Four Facts That Could Save Your Sex Life!

We love sex, and we love reading about sex almost as much as we enjoy getting down and dirty. Almost. You can’t really beat the real thing, but when you just haven’t had the chance to do all of the dirty and naughty things that you want to in bed, you have to settle for reading about it. That is why, whenever anything related to sex hits the news, it pretty much goes straight to the headlines and we will gossip about it for weeks.

Research has told us a lot about sex, and experience tells us even more, but sometimes your experience just isn’t enough to help you when you are in a sex slump. You need something else to kick-start your sex life, and that is where the research comes in. It seems that research has discovered four key sex facts that could actually help you out in the bedroom and potentially save your sex life. Yes, really. We take a look at what these four amazing sex facts could be here on the Escort Norway blog.

More sleep = more sex

If you love your bed anywhere near as much as I love mine, you’ll be over the moon to hear this first fact. It seems that spending time in your bed when you aren’t passionately fucking is actually good for you, as sleep can really help your sex life.

This one might seem obvious, but basic maths tells us that, in order to be the stud in bed that you consider yourself to be, you need to have energy. Food can give us some of the energy we need, but sleep is a much better option.

A study into brain research, conducted by the US National Institute of Health, found that insufficient sleep can leave you feeling tired and irritable, and can also make you susceptible to getting sick. However, they also found that a lack of sleep could have repercussions on your sex life if you weren’t careful. Those who did have a decent amount of sleep (between seven and nine hours) seemed to have better sex lives.

Basically, if you want to impress your partner in bed and leave them shaking in orgasm, you need a decent night’s sleep. Go on, hit that snooze button. You might need those extra ten minutes for the grand finale later tonight!

18 minutes of foreplay is essential

Okay, I am going to hold my hands up here. I don’t spend anywhere near as long on foreplay as I should. I find myself getting so worked up and turned on that I just want to jump right to sex, and usually the person I’m with doesn’t have any objections to that. I guess that some of you are guilty of this too.

It seems that so many studies suggest that we need to be spending at least half an hour warming up for sex, which is just too long. We don’t want to wait to fuck. We want to do it as soon as possible.

Well, lucky is on our side, as a study published in the Journal of Sex Research actually found what they consider to be the perfect amount of time for foreplay.

The study, which looked at 152 straight couples, found that most agreed that around 18 minutes was the “ideal duration of foreplay”, as it gave them enough time to get in the mood and all warmed up without leaving them tired for the main event. Get setting those timers!

Sex is better than food

A study recently hit the headlines when it alerted everyone to the fact that, given the choice, most men would choose sex over food. Okay, so there was another that suggested we’d all prefer our smart phones to sex, but food is a pretty important factor in our lives. We can’t really live without it.

The research, which was published in the Nature Journal, seems to suggest that, when men have the choice between sex or finding food, they would actually override their desire for food in order to have sex. It’s flattering, in a way, that a man might choose sex with you over that last slice of pizza.

However, it doesn’t just end there. As that famous advert suggests, you aren’t you when you’re hungry… and when we’re hungry, we get angry. Now it is being called “hangry”, but when we are hungry we get very irritable.

Sex can actually help that, by giving us a healthy and fun way to let off steam, and afterwards, when that desire for some food kicks in, you can go and get something great to eat together and think of all the steamy fun you had in the bedroom.

Enjoyment isn’t limited by your age

A lot of young people seem to be under the impression that they invented sex, and this, combined with the disgust a lot of people feel at the idea of having sex when you’re over 30, has created a mentality that you can’t have or enjoy sex as much when you’re older as you could in your youth.

Yes, it is a completely ridiculous idea, especially when so many studies and researchers have proven otherwise. Sex is not just for the young, and in fact, older people seem to be having better sex, as they are more aware of what their bodies want and need in the heat of the moment.

The study, conducted by the University of Pittsburgh, found that nearly 60% of women over the age of 60 were actually sexually active and reported that they were very happy with their sex lives, thank you very much. Maybe that is why so many people choose to date mature escorts?

Hopefully these four sex facts can help give you the kick you needed to boost your sex drive. If not, we have plenty of other great tips for you on the Escort Norway blog, and you might find amazing advice on the Escort Norway forum too!
