Use Laughter to Improve Your Sex Life
So, while laughter is a tonic for your physical health there’s another benefit too – healthy relationships. For starters, laughter is very sexy. It can attract someone to us. A person who isn’t afraid of throwing their head back and laughing is perceived to be more open, friendly and able to express their emotions. These are very attractive traits in the opposite sex.
When you’re laughing alongside someone else, you’re forming a positive bond with that person. Shared humor has kept even the most mismatched of couples together through the tough times. Laughter is a way to strengthen your relationship and help to calm a heated situation.
When you’re laughing with your mate, it shows that you are letting go of your defenses, you’re releasing your inhibition and you’re showing that you trust your partner. It’s a spontaneous act, and when you use this when you’re making love it can work wonders for your sex life.
There’s Not So Much Difference between Sex and Laughter
Let’s get down and dirty with the facts on laughter as a sex aid – so to speak. There are lots of similarities between the process that happens in your body during sex and when you’re laughing.
Just like the orgasm, when you laugh, really laugh, your body temperature rises and you may start to blush across your arms, neck and chest.
In women, the area of the brain that is stimulated during sex is the very same area that’s affected by laughter. Maybe that’s why the most unlikely of couples survive. Even if he hasn’t been blessed with good looks, a ‘facially disadvantaged’ man can still attract a looker by cracking the funnies.
The stages of laughter correlate to the stages of sex, especially in women. When you’re laughing, your facial muscles do their own thing, you simply can’t help it. Your skin becomes more sensitive too, just like when you’re in the throes of passion. That feeling of relaxation post-sex is also similar to the feelings when you stop laughing – your body temperature drops, you’re feeling relaxed and your breathing goes back to normal.
We’ve already talked about the increased feel-good chemicals that are released when we laugh. Well, another chemical that laughter promotes is the dopamine levels in our brain. If your sex drive has taken a nose dive, the physiological reason is because you’re low on the chemical dopamine. Loved-up souls have a high level of this hormone – it increases sexual desire. After a while spent together, researchers say around six months, the increased dopamine levels drop back to their normal level. In other words, the honeymoon period is over.
So it’s a fact that when we laugh, we’re not only more relaxed but we’re also likely to ditch our hang-ups and get it on. Laughter really does increase our libido. Even better than that, we’re more likely to try out new things in the bedroom.
