Those who engage in sex most often does so for the pleasure of it.
While married couples also do it for the fun, their ultimate goal is to procreate as we have been told in the Bible to produce.
Whether you choose to engage in sex or not, the reason will always change when one finally gets married but have you ever wondered what happens to your body when you stop having sex for a long time?
Those who often abstain from sex for personal or religious reasons are often looked down upon but in some way it goes a long way to help.
As many have come to know that having sex can have positive effects on your health, not having sex has its benefits too.
In this write-up, we will let you know the four (4) benefits of not having sex for a long time.
Some of the positive side effects of not having sex for a long time include:
1. You don’t have to worry about getting pregnant
Those who engage in sexual activities often rely on the many birth controls today to avoid getting pregnant. While it works to some extent, it is not 100% guaranteed to prevent pregnancy as long as you are having sex.
Though highly effective, the only 100% absolute, most certain way to not get pregnant is to not have sex. Unless you’re Mary in the Holy Bible. Lol.
2. You’re less likely to get a sexually transmitted infection

3. You get to know yourself better
Sometimes people have a hard time focusing on their pleasure when they’re having sex with somebody else. If you decide to be sexually active again, you can share this information with a partner to make sex even more enjoyable.
4. You can have some much-needed space
Abstaining from sex can give you time to focus on any big emotional issues you may be dealing with. Sometimes abstaining from sex is necessary after an illness or medical procedure and doing so can even help to speed up the healing process.
