Here Are Some Secrets You Wish You Knew.


In some conservative countries, children are not exposed to sex education. They often fantasize about romantic relationships because they want to share their desire and bond with their partners. So, which is more important in this context? Is it love or sex?

According to the medical perspective, love is a luxury, and sex is necessary for our lives. So, here are the answers to why sex is more important than love.

Benefits of Sex

Sex and sexuality are a part of life. Aside from reproduction, sex can be about intimacy and pleasure. Healthy sex life will bring us various benefits.

• Partnered sex tends to have some cardiovascular health benefits, especially in women. Sexually active women have a lower risk of cardiac events.

• Ensure good health by lowering blood pressure.

• Able to have better physical fitness because sex is an excellent exercise and equivalent to brisk walking activities.

• Boost the immune system of the human body by having a higher level of a specific antibody.


These benefits above can relieve pain, regulate the endocrine system, and improve an individual’s mental state. However, this would only be possible after some time if a safe and healthy sex life is practised.


What happens when you stop having sex?

At some point in their life, people won’t have sex for some time. People who are not in a relationship may continue to wait until they meet the right person. When the connection in a relationship diminishes, it will lead to a lack of sexual activity. Often people do not wish to have sex. So, what happens when you don’t have sex for a long time?

 Physical health:

 For women, a long break can be uncomfortable. The female body takes longer to be aroused and produce enough lubrication to make intercourse relaxed and straightforward. Regular intercourse or masturbation can keep the vaginal tissues healthy by improving blood flow. However, for men, the number of times they have sex is linked to the chances of developing prostate cancer. A study shows that men who said they ejaculated more than 21 a month on average had a lower risk of prostate cancer.

 Mental health:

 When there is no sexual activity, endorphins and oxytocin hormones won’t be released. These neurochemicals help managing anxiety and stress. Oxytocin has the extra benefit that could help to fall asleep faster. Thus, making it more challenging to cope with stress without sex. Going too long without having sex can make you lose interest in sex entirely. This would affect your relationship as you and your partner stop feeling connected.

 There is no right or wrong way to express your sexual desires if you have consent from your partner. Sexual behavior has the ability to increase or sustain wellbeing on a variety of factors. However, this does not imply that you must have sex to be or remain healthy. When it comes to sex, everyone has different preferences and needs. If you’re going through a dry spell, spend some time getting to know your interests.
