Sex To Get Better – how sex can make you feel better when you are ill

This article is about how sex can make you feel better when you are ill. I found this a rather apt article to write due to the fact that, as I am ill, it seemed appropriate. If were not for a little fun earlier I would probably not be up to writing this.

So, sex to make you feel better. It is not as absurd as it sounds. First of all, ‘it will take your mind off it,’ is a very appropriate phrase. One thing that makes you feel worse is dwelling on the fact that you are feeling worse, which then multiplies the problem and so forth. Having sex really does get your mind off it. You can be so focused on what you are doing that, for a brief time, you can almost forget that you are feeling unwell.

This isn’t the only reason however, there is a scientific basis as well. Having sex means you are working muscles that would usually be in stasis as you just lay around. Working the muscles gets the blood flowing, therefore making you feel less lethargic, therefore making you feel better. Also, having sex releases endorphins, the bodies best friend. This chemical can pretty much cure anything, and for about an hour or two after having sex you will feel much better than you did before, guaranteed.

A few tips though on positions. It is advisable to use positions where your other half faces away from you, this will reduce the risk of them getting a cold, also a little vitamin C wouldn’t hurt either, for them at least. Avoid oral sex obviously, last thing you want is breathing germs down there, and have a very quick wash before you start, it will also make you feel a little better.

So, while a short article, I hope it will give all you ill people, like myself, a few ideas on how to make yourself feel better. If you have something like the flu, then of course this will not work, but if it is a little cold then I say go for it. I am sure some of you have tried this, or have other sexual methods to make someone feel better, so tell us about them.

In today's world, people's eating and exercise patterns have changed, and it is often lifestyle that is the cause of many diet-related illnesses. I believe that each of us is unique – what works for one does not help another. What is more, it can even be harmful. I am interested in food psychology, which studies a person's relationship with their body and food, explains our choices and desires for specific products, the difficulty of maintaining optimal body weight, as well as the influence of various internal and external factors on appetite. I'm also an avid vintage car collector, and currently, I'm working on my 1993 W124 Mercedes. You may have stumbled upon articles I have been featured in, for example, in Cosmopolitan, Elle, Grazia, Women's Health, The Guardian, and others.
