"Making love is an art, formed by two people with deep feelings and emotions for one another," says Ana Weber, relationship expert and author of Passion Spirit Purpose. "It's a giving behavior with commitment and care." And when it happens between two people in love, it plays a major role in pair-bonding and forming healthy, strong relationships.
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.
