10 Good Reasons To Make More Time For Sex

Sex is a really important part of any romantic relationship. Sometimes it gets a bad reputation as being completely divisive, but the truth is that sex is the line that separates friendship from romance, and that’s an important line to draw. There are a lot of unexpected benefits of having a lot of good sex; these are just a few of them.

  1. You wake up happier every day. When you’re sexually satisfied, you wake up with an extra bounce in your step and smile more. Those magical orgasms really do pick up your entire mood, and it shows.
  2. You think about your lover a lot. When you’re having really good sex, you’re naturally floating on cloud 9 and it’s all because of the person who’s pleasing you in bed. Of course, that means they’re going to be on your mind constantly. It’s okay that you’re thinking about them so much; they’ve given you good reason to.
  3. You sleep better. Mind-blowing orgasms are a surefire way to sleep really well. When you’re not sexually satisfied, insomnia can run rampant, but, fortunately, that’s an ailment your partner can cure using all natural means.
  4. You form a deeper connection. When you’re sexually involved with someone, you can’t help but form a deeper connection with them. Your entire worlds become intertwined, and the euphoria you share becomes intoxicating.
  5. You don’t need to “take matters into your own hands” as much. When you’re in a dry spell, you tend to spend a lot of time attempting to fulfill your own needs. You can provide yourself enough satisfaction to get through, but it’s never as good as the real thing, and that becomes painfully obvious when you start having good sex again.
  6. You focus on the important things more easily. When you’re going through a dry spell, you’re more prone to drift off into random fantasies at inopportune times. When your needs are being met, you can control the drifting more easily and focus on the important tasks at hand.
  7. You burn calories. Sex is great exercise, and it’s more fun than any other workout. Sure, you could go to the gym as a couple but wouldn’t it be so much more fun to stay home in the bedroom for a few hours?
  8. You learn how to please your partner. It’s a real ego boost when you know how to please your partner, and the power dynamic can be fun for both of you.
  9. You learn new tricks. Can you ever really learn too many good sex tricks? If you answered yes, you need to rethink your life. Good sex is central to life, and you can always learn more fun tricks to make it better.
  10. You ignite the spark in your relationship daily. You need that spark to keep your relationship fresh and interesting through everything life throws at you. Especially when you’re in a long term relationship, keeping it interesting in the bedroom is a great way to keep the spark alive throughout the years.
