulatory systems, according to a study conducted by Roy J. Levin of the University of Sheffield in Sheffield, England. Levin reports that hormones in semen contain substances that have been found to relax a woman, which is one reason we often feel in a better mood after a man ejaculates inside the vagina.

Another study found that participants who had had intercourse were better able to handle stress in many situations (including public speaking and doing verbal arithmetic) than those who had not had intercourse. And we know that sex releases brain endorphins, which automatically lifts your mood and helps relieve stress.

What Your Marriage Needs to Have a Healthy Sex Life

•Productive and meaningful communication
•Love for each other
•Physical attraction
•Willingness to make time for each other
•Date nights, fun and playfulness
•Acceptance of each other's flaws and quirks

Lovemaking releases endorphins and hormones that naturally help us sleep better and give us a better outlook on life. Often, the best thing you can do after a stressful day is have good sex with your married partner.
With all the stress in your life, why not find a few creative ways to start lowering it tonight?
