5 Sex Benefits of Getting More Sleep

    It's not a myth that the more sleep you get, the better you feel. We have already found that sex leads to a better nights sleep. Six to seven hours of sleep a night will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready to conquer the day. Little to no sleep feels like a horrid hangover and your day will never reach its full potential. Getting sleep isn't just important for your health though. The more sleep you get, the better sex you will have. Take care of your sexual health by simply closing your eyes! GetLusty's Lora Swarts reports on the 5 sex benefits of getting more sleep.

    #1 Increased libido  

    More sleep means more energy. When we get a good nights sleep, our bodies are physically and mentally healthier. Your sex drive will sky rocket when you allow yourself six or more hours of sleep a night. Exhaustion can trigger low sex drive and desire. Anxiety, stress and worry are also linked to less desire for men and women. Women's sexual drive is a result of emotions and physical factors. Because sleep helps us regulate our emotions, it's no surprise that more sleep equals more desire. Maintain a consistent sleep schedule to increase your libido and sexual health.

    #2 Last longer 

    Do you limit your sexual encounters to quickies because of exhaustion? Well, maintaining a consistent sleep schedule and nighttime routine can lead to lasting longer. If you are too tired, or have to wake up early the next day, have sex earlier in the day so you don't have to choose between sex and sleep.

    #3 Higher testosterone 

    According to a study printed in The Journal of the American Medical Association, 15% of working adults in the U.S. get less than 5 hours of sleep each night. The study revealed a reduction in testosterone levels. The loss was comparable to aging 10 to 15 years. Since testosterone is a leading sex hormone in men, you need to keep your testosterone levels high to keep some vibrancy in your sex life. It's recommended to have 6 to 8 hours of non-interrupted sleep. If you're not falling into REM sleep during those 6 to 8 hours, then you're not getting a healthy amount of sleep.


    #4 More sexual energy

    According to the National Sleep Foundation, 26 percent of persons complain about a lackluster sex life because they are too tired. When we are tired, our sexual energy drops. So gaining a little bit of sleep each night can help curb low energy. The more rested you are, the more sexual energy you will have for foreplay and trying out new sexual positions. Who needs caffeine when more sleep is the simple cure for a more adventurous and energetic sex life?

    #5 Healthier sexual well being 
     More sleep can lead to a healthier weight, better memory, lower stress levels, curb depression, and an overall healthy body and mind. Being at a healthier weight, having the energy to workout, and feeling emotionally balanced can all lead to better sex.

    Feeling good on the inside leads to feeling better on the outside. When we are more confident in ourselves and our lives, we will want to have more sex. Don't forget to sleep well tonight and maybe schedule sex after a long night's sleep?
