Stress Relief

Posted by observant on September 06, 2003 at 05:05:25:

I made an observation today, that after having sex, it is SUCH an almighty stress reliever, and an instant pick-me-up. I was feeling abit blah, lacking in energy,but after I had sex/orgasm, I felt 100 times better. Very contented. Almost like a new person.
It was like all my worries for the day suddenly vanished into thin air. Like it was so silly to be worrying about ANYTHING at all. Hours after having sex and here I am, feeling very calm, relaxed, introspective etc, unlike my mood earlier.
I was curious though to find out exactly what causes this. Is this aftereffect caused from endorphins (feelgood hormones) being released from the brain, and how long does this euphoria normally last? Its a great natural drug, and amazing for stress relief!

Except of course if you get pregnant. Bet you would not feel to calm then.

Do you not get any? Thats sad, because I am sure if you did, you wouldnt be so worried about how calm I am. Thanks for your concern though. Its touching.

I get the RDA. What I don't get is stress from worrying my partners about whether or not I'll get them pregnant, or them worrying about whether they're pregnant.

Maybe Non-Mom got you rattled.

Thanks for your concern though. It too is touching!

Normal people don't make public announcements anytime they have good sex. It's called having class.

Why so touchy? All he said was pregnancy wouldn't be a calm thing. You had to get nasty and ask if he's getting any. That's not cool.

All the guy said is THAT, SEX IS GOOD STRESS RELIEF.....and there are alot of things talked about on this Board. The only thing that is not allowed on this board is attacking other posters, or flames.

ACTUALLY, SEX IS GOOD STRESS RELIEF. DONT YOU AGREE? I AGREE......

Walt doesn't bring up alot of things that are discussed on the BB. I've purused this board for nearly 3 years now and have seen posts about everything. Its just the way it has been. People feel totally free to bring up any subject. As long as its not attacking or flaming.....it seems to be ok.

Actually J.M. is correct.

There is only one person who consistently feels a need to share their sex life at that level of intimacy with the rest of the board.

Of course, in order for it to be class issue, you first have to have some.

Thanks, Observant.

This wonderful phenomenon has been noticed at least since Hippocrates time. In the past 20 years it has even been studied and it is already known that an orgasm stimulates stress relief brain hormones (endorphins) at a prodigious rate. The same thing seems to explain the state of euphoria that occurs during being in love without sex. Just think what must happen when one is in love and has good, orgasmic, sex! No wonder the species continues to be procreated.

As far as I am concerned, this is reason enough for making sure the female partner reaches orgasm since the endorphin release is slight with just participating in intercourse!

If I had good sex, I might be sharing it with the BB as a powerful tool for stress relief (JM). However, the nerves and arteries required died a diabetic death more than 10 years ago. I will bet that is more than any of you wanted to know :o).

Hi Walt

that is all very fascinating stuff! Thank you so much for going into detail and explaining this phenomenon. I was very stressed beforehand, but after sex/orgasm, I felt revitalized. My whole body felt different afterwards. Like a huge release had occurred in body and mind. My muscles felt different. Less bracing, I guess. Like I said,I felt renewed, and for hours and hours after. I can see how sex can be addictive! :o)

--As far as I am concerned, this is reason enough for making sure the female partner reaches orgasm since the endorphin release is slight with just participating in intercourse!--

I appreciate your saying that, as I have never experienced an orgasm during intercourse, but I have a most selfless lover who makes SURE that I do orgasm everytime. In that respect, I am very lucky to have someone who knows my body so intimately.

I do seem to have very powerful, intense orgasms, although this wasnt always the case. This has been occurring for about six - nine months or so. I kind of wonder if an injury that I sustained a while back may have triggered something to provoke such intense orgasms. Whatever it is, I am very happy, of course, about it, even if I dont fully understand it.

Walt

How did this happen from diabetes, and I take it to mean that this can also happen to women? Do you mean a lowering of orgasmic intensity from the nerves and arteries dying, and not total loss of orgasm right?

Hi, Observant.

Total loss of erection capacity. Does not seem to affect women in this area. Diabetic impotence has been known to be a fixture of the problem forever.
