HAPPY HAPPINESS DAY

During sex, we release endorphins, known as "the happy hormones".

Sex increases happiness

Studies claim that sex is good for your health, reduces stress, reduces anxiety, promotes sleep, and increases happiness. Experts say that having sex helps release oxytocin and serotonin, the hormones of love and happiness, significantly improving mood.

 

As we proclaim people’s sexual health, especially focused on male sexual wellbeing, here are some keys to why sex increases happiness.

 

The influence of sex on our moods

Paul Thompson, professor of neurology at the University of California, Los Angeles, says that “endorphins released during sex can help treat depression and clear the mind”. The fact is that having sex produces a release of dopamine, which among its functions is that of regulating the experience of emotions.

It has also been shown to increase serotonin and make us happier. And that doesn’t just happen when having full sex, but, as experts say, “kissing initiates several mechanisms in the brain, releasing chemicals that reduce stress and increase mood”. – Dr. Arun Ghosh, a health physician at Spire Liverpool Hospital.

Oh, by the way, studies show that those who have better quality sex are happier. So, it’s the best time to learn new sexual skills and take your sex life to the next level. Because sexual health matters.
