Things That Happen To Your Body When You Don’t Have Sex

by Ken McBride

Since social distancing has become the new normal, it has become a bit challenging to have sex at any time or when you please – and this doesn’t apply to only those quarantining on their own.

Recent research carried out this period showed that about 44% of people have witnessed a drastic decline in their sex life and about 30% have the same issue with their romance life.

Even as many individuals are spending the quarantine period with their partners, there is still a sexual decline in their sex life in comparison to before.

However, that is relatable, because with everything going on in the world, it can be overwhelming to have an active sexual life.

But, on that same note, not having enough sex is equally not the best move. Sex is fun and should happen between you and your partner as many times as possible. Plus, not having sex means that you are missing out on the physical and mental benefits of being sexually active. And the mental benefits could prove a bit helpful as COVID-19 advances.

You should also know that a lot of things happen to your body when you do not have sex for a long time. Here are some of the surprising impacts lack of sex could be having on you.

It Can Increase Your Chances of Getting Prostate Cancer

If you’re not having sex and it progresses to the stage where you don’t even masturbate at all, then you aren’t leading a healthy life. Studies have shown that having multiple orgasms is associated with a low risk of prostate cancer. So, it’s time to get on Pornhub for the sake of your health and get active.

It Might Cause A Spike In Your Blood Pressure

Lack of sex can cause an increase in your blood pressure level, and you really shouldn’t be surprised about this. A study carried out in 2006 showed that people who were having sex regularly had lower blood pressure than those that stayed months with having a single orgasm. This can also be related to the connection between stress and sex.

The research concluded that having sex frequently can improve how your body reacts to stress or a busy schedule. This would in that same light control your blood pressure level.

Your Immune System Becomes Weaker

Orgasms are important if you want to have a strong immune system. A saliva test was carried out on people who have sex at least twice a week, and it was discovered that the samples contained immunoglobulin in high concentrations. Immunoglobulin is an antibody that protects the body from cold and other related flu. Who knew that having sex or masturbating regularly can have such an impact on preventing illness?

Your Work Performance Might Drop

The majority of dry spells come in two forms. The first part where you are always horny and are turned on by almost anything, and the second part where you are more of a couch potato and always lazy to do anything.

This can have a negative impact on your work because studies have shown that sexually satisfied men are happier when at their place of work.

When you have a healthy relationship with active sex life, it would keep the entire employees around you happy, and in the end, be a plus to your organization.

So, you can blame skipping or forgetting about the zoom call on not getting enough sex, and your boss might be nice enough to understand.

Your Rhythm Might Be Off When Next You Have Sex

The old saying that “when you don’t use something for a long while, you even forget how to use it,” can be applied when you don’t have sex for a long while.

This is true to a certain degree because men who become less sexually active in their 50s and 60s have a higher chance of developing erectile dysfunction than those who were. On an intellectual level, it’s very easy to comprehend if you think of it this way: moving all those hands and legs and your erogenous zones can get a bit tricky if you haven’t done it for a while, not to talk more of the penis, the core participant of sex. If you don’t engage in any sexual activity for months, you may find it difficult to make use of your penis when next you want to,

However, you can prevent that by ejaculating constantly, to reduce the impacts of some of these effects.
