Improving your Sexual Health, your sex life, directly Improves Mental Health!
Have you ever come across this statement, “that guy is annoying, he needs to get laid!”
This statement may be taken offensively, but it is not totally wrong. Sex may not fix all the problems (I wish it could), but it can have measurable benefits on your mental wellness and physical health. According to DR Martha Lee, a sexologist, sex is not hormonal but is mainly about health. Whether sex is expressed with a partner or ourselves, our sex life is a source of great pleasure and meaning in our lives.
It is a sure-fire that sex is good for the brain and the body in general and it can bring immediate and long term benefits, especially as you age.
So are you feeling under the weather? A possibility that you need some lovemaking with a partner or that dildo you are hiding in your drawer. Let us look at the correlation between sexual health and your mental health
Most people have this perception that sex is all about the body, but there are a lot of activities happening in the brains. For both males and females, our feelings and thoughts have an essential role in getting us turned on and making us remain that way.
Depression and anxiety have an implication on our arousal, and it can ruin the mood. They make it hard for you to relax and enjoy sex, overshadowing it with intrusive distractions and a host of worries. When your body is unwell, sex is normally not the topmost thing in our minds.
Feeling stressed-up or anxious! Get down to business, have an orgasm and Improve Mental Health.
Stress can have serious implications for your physical health. Stress is caused by psychological factors and varies between people. Stress can cause all kinds of problems from muscle tension, Erctile Disfunction, difficulty in sleeping, and mild headaches. It can go as far as resulting in chronic depression. Different studies have confirmed the effect of having an orgasm changes the cortisol level. Cortisol is the hormone that moves around the body in response to stress levels. Orgasms due to self-pleasure or with a partner increase oxytocin, endorphins, and dopamine hormones that lower the cortisol levels.
Orgasm increases the level of blood flow throughout the body, which takes pressure from your brain. An orgasm relaxes your body. Therefore, active sex life can be the key to boosting your health status and reducing stress.
There is no better way of saying ‘sex is like food”: it is bad if you are not getting enough. On this fact, a complete lack of sex is harmful. Some evidence suggests that the lack of sexual connection is connected to feelings of low self worth and depression. If you feel down, you should opt for masturbation. If it does not work, then try hooking up with someone. According to Dr. Lee, one of the reasons why people have sex is to boost their self-esteem. Self Esteem, confidence, positive outlook, and self love, directly increase Improved Mental Health.
All of us have psychological needs to fulfill to sustain our mental health. Sex may not be a fundamental need, but it is an essential part of having a connection and love. According to Abraham Maslow, there are five fundamental human needs and love, and connection is one of them. We are required to fulfil our human psychological needs regularly to remain stable. If some psychological needs are not frequently met, our mental health is affected.
Not getting enough sleep? Get down to business! Good Sleep is important for both mental and physical health. Think about how you feel when your body has rested. Think about how moody and fatigued you are when you have not caught enough sleep. If you have trouble sleeping, try having sex or masturbating before bedtime. The prolactin hormone released after orgasm makes you relaxed and sleepy. Getting good sleep directly Improves Mental Health.
Sex is Important for Intimacy
Being in a relationship does not mean you have sex regularly. Relationships are not easy. Due to the pressures of life, couples just don’t have sex enough. It is simply starts with both partners no wanting to have sex, and then you start resenting each other. This brings a drift in the relationship, and you may not want to have sex with your partner at all.
It may seem obvious, but it is important to remind yourself that having frequent sexual connection brings a difference in how you get along with people. Intimacy keeps you in a position to connect on a deeper level. Partners who are emotionally connected have the possibility of having frequent sex than the partners who feel estranged and distant. Having sex or even masturbaiting, brings anti depressent hormones into your brain, this improves all relationships, and Improves Mental Health.
For both males and females, sexual pleasure and satisfaction have been demonstrated to increase the brain activity connected to pain and mental health
Sexual health will not benefit your mental health if you don’t use protection (I am sure you already know that!). Communicate honestly and openly to also protect your emotional expectations. Be confident about what you want.
