What Happens After Making Love Daily for a Week
Most couples would give an enthusiastic yes if challenged to complete seven days of lovemaking. Yet normally few couples dedicate the time or the energy to making love every day. Maybe that should change! Besides the fun factor, making love daily has many health and lifestyle benefits.
Here’s the challenge: make love every day for seven straight days. That’s it. Doesn’t sound too hard, does it?
With the busy lives we lead sometimes the excuses not to make love seem endless. Topping the list are “too tired”, “too busy”, and “don’t feel like it”. But when you look at what lovemaking actually does, those excuses turn into reasons to make love.
The cardio exercise and endorphins released during lovemaking actually result in renewed energy and reduced stress. Chemicals that increase brain function are also released, thus allowing you to think more clearly during those busy days. And if you are tempted to just stick with Netflix, remember that creative lovemaking actually always be more fun.
Determining to make love everyday for a week is a great way to kickstart healthy relationship goals. It can be easy to take our partner for granted and forget that lovemaking is often like relationship glue. It focuses us on our partner in a way that nothing else does.
It brings us back to that passionate “in love” stage of our relationship. Lovemaking releases feel good hormones that strengthen our emotional attachment to our partner. Oxytocin, the “feel-good” hormone, floods the brain during lovemaking. This little hormone is why we feel so good! Associating our partner with those feelings only grows our attachment to them, resulting in a closer and deeper relationship.
According to a recent study the frequency of love making has no relationship to how satisfied the partners feel. However, the study showed that the automatic behavior responses of couples who made love more frequently were different from those who did not. Specifically, the more often couples made love, the more solidly they connected their partner with positive feelings. So while you may not intellectually feel closer to your partner, making love every day will certainly increase your automatic feelings of love towards them.
