4 reasons sex is a must

22 October 2015, 19:02 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  I am not saying that sex should be used as a solution to every situation but it helps to some extent in reaching your partner. You reach them and then solve the subject. Not reach them and doze off to forget the matter. That is not how it should work.

It is another way of getting your partner to open up to you

Sex creates emotional intimacy and that is the first step of reaching your partner if they were not comfortable talking to you about something. Blame it on oxytocin or the other intimacy hormone but your partner feels closer to you. If you are not having sex at all, you find that your partner slowly distances themselves from you emotionally and that means you are headed for disaster. They will look for that intimacy elsewhere.

If you want them to actually talk to you about something you know has been bothering them, after sex is the best time.

A way of comforting your partner

I At times your partner does not want to talk because it was a bad time/ day, when they are sad, or any other emotional turmoil. The hormones produced during sex do actually work to calm someone down in the aftermath. They might still not want to engage in any conversation afterwards but they feel a little better enough to calm down.

It helps build trust in a relationship

When you can tell them what is not working for you. When you two are able to actually tell the other what they are doing wrong or right. It helps them know that you cared enough to let them know something was not working out rather than going out and looking for it elsewhere. It creates a sense of deep honesty in a relationship.

It creates a closer bond

Refer to all the above pointers and also the hormones that are produced. Sex actually just makes you closer in the simplest way possible. You can build from there if that relationship is important to you but not use it as a foundation.
