Hürriyet photoThe Family and Social Policies Ministry has released a booklet under the title “Marriage and Health,” offering guidelines to couples on a series of topics, including sex.
Several aspects of the sex life of married couples are studied in detail in the booklet, with sections devoted to defining and describing foreplay, performance, orgasms and possible health troubles. Couples are warned against rushing through foreplay, and advised to listen carefully to each other in order to have a healthier sex life.
The booklet aims to help couples achieve a healthier sex life, while stating that the benefits that would come from it include a better immune system, stronger bone structure and fitness.
Couples who have a steady sex life experience fewer headaches and age slower, and the women don’t suffer from heavy menstrual cramps, the booklet says.
The booklet advises couples to have mutual respect for one another and avoid insults and slurs, and to encourage the sharing of sexual preferences and desires. Monotony in sex should also be avoided by couples, according to the ministry, and if needed, couples should forget about past experiences and focus on future chances.
While couples are encouraged to show patience toward each other, the booklet adds that each side should be careful about personal hygiene and avoid unpleasant smells, and instead try to smell as good as possible.
Affection should be voiced during the day, the booklet says, as well as during sex.
