Do You NEED Sex?

Fundamentally, I mean. Does the human body require it? Do You NEED sex? Do we need it, probably not, but not many of us would live without it. Sex is a natural part of development. Our bodies experience real chemical reactions from the onset of arousal, until climax. Sex gives us instant access to a lot of the feel good chemicals stored in our bodies. Those chemical responses make up most of our everyday behaviors.

Listed below are a few chemicals your body releases during sexual activity, and how those chemicals are beneficial to your overall health.

  • Helps modulate erection and ejaculation.
  • Responsible for the pleasurable feeling in sex.
  • Helps regulate your daily body clock.
