Dry Spell: 5 Things That Happen When You Stop S.ex

Breakups. Work. Travel. Work travel - there are a lot of reasons your sex life may be stalled - and like knocking over that first domino, your dry spell in the sack can affect your health in many ways.

Here are five things that can happen when you stop having sex:

S.ex helps blow off steam
Scottish researchers found people who abstained from se.x struggled to cope with stressful situations like public speaking, compared with those who had intercourse at least once over a two-week period. 
Man Suffering from Colds and Flu 

During s.ex, the brain releases feel-good chemicals, such as endorphins and oxytocin, which help you feel more at ease, the researchers say.

Risk of prostate cancer increases 

Guys who stop having s.ex may miss out on the prostate-protecting perks of frequent trysts.

A study presented to the American Urological Association found men who got it on all the time enjoyed—along with the s.ex—a 20 percent drop in their risk for prostate cancer.

One reason? Frequent ejaculations may remove potentially harmful substances from the prostate.

Prone to flu and colds 
Unfortunately, less sex means you’ll also miss the immune-boosting benefits of a weekly roll in the hay.

Researchers at Wilkes-Barre University in Pennsylvania found people who had se.x once or twice a week enjoyed a 30 percent boost in immunoglobulin A (IgA), compared with those who had se.x seldom or never.

Insecurities 
Not having se.x takes a toll on your happiness, closeness, and relationship security, experts say.

“Going without se.x in a marriage can deliver a hit to your self-esteem, engender guilt, and decrease levels of oxytocin and other bonding hormones.” 

“It can also increase fears that one of you will look to others for your se.xual needs, which can breed a little paranoia.”

Erectile dysfunctional 
Use it or lose it: Men who have sex infrequently are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction as men who do it once a week or more, according to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine.

The study’s authors suggest that, since the pe.nis is a muscle, frequent s.ex may help preserve potency in a similar way that physical exercise helps maintain strength. - Online Sources
