Let’s check the reasons, and then you can decide for yourself.
1. Defining Sex
For Men, sex is simpler and straightforward. That’s the way they show their loving, tender, vulnerable side, unlike Women’s desire which is more contextual, more emotional, and extremely sensitive.
Sex is an activity that stimulates positive feelings in both men and women and has splendid biological and psychological benefits. It helps in showing affection and appreciation towards each other and makes the couple feel more attracted to each other.
Women have chemicals that tell their brains to have a particular reaction to sex, such as attachment. A lot of women find that after having sex, they feel a certain amount of attachment to the other person.
This regardless of their intentions happens because an area of the brain which gets triggered during and after climax sends out chemicals that then trigger an emotional response.
A gentle touch, romantic setting, porn(steamy scenes in movies), turn on men and escalates their sex drive while for most women steamy sexy scene of a movie is enough – and they are ready to go. Even talking about sex or just the act of being naked is good enough to turn on either gender.
Playing out fantasies and fetishes is one way of increasing sexual desires, and this has shown to improve relations between couples. Sex is an amazing way of expressing love, where you do it, and how you do it, it just makes it more fun.

Oxytocin, also known as love hormone is released during orgasm, which also helps in improving sleep. Men and Women both enjoy elevated moods after sex, this not only improves their health but also increase their concentration.
Sex makes a person’s body release its natural chemicals that help in easing out stress and improve pleasure, self-esteem, and make the person feel calmer.
Research also shows that those who have sex respond better when they are subjected to stressful situations like workload and public speaking.
Researchers state that lazy people do not enjoy sex as much as active people do. Both Men and Women should take out time to keep them fit and active. The more sex a person has more likely will they want to keep doing it.
There is a mental connection as well as a physical one. It was noticed that men who had sex regularly were 45 percent less likely to develop heart-related problems than those people who did it only once a month or less.
Regular sex helps to improve blood flow, vaginal lubrication, and elasticity which makes sexual activity more fun. Also, a healthy diet is recommended, it can do wonders for your energy and your hormone balance.
