Did you know? Sex helps a good night’s sleep

Good quality sleep is well-known for its importance to our health and wellbeing. On average, we sleep 6 hours 40 minutes which is 1 hour 20 minutes less than the 8 hours usually recommended. Added together, we spend 3 weeks a year more wide awake than we should.

According to a survey, one in six British doctors say that sex before bedtime has a positive impact on the quality of sleep, particularly if you’ve had an orgasm. Human body after orgasm enters the recovery phase – refractory period.  The length of the refractory period can vary from minutes to days depending on the individual. During this time, the body produces the chemicals oxytocin, prolactin, gamma amino butyric acid and others that increase feeling of satisfaction and facilitate sleep.
