What is sexual chemistry?
Sexual chemistry is something you can’t see, just like love.
But you know you feel it when someone you like is in the same room.
If you and a special someone feel excited just to talk to each other, or feel weak in the knees while kissing each other goodbye, chances are, there’s a lot of sexual chemistry in the air.
When you think you’re falling in love with someone at first sight, it’s infatuation.

Why is sexual chemistry important in a relationship?
Love may hold a relationship together, but sexual chemistry keeps the attraction alive.
If you and your partner don’t share sexual chemistry, you’d find no difference in the way you treat your lover or your sibling.
After all, love without sexual attraction is just too innocent to be termed as a romance. And that’s why sexual chemistry makes all the difference in a relationship.
But at the same time, sexual chemistry isn’t something that can be faked or created. It has to come to life from deep inside when two people who are attracted to each other meet. If you don’t feel the sexual attraction towards someone, there’s really not much hope for a relationship. [Read: How to know if you’re in love or getting attracted to someone]
Even if you end up dating someone who doesn’t feel sexually excited to be with you, they may just end up leaving you for someone else or having an affair behind your back. So if you can’t feel the sexual chemistry when you’re dating someone, don’t get into a relationship. It’s just not worth the pain and effort.
Why can’t you feel the sexual chemistry?
There are many types of people in the world. And not everyone will be able to share the perfect sexual chemistry with each other. If you’re an enthusiastic and adventurous type of person, you may not enjoy a great sexual chemistry with someone who loves routine. After all, as much as sexual chemistry is about sex, it also has a lot to do with lifestyle choices and the way we present ourselves.
If you like someone and find yourself getting attracted to them, but at the same time, you don’t feel the sexual excitement deep inside, perhaps both of you are just not sexually compatible with each other. Don’t fret though. These things happen all the time. So if you ever find yourself having seconds thoughts about someone you like, chances are, both of you are lacking in the sexual chemistry department.

The two types of sexual chemistry
Sexual chemistry is important in two phases of interaction between two individuals, at first sight and in the long term.
When you meet someone and immediately feel sexually attracted to that person, and they feel the same towards you, then you’re experiencing the chemistry at first sight.
And if you’ve been in a relationship for over a year, the second form of sexual chemistry starts to kick in. During the first few months of the relationship with your new lover, the infatuation and the sexual chemistry combine to create an intense attraction towards each other. But as the months turn to years, the infatuation fades away and turns into a mature love.
And when that happens, sexual chemistry too starts to take a nose dive. Almost all relationships that hold past a year or more, enters this stage of mediocre sexual chemistry. But there are always ways to bring that back with a bang. [Read: 10 sexy ways to make married sex feel like a one night stand]
