Many couples complain of a bad sex life. There are many factors that determine our sexual habits, stamina and overall quality of life. In a world where exists neck-to-neck competition, it is the personal life, relationships and sexual endurance that are affected the most. And you guessed it correct…’sleep’ is something that plays a very distinguishable role in deciding how will be your sex life.
A new study has found that a good night’s sleep can prove to be magical, especially in women, in rejuvenating not only your day but also your sexual relation with your partner. The researchers said that they involved only well-rested women over time in their study.
According to the researchers, the likelihood of sexual activity with your partner increases by 14 percent with each additional hour of sleep.
“If you are having problems in the bedroom, one of the things to think about is are you getting enough sleep,” said study researcher David Kalmbach, from the University of Michigan Medical School.
The researchers involved 171 women for the study. The participating women were looked the next morning of a given night when they obtained more sleep. They were found experiencing greater sexual desire the next day. On the other hand, women who were tired on any given night were found ending up being more arouse the next morning
The researchers explain sleep is very important for the genital arousal. The study showed that women with longer duration sleep on average experienced lesser number of problems with their vaginal arousal than those who obtained less or poor sleep.
According to Kalmbach, the results indicate that insufficient or poor sleep can lower the sexual desire and vaginal arousal for women.
He said that the importance of sleep on sexual desire as well as vaginal arousal has received very little attention in the previous studies in this field.
Concluding the study, Kalmbach said, “I think the take-home message should not be that more sleep is better, but that it is important to allow ourselves to obtain the sleep that our mind and body needs.”
The findings of the study were published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
