Laughter is Sexy & Healthy

02 Jul 2019, by Marla Stewart in Sex Arsenal Blog

When I laugh, it’s known.  It’s known down the block, at the end of the hallway, or anywhere where I’m in vocal range.  You see, I have a very boisterous laugh.  It’s loud.  My mouth is always wide open.  People tell me that they know that I’m around because of my laugh and they often find it magnetic.  Why?  Because they can hear the joy that I’m experiencing at the time.

I love to laugh and although my laugh isn’t “cute,” it’s extremely attractive.

So when was the last time you laughed out loud and truly felt joy?

Some of us love to snicker and giggle and laugh a little laugh, and we may even do it to make someone feel good about themselves.  Some of us keep our laughter on the inside and say “that was funny,” but aura of joy is not present.

When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?  What did you find funny about it?

I know you’re probably wondering, “where in the hell is she going with this?” and I’m here to tell you that laughter is part of the art of seduction.  Not only do people love to make people laugh, we get a great amount of dopamine surges from the laughter which makes us to feel good all over.  A comedian’s drug of choice will always be laughter because that can pull them through some of the darkest times that they have.  Most people are the same way.

When I make people laugh at my workshops (if you haven’t taken a workshop, shame on you, but I’ll be having some online workshops soon), it’s one of the best feelings I get next to seeing the light bulbs pop up above their heads as they learn something new.  Let’s face it.  Laughter is sexy.  It doesn’t matter which end you are on, there’s always a benefit in experiencing laughter.

It’s even better when you have a lover whom you can laugh with.  Hearing them laugh makes them a sexier lover to you because you get to share in that experience of joy.

Similar to laughter yoga, I encourage you to think of the funniest moments for you and force yourself to laugh.  I believe this has kept me young and healthy and when thinking about my mother (who also has an amazing boisterous laugh), I’m pretty sure that keeps her healthy and young as well.  If you’re a fan of quantum physics, you’ll know that that kind of positive energy only propels you in a good direction.  And it turns out that laughter can help you bond with people.

And we all want to feel like we belong.

With that said, take the time to watch your favorite funny movie, see your local comedian, go to your local laughter yoga class, or go down the internet comedic rabbit hole.  However you get your laugh on, just remember to get it on.  This will essentially help you to get it on.

Cheers to your sexual success!
