Surprising Reason More Sex May Be Key to Happiness: Cuddling and Affection Increase Couples’ Wellbeing

Studies show that people who have more sex are generally happier, but until now one questioned remained: Is it the sex that makes you happier or do happier people have more sex? According to Medical Daily a new study shows that it's general exchanges of words and signs of affection following sex that directly cause increased long-term happiness and more life satisfaction.”

When it comes to frequency, studies also show that couples who had sex once a week reported the highest levels of happiness, and did not increase with more frequent sex. Also important is the fact that the association between sexual frequency and well-being is only significant for people in relationships.

Another important thing is that you’re not in a contest — if you’re happy with your sex life, there’s no need to change it just to match what statistics say. In other good news, sex is great for your overall health. It improves your immunity, contributes to heart health, lowers blood pressure and even can help with pain relief.

If you don't have sex regularly, you can still reap many similar benefits from other forms of intimate contact — like hugging and kissing. Like sex, hugging increases levels of the 'love hormone' oxytocin. This, in turn, may have beneficial effects on your heart health and more.
