There are several key points you need to keep in mind if you want to improve physical intimacy in a relationship. From poor body image to boredom, there are several barriers to intimacy.
If you are having some difficulties with your sex life, consider the following tips to improving it.
1. Take Your Lady for a Sumptuous Dinner
According to a recent study, this is not to set her mood right. This is to stave off her hunger pangs first. The study from the University of California-San Diego has found that women with full stomachs are more likely to have sex with her partner than women with empty stomachs.
“What [the study] does suggest is that our brains respond to different rewards with similar circuitry, and that they interact with each other. One class of rewards (food, sex, money) potentially could make other classes of rewards more exciting or pleasant,” postdoctoral researcher Alice Ely she was quoted as saying.
2. Share Daily Chores to Enjoy More
A new study has indicated that men who offer a fair contribution to housework enjoy more frequent and better sex. The findings directly contradict a 2012 research which claimed that when men carry out traditionally ‘female’ chores – such as laundry and cooking – the couple had less sex.
3. Split Childcare Duties
When female partners were responsible for most of the childcare, men and women reported poor quality relationships and sex lives. Researchers from the Georgia State University (GSU) state that couples who split childcare responsibilities enjoy quality sex lives compared to those who do not.
4. What is the Best Time to Have Sex?
According to researchers, the best time to have sex is 5.48 in the morning. In the morning, a man’s level of testosterone is at its peak (from 25% to 50% more than at any other time).
“The raised levels in the morning mean most men will wake up two to three times a week with erections,” Ashley Grossman, neuroendocrinology professor at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London was quoted as saying.
5. More Sex Doesn’t Mean More Happiness
As many as 128 healthy participants (age 35-65), took part in the study. The participants were divided into two groups. The first group got no instructions on sexual frequency. The second group was instructed to double the frequency of their weekly physical intimacy. Results show that simply having more sex did not make people happier. This is because the increased frequency led to a decline in the genuine desire for sex.
