Travel, divorcements, a partner which does not cooperate … all reasons that your bedroom firework may put on the back burner. This is what happens…
1. You have more stress

Researchers in Scotland found that people who had no sex harder could cope with stressful situations than those who had sex at least once in the past two weeks. Weird, isn’t it? How it works: during sex the feel good chemicals are released into your brains, such as endorphins and oxytocin. They make you calmer. Yoga basically do the same, in case you just don’t have sex at your disposal;)

It also increases the chance that one of you is afraid that the other will look elsewhere.

A study by the Archives of Sexueal Behavior shows that women are sipper when they are longer without sex. Nevertheless, it does not necessarily have to be the lack of sex, the researchers found that women who had sex with condom experienced the same feeling. This might be due to the other ingredients in semen, such as melatonin, serotonin and oxytocin. These substances have a mood-enhancing effect.
