I can think of no better way to start the day than waking up a bit early, rolling over into my current partner’s arms, kissing him, climbing on top of him and having an amazing orgasm! That doesn’t always work with our busy lives and schedules, but when it does you both feel amazing and I know I feel like I can take on the world! Sex does have the benefit of boosting our moods for sure, but there are a bunch of other health benefits as well. Here are a few of my favorites:
But the most important benefit of sex for me is that it was and is emotionally healing. After I got divorced, it was my first impulse. I sought sex without understanding the meaning and it was amazing for me. It felt good. It was validating. It was powerful. Sex is one of the most primal ways humans can express and heal ourselves. It resets our systems in a way that nothing else can.
Along with bringing you tons of pleasure, sex does actually have plenty of health benefits (and plenty more that I have not even mentioned!) Go forth. Have lots of sex. Enjoy!!
