How does your Space and your Sleep Impact your Sex?

How does your Space and your Sleep Impact your Sex?

Sleep, Space & Sex

Your bedroom should be designed for two activities only - sleep and sex. This notion may seem confronting, but truly our bedrooms have quite quickly become a place to eat, to work, to watch television, to fold laundry and to scroll mindlessly. Limiting the activities and stimulation that happen inside your bedroom may profoundly enhance your sleep and better yet, your sex.

Association

Our brain and body tend to associate location with activity. This means that the comfy habits of watching a movie in bed or tackling a few emails from the comforts of our sheets begin to disturb the quality of our sleep. And suddenly, our brains aren't associating the bedroom as a place of calm, rest or a place to ignite intimacy. These distractions, whether its technology or children all become another obstacle to achieving a deep connection with yourself and your partner. 

 

Post Orgasm

Sexual activity is inextricably linked to our sleep; after orgasm, our brain releases hormones of oxytocin, prolactin and serotonin that induce feelings of relaxation, drowsiness and happiness. Whilst simultaneously reducing hormones like cortisol, our stress hormone. The chemical reaction that floods the body post-orgasm becomes the perfect primer for a wonderful night's sleep.

Feng Shui

An ancient Chinese medicine practice Feng Shui proposes your bedroom should be kept as a minimal, calming and balanced space with little furniture. And less furniture means less opportunity for dust to settle and interfere with sleep quality.


Keeping your bedroom as a space dedicated to sleep and have sex indicates to your body that once inside the room, the body is prepared for these hormones to be released or at least invited in with more ease.
