Sex has health benefits? You bet your sweet ass it does! Ever wonder why that brand new relationship has you feeling like you’re at the top of the world? Chances are you’re having sex, and a lot of it. So other than feeling really good, how is sex good for you?
- An old British study says that men who have sex two or more times a week are less likely to have heart issues.
- It can boost self-esteem.
- Orgasms boosts the hormone oxytocin (the love hormone) and some think it can prompt labor in pregnant women (a benefit if you’ve ever been 9 months and having to pee every 30 seconds.) Who couldn’t use a bit more love?
- Oxytocin also promotes the release of endorphins. Those feel good hormones also aide in the reduction of pain, menstrual cramps and headaches among other things.
- More sex/ejaculation in men reduces the risk of prostrate cancer in men. So men, if you’re single, don’t skip the lotion… 20 times a month you must.
- Stronger pelvic floor muscles in women. DO YOUR KEGELS. You’ll thank me when you can laugh or sneeze without tinkling in your panties.
- Better sleep. Insomniacs should and could use more sex in their life.
- Sex, especially when coupled with orgasm (sorry men, we just DON’T every time,) can reduce stress and aide in better blood pressure.
- Sex can also boost immunity. One can argue that unprotected sex does the opposite, but we’re talking about the act here. I’m assuming you all are responsible adults. Your health is YOUR responsibility, no one else’s.
- 30 minutes of sex burns 200 calories.
- An orgasm can actually clear your sinuses. (As an allergy sufferer, I’ve never found this to be true, but so says the science.
- The more you have, the more you want. For women, this means you’ll actually produce more testosterone, which is what aides us in becoming hornier women. (There’s a reason sluts are sluts 😉
- Confidence… pleasing your partner builds confidence.
- Sex has anti-aging properties? It sure does. Having frequent sex slows the aging process.
You’re welcome… now go bump uglies.
