While it’s believed that good sex and orgasms go hand in hand, a mind-blowing orgasm or the sexual frequency in your relationship doesn’t define if you will end up with a healthy sex life. Remember there is more to a healthy sex life than just sex—cuddling, holding hands, kissing, hugging and intimacy form an equally important role of spicing up your sex life.

Here are some common misconceptions that you should stop to believe to help you appreciate, enjoy and enhance your sex life:

1. The act itself must be spontaneous
You want to schedule everything possible given the pace at which we live life today, including sex. In fact, if you are scheduling it, it shows your commitment towards it. Sometimes spontaneous sessions can even lead to a long dry spell. Fixing a time where you can do it without exhaustion and without worrying about your daily responsibilities can prove fruitful, just like the first date which you anticipated eagerly.

2. The best sex is slow and long
Waiting for the right moment sometimes may delay having sex far longer than you might prefer. The solution to this is, start embracing quickies. Sex can serve as a snack, can be finished quickly and can boost your energy and put you back in the mood. To make this more exciting, come out of your bedroom, and try new places at home.

3. You both are supposed to be in a mood
According to research, 15 per cent of the times both the partners together are not in a mood to have sex, which is completely okay. The reasons behind this can be plentiful and legitimate too. However, it is okay to sometimes give in to your partner’s demand and also okay to not. Don’t worry though, this does not make your sex life unhealthy. Having said that, if both of you are hardly ever in the mood, you must see a therapist.

4. You need to be having sex at least three times in a week
Most happy couples don’t get caught up in the frequency game. Though having it frequently does nourish your relationship, at the end of the day what matters is your satisfaction levels according to the sexual frequency that’s right for the both of you.

5. The number of times you have sex is subjective, there is no fixed number as such.
The frequency of sex does not matter until you and your partner are satisfied with it. Having sex once a week is also optimal for being happy, says a research published in the Journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science. Though having sex multiple times, a week leads to better well being and sense of satisfaction in a relationship, having sex a couple of times in a week doesn’t make couples happier than it does to couples who have it for once a week.

6. No, makeup sex isn’t really the best way to apologize
Although break up sex seems to take the mantle of being the best solution to all relationship woes up until now a recent study claims that on the contrary, it’s actually a pretty bad idea. A study conducted by the researchers at Bucknell University claim that passionate fiery sex after a bad altercation will not do much to resolve the turbulence in your relationship. Communicating with your partner, apologizing, consoling and showing genuine emotional response is the ideal way of making up.

7. Energy drinks don’t give you energy, they reduce your overall stamina
These bottled up potions of liquid give you instant energy due to the caffeine and sugar they are loaded with, but they do just the opposite to your sexual stamina. Once the caffeine and sugar burn off in your system they leave you with lesser energy than you had before. Studies also suggest that it lowers the level of the hormone serotonin is what truly that impacts your mood and even your stamina.
