We can all agree sex is great. But we all go through sexual dry spells that leave us grouchy, irritated, and indifferent. A sex drought is an emotional whirlwind.
These consequences of not having sex including the (DIY) Do it yourself kind might surprise you, but they’re very real. And if you want to have an enjoyable sex life again one day, you better heed to your body’s withdrawal warnings.
Lack of coitus affect a person, apart from the enjoyment derived from shagging, it also has consequences in the body and daily life of a person. You just might reconsider this period of celibacy. Below are consequences of lack of sex for a long time;
You Lose The Desire To Do It
When you don’t do it, your body produces fewer of the hormones that make you want to. Don’t get them pumping again and your hormones could convince you to stretch this dry spell way out.
Your tolerance for pain will be worse
Sex releases the neurochemical oxytocin, which aids in pair bonding as well as pain relief. It’s basically nature’s aspirin. If you suffer from chronic pain such as a bad back or regular painful menstrual cramps, sex and orgasm can help alleviate some of those symptoms. Is your cramps been a bit more intense lately? Your dry spell might be to blame. Regular sex means more estrogen in your system to reduce the pain of PMS.
Things Loosen Up
One of the first things that happens during a long dry spell? The muscles of the vagina begin to relax, and things can loosen up down there. Just like any muscle in your body, your vagina muscles need practice relaxing and tightening. When you stop getting laid for a while, your vagina muscles can forget how to relax, causing a feeling of tightness. This can actually make sex painful after you haven’t had it for a while.
You Get More Productive
Not all of the consequences of not having sex are negative. Sexual energy has to go somewhere, and women are more likely to channel it into work.
Sex Might Be Awkward Next Time
Confidence is the key to climaxing, and you lose some of that edge when you don’t have intercourse on a regular basis.
Boner will lose its abilities
Just like with anything you do, getting strong hard-ons takes frequent execution. Relationship expert April Masini tells Medical Daily: ‘The more often you have sex, the more confident you become about having it — both your own ability, and the ability of the relationships in which you’re having the sex.’ Basically, if you don’t have frequent sex you lose some of that mojo that keeps your boners forceful, fearsome, and fantastic.
Celibacy can weaken your bladder
Sex is great for your Kegels, the muscles that help you hold in your wee. If you’re not having it, your pelvic floor muscles could weaken, leaving you with some dripping. To keep your Kegels strong, tighten and release your vagina muscles for two-minutes a day, like Samantha Jones always says. Strong Kegels won’t necessarily make your lady flower tighter, but a stronger lady flower is a better one.
Get ready to get stressed
Regular sex has been shown in numerous studies to relieve anxiety; and a 2006 study in the Biological Psychology Journal discovered that people who enjoyed regular penis-in-vag sex had better blood-pressure reactivity to stress lower baseline levels of anxiety, and a more chilled response to the things that normally might get their blood boiling.
Things Can Get Swampy
When all of those stored up secretions aren’t flushed through consistent intercourse, they start releasing themselves throughout the day.
Grouchy? Lack of sex might be to blame. Jonesing for it can make you moody. But go without it for long enough, and your bad mood will go away–along with your desire to do it altogether.
More acne and sagging
Progesterone that is produced during sex removes acne on the face, in addition, during sexual activity, the breasts and thighs are strengthened, leaving aside the sagging of these and other parts of the body due to exercise.
