The silver lining of divorce: A better sex life

While divorce is a very painful time in a person's life, no matter how old you are when it happens, the truth is that marriages breaking up is an increasingly common part of our society. The circumstances surrounding each individual divorce differ – custody agreements, splitting up the assets, moving out – but, according to some psychologists, there is a silver lining that many divorced individuals experience: An improved sex life.

Sex researcher Kristen Mark of Indiana University explained to CNN that in marriages that are on the rocks for months or years on end, the couple's sex life is what suffers most dramatically. The sexual desires of a person will not be met for long periods of time, leading to feelings of isolation and being trapped. When the marriage ends and a person is allowed to explore other avenues of their personality and wants, their true self is finally able to shine, particularly in the bedroom.

Online dating, among other factors, has also contributed to new divorcees' ability to get back into the dating game. Where a divorced person might have felt awkward going out to meet people just a few years ago, they can now enjoy building a relationship with a person through the internet from the comfort of their own home. This way, the idea of spending time with a new love interest does not seem overwhelming and disorienting, especially for those who have been married for many years. This will lead to more exciting sex, argued Dr. Andy Trees, an expert in this field, in an interview with the news outlet, because sex with someone new is "exciting in ways that sex with a familiar partner is not."

If you are recently divorced and looking to improve your sex life, why not go all out and try a new arousal gel while you're at it? You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it!
