Laughter can boost your sex drive
Turning madhatter's a must
With the kind of daily strain we all suffer from, what could be better than a live session of laughter challenge between the sheets? Going giggly by living out fun fetishes and fuelling wild fantasies releases a happy hormone in the body called oxytocin that further makes you all cuddly and lovey-dovey, setting the ideal mood for effective foreplay. The quirkier and wackier, the better.
Amusement filled ardour also helps you and your partner loosen up, let go of bodily and mental inhibitions and act in a freer, friendlier manner. Witty wisecracks and dumb deeds of perversion often prove to be a much sexier turn-on than the done to death candle-lighting and seductive song-play rituals. Most importantly, moments of mindless merriment help dissolve performance pressure, which otherwise poses the biggest threat to great passion play.
The close up effect
No, funning things up doesn't have to mean flashing your pearlies all the time; what we want to drill in is the fact that laughter is indeed the shortest distance between two people, especially when they're in love.
"It is important to lighten up things and indulge in funny nothings like tickling, teasing and playing hard to get in order to open up and feel greater intimacy," asserts sex and marriage therapist Dr Vinod Chebbi, because "both laughter and sex complement each other in giving the highest pleasures one can ever feel!"
