Remember the ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ movie played by Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie? The intense argument between the husband and wife eventually culminated in love and intimate relationship. Such incidents are always seen in Hollywood movies. But is the matter at all realistic? or this type of stories made entirely in need of cinema?
According to some psychological research, physical intimacy can often be the result of a argument. There are several reasons behind this. Like :
Contribution of hormones:
According to American psychologist Andrew Aaron, hormones like Testosterone, Adrenaline, Cortisol increase in the body during fights. All of these hormone increase arousal and stress. And during sex, body release serotonin and dopamine, which are also called happy hormone. Because they are released when we are happy. The previous hormones that makes our body stressed ultimately try to convert it into aroused and increase the physical needs. As a result, the desire for physical contact increases in many cases.
Any quarrel creates a kind of fear in the mind. Physical contact helps to overcome that fear. Fear is replaced by excitement and joy. This is also one of the reasons behind the physical relationship after the quarrel.
Another psychologist, Alyssa Gendorfer, claims that hormones increase energy in the body during fights. That is the force that drives many people toward physical contact. If the level of ‘energy’ between the two of them increases from the quarrel, then it can lead to a healthy sex.
According to psychologist Gayle Sultz, in many cases there is an urge to apologize to each other after a fight. But many cannot express that regret or apology verbally. And that’s where body language comes in. Not only that, according to Sultz, every quarrel can lead to bad childhood memories. Physical contact also helps to dispel those memories.
These are the scientific explanation why arguments leads one toward physical intimate relationship.
