Meditation and Sex

By Dr Sudhakar Petkar , Sexology

Meditation has generally been associated with asceticism and monks. However, this is not an accurate presumption as meditation has been found to be almost as effective as Viagra in improving your sex life. This is because meditation reduces your stress levels by keeping a check on the cortisol level. Here is exactly how meditation helps improve your sex life…

1. Increased Energy-

Fatigue is one of the most common reasons for not having good sex. People have such strenuous jobs which take so much energy that they do not have the energy to have sex after work. However, when you meditate, you are getting rest and this rest is even deeper than sleep. The energy you get from this rest is sometimes just what you need to have a beautiful intimate session with your partner, even after a hard day’s work.

2. Decreases Stress-

As mentioned earlier, reduced stress means lower cortisol levels. Cortisol can prevent women from having an orgasm and excess adrenaline levels may cause men to have erectile dysfunction. With meditation, high adrenaline and cortisol levels can be brought under control, which ultimately ensures a wonderful time in your bedroom.

3. More Aware-

Meditation increases the power of the right hemisphere of the brain. The reason this is necessary is because the right hemisphere is needed so that you are aware of what is going on in the present. On the other hand, the left hemisphere is in charge of remembering the past and thinking about the future. The right hemisphere is needed so that you are aware of what is going on in the present. Thinking about the past or future can make you more unaware of the orgasm and you will therefore not enjoy it as much.
