5 Ways Good Sex Can Save Your Relationship
It’s more fun than just talking …
Good sex can save your relationship … and it isn’t so much of a mystery as to how!
Sex can be as much a part of healthy relationships as communication, honesty, and other forms of physical and emotional intimacy are, which is why having a great sex life can help you rescue your relationship from a bad place — or keep it from getting there altogether.
Having sex can make your bond with your partner stronger than ever, so if you want to learn how to save your relationship when it’s crumbling, look no further than your sex life.
But can your relationship, one that is really struggling, one in which you no longer laugh and the closeness has disappeared, really be saved?
Yes! Sex can save your relationship, even if you’re not having a lot (or any) of it right now.
“Wait,” you say. “What? No way. I am not having sex with them.”
Yes, you can. And yes, you should!
Here are 5 benefits of good sex that can save your relationship, if it’s struggling.
1. Sex creates an intimate connection.
Sexual intimacy is one of the key signs of a healthy relationship. Sex between two people who care about each other is about connection — intimate non-verbal connection. In many ways, it’s the most important kind of connection because it is purely organic.
When two people are struggling in a relationship, it can be difficult to connect verbally without making a mess. But the act of holding hands and kissing, of touching and pressing your bodies close, can allow connection without words — connection that is, in many ways, more effective than talking.
So try it. Try the touching and the kissing and the rolling around. It just might open things up between the two of you in a life changing way.
2. Orgasms release feel-good chemicals.
Did you know that when you have an orgasm, your body is flooded with dopamine, a chemical that makes you feel like you can take on the world? And the effects of that dopamine last for hours.
Imagine how it would feel for you and your partner, freshly connected and flooded with dopamine, spending time together. Pretty great, no? Maybe it will help you remember why you fell for each other in the first place!
3. Having sex is fun.
Sex is fun. It just is. And funny.
Think of all of the fumbling and nakedness and gymnastics. The rolling around, trying to fit together. Chemicals flowing freely. It’s almost impossible not to smile and laugh and be happy.
And there is no better antidote to a struggling relationship than some happy times together.
So try it. You might find yourselves smiling together. Wouldn’t that be fun?
