Sex: Need Or Addiction?

Sex is a physiological need. That’s according to Abraham Maslow – an American psychologist. When you say a need, it simply plays a vital role for survival. You simply can’t live without it.

Like the food you eat, the water you drink, the air you breathe and the clothes you wear, you need sex to bring a different shade of color to your ordinary life. Truth is; sex isn’t only a science. It’s also an art. It’s both a science and an art, which yield physical and emotional benefits.

Sex releases endorphins. When you feel tired or burnout, there are various activities you can do to release stress. Yet, nothing compares with making love. It is a magic pill. Just by the thought that you’re making love with someone makes you feel special. Your mind tells you to relax and lose yourself.

Increase self-esteem is another benefit of having sex. A lot of therapists will agree when you’re receiving enough romance and sex, you’ll respect yourself more. You’ll learn how to love yourself, which results to feeling confident of your body.

Yet, be extra careful! Sex is a powerful human need. Once abused, it easily becomes your addiction. Sex addiction is a common problem. Three to 6% of American adults is considered sex addicts (CNN, 2008) and their behaviors are filled with denial and guilt.

So, learn how to enjoy the freedom of having sex without becoming addicted. Don’t hesitate to seek professional help if you think and feel you’re turning yourself into someone you’re not because of compulsive sex activities such as BDSM, masturbation, rape and incest.

Come to think of it, folks! Sex feels better when you do it the right way at the right time.
