Why You Need to Have More Sex

by | Sensual Intimacy

Jul 28, 2023

You may be wondering what the rave about sex is. I have been there and know a lot of people who have been as well. In this article, I will be showing you why you may need to have more sex.

1. So Your Sexual Prowess Improves

Nobody likes terrible sex. Imagine waiting all week to have sex, and when you finally do, the sex is crappy, leaving you dissatisfied and wishing you never wasted your time. 

Like everything else which you do, sexual practice makes perfect. You may read articles and books on how to have sex properly, but something’s are better practiced than read. 

The more you have sex, the better you get at it. Better sex equates to more orgasms and even better, more intense orgasms. And this would leave both you and your partner happier. 

2. Sex has Been Known to Reduce Stress

Adrenaline and cortisol are hormones induced by stress. 

Regular sex has been found to reduce the production of these hormones. While reducing the production of these two, endorphins and Oxytocin would be produced. Making you feel good.

With reduced stress levels, you would find it much easier to sleep and sleep well. It is very likely that your insomnia is caused by stress. Very often, people have been found to just turn over and go straight to sleep after a good round of sex. And there is a scientific explanation for this. 

A certain hormone called Prolactin which is released after orgasm also has the ability to make you relaxed.

3. There is no Easier Way to Get Pregnant

If this option is not for you, feel free to skip it. 

Regular sex is the easiest way to get pregnant. Couples who have the most sex are more successful with getting pregnancies than couples who do not. 

If you are not so much of someone who understands how ovulation works or you simply do not have the time and energy to follow your fertile days, having regular stress can save you trouble. For people who are not yet ready for a baby, it is advised you either use protection or a contraceptive. 

4. It Makes You Closer to Your Partner

Oxytocin is also called the love hormone, and there are very valid reasons why it is addressed as this. 

Remember we said the hormone oxytocin is released when you have sex? Oxytocin has tendencies to increase the creation of emotional bonds. This is why breastfeeding mothers share an unbreakable bond with their babies. 

I’m sure you admire the bond mothers seem to share with their babies. If you want to have something like that, have sex more often with the same person.

5. If You Are a Biological Woman, this one is for you

For some unclear reason, sex improves the heart health of women. 

Women who have sex a minimum of twice a week have lower chances of getting heart disease than one who has sex once a month. There are chances it could do the same thing for men. So if you want to have top-notch heart function, have regular sex.

6. Sex is Good For Your Mental Health

Yes. You read that right. Sex is good for your mental health. This is a very important thing to know. 

Did you know that couples who have more sex are less prone to depression or other mental health challenges? 

Also, couples who have regular sex may be less likely to fight than couples who do not. Most of the time, when your partner seems cranky and irritable, all they need is some good sex, and when they have great sex, they would be as good as new, believe me. 

Make good use of that information. 

7. You May Not Have Prostrate Cancer All Your Life

Regular sex reduces your risk of having prostate cancer. This is swell news for men. 

Regular ejaculation has been found to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. A study has shown that men who ejaculate up to 21 times in a month are very less likely to be down with prostrate cancer, in glaring contrast to men who ejaculate about four to five times in a month.

8. Sex is also an Exercise

True, sex is a form of exercise. A study made with the participation of about 21 heterosexual couples showed that for every half hour spent having sex, they lost about 85 calories! The authors further went on to tell us that the calories lost could even be more than that lost during a jog or some good old walk!

Although you could burn the same amount of calories while engaging in some other activity like driving or working at the daycare but which do you think is more fun? Sex all the way. 

9. Sex Gives You an Immunity Boost

Do you know that the more sex you have, the more increased your immunity’s ability to deal with pathogens? So people who have regular sex are a lot less likely to fall ill than people who do not. 

A very sexually active friend of mine almost never fell ill. When I asked why, she was kind enough to tell me it was because she had sex very often. I compared her to myself, who at the time hardly ever had sex. I would come down with the next available variant of flu. Somehow, having regular sex makes her immune system way stronger than mine.

10. Sex Improves the Pelvic Walls of Women

About 30% of women have incontinence at some point in their lives. This is a loss of bladder control. This is why you might pee a little when you laugh, sneeze, or cough. 

Sex is an exercise that strengthens the walls of your pelvis. For every orgasm you get, your pelvic walls become stronger. Making it way easier for you to control your bladder and slop those little droplets of urine from ruining your panties and mood. So, have sex today!


Sex has a lot of benefits, and you should try having more sex.
