Marriage is a lifetime commitment, however, just saying this doesn’t give any fruitful results unless you actually work on it to make your marital bond happy and successful. So, how to make your married life blessed? Yes, there are many commitments which you make and fulfill for leading a booming life, but the most important always remains your sexual bonding and your physical satisfaction with your partner. Without sexual satisfaction, any other achievement seems futile. Physical satisfaction means building an intimate and strong relationship with your partner and working together on giving sexual bliss to each other. Sex is the only act you share exclusively with your partner but, it is also the only act about which married couples do not often talk to each other. The need is to get out of mechanical acts and making sex a routine task. Instead, take it as the most beautiful moments you spend with each other.
Why is Sex Important?
Sex is about pleasure and intimacy. It helps make bonds between couples stronger and deeper and reinforces the attraction between couples. It also releases endorphins, chemicals that make you feel happier and well-loved. All of these aspects help to boost your confidence in yourself, your partner and the emotional strength of your relationship. Overall, sex improves your quality of life.
Sex Enhances Communication and Trust
Since sex is such an intimate act, it requires you to communicate with your partner on a deeper level. You should talk to your partner about your deeper emotions and they must share the same with you. For instance, you and your partner need to talk about what turns you on, what turns you off, what touches help enhance the sexual experience and what touches both of you don’t enjoy. You also need to show your vulnerabilities while accepting and protecting your partner’s vulnerabilities. Doing this enhances helps in enhancing your comfort level in the relationship. Think about it – if you can discuss sex with your partner, you can share other things without feeling awkward or embarrassed. As time passes, you will find that it also helps to build and maintain trust in your relationship.
Physical Benefits of Sex
Not only does sex improve the quality of your relationship but also the physical health of you and your partner. Research shows that people who are sexually active live healthier lifestyles. The endorphins released during the act make you and your partner feel good and enhance your moods.
Like any other physical activity, sex also burns calories. In addition, sexually active couples have higher levels of immunoglobin A, an antibody that helps deal with illnesses such as colds and flu. Studies have also shown that the oxytocin released during climax helps us sleep better, renews our energy and boosts the immune system. It also reduces the risk of heart diseases among both men and women. In addition, it helps with pain control and decreases the level of pain experienced post-sex.
Sex also helps women by making periods lighter and reducing cramps during that time. It helps lower blood pressure, increases bladder control and protects against endometriosis, a debilitating condition that often leads to infertility. Amongst men, sexual activity reduces the risk of prostate cancer.
Sex has many physical, mental and emotional benefits and helps married couples improve and strengthen their relationship. While talking about sex is still a taboo in society, but doing so can only help to make your marriage a long-lasting and helpful construct, allowing you and your partner to ensure a long and happy married life.
