5 things that happen to your body when you do not have sex for a while
There are physical consequences of going a while without sex, but many of them are basically negatively focused, which means you’re simply not getting the health benefits sex usually brings. Which sucks, I know, but you are not going to freeze up, grow a new hymen, be incapable of ever going near another person’s sexual organs again, or drop dead unexpectedly of sexual frustration.
According to a study done in 2016, millennial are having less sex that any generation since the 1920s. They clearly missing out on the fun as they should be having as much of it as they can. They also missing out on the many well documented health benefits of having sex.
Of course for many reasons it’s not always possible for various reasons, maybe your partner is out of town or just in between relationships.
So what happens to your body when you don’t have sex for a long time? Here are the 7 of the most surprising side’s effects.

Your rhythm gets thrown off the next time you have sex
A study done in 2008 by the American Journal of Medicine concluded that men in their 50s, 60s and 70s who were not sexually active were more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction.
Even if you do not have a partner, the research suggests ejaculating regularly can help alleviate some of the effects.
You get more stressed out
When going for a while without having sex you get more stressed out. There is a scientific reasin for that. Neuroscientist Dr Debra W Soh said in an interview with Men’s Health that during orgasm “endorphins are released that can help to improve your mood. So, if you tend to use sex as a way of coping with stress, a dry spell can be doubly frustrating.” Your immune system gets weaker.
Blood pressure can spike
A great night of lovemaking can make literally everything else in the world feel better. Even if your under pressure from deadlines all seems to be manageable.
Science says that’s not a coincidence. In fact, a 2006 study in the medical journal Biological Psychology found that people who were having regular sex had lower levels of blood pressure than those who weren’t.
Your work performance might slip
Most dry spells have two parts: the part where you’re insanely horny and turned on by even a slightly curvaceous frying pain; and the part where you’re down in the dumps and can’t even be motivated to get off the couch.
Apparently, that can even spill over into your employment satisfaction. An Oregon State University study found that couples with an active sex life were much happier at work.
“Maintaining a healthy relationship that includes a healthy sex life will help employees stay happy and engaged in their work, which benefits the employees and the organisations they work for,” says Keith Leavitt, an associate professor at the college.
There you go, guys: feel free to blame missing that meeting on not getting laid. I’m sure your boss will understand.
