Intimate relationships

Sex is at the center of everything. It is the one activity that humans have and will always want and seek regardless of what obstacles may stand in their way. But despite all the desire to have sex, this pleasurable activity is not a given to every single one of us. For many it is a luxury that they can’t have, for others it is the forbidden fruit that they are not allowed to touch and for others who have it, a dry spell may occur and leave them wanting for an undefined period of time. For all those, we give our condolences first. Second, they may be interested to know what happens to your body when you deprive yourself of your carnal wantings.

The effects of sexual dry spells are numerous. To begin, it’s an established fact that sex is one of the best ways to relax and blow off steam. Therefore, and according to a recent scottish study, it makes sense that those who do not have enough sex find it difficult to deal with stressful situations and are more inclined to be stressed and anxious. This is due to the fact that sex causes the brain to release endorphins and oxytocin (Two famous “feel good” chemical agents) which give you a relaxing sensation and help with stress relief.

  • Another male specific drawback of not having intercourse is the fact that those with an active sex life are 20 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer. This perk is due to ejaculation’s ability to remove potentially harmful substances from the prostate.
  • Sex also boosts your bodily supply of immunoglobulin according to an American research. This increase affects a substance that is known to be the body’s first line of defense against viruses like the flu and the common cold. So more sex means less illness and sick days.

And last but not least, the lack of sex can also have some mental consequences, such as depressive symptoms for long periods of abstinence and a risk of erectile dysfunction for men who lose it because they don’t use it.

So, what are you waiting for, go make some love!
