Sex + Relationships

Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

Since I was a little kid, I always aimed to figure out why my uncle meditated every morning. Now, as an adult, I believe I might have finally discovered the true reason: SEX. Meditation is a great way to de-stress, which is something that can definitely come in handy on a college campus, but it also can improve your sex life. Before you start saying I’m crazy, here’s why:

  • Your Body Will Feel More Rested

When you finally come home after an achingly long day of classes, your partner calls you and asks if you want to come over. As much as you may want to, you’re feeling really tired and regrettably have to tell him or her “not tonight.” However, meditation can be a solution to this recurring problem. Since your body is given rest deeper than sleep during meditation, you’ll have more energy to work with. More energy means more sex for you—a definite win.

  • Less Stress

When someone is stressed their cortisol levels tend to be higher, leading to problems like erectile dysfunction and even the prevention of female orgasms. Never fear, though, because meditation can come to the rescue again—the relaxation gained from 30 or so minutes of meditating can help decrease your cortisol levels, which in turn increases your sexual desire. If you desire is higher, your orgasm will most likely improve as a result, altogether giving you a better sexual experience.

  • Focus

Meditation allows your mind to think more cohesively and ultimately be more focused. With your mind more attentive, aware, and processing faster, you can focus more on making sure both you and your partner are having a great time in bed.

  • No More “You Complete Me”

In the end, no one person can complete you and happiness has to come from within. Relationships are places for you to enjoy fulfillment—not find missing fulfillment. The happier you are, the more enjoyable your sex life will be.

  • You’ll Be More In Tune

Mirror neurons. They are the key. They help you observe what’s going on and give you insight as to what your partner is feeling. As a result, you will be more relaxed and probably a more thoughtful, giving partner.
