When sex is scarce and we don’t have it for long periods of time, our body can come to “feel” that lack and manifest it in different ways. We don’t just talk about little sex when we don’t have a partner and what we have is casual sex (at which point we may get more pleasure than ever and not always because of tinder), but of be in a couple and do it for example once a year and with luck.
We don’t judge, don’t get me wrong. There is no rule of how many times does a couple have to have sex for it to work. There are couples who never touch each other and others who need to touch each other every day, as if they had a need under their skin. In fact, the one who writes has gone through both.
In the same way, in the same relationship there are times as a couple when sex can disappear and streaks in which we do it almost daily. But it is also true that the lack of sex can have consequences in our body according to sciencejust like the orgasms have health benefits like relieving anxiety or helping us sleep better.
Less orgasms, more stress
When we have an orgasm we release oxytocin and endorphins that can help reduce stress., at least temporarily, and generate positive feelings that make us happier. Thus, sex reduces stress and also helps us to relieve pain according to The Journal of Sex Medicineand its lack can cause us not to regulate stress levels so easily.
There are more risks of increasing your blood pressure
A study published in the medical journal Biological Psychology ensures that hePeople who have regular sex have lower blood pressure levels than those people who don’t.
Your immune system is weakened
Sexologists Carl Charnetski and Francis Brennan Jr. conducted A study in which it was established that those people with a more active sex life have a higher concentration of antibodies in your organism. Thus, orgasms are beneficial for our defenses and without them, our immune system weakens.
