Research by a team of psychologists from George Mason University show that sex one day will cause a greater sense of meaning in life and a more positive mood the next day.
152 college students (including 116 women) were examined with the focus on sex frequency and quality with moods and overall well-being.
63% were in monogamous relationships.
They were asked to keep nightly diaries in which the scribbled the meaning of life and all that. Like does your life feel better and all that mess.
Research showed that to have sex increase a sense of well-being the participants had to be in more intimate relationships. So it wasn’t just sex but that there was romance in it.
An excuse for having sex if you needed one but reality is that the data is subjective.
Still, get laid.
