Many of us have exercise routines, healthy eating habits, and some even take time for relaxing meditation practices to maintain and strengthen our physical and mental health. But concerning sexual health, many don’t have an understanding of ways to safeguard or improve it.
Because sexual health issues are rather common, It’s important to make the connection to sexual health and overall mental and physical health. Sexual health issues can disrupt one’s overall health, both for monogamous couples and swinger couples. Let’s cover some of the links between having a satisfying sex life and well-being.
Exploring the Relationship Between Sexual and Mental Health Factors
Trust, intimacy and emotional support can boost mental health in satisfying relationships. Conversely, unhealthy or unsatisfactory relationships can result in depression, anxiety and low self-esteem that negatively impact mental health. Some cultures and societal norms can also affect both mental and sexual wellness, as they can lead to feelings of shame, guilt or anxiety.
These factors make it challenging to enjoy sex with your partner and almost impossible to participate in the swinger lifestyle. After all, you need to be 100% in mind, body and spirit to indulge in activities like swinging, so don’t think it will solve all of your sexually health issues. Mental health support may be useful to get past these barriers.
Feelings of dissatisfaction and inadequacy can result from having a negative self-image. A negative body image and low self-esteem can also be caused by a number of factors, including the status of the relationship, previous experiences or some form of sexual trauma. Even if your relationship was basically problem-free and going on strongly, issues between lifestyle couples can arise due to the frustration and disconnection that can result from either poor sexual physical or mental health.
How to Boost Mental Well-being
To improve overall mental wellness concerning sex and your sexuality, it’s wise to seek treatment from a professional counselor who can help you address them. If you are thinking about entering the swingers lifestyle to increase pleasure for yourself, your partner or both of you as a couple, be aware of the potential risk connected with specific activities. This lets you make an informed choice that can ease emotional anxiety. Along with counseling, getting out of your safe zone can improve mental health.
