Walking for sex…. come on, get your mind out of there! What we are really talking about here is exercise.
How can exercise improve your sex life?
A physically fit person is more likely to have a satisfying sex life.
Men who are fit have an increased libido and more stable testosterone levels. Similarly, women are more likely to achieve orgasm due to the improved muscle tone. Physically fit men and women have better cardio fitness. all things considered, rigorous sessions are more likely and more gratifying.
Regular exercise increases blood flow.
Blood flow to the nether regions increases the ability to have sex and increases the gratifying nature of sex.
The Annals of Internal Medicine (August, 2013) states that men who exercise just 3-5 hours per week have 30% less risk of erectile dysfunction. They specifically mention running, biking and walking. Follow up studies confirm that obese men can expect similar results. Dr. Irwin Goldstein recommends a brisk two mile walk per day.
A person with a body that they feel proud of is more likely to take their clothes off.
This one is pretty basic but very, very true. Arguably, this does tend to affect women more than men. Women have been brainwashed into this concept of the ideal woman, a concept that for the most part is not real. The majority of women have not been taught that they are beautiful and wonderful as they are. Seeing skinny models modeling sexy lingerie does not help to make a woman of a normal size feel sexy. Forget it if she has a few extra pounds to lose. Unfortunately, we tend to beat ourselves up constantly. It is a terrible cycle that does not help in the bedroom. The cycle is hard to beat but it can be beat. Entering the world of exercise will help. By the same token, if we couple exercise with healthy, clean eating we really have a great formula.
Improved self esteem and confidence have a considerable effect on sex frequency and satisfaction.
When you come to a sexual encounter feeling sexy and confident you radiate confidence. This is nature’s most beautiful aphrodisiac. A sexually confident person will speak up for what they desire. They will go after what they want. They will not be stuck in their head with thoughts of how they look, how they feel and how they are performing.
Exercise helps with stress reduction and improvement of one’s mood.
A happy person is just more fun to be around. Someone who is more fun in life may also be more fun in the bedroom. Pretty simple stuff here, but there is more. Sex can improve mood, as can feeling sexy and desirable.
Hey, and by the way, going for a walk with your lover is a great way to connect outside of the bedroom before the bedroom fun even begins!
Sex is a mood enhancer. Walking is a mood enhancer. Walking for sexually improved encounters makes good, logical sense… so GET WALKING!
