Sex and Quality of Life
Intimacy and partaking in sexual activity whether that be kissing, cuddling or intercourse are important elements in life. Sexuality is a key function of human beings. The emotional, physical, psychological, and social aspects of sexual activity pervade into the many parts of our lives. Thus, it is a leading aspect we look to when measuring our sex and quality of life.
A study conducted in 2014 by the International Journal of Endocrinology found a strict relationship between sexual life and the global quality of life. In addition, “poor physical and emotional quality of life was associated with a higher prevalence of sexual dysfunction in both genders.” The study explained the damaging cycle that this can bestow: impaired sexual function connecting to a diminished quality of life.
