How Important is Sexual Wellness?

The Center for Women's Health at OHSU's Nicole Cirino, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry, asserts that "all women deserve to enjoy a Sexual Wellness life." 

According to studies, having sex is very good for our health. Sex stimulates several neurotransmitters that affect our brains and several other bodily organs. 

For women, having sex has several advantages:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better immune system
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Decreased depression and anxiety
  • Increased libido
  • Immediate, natural pain relief
  • Better sleep
  • Better heart health, possibly including lower risk for heart disease
  • Increased intimacy and proximity to a sexual partner
  • Overall stress drop, both physiologically and emotional 

Women, of course, have various varied sex-related behaviors, circumstances, and preferences. Fortunately, regardless of circumstance, all women can benefit from sex.

The general health and well-being of individuals, couples, and families and societies' social and economic development depend on their sexual health. When regarded positively, sexual health necessitates a positive and respectful attitude toward sexuality and romantic relationships and the ability to enjoy joyful and secure sexual experiences free from compulsion, prejudice, and violence. The following factors affect both men's and women's capacity to achieve sexual health and well-being:

  • Living in an environment that supports and validates sexual health.
  • Having access to thorough, high-quality information about sex and sexuality.
  • Understanding the risks they may encounter and their susceptibility to negative effects of unprotected sexual activity.
  • Being able to seek sexual health care.
