One of the many secrets of having a happy relationship is good sex. Let's admit the fact that sex is one of the factors in a relationship. But good sex doesn't only mean indulging in the physical act itself. It also means that you have to consider health issues and concerns on both of your sexual parts.


It will not only help you enjoy sex better, but it will also make you fall in love with your partner more. Your sexual being goes hand in hand with your mental, physical, and emotional health.


If we have to talk about the science behind sex, it is just another hormone-driven bodily function. The understanding of yourself as a sexual being and your thoughts about what constitutes great and satisfying sex and your relationship with your partner contributes to your ability to have a fulfilling sex life.


Why is sexual health important? According to this article from FamilyDoctor.org, "Sexual health is a big part of life. It can affect and is affected by other aspects of health. This includes physical, mental, emotional, and social health. Being in good sexual health means you are well informed, careful, and respectful to yourself and others. It also means enjoying yourself sexually in a way you are comfortable with."


Being sexually healthy is an integral part of health, your well-being and your quality of life.


Here are some tips for you to have a healthy and happy sexual life.


1. Eat healthily.

Healthy food nourishes our body and allows us to be at our best in many situations, including, of course, sex. Having low sodium and low-fat diet will help you prevent hypertension, which can be associated with erectile dysfunction. Zinc is vital in the production of testosterone, and it is also essential for sleep, memory, and a healthy immune system. So, take supplements rich in Zinc or eat fruits and vegetables which have a high concentration of Zinc, like black raspberries, avocado, or ginseng. I also have a previous article talking about different foods that will help you increase your sex drive here.


2. Avoid smoking.

Did you know that smoking reduces your vitality? Tobacco constricts our blood vessels, and when this happens, it will be difficult for men to maintain an erection and for women a reduction in lubrication.


3. Drink alcohol in moderation.

Drinking large amounts of alcohol over a long period can damage your liver. It will also lead to an increase in estrogen production in men. For us, women, high doses of alcohol can reduce our capacity to become sexually aroused and have an orgasm.


4. Avoid Stress.

Keep anxiety and stress away. Stress can lower sexual desire and performance. Learn to manage your stress. There are a lot of things you can do to manage stress. You can try a yoga class, deep breathing, or meditation. The faster you get rid of stress, the better for your well-being and your sexual life.


5. Stay active.

Exercise regularly can have a tremendously positive effect on your hormones. I talk more about it here. Physical activity will also increase the production of your serotonin levels, which regulates your mood, improves sleep, sexual desire, and function.

6. Talk to your partner.

It is essential to feel comfortable with your partner. Talk to your partner about his preferences and tastes in love, as well as yours. Remember that you should both feel respected.


7. Be protected.

Unwanted pregnancies ad STIs can be prevented with safe sex, and that means using protection or having birth controls.


You also have to consider that it is normal for your sexual health to evolve as you age. So stay healthy, stay away from stress, and have a positive mindset. Doing so will prepare yourself for any sexual circumstances that you will encounter.


You can talk to about your sexual health to the people you trust or love. You shouldn't manage your sexual health problem on your own.


In summary, these are three biggest takeaways for you:


1. Staying healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally contributes not just to your whole being but also your sexual being.


2. Communicating properly with your partners will help you

be comfortable with each other. This will help you respect each other's boundaries and set expectations. Remember only to do things that you are comfortable with, and you can always say no.


3. Stay protected to prevent STIs and unwanted pregnancies. If you have been diagnosed with STI, tell your partner because they may be affected as well. Seek medical help. Treatment can help cure or relieve symptoms of STI.
