Have More

December 4, 2010

in the generous life

One way to increase your sex drive is just to be intentional about sex and have more of it.  The more you have, the more you are likely to want it.

I don’t think there is a clear understanding of the science of why, but studies do bear this out.  I would guess that a part of the reason is that you are creating a habit.  A habit once made tends to carry itself along (yes, habits are a little tough to create, but the benefit outweighs the work). I think also that more sex tends to build greater intimacy with your husband (both physically and emotionally, a plus that will bring you back for more).  And, from a physical standpoint, more frequent sex just tends to make it easier to be sexual and orgasm. Basically, sexual activity makes the sexual bits work better and easier (just like any other part of your body, using it builds, ignoring it lets it run down). (Other nice benefits – more sex results in reduced stress, better sleep, benefit to the immune system, and helps regulate your hormonal/menstrual cycle.)

Not sure if I’m just strange, but I often feel like getting my period is such an inconvenience-it interrupts my ability to have penetrable intercourse for up to 6 days!! So not fun for me:-((( So, I’m wondering if it’s ridiculous for me to purposefully not pretty myself up during these days just to avoid disappointment both ways?
