I receive quite a few questions. Most of them actually are about fitness and nutrition, but, in how they apply to or influence or affect relationships. Seems most people care a lot about looks. I agree and am of that category.
Looks aren't everything, but to keep your sex life smoking hot, mates need to keep their own selves smoking hot -- and that refers to both (or all) of the participants in the relationship. For the record - I believe in monogamy.
There is more to a long lasting steamy relationship than looks, of course, but I really believe all the other stuff is kinda disappointing if your mate / spouse doesn't still turn you on in a big way sexually.
Oddly enough, my belief is the key to dynamite sex is being in love. Many people aren't in love with their mate, and it often doesn't take too many months or years.
The way it feels to fall in love is as close as you can get to a never ending orgasm. How disappointing when it goes away. No wonder so many people look for new mates.
Perhaps the most euphoric experience in life is falling in love. How much would you pay to be able to feel that way about your mate / spouse forever? There is no right or wrong answer, just think about it.
I am, by the way, a believer in getting out as soon as you fall out of love. It is, I believe, that catastrophic to your health and well being to remain with a mate with whom you are no longer in love.
I mentioned the other about my wife and I staying in separate hotel rooms so we can have privacy during the day, and even some times at night. We keep a similar thing going at home.
All I can say about that is this: It works for us.
The following items are worthwhile thoughts about keeping things hot between couples. They are intentionally kept short and thought-provoking, and give you an opp to learn more if you so desire. They very much have to do with fitness and its ties to good sex.
So here goes
Note the percentages in the first two items. I believe respondents fudge on both issues because it is both personal and humiliating to admit you are fat and unhappy, and that your sex life is not always exciting. I think it's called "settling."
- Eighty-three percent of people who are unhappy with their sex life also say they are too heavy. Read more
- Thirty-three percent of women rate their sex life as consistently exciting. (33 percent? How pathetic is that?) Read more.
- Women who practiced yoga for three months reported improved desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm and satisfaction. Fitness Magazine, March 2013, page 106
- If you are active and fit you'll feel better about your body and have more energy for sex. Cindy Meston, Ph.D., Director of Sexual Pathology Laboratory, University of Texas.
And for good measure
Diets in Review noted in an article the following benefits of exercise and diet as they relate to improved sex.
- Increased stamina
- Increased flexibility and coordination
- Improved confidence and a better understanding of your own body
- Increased sex-drive
Like I said, just give it some thought. If taking care of yourself can make your sex life (life in general) better for you and your mate, and bring back the feeling of being in love, isn't it worth it?
