When people say that sex is everywhere, they’re not lying. From the way you feel about yourself, how good you’re sleeping, to even your body image, sex and sensuality affects your life in a big way.
To give a bit of perspective on the importance of intimacy, we’ve scoured a number of sources to explain why we all should be making a little more room for lovemaking.

Before you go on a spree expecting to be walking on clouds, parcel bags in hand remember this; sex and sexual activity releases an even bigger surge of dopamine, making it a more financially sustainable choice when it comes to lifting your spirits.
But not only will some more sex save you some excess spending, a healthy sensuality can actually make you feel richer. Simply increasing the frequency of intimate encounters from once a month to once a week is shown to have the same effect on mood and overall happiness similar to receiving a raise of $50,000 a year – ka-ching!
