Hey Oz, I am just curious what the top 5 questions you get asked about sex are?

A.  Thanks for your question! The topic of sex is a vast field, encompassing everything from biology and psychology to culture and morality. It’s something that almost every adult is at least somewhat familiar with, yet there’s always more to learn.

Here are the top 5 questions people often ask about sex.

1. Is Sex Important in a Relationship?

This is a question often asked by people in relationships. The answer is not black and white; it largely depends on the individuals involved. For some couples, sex is a crucial component of their relationship, serving as a means of expressing love and intimacy. For others, emotional connection might be more important than physical intimacy. It’s key to have open and honest conversations about sex with your partner to understand each other’s needs better.

2. How Often Should Couples Have Sex?

This question doesn’t have a universal answer since sexual needs vary from person to person. “Normal” frequency of sex in a relationship depends on factors like age, health status, personal libido, and relationship dynamics. Communication with your partner about your sexual needs is paramount.

3. What are the Health Benefits of Sex?

Sex isn’t just enjoyable — it also has several health benefits. Regular sex can boost your immunity, improve cardiovascular health, reduce stress, improve sleep, and even relieve pain.

4. How Can We Improve Our Sex Life?

There are many ways to spice up your sex life. These include trying new things in bed, communicating openly about your desires, maintaining physical fitness, reducing stress levels, and seeking professional help if needed (like therapists or sexologists).

5. Is It Normal To Not Enjoy Sex?

Yes, it’s completely normal if you don’t enjoy sex — you’re not alone. Some people may have a condition called asexuality where they have little to no sexual attraction to others. Others may struggle with conditions like sexual dysfunction or discomfort during intercourse. If you’re concerned about not enjoying sex, it might be beneficial to speak with a medical professional or sexual therapist.

This just scratches the surface of questions about sex — it’s such a broad topic that people have been asking questions about for centuries! As society continues to evolve and become more open, it’s important to continue having these conversations and educating ourselves.

Q. Hey Oz. Recently I had a heart attack. Before sex was regular but now I am afraid to have sex. My doctors says it should be ok. What do you think?

A.  Hello there, I’m really sorry to hear about your recent heart attack, but I’m glad to see you’re on the road to recovery and thinking about resuming normal life activities. Your question is a very common one and quite important too.

Having a heart attack doesn’t mean the end of your sex life. Quite the contrary, it’s a part of resuming your normal life activities. However, it’s equally important to approach this issue with caution and proper medical guidance. Typically, many doctors suggest waiting about 4 to 6 weeks before having sex after a heart attack. This timeframe allows your heart to heal and regain strength.

Listen to your body during this time

Because everyone’s recovery rate is different. This is a general guideline and it can vary greatly depending on the severity of the heart attack, your overall health condition, and how well you’re recovering. Therefore, the best course of action would be to consult with your cardiologist or healthcare provider further. They know your health history and condition better than anyone else and can provide personalized advice.

If you can exercise without experiencing chest pain or breathlessness, and if you can manage physical activities that are as demanding as climbing two flights of stairs without any discomfort, you may be given the green light. When you do resume sexual activity, it’s advisable to start slowly and gradually increase intensity. If you feel any discomfort or unusual symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or excessive fatigue during sex, stop immediately and consult your healthcare provider.

There can be emotional or psychological barriers

Like fear or anxiety about triggering another heart attack during sex.

If you’re experiencing such feelings, consider seeking help from a mental health professional. Remember that patience is key here. Don’t rush things but wait until you’re physically and emotionally ready. Your health and safety come first.

I hope this helps! Wishing you a steady and speedy recovery! And remember, when in doubt, always discuss with your healthcare provider.
