Every living being is born with certain primal instincts that are built within their psyche to help them function and continue their progeny.
Hunger, thirst, self-preservation (survival instinct) and sexual needs are some of the most basic or primal instincts that every living animal has, including human beings.
Our primal needs have to be met, otherwise it could lead to the deterioration of our mental and physical health.
For example, if we do not provide the right kind of food to our body, then, we will not have the energy to perform daily activities and we may also suffer from malnutrition.
When we do not drink enough water, when we are thirsty, we will suffer from dehydration and it could lead to fatal consequences.
Similarly, even when we deprive our body of sexual intercourse, we may suffer from a lot of negative consequences.
Now, most humans have the urge to indulge in sexual intercourse, right from the onset of puberty till the time our life ends!
When people do not get to indulge in regular sexual intercourse, after a certain age, it could lead to a lot of mental frustration, depression, self-confidence issues, etc.
In fact, lack of a healthy sex life can also lead to certain physiological ailments like erectile dysfunction in men and frigidity in women, where a person is unable to get aroused to indulge in sexual intercourse.
So, it is clear that having a healthy sex life is very important for your overall health and well-being.

Now, most of us would know what a heart attack is, right? The mere term can scare us to quite an extent.

Some of the main causes for a heart attack are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, smoking, excessive alcohol drinking, etc.
