The REAL Reason We Are SO Obsessed With Sex

Buzz, Love

Is it just about the orgasm?

Sure, there are a lot of reasons to have sex. Some of these reasons may stem from romantic feelings you have for someone, you might want to get closer to your significant other, or maybe you're just looking for a way to release some tension.

Trust me, we've all been in that situation when sex is the ultimate stress-reliever.

But is the physical, pleasurable sensation the only reason most people enjoy sex? Could there really be more to it than just the release?

It may sound questionable, but there is something to be said for making love or having romantic sex. Instead of primal sex and an orgasm being the end of your fun, being intimate with your significant other and taking it slow can be just as satisfying.

Sex Expert Lou Paget is joined by YourTango Experts Marty KleinStephanie BuehlerLori Limacher and Dawn Michael to discuss why reaching orgasm usually isn't the only goal in mind when being intimate.

When thinking about the intimacy behind the act, it's possible that one of the reasons is the emotional connection forged between you and your partner — or even the tease and the build up to the orgasm itself.

This is why foreplay is so important. Not only does it make the actual orgasm ten times better, but it also helps you connect with your partner on a deeper level.

Sex can be considered a way to get to know someone without words, but getting cozy with your significant other can be an even better technique to making the sex better, as well as having a more enjoyable orgasm.
