Why you should have sex more often

There is no set amount of sex a couple should be having. While research indicates that having sex once a week is associated with greater relationship satisfaction, there is no research that indicates that having sex more often increases relationship satisfaction.

Having sex more often can have a number of potential benefits, both physical and emotional. Here are a few reasons why you might consider having sex more often:1. Improved physical health: Regular sexual activity can help to improve cardiovascular health, boost the immune system, and reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. This extremely intimate act not only gives you and your partner intense pleasure but also help you sleep well, relieve stress and release happy endorphins within the body. And not to forget, burns a ton of calories! 2. Reduced stress and anxiety: Sexual activity releases endorphins and other chemicals in the brain that can help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Regular lovemaking increases the level of the immune-boosting antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA), which in turn makes your body stronger against illnesses like the common cold and fever.3. Improved mood: Sexual activity can also help to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression. Sex more often has been known to boost general levels of happiness and emotional well-being.4. Increased intimacy and connection: Regular sexual activity can help to strengthen emotional bonds and increase intimacy between partners. Sex is not merely about physical intimacy. It helps to strengthen the emotional bond between the two partners. For any relationship to be successful, it’s important that the people involved are emotionally on the same page and having sex is a great way to build that emotional intimacy.5. Improved self-esteem: Sexual activity can help to boost self-esteem and improve body image.According to a research, people who had sex in the morning coped better with their daily stress better and even sailed through the day in a good mood. Thanks to all the happy hormones produced after a session of sex, couples are armed with a smile to all the challenges that life throws at them daily. It’s important to note that these benefits are not guaranteed and can vary from person to person. Additionally, having sex more often is not always feasible or desirable for everyone. Ultimately, the decision to have sex more often should be based on personal preferences, comfort levels, and individual circumstances.
