In the following animation, we will show what role your 'vagus nerve' plays in the bedroom.

The way you breathe has a big impact on your lovemaking, your capacity to experience different orgasms and orgasmic states and - take notice guys - on ejaculation control. During sex, breathing in the right way is vital for relaxing the body and controlling the flow of sexual energy. Sexual energy can’t flow freely when you are holding your breath or only taking shallow breaths. Your breath indeed is a powerful tool that you can use in your sexual play.

The brain and the heart are connected through the vagus nerve, which serves as the “highway” for transmitting and regulating nerve impulses from the brain to the heart. Exhaling activates the vagus nerve which then causes the heart to beat slower. This will help you to relax both your mind and your body, which in turn will help enrich your sex life.
