Breakups, work, travel, work-related travel: There are a lot of reasons your §ëx life may be stalled. And surprisingly, your dry spell in the sack can affect more than the number of times you wash your sheets.
HERE ARE FIVE THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU GO ON A §ËXY-TIME HIATUS:
1. YOU’LL FEEL MORE ANXIOUS
Fact: §ëx helps people blow off steam. Scottish researchers found that people who abstained from §ëx struggled to cope with stressful situations like public speaking—more than those who had intercourse at least once over a two-week period.
Weird, right? Here’s how it works: During §ëx, the brain releases feel-good chemicals, such as endorphins and oxytocin, which help you feel more at ease. Try to make up for that relaxing roll in the hay by rolling out your yoga mat.
