How important IS sex for your physical and mental well being??

Best Answer

I’m very surprised at how many have answered that it is not that important or over-rated. Of course there is more to a stable relationship than just sex, and you don’t need to be doing it everyday (whatever suits your relationship), but without it, most relationships will fail. There are numerous health benefits for having regular sex, improves your immune system, strengthens the heart, makes you have regular and less painless periods, relieves stress, burns calories, helps you sleep better (which has further health benefits), and it boosts ones self-esteem. There is nothing better than falling into the arms of your lover exhausted after a great session of sex, a much better feeling than any sport or workout at the gym can ever offer. Mentally you feel relaxed and comfortable, all the stresses of life are forgotten, and for the next day or so you are on a natural high. The intimacy brings you closer and strengthens the trust in your relationship. Sex has to be the number one individual factor which is most important in a relationship, and many other aspects of a relationship stem from a good sex life.

One can live very happily without it. It is not the apha and omega of existence. When you are young you believe this with all your heart, but when you grow up, you realise that love is what makes the world go round, not the act itself.

So important that I suspect I may die if I can go without it for more than 10 days.

Im With my dear friend Alicia on this one, Sex is so overrated, there are by far so many more things in a relationship that count other than sex, sex is but a small cog in the wheel that the chain of life grips onto to turn the wheel, each and every cog help the relationship, where the one fails the other one fills in. Sad how a relationship based 90% on sex cash's and ends in divorce so soon

Physically it plays a very important role. Mentally it just plays a role.

They say the second best feeling one can get is sky diving so sex has got to be way up there.

On a scale of 1 to 10? When we got married, it was a big 9. Now we are so comfortable with each other and what used to be an all nighter is now a once a week - down to a 4. No more quickies, just enjoying the fact that we can have quality time without the added worry of pregnancies and kiddies knocking on the door to the bedroom.

I live very happily without it between relationships.

Physical = overall exercise and feel good hormones are released = mental!

Very, and those who say it's over-rated are obviously not getting any.

I know lots of unmarried people who're more happy than married people and I know for sure they don't do sex.. So, I'm not sure, but it's good for fitness apparently, too

Alecia, maybe that's for women. But what the doctor never tell the men: The moment the sex stops, the prostate stop function as well. At a young age for boys it does not really matters, but the older he gets (35 upwards), he need to take something for his prostate to function properly. We must never forget, the prostate is not only there for producing, it also function the urinal function as well. On this note, yes, sex is important for well being, but it does not really matters as long as other methods are being used.
