At Luvkis, we normally like to talk about sex. But we all know, there is so much more to being intimate with your partner than just sex. What about cuddling, kissing, or even having a normal chat? There are plenty of ways to be intimate with the person you love, each of which with its own benefits.
If you like to get intimate with your partner, and we’re sure you do, then we have good news for you! Displaying your affections for your partner does not only lift up the mood, but it will also have a positive effect on your health! That’s right, talking, kissing, cuddling, and having sex is good for your health. Why? Well, it all comes down to Oxytocin. This special hormone gets released when you engage in a satisfying act which can be as simple as receiving a hug. The hormone itself is linked to a number of positive physiological reactions such as pain relief, stress release, and pair bonding. In fact, having a short hug with your partner and holding hands for just 10 minutes per day will greatly reduce your stress and uplift your mood.
Below, we have listed down the 4 most common ways to be intimate. Ranging from having a simple chat all the way up to having sex - here are the best reasons for you to be intimate!
Having a chat
We all know, the key to a healthy relationship is communication! However, there are so many more benefits to having a talk. Simply spending some no-touch time together with your partner makes both of you feel at ease and gives you the chance to bond. According to recent studies, having a simple chat with your partner reduces stress and even lowers your blood pressure. In fact, it has been scientifically proven that people who engage in a healthy relationship or marriage suffer significantly less from heart disease compared to those who don’t. So remember, talking is not only good for your relationship, but it also improves your health!
Sometimes, we just can’t express our feelings for the one we love in words. When this is the case for you, cuddling will be a perfect alternative to having a chat! Cuddling, also known as ‘’endurance hugging’’, offers a great way to show your partner how you feel for him. In fact, according to many marriage and family therapists out there, cuddling is a perfect form of non-verbal communication that allows you to show both love and understanding to your partner. Added to that, when you cuddle, your body is furthermore known to release that sweet Oxytocin we’ve told you about. As a result, your feelings of closeness, comfort, and happiness will increase.
We all know that once we start to cuddle, a kiss is not far away! Just like cuddling, kissing your partner will raise your levels of Oxytocin. As a result, you’ll feel comfortable and more relaxed. But this is not all! Did you know that some good smoochin’ actually offers a great way to keep your mouth clean as well? That’s right - when you’re kissing, you also flush away bacteria and plaque from your teeth. So, if you want to have that pearl white smile that you’ve always dreamed about, remember to brush, floss, rinse.... and kiss!
Last but certainly not least, there is sex! I guess that we can all agree that having sex is one of the best feelings in the world which, on its own, already is a great benefit. But did you know that, besides feeling great, sex also brings along a whole set of other health benefits? In fact, in order to take advantage of most of these benefits, it is recommended to have around 200 orgasms per year. So you and your partner better get busy! Having sex will increase sleeping quality, reduce stress, burn calories, makes you smarter, and so much more. Sex even works as a medicine that helps you to reduce both physical and mental pain.
In fact, not only sex but every type of orgasm brings along the same benefits. This means that the same benefits can be enjoyed through solo masturbation, giving everybody a reason to masturbate more! So, if you don’t have a partner, don’t worry. Simply get your hands on one of the latest sex toys and you’ll be all set. The next time you’re having the flu, forget about medicine or visiting a doctor. Grab your partner or your toy, and you’ll be back to normal in no time!
