National Sex Day on June 9 is dedicated to the joys of having sexual relations, engaging in pleasurable activities, and exploring each other’s bodies.
Many people take this day to experiment in their sexual lives and talk about living a healthy sexual life.
The origins of the holiday are unknown, but it is celebrated on June 9 because, numerically, the date is 6/9 — that infamous sex position.
The word ‘coitus’ originally comes from the Latin word ‘coire’, meaning ‘to go together.’
It also referred to planetary alignment and magnetic force, before its meaning evolved, in 1885, into how it is used today in the sexual sense.
There is a lot more to it than just getting physical — it’s about connecting with someone and creating and enjoying this otherworldly experience.
Through physical connection, the emotional bond between two people is also strengthened.
From a purely scientific perspective, the purpose of sex is mainly for reproduction and maintaining a healthy body.
There are many health benefits of sex, including lower blood pressure levels and a form of stress release.
People also have sex for many reasons – pleasure, stress relief, curiosity, attraction, affection, commitment, love, or to make a baby.
There is a stigma surrounding celebrating sexual acts and mostly all other things related to it.
However, we like to believe that sex is good and beneficial for your physical, mental, and emotional health – that is if you practice safe sex and if you have consent from your partner.
