Although several world movements are springing up to highlight the mind-body connection and its importance in a woman’s life, one of the most critical aspects of the mind-body connection, sexuality is often ignored and overlooked by women.
Women play many different roles in their daily lives; we are mothers, sisters, daughters, bosses, employees, and wives. It is easy to lose track of our intimate desires while performing these duties every day. Its time for women to focus on their sexual well-being.
Frequent Sex Is An Indicator Of Good Health
There is a proven correlation between sex and the good health of an individual. According to the American Sexual Health Foundation, Sex has been shown to promote better sleep habits, less stress, more happiness, etc. Sex is a healthy bodily function. Our bodies thrive on the chemicals released during orgasm, so a healthy sex life is indeed part of a healthy body.” It is also a fact that sex makes you feel younger and look younger than you are. This is because the female body produces estrogen during sex, which is a great contributor to the youthful look that so many women crave. According to one study, regular sex could have changes in a woman’s appearance that could make her look 7-12 years younger! Another study conducted on the same grounds showed a positive effect of regular sex on a woman’s memory.
Sex is also a great exercise. It gets your heart running, makes you sweat, burns many calories, and strengthens your pelvic floor. Sex is so helpful that it could count as a part of your active daily routine and running and hitting the gym.
Sex Improves Your Relationship
Dr. Ryan observes, “When a couple is sexually disconnected, they may start to turn away from their partner instead of turning toward them.” Hence, couples need to stay sexually connected to keep the romance alive. When the sexual foundation of the relationship you are in crumbles, it is very likely that different parts of your life will also share the same fate. It is also a fact that the most frequent cause of breakups and divorce is sexual incompatibility, infidelity, and disconnection.
The inverse of the above is also true. When you stay in touch with your sexuality and have a positive relationship with it, you are more empowered and engaged to be fully present for your partner and yourself. The stronger and better your bond with your own body and sexuality, the better skill set you will have to tackle problems as and when they arise.
However, maintaining a respectful relationship with your body and your partner is not something that accidentally happens. The ability to connect with your partner and tune in with your own body is something that has to be carefully honed and cultivated through deliberate effort and intention.
Even if you don’t have a sexual partner, nurturing your sexuality helps you learn healthy ways to explore your own body. Self-exploration enables you to maintain a sense of intimacy and self-care with your own body, making you more comfortable with yourself. It also makes you more self-aware and helps you choose a more viable partner when looking for one.
Sex Is An Essential Human Function
Sex is as natural as breathing or eating. Although it is still taboo in most modern societies, few people realize that the inherent need for sex is not just mental, but genetic. Healthy and regular Sex is the medium through which we reproduce offspring to carry on our bloodline. If you are suppressing your need for sexual expression or settling for unsatisfying sex for a lifetime, you will get more resentful with each passing day.
Great sex also builds an emotional connection between partners, making them more susceptible to cues that may indicate compatibility in the long term.
