Sexuality is one of the key factors in having a healthy marriage. Sex is not just about satisfying each other's libido or sexual desires. More than that, it is about effective communication and intimacy. Both partners should look forward to an entirely satisfying sex life along with the emotional connection that it entails. According to many health and marriage experts, it is normal for couples to encounter difficulties in their sexual relationship.
Some of the common problems couples may encounter are boredom, lack of intimacy, low sexual desires, and lack of passion for sex. Another cause may be the failure of one partner to perform according to the expectations of the other party. It is important to keep things in the bedroom spicy and not become complacent in relationships.
As a woman grows older, there can also be trouble with maintaining vaginal moisture which can lead to sensitivity and irritation in the vaginal area. This can make sex painful and put a wedge in the sexual and emotional connection between a man and a woman. It is important to invest in a good lubricant like Momentum Intimacy to keep things wetter longer which may greatly enhance your sex life.
Some wives claim that they often feel rejected when their husbands lack intimacy. Some of these sexual problems take a toll on the emotional and physical condition of people. There are people who gained weight and lost their self-esteem in part due to poor sexual lives. On the contrary, people who reportedly had active sex lives had become happier and closer to their partners.
But what if one of the parties involved, particularly the men, fail to perform? Specialists advise men who have difficulty in their sexual performance to check and improve their lifestyle. Health experts believe that one's lifestyle including food intake, daily work, and domestic routines, and level of physical fitness all play a role to determine a person's sexual health. They also believe that alcohol should be taken moderately since it is one of the major causes of sexual problems including impotence (erectile dysfunction) and premature ejaculation.
High blood pressure is also a major cause of erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction occurs because high blood pressure keeps the arteries that carry blood to the penis to dilate. This causes the smooth muscles in the penis to reduce its ability to relax, leading to inadequate blood flow to the penis that hinders the erection of the penis. In addition, high blood pressure in men may lead to low testosterone levels. Testosterone is the male hormone that plays a crucial role in male sexual arousal. Cigarette smoking and the consumption of fatty foods are the leading causes of high cholesterol, which leads to high blood pressure.
Health specialists advise individuals to exercise and undergo other physical activities. These activities however should be done moderately to avoid over-training. Clinical studies show that proper exercise may enable the body to produce more testosterone.
Studies show that frequent sex between married couples lowers feelings of insecurity and increases the level of commitment. The whole process deepens their physical intimacy and strengthens their bond of love. Understanding sex between married partners may lead to improved and fruitful marriages. Openness, willingness to experiment and mutual trust should be the cornerstones of a healthy, active sex life between married couples. After all, love is supposed to be fun and exciting!
