Weber says those internal chemicals can influence the "way you think and feel: a total body, mind, and spirit connection." And when the sex is good, it makes your brain and body happy and brings them closer to the brain and body of your partner.
Sex is a powerful boost to healthy relationships
Sex is not THE most important thing in healthy relationships, but it is most definitely a very valuable asset. It is "a physical expression with mental and emotional stimulation," Weber says. Sex helps us connect with our partners. When we're with the right person, sex can even be a borderline sacred experience.
Weber says sex represents about 5% of a relationship: "The other 95% equates to love, companionship, validation, respect, loyalty, care, trust, and all the good attributed to a positive union."
