Exclusive Tips for Feeling Intimacy When You Don’t Feel Good

 

Sexual intercourse is a vital part of any relationship. It can promote feelings of intimacy and tenderness between couples, and it can help to strengthen the bond between two partners. Throughout any relationship, it is common for a couple’s sex life to begin to suffer. This can be caused by a number of different factions. Stress and fatigue are common complaints, while the natural aging process can also adversely effect a couple’s sex life. Illness and disease are also causes of a decreased sex life. While many of the causes are unavoidable, it does not have to mean your sex life also needs to suffer. There are actually several reasons why you should have sex when you don’t feel good.

Why You Should Have Sex When You Don’t Feel Good

Sex may be the last thing on your mind when you do not feel your best, and it is also a well-used excuse. In a recent study, The University of Chicago’s Center for Demography and Economics of Aging in Illinois found that there is evidence to support their theory, that a lack of sexual intercourse can adversely affect a couple’s relationship. In direct relation to this finding, researchers also learned that couples who still engage in regular sexual activities have a closer and more satisfying relationship with each other. Sexual intercourse can also help to relieve some of the stress that can accompany an illness. Our bodies also release endorphins during sexual intercourse. These endorphin can help to elevate your mood and let you forget for a while that you do not feel your best.
