“Not tonight, Josephine” even the famous conqueror Napoleon Bonaparte can decline the carnal needs from the Empress Josephine because of stress… well I’m not sure about that but basically most couple compromise their sex- life because of too much pressure. If only I’d get a penny for every man and woman who complains of having less and less sex, I’d be a very rich woman by now.

One of the main reasons why there is a decline in a couple’s sex life, especially for long term lovers is the dominant presence of anxiety, distress, pressure coupled with over familiarity and too many obligation. Some couples may be unaware with the fact that sex plays an important role in the relationship; it keeps you closer and more intimate.

Believe me, a sexless union will eventually takes its toll. The best way to prevent this from happening is to re-think your views about it. Never think that sex is an additional burden or “obligation” to be done on the contrary it can be a perfect tool to relieve stress.

Yes, it has been proven that it is a perfect way to relieve stress. First and foremost, a good copulation equates good mood. So, if you want your husband or you to be always grinning from ear to ear try to get some great dose of coitus every night. And add some color into it, don’t just wham it then snore yourself to sleep.

Give time for foreplays. If both of you are tired and exhausted from all the days work, rub some massage oil with each other and take turns giving a very sensual massage. A sensual massage is always one of the best foreplay there is and of course a perfect way to relieve stress.

Here are some more reasons why intercourse is an excellent way to relieve stress. It includes deep breathing. Deep, relaxed breathing relaxes stressed- out body and oxygenates the blood. Aside from deep breathing, the sense of touch soothes every anxiety and worry, making you feel comforted and supported. And scientifically speaking, during copulation, your body releases endorphins, the hormone responsible for making you feel good all over.

The physical work out involved during intercourse is also a certain way to relieve stress but don’t over do the physical activity or you’ll suffer from over fatigue. How to relieve stress using sex is the most effective way to bring back the spark to your relationship. So, instead of using other alternatives to relieve stress why not use sex with your one and only instead, it’s good for you.
