When was the last time you got some?

Sex is incredibly important to a good sense of well being.

No we’re not talking about the random hookup with the hottie from the bar this past weekend (although that can be fun too – empty, but fun). We’re talking about sex inside of a relationship.

Stress, busy work schedules, exhaustion, and tending to the kiddies have drained the sex out of our relationships. Intimacy is the glue that holds us together and without sex, it isn’t going to be easy.


Sex is life’s great tonic. It reduces stress, makes us happy, strengthens our relationship, lowers blood pressure, boosts our immune system and is better than any sleep aid on the market.

Having sex once or twice a week has been linked with higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A or IgA, which can protect you from getting colds and other infections.

Thirty minutes of sex burns 85 calories or more – depending on how “enthusiastic” you are. It may not sound like much, but it adds up: 42 half-hour sessions will burn 3,570 calories, more than enough to lose a pound.

Oxytocin (the love hormone) released during sex and orgasms relieve pain, depression, lowers blood pressure, helps you sleep and puts a giant smile on your face.

We are a touch-starved society. We barely look at people anymore and that extends itself to our partners. Intimacy in all its forms have almost disappeared and the results are fly by night relationships and the highest divorce rate in history. It’s time to get back on track!

Sex should be FUN and it should be a priority in any relationship. Schedule it if necessary. A quickie in the morning is a great way to start your day! Not every session needs to be hours of tantric ecstasy. It’s connecting with your partner in a way that belongs to just you two.


Now put on some Barry White, send a sexy text to your partner and get ready to get it on!
