The seasons flow influences the human body, and one of the ways in which such influence can be traced is sexuality. Below we detail a bit the relationship between sexual desire and the summer.
The influence of summer on sexual desire
According to an article on the Cuídate Plus portal, a team from the Psychology-Sexology Institute of Mallorca indicated that summer is susceptible to sexual encounters at the rate of a hormonal change.
Specifically, the high summer temperatures stimulate increased production of oxytocin and endorphins, two hormones related to sexual desire. When these hormones increase, so does our desire for sex.
The team points out, however, that sexual desire is also influenced by other factors, and that it varies throughout our lives, so the climatic factor is not a direct cause of its variation.
Possible factors of increased sexual desire
It is possible to explain the increase in sexual desire in summer by some elements such as, for example, more hours of light. Some studies have indicated that the production of estrogens and testosterone, which are sex hormones, increases with exposure to sunlight.
It should also be noted that we wear fewer clothes in summer than at other times of the year, a trait that can make us feel more attractive, as well as that stimulates us to observe others more closely.
The summer related sexual fantasies They also play an important role, since they stimulate our sexuality and increase desire. A recurring fantasy is to have sex on the beach.
The flow of the stations is only one of the variables that influence sexual desire therefore, the changes you perceive in the enjoyment of sex do not only depend on the current season, but also on other factors.
