Either way, releasing the energy with their significant other releases stress to the point where they can find it easier to forget or not think about how hard of a day they had. Also, couples who have intercourse regularly tend to have less stress.

You can burn about 144 calories or more per half-hour every time you do this.

Boredom: We all get bored especially in today’s society. Sex can be a major benefit when it comes to combating boredom. After being in a relationship for a while, the relationship can get a bit boring and continue to do so if that spark is no longer there. That is where sex comes in to play.
Resting: Are you having trouble resting? Need some sleep? Well sexual intercourse can be good for both waking up and going to sleep. In the morning after waking up, have sex so you can fully wake up. Then at night before it is time to go to bed you can have sex to fall asleep. Just don’t fall asleep while having sex and don’t wake up in the middle of the night to have sex especially if the next morning is supposed to start a full day.

Fun: Being in a relationship is supposed to make you feel happy. Having intercourse with the right person is not only good for your health, but it is also fun. There is no reason why you should not have fun with your partner.
The Connection: Being well connected with your partner is very important. Staying sexually active with your partner helps with the chemistry.
The Kama Sutra has been a major part of sex for a very longtime. It is an ancient Indian Hindu text that is usually considered to be a standard part of human sexual behavior which is found in the Sanskrit literature written by Vatsyayana. Some practical advice on sexual intercourse is a portion of the work sound in the Sanskrit. Kama is one of the four goals of Hindu life, it means desire and it includes sexual desire. Sutra means a thread or line that holds things together. So think of it like this, a sexual desire that can hold things together or a sexual desire in a relationship that can hold a relationship together by keeping the spark alive. The Kama Sutra is the oldest of texts that talks about sexual behavior. Historians have said that the Kama Sutra was written between 400 BCE and 200 CE. It has been proven that the ancients are smarter than today’s society; well I guess that also includes sex. The contents of the book are organized in seven parts according to the Burton and Doniger translations. The seven parts include general remarks, amorous advances/sexual union, acquiring a wife, duties and privileges of the wife, other men’s wives, about courtesans, and occult practices.
A person in their childhood should learn to make a living; youth is the time for pleasure, and as years go by one should concentrate on living virtuously and hope to escape the cycle of rebirth which was said by Vatsyayana. It really is hard to live that life in today’s society especially when society chooses to not be realistic. Many famous people have used the Kama Sutra and it has been used by many religious figures. Buddha preached a verse from the Kama Sutra. The part he preached was about the dangers that come with the search for pleasures of the senses. A lot of people in western society wrongly view the Kama Sutra as a manual for tantric sex. Kama Sutra is not a tantric sex text. Sexual practices are widely found in the Hindu Tantric, but it has nothing to do with the Kama Sutra.
Go For It
So, sex is very beneficial in a real relationship. We know that today and we should because the ancients knew that. There are many ways to spice up sex and one way is to learn from relationship advice, foods, and the Kama Sutra. So when you come home from work and want to feel better about yourself then look your partner in the eyes and make your move. Remember, when having sex it takes two, so think about your partner as well. In order for sex to work, both partners need to feel the urge. If one partner does not feel it then it is good to warm them up.
