What Happens to Your Body if You NEVER Have Sex

Sex is everywhere. It’s in the news, in the YouTube videosnyou watch, and practically every television show or movie you’ve ever seen. But what happens if you never have sex? Would you explode? Would you die? It is important to remember that everyonenis unique, and everyone’s body will react in different ways, but let’s look at somencommon physical and mental side effects of never having sex. First we will look at the physical ramificationsnto the body if someone never has sex. There are a lot of misconceptions about whatnwill happen to you body from lack of sex—which we will debunk later—but the truth may beneven scarier. Men who have regular sex and ejaculate morenfrequently have a lower risk of prostate cancer. This means if you never have sex as a male,nyou are actually at a higher risk of getting prostate cancer. The reason for this is because humans evolved—likenall living things on this planet—to be reproduction machines. Whether you like sex or not, your body’snmain purpose is to reproduce, because that is how all living things evolved. The body needs to release old sperm in ordernto create newer more viable sperm. Just like with other equipment, if the malengenitalia is not used frequently there can be problems or a breakdown in the system. It is not yet clear what the precise causenof prostate cancer is, but studies suggest that men who have frequent sex or ejaculationsntend to have a lower risk. So, if a male never has sex, he should atnleast be masturbating. This will be a common theme. Some of the benefits of sex can also be obtainednfrom self release, but not all. Either way, if you are a male who never hasnsex you should consider doing regular prostate checks. For females that never have sex there arendifferent repercussions to the body. Sex strengthens the pelvic floor muscles thatnsupport the bladder. If a female never has sex they may find themselvesnwith a weak bladder. This could lead to leakage or incontinence. Sex is a physical activity, and the musclesninvolved need a workout every now and then. If you never have sex, these muscles aren’tnexercised, which leads to them becoming weaker. It turns out that if females are not strengtheningnthe muscles used during sex, it can lead to negative affects on other body systems. That being said, females can also achieventhe benefits of sex from self pleasure as well. It turns out that in humans just simulatingnthe act of sex can trick the body into providing many of the benefits associated with the act. Another negative affect women who never havensex may encounter is that the vagina may be drier than someone who is engaged in sexualnactivity. This is not necessarily a problem other thannit can become uncomfortable. So, if a female has never had sex and feelsndiscomfort in her genitalia, it may be because of lack of lubrication around the musclesnand organs. Again this problem can be solved by masturbating. At some point in their life someone who hasnnever had sex may want to engage in the activity. If this is the case, the lack of sex in previousnyears may hinder the carnal act. If someone has gone their whole life withoutnhaving sex it could take longer than expected for arousal to begin. This could happen because the body would benfeeling all new sensations, and since they would be different than anything felt before,nit could take a while for the necessary fluids to flow. This seems counter intuitive since you wouldnexpect someone’s body who has never had sex to be raring to go. However, the longer someone goes without evernhaving sex, the longer it takes for the body to prepare for the activity. Your body needs to create and dump hormonesninto the bloodstream, it then increases the blood flow to areas of the body that havennever, or very infrequently, been used. This can take a while, especially for someonenwho had never had sex before. Whether someone is male or female, never havingnintercourse can be connected to higher blood pressure. There are several studies that have shownnpeople who have regular sex tend to have lower blood pressure. Therefore, the opposite can also be true. Someone who has never had sex may have highernblood pressure than if they did have coitus. The most likely reason for this is becausenthere is a correlation between having sex and the lowering of stress hormones in thenbody. If a person never has sex those same stressnhormones will be higher. Someone who has more stress tends to havenhigher blood pressure. This is a serious health concern a celibatenperson should be aware of. They should absolutely find other ways tonlower their stress levels and blood pressure. Like we’ve said before this can be donenthrough masturbation, but there are other options as well such as meditation. Again, our bodies evolved to be sex machines,ntherefore, they expect to have a release every now and then. High blood pressure would definitely be annegative side effect of never having sex, but there is something else that sex may helpnyour body with that you weren’t even aware of. Having sex, or more specifically, having orgasmsnhas been linked to benefits to someone’s immune system. Psychologists Carl Charnetski and FrancisnBrennan Jr. conducted a study where they took saliva samples from people who frequentlynhad sex, and those who did not, and found some surprising results. In the patiens who were having sex their salivancontained higher concentrations of immunoglobulin A, which is an antibody used to fight offnthe common-cold. Therefore, there may be health benefits tonthe immune system of someone who is having sex. If this is true then someone who has nevernhad sex may find themselves getting sick more frequently than others. The reason for this boost in the immune systemnmay have more to do with the close proximity to another human during sex than the act itself. So, unfortunately, this boost to your immunensystem may not be something you can get from masturbation, since it is only a party ofnone. So it would seem that never having sex maynhave negative physical effects on the body. But what about the mental effects? Are people who never have sex at risk of havingnhigher mental health issues? Since everyone is different there is no absolutendefinitive answer, but someone who has never had sex may be at a higher risk of certainnnegative mental health issues. As we said before the act of having sex releasesncertain hormones that lower stress levels in the body. This can be achieved through masturbationnas well. But another important mental health benefitnof sex is the feeling associated with physical intimacy; something that cannot be obtainnthrough self pleasure. Someone who has never had sex before may developnwhat psychologists call skin hunger or touch starvation. This is when lack of close physical contactnresults in negative mental health issues. The intimicay during sex can not be replicatedneven if someone spends a lot of time around other people. The physical contact and sensations duringnsex are sometimes necessary. If someone has never had sex it could causentheir body to react negatively to the lack of intimacy. It would not be surprising for someone whonhas never had sex to feel isolated or insecure. This could be caused by an imbalance in hormonesnin the body due to lack of sexual contact. The change in chemical composition of thenbody from sex is not just because it feels good or pleasurable, but because it is somethingnintimate and shared between individuals. If someone who has never had sex is feelingndepressed or lonely even if they are surrounded by others, it could be because their brainnis craving intimacy. In these cases we only have evolution to blamenyet again. Our DNA is selfish and wants to be passednon to the next generation, therefore, almost all of us are programmed to want to have sex. One way our body tricks us into copulatingnis by rewarding us not just with pleasurable physical sensations, but with mental stimulationnas well. The brain of someone who has never had sexncould be starved for the intimacy of it. This in turn could cause negative side effectsnto mental health. So really, for someone who has never had sex,ntheir brain begins to rebel against them. When your brain is fighting you, it’s goingnto be a bad time. However, as mentioned before everyone is different. Some people actually don’t need to havensex at all and are still healthy and happy. This can be because of a low sex drive ornthat the person is asexual. The human brain is a magnificent thing, andncan even overcome our biological urges in some people. In others the brain may be programmed to justnnot crave sex, and for these individuals never having sex most likely comes with no side-effects. There are misconceptions based around whatnhappens to someone who has never had sex, so let’s break them down. Someone may have told you that if a femalendoesn’t have sex their vagina closes up. Not only is this untrue, but think of hownmany other complications that would cause for that person other than not being ablento have intercourse. A female who has never had sex will most likelynhave a smaller opening to the vagina than females who are more sexually active, butnthere is absolutely zero chance the vagina will completely close up. Even females who have never had sex stillnproduce sex hormones, which means that although there may be discomfort or negative side effectsnfrom not having sex, they still are able to do so at any point during their life. What it comes down to is that everyone’snbody is different. Some people may choose never to have sex andnthey can still lead a long and happy life. They might have to find other ways to mitigatensome of the negative side effects—such as lack of intimacy, but it can be done. We know masturbation can produce many of thenpositive benefits of having sex. There are some risks to never having sex suchnas a greater chance of prostate cancer in men and incontinence in women, but we livenin a time where there are medical options to combat these negative side effects. What will happen to your body if you nevernhave sex? It just depends on who you are. But for most of us we will feel discomfort—mostlynin the genitalia, and we will probably feel lonely or more stressed even if we are aroundnother people. Sex is literally in our DNA, so although itnmay not be necessary, it could be hard to avoid. Now check out “What is Persistent GenitalnArousal Disorder?
