Reasons why sex is important

12 May 2016, 16:51

Sex is most definitely an important aspect in any relationship. 

Besides binding couples together, sex has several other biological benefits. 

Below are some of the benefits one can reap from being an active sex life; 

1. Sleep inducer
Having insomnia? Forget piriton and other sleep inducing pills, sex is the answer! 

A 2012 French medical research council established that sex is better than counting sheep, when it comes to taking one to slumberland. 
The study found the bodyreleases relaxing chemicals such as serotonin after orgasm, helping maintain healthy sleep patterns.  It was also established that men were more likely to feel sleepy after sex –which means they do have an excuse for nodding off instead of wanting to get freakish..

2.Libido boosterIt is said that appetite comes with eating. The same can be said of sex.  Jumping between the sheets can help couples with low libido.  it is through having sex frequently that will make sex better and will improve their low  libido.
3 Cravings soother  Some studies show orgasms can act to regulate our appetites and cravings. Throughout intercourse the body produces phenethylamine, a natural amphetamine that may help to reduce cravings for junk food, cigarettes and binge eating. The pleasure of touching, kissing and cuddling lowers the level of the stress hormone cortisol and boosts the body’s “happy “hormones such as oxytocin. 
4 PainkillerNext time your better  half gives the standard excuse of a headache as a reason why they won't have sex,  , tellthem sex is actually an excellent painkiller. Orgasms can halve the body’s sensitivity to pain, including back pain, migraine and arthritis.
