How Can Sex Help You Deal With Stress?

Being an adult is hard work. We have so many things to think about worry about on a daily basis that, at some point or another, you will have to worry about stress. We can get stressed over absolutely anything, whether it is an unexpected bill, an upcoming deadline for work, or even relationship troubles.

How Can Sex Help You Deal With Stress

Being stressed can dramatically change our personality. We might have a shorter temper, or we could get tired a lot sooner. How we act when stressed will change from person to person, but did you know that sex is an effective way of dealing with it?

The benefits of sex

We don’t really need any excuses to have sex. After all, it feels amazing and is a hell of a lot of fun to do, especially if you have a partner in the bedroom who knows you and your turn ons really well. However, there are a number of benefits to having sex that we think you should know about, if you don’t already.

For a start, it has been proven that sexually active people will take fewer sick days. This is because your body produces more antibodies to fight infections, meaning you are less likely to become ill.

It is also a fantastic way to stop pain. The “not tonight, dear, I have a headache” line isn’t going to work any more. Orgasms help to block pain, and so you’ll find that your headache isn’t quite as intense. Some women report that an orgasm can help with cramping when they are on their periods, so perhaps you should be jumping into bed instead of reaching for the aspirin.

How sex can help with stress

These are just a handful of the benefits you’ll feel from sex… but there are others that can really help you when you are feeling a little stressed out. Having sex can actually help you to calm down and relax when you feel tense… but how does it work?

There has been research in the past to show that there is a link between lower blood pressure and sex. Just like regular exercise, regular sex can help to bring your blood pressure down. A high blood pressure could be a sign of stress, and so sex is a good way to combat it.

There’s also another benefit for those feeling stressed and hoping that sex is the answer. When you are touching and being intimate with your partner, your body releases endorphins. This feel-good hormone can put a stop to stress and put you at ease.

Too stressed for sex?

There might be times when you simply feel far too stressed to have sex. This is perfectly fine, and it actually happens a lot. When we feel stress, it can actually have a big impact on our sex lives, which makes it difficult to fuck our way out of stress.

We start to feel shit about ourselves. We might look at ourselves in the mirror and hate what we see. This then makes us wonder why our partner would want to fuck us. It can also make it hard to perform. Stress can do this to anyone, so it is important to recognise it when it happens.

If you are feeling a little too stressed for sex, it is worth taking the time to talk to your partner. They might have a few suggestions for you. Why not try a slow and sensual massage after a long bath? This can help to release tension, and you might just find that their hands on your body turn you on!
