Imagine, your partner and you are all set for a night of sensual intimacy and both of you are looking forward to the night; however, during the day, you fall slightly sick.

Do you think you would still have the same level of excitement and stamina to make love for a long time that night?

Most of us would say "no" because, obviously, sexual intercourse is a physical act which requires some stamina and even the mood to get into it.

When you aren't feeling well physically or even if you are slightly stressed out, it may not even be possible to get your body ready for an intercourse, no matter how much you want it.

Even if you do get into the act, you may not be able to enjoy it completely or be unable to reach a climax.

So, both your mental and physical health must be in a good state to be able to have a fulfilling sexual experience with your partner.
