A Sierra Leonean lady has gone for after she shared an important message on sex and health message which has got Nigerians talking on social media. According to the lady, everyone should endeavour to have sex frequently because it does a lot of good to the body. Sharing her opinion on Valentine’s day, she listed the benefits of frequent sex.
“Sex, good sex, at least 4, 5 times in a week. Just get sex. Sex is good for the heart. Make love for at least 5 or 6 days in a week. 2 or 3 times per day. And see your health condition. Sex is cardio. E dey help the heart, e dey help the immune system. E de build up your self esteem……..
There are many reasons to have sex more often, at least when it comes to quality sex in a supportive relationship. More frequent sexual activity is linked to physical benefits, such as lower blood pressure, emotional perks, such as reduced stress, and relationship benefits, such as greater intimacy and a lower divorce rate. While there is not a magic number when it comes to the ideal frequency of sex, the results of a few studies can suggest a ballpark.
As far as the ideal frequency, a 2015 study found that general well-being is associated with sexual frequency, but only up to a certain point. Relationship satisfaction improved progressively from having no sex up to having sex once a week but did not improve further (and actually decreased somewhat) beyond this point.
Even though the frequency often decreases with age, sexual activity in older adults remains very important to many people. Those who are married people tend to have sex more often than those who are not.
There are many emotional and psychological benefits from making love that is strongly linked with the overall quality of life. Some of these include:
According to a 2015 study conducted in China, more sex and better quality sex increases happiness (though unwanted sex lowers happiness).
There are a number of chemicals our bodies release during sex that can affect how we feel. During sex, our brains release endorphins—”feel good” chemicals that can reduce irritability and feelings of depression.
