The 3 Most Important Things I've Learned About Sex This Year

I am not a sexpert. I do fancy myself quite the sexplorer, though, and this year I have discovered a lot throughout my sexplorations. These are the 3 most important things I've learned about sex this past year.

Sex is healthy.

  • Lowers blood pressure. Sex can help lower systolic blood pressure (that’s the first number on your blood pressure test!)
  • It’s a natural remedy for pain. Having an orgasm can block pain as it releases a hormone to increase your pain threshold.

  • Burns calories. Sex is a fantastic way to get your cardio in!

  • Sex can help balance hormones which in turn help keeps your heart healthy and can lower your risk of heart attack.

  • Helps improve sleep. A hormone called prolactin is released after orgasm that helps make us sleepy and relaxed.

  • Plus, being close to each other can soothe stress and anxiety.

Sex is bonding.

  • Sex is a powerful connection between just the two of you. It affirms just how precious and important your marriage is. Make time for it. It has the power to communicate love and desire.
  • Oxytocin is released into our bodies during sex. Oxytocin is known as the “cuddle hormone” or “love hormone” because it does just that. It enhances emotional bonds between two people. I suppose this is the reason “make up sex” is a thing?

Sex is fun!

There were many topics that we discussed this year, that honestly, if I did not have a sex podcast, I would not have looked into as deeply: bondage, um. . . anal, and dirty talk to name a few. The more I looked into these topics, the less taboo they became and I realized that they were merely variations that couples could throw in the mix to make sex more fun and exciting! Sex is important but it shouldn’t be viewed as a duty. We get to have sex with our spouse! We get to share that with them and we get to sexplore together!

Thank you for a fun year! We’ve learned a lot and we can’t wait to learn even more. This is the last episode of the year, and back by popular demand are Mr. Big and Daddy Magic to handle a couple more Q and A’s. This time, though, they are on their own!
