Intimate Sex Just Once A Week Makes Couples Happy, Study
More sex does not necessarily make you happier, according to a new research by the University of Toronto-Mississauga. Among the participants, it was found that the happiest were those who who made love just once a week, reports The Telegraph.
This study was built up based on information compiled from 30,000 Americans for more than 30 years.
It is not sex, then, that builds up the links between couples, but the quality of the relatioinship and their intimacy, says Dr. Amy Muise, a sexuality and relationship researcher at the University of Toronto, according to The Independent.
"Our findings suggest that it's important to maintain an intimate connection with your partner, but you don't need to have sex every day as long as you're maintaining that connection," she said.
In fact, you can factor the money part of it too! Even those who have high incomes but "unsatisfactory sex" were discovered to be unhappier than others whose income was low but who experience "regular, quality sex" with partners.
"People often think that more money and more sex equal more happiness, but this is only true up to a point," Dr. Muise added.
Hence, if you were told that more sex leads to more happiness, then forget it as a myth or old wives' tales. It is the quality of your intimacy with your partner that paves the way for happiness.
