How to kick-start your libido when you have fallen out of the sex habit
Know the person well before you get naughty: Remember that your text may become the next forward doing the rounds in the city. Make sure that the message you send can't be used against you. It's necessary that you trust the person you are sexting. Send a message or two before you get absolutely bold.
if you thought that the only benefit of sex was, well, pleasure, here's some news for you. Making love is good for adults. And making love regularly is even better. Not only does it help you sleep well, relieve stress and burn calories, there are also several other reasons why you need to have sex more often.
Improves cardiovascular health
A recent study says that men who have sex more than twice a week, have a lesser risk of getting a heart attack, than men who had sex less than once a month.
Regular lovemaking increases the level of the immune-boosting antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA), which in turn makes your body stronger against illnesses like the common cold and fever.
Stressed out with work or family problems? Don't let it affect your performance in the bedroom. Not only will having sex improve your mood, but a study has also proven that folks, who indulge in regular bedroom
activities can handle stress better and are happier people.
If you're using a headache as an excuse to not make love, stop doing that. Have sex instead, because, when you're about to have an orgasm, the level of the hormone oxytocin increases by five times. This endorphin
actually reduces aches and pains.
When one has an orgasm, a hormone called dehydroepiandrosterone is released. This improves immunity, repairs tissue and keeps the skin healthy. Men, who have at least two orgasms a week, live longer than men who have sex just once every few weeks.
Increases blood circulation
Because your heart rate increases when you have sex, fresh blood is supplied to your organs and cells. While used blood is removed, the body also expels toxins and other materials that cause you to feel tired.
You sleep better
The sleep that you get just after you've made love will be much more relaxed. Getting a good night's sleep will make you feel alert and overall healthy.
Improves overall fitness
If you find going to the gym mundane or working out at home a task, here's another way to help you lose the flab and keep in shape. Regular sex will do wonders for your waistline. Half an hour of lovemaking burns more than 80 calories.
Don't sext when drunk: If you can't walk straight when you are drunk, how can you be trusted to sms when you are a few drinks down. You may end up regretting the message you've sent in the morning. But there's little you can do about it.
Go slow: Don't begin with an extremely raunchy text. There has to be some foreplay before you express yourself freely. If you begin with an extremely suggestive text the person on the other hand may think you are easy. Make sure you know what you are getting into.
Be careful before you hit the 'send' button: Never chat with two people at the same time when you are sexting. You don't want to send a wrong message to the wrong person, right? And though you may think that such incidents don't happen to you, why take the chance?
Have a password for you phone: If you are into sexting and save messages on your phone make sure that your phone is well protected. Change the setting and keep a password so that no one can access the information.
Never sext your colleague: Even if you have an informal environment in your office and your team cracks many adult jokes, don't take the liberty to send sexually suggestive texts to any of your team members. If he/she takes up the matter with the higher officials you may have to face major trouble.
It's a kind of hell - being stuck between longing for another body's warmth and cold feet when there's an opportunity to finally get some. For those who've fallen out of habit, sex can become a bit like rocket science. While you know the theory, you may get the jitters before the 'practical' because sex is learned with experience and practise counts.
Watching those sanitised love scenes in films and reading about the art of lovemaking can make the anxiety worse. On the other hand, presuming that it will be spontaneous and will just come to you is not the solution either. While having sex is like riding a bike or swimming and you never really forget how to do it, getting back on the bike or into the pool may take some preparation. Sexologists Dr Mahinder Watsa and Prakash Kothari share some ways that help you get over those inhibitions. They recommend you start by stimulating all five senses.
