*I received a Thrill by We-Vibe. As always all opinions are my own*
Often when someone slips into a depressive state, the first thing to fall by the wayside is their libido. I know for me personally, when I am in the grips of the Black Dog, the last thing I feel like doing is getting naked and getting my freak on. Especially when I have had to deal with a 4 year old who doesn’t quite understand why Mummy doesn’t want to get out of bed today. However, having sex and reaching orgasm can in fact help to lift your mood.
According to Psychology Today being aroused and reaching climax can help mental health by releasing feel-good endorphins into the brain. These endorphins help to alleviate depression and anxiety while also providing physical benefits such as a boost to our immune system.
Insiders Health also backs this theory and boasts that an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away. While this is most likely not possible in our busy schedules, having sex that induces orgasm has also been proven to help promote healthy sleep. Orgasms lower your blood pressure, which puts the body into a state of calm and relaxed enough that it induces a perfect state for sleep. Better health channel says that the effects of sleep deprivation are similar to being intoxicated and has been linked to an increase in depression and other mental illnesses.
This is all great if you have a sexual partner, but not everyone has the time to either seek a sexual partner or maintain a relationship. That’s where the Thrill by We-Vibe comes in.
