If you've ever been through a sexual dry spell or are currently in the midst of one now, you may be asking yourself a few questions. Will my vagina shrivel up and die? Is there a reason I'm sleeping less and dreaming more? And most importantly, will I ever get laid again? We've got answers! Except for that last one. That's on you. Here is what goes down when you stop having sex:
Researchers at Pennsylvania's Wilkes University found that people who have sex on the reg have a higher concentration of antibodies than those who do not. Turns out sex boosts your immune system, whereas lack of it weakens it. Physiologically, doctors believe sexual activity causes a woman's body to promote immunity in order to help conceive successfully.
Contrary to popular belief, lack of sex does not make a woman "tighter" nor is it possible for her to re-grow a hymen and become a virgin again. However, a drop in lubrication can occur after a long dry spell. Don't worry, though. Your body is smart and will remember how to do what it needs to do.
