Positive health implication of sex to couples

01 July 2014, 13:07 Richard Babatunde Ajayi

Marriage watered with love through prayer is amazing. All other things to make the journey successful as created by God make it more beautiful if properly employed. Sex is key to mutual loving between the husband and the wife. It is never an aberration if well employed and it has some other merits on one’s health. Sex becomes an aberration between couples only if used as a weapon of suppression, intimidation and fear by either of the couple. Then it is becoming bestial in nature. Sex is meant to be enjoyed really. It is a great gift God has given to couples. Couples in this sense are those who are joined together properly as husbands and wives – males to females in real sense.

The Holy Scripture does not in any form encourage nor recognize any other manipulation different from man marrying a woman. However, never be bored unnecessarily when your partner needs you for sex because it as well helps you to live long through sound health. Apart from giving you moment of pleasure in the bedroom, having an active sex life will make you feel comfortable with your spouse, and gives security to your marital home. Your health, your heart, your head, your hormones all depend on a healthy sexual relationship. Never feel unconcerned when you are needed for the exercise by your spouse. You must work it out. You must succeed and enjoy the beauty and pleasure, but only if you are properly married. Let it make the two of you babies together, needing to be cuddled, pampered and petted.

Looking  Better, Feeling Better and satisfied
: Sex is a physical exercise that straightens the muscles, burns fats and restores body to normalcy if not in normal form. It can burn an extra 100 calories per half hour even when not employed frequently. These are the results of related research.  Couple may not waste money on a gym membership. They can work out a sweat, and then enjoy a long, hot shower together. It keeps the couple in form.

Getting Fertile
: It has been scientifically proved that women who have regular sex with their men, once a week or more, are significantly more likely to menstruate on a regular cycle and experience fewer fertility problems than the abstinent or sex-deprived. Logically too, for a couple to have a baby, distance should be avoided  and they need to have lots of sex. Though many couples make the mistake of “saving up” all their sexy for ovulation, the scientific community has proved that regular sex, including oral and manual stimulation, does not only make it easier to get pregnant but can prepare the body to carry a healthy, full-term pregnancy. It has been proved as well by scientists that partners who engage in regular sexual contact have an increase in conception rates but fewer incidents of miscarriage, preeclampsia (a condition characterized by proteinuria, hypertension and oedema, usually arising from the latter part of pregnancy) and high blood pressure.

Improving Your Immunity: For a couple to maintain  and improve their immunity, they need regular sex. Regular sex, 1-2 times a week or more,  provides up to a 30% increase in salivary immunoglobulin,  while sex,  less than once a week showed a slight benefit over the abstinent, a research has proved.  To make you  a happy couple with healthy sex life, through the microbial input of foreign fluids, you just must have sex, not just fun for the fun of it.

Preventing Disease:
For you to banish disease, you must go for sex as it boosts the immunity. Regular sex and intimate touch even if it is as simple as a hug prevents high blood pressure, heart disease, prostate cancer, and all illnesses and disorders related to stress. It has been proven to initiate the release of oxytocin into the blood stream, which naturally lowers blood pressure and heart rate. Having sex two or more times per week could be enough to cut a man’s risk for heart attack in half but really, it is recommended that 21 times of sex within a month keeps the body fit! Frequent ejaculations have been linked to a lower risk for prostate cancer in later life. Having sex frequently by a couple also banishes extraneous diseases that could have been imported through extra-marital sex. Then, why should either of the couple not embrace mutual sex between them?

Pain Reliever
: Frequent sexual activity initiate the release of oxytocin. Those great chemicals, oxytocin in particular,  boost pain tolerance up to 50% – menstrual cramps, migraines, chronic pain of any kind can be relieved with an orgasm or three! Even if one is not interested in trying to conceive, regular sexual activity has been shown to be equally effective in regulating the menstrual cycle as it is in relieving menstrual cramps.

Discouraging masturbation:
When there is regular sex between a couple, masturbation does not have a resting place in their hearts. Masturbation remains a sin. It troubles the mind and makes one enslaved, misogynist or misandrist or generally, a misanthrope.                                                                                                                  

Removing unnecessary formality: Regular sex between couples encourages mutuality, liberty, sound communication, respect for each other, love and fidelity. There is that freedom with each other in the home when one makes sexual relationship a regular exercise devoid of whatever inhibition or troublesomeness. This is a period issues are revisited and settled without any interloper meddling.

Necessary Tips for Couples on Sex

Regular sexual activities are good to making the couple trust each other, build confidence in each other, energizes the mutual relationship and helps in bringing harmony to the Home. However, for couples, legally married and religiously supported, sex should not be denied the beauty with which it has been divinely created without any abuse. Afterall, sex is meant for the matured . The mind and the whole body must be harmonized through foreplay for such activity to be meaningful between a couple. However, unless jealously guarded, sex can mar or make a relationship.
