The channel Vbox7 published a list of 17 things that happen to our body after we stop having sex.

Here's who they are:

Decreased vaginal lubrication

This is not a direct consequence of not having sex, but abstinence leads to higher anxiety, which can frighten your body and therefore your genital organ will not be moistened enough.


Vaginal dryness can make sex quite painful unfortunately.

Erectile Dysfunction

There seems to be a link between the lack of sexual contact and erectile dysfunction, although scientists are still not clear what exactly it is.

Your immune system weakens

Regular sex - once or twice a week - has been shown to help build antibodies.

Decreased Libido

In women, sex improves vaginal lubrication, blood flow and elasticity, making sex better and increasing libido.

Changes in bladder control

Sex helps women strengthen their pelvic floor muscles, which helps prevent incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine).

Affects blood pressure

Researchers link sex with lowering blood pressure.

One study found that intercourse (but not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure.

Disappointment and self-doubt

If abstinence from sex is not of your own choosing, you may feel less confident in other aspects of your life.

Wet dreams

Your body will try to remind you that it wants sex.

Increased risk of heart attack

A good sex life is good for the heart.

One study found that men who had sex at least twice a week were twice as likely to die from heart problems.

Increased risk of prostate cancer

Men who ejaculate frequently - at least 21 times a month - are less likely to develop prostate cancer.

Increased stress

Having a strong physical connection with your partner soothes stress and anxiety.

Also, sex releases endorphins, which regulate hormones.

Less sex = more stress.
