5 reasons why we crave sex more in the summer

Sex is in the air
To begin with, there is a first, obvious correlation between warmth and intimacy.
Sure, clothes that often leave little room for imagination help to increase desire, but it is mostly a physiological issue.
High temperatures and heat alter our blood: the body produces more vitamin D and releases many endorphins. The latter are the hormones responsible for increasing sexual desire and pleasure.
2. If we have more sex drive in the summer, it’s the sun’s fault
Sunlight causes oxytocin and serotonin levels to rise, which in turn can improve your mood and make you feel more energetic and lively.
This causes your libido to skyrocket, as does your sexual energy.
In addition, longer days tend to mean more social engagements-and thus, more opportunities to flirt with new love interests.

It is (also) a matter of chemistry
We said that in summer it is easier to have free time, and to enjoy these hours in the company of friends (even those with benefits).
So not only do we have more opportunities for flirting, but the chance to be with friends and take part in social gatherings automatically makes us relax.
From a physiological point of view, experts say that in the summer months our bodies are filled with feel-good energy, that is, neurochemical feel-good substances. Which means that when we feel less stressed, we are more relaxed and positive. And this increases in human beings the desire to have sex
4. We feel more like having sex because we feel better about ourselves
Often during the summer months we try to eat healthy and play sports: both of these things give our libido a boost.
In what way? In general, exercise is one of the most effective ways to increase sexual desire.
This is confirmed by experts, who explain, Eighty percent of men and 60 percent of women who exercise two to three times a week feel sexier and rate their sex life as above average.
5. Sunshine boosts our self-esteem
You may have realized that in summer you not only feel better, but also have more self-confidence.
Certainly being able to be in the company of friends more easily, as well as beautiful tanned skin play their (fundamental) role. But the difference is made by vitamin D, which naturally increases in summer.
Because of this, people can see an improvement in chronic conditions such as headaches, fatigue, and poor sleep in the warm months. As health problems improve, self-confidence and self-esteem also increase.
