A few weeks ago we did a blog for the gentlemen about how sex can benefit athletic performance. But, what about the ladies? So we decided to go back and gather all the benefits for everyone. Here are a few benefits of sex for all genders!
In one Scottish study men and women who engaged in sexual activity regularly responded better when placed within stressful situations. Coupled with this, sex has been shown to increase your positive mood. A study done by the National Bureau of Economic Research showed sex made people happier than money. A marriage that included regular sex was figured to bring the same levels of happiness as earning an extra $100,000 annually! Whoa!
Having sex once or twice a week has been linked to higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A. This antibody can help protect you from getting colds and other infections as well. For an extra boost of immunity try pairing those chocolate covered aphrodisiacs with CSpray. Vitamin C can be one sexy health boost.
Sex Burns Calories
Couldn’t make it to the gym today? Well you can possibly make it up tonight. Your body burns about 85 or more calories per half hour during sex. Burn off those chocolate strawberries with some healthy sexercise. Oh snap, did we just create a new word? Feel free to use it. :)
Get Your Heart Thumping To Keep It Pumping
A 20 year long British study shows that men who had sex two or more times a week were half as likely to have a fatal heart attack than men who had sex less than once a month.
A Natural Pain Reliever
This one might have you switching from saying “Not tonight, honey, I have a headache” to “Yes, tonight, honey, I have a headache.” There is believed to be a correlation between sex and pain management, especially in women. When you become sexually aroused and orgasm the hormone Oxytocin is secreted in your body. This, in turn, causes the release of endorphins which act as your bodies natural opiates to help mask pain.
Lighter Periods with Fewer Cramps
Going horizontal during menstruation has been shown to help decrease the risk for endometriosis, a condition in which uterine tissue grows outside of the uterus, causing pain during sex. Sex during your period may also help relieve cramps. When a woman has an orgasm, her uterus contracts and rids the body of compounds that cause cramps.
A Youthful Glow
Getting busy can help make you even more beautiful. In one study participants those who enjoy lots of action with a steady partner (4 times a week, on average) were perceived to be 7 to 12 years younger than their actual age. Having sex on the regular helps release hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. The release of these hormones aids in keeping our bodies looking young and vital. Estrogen promotes softer skin and shinier hair. This has been linked to sex actually helping to slow the aging process within the body. So put a sock on the door and turn back the clock.
There are many psychological benefits that accompany the physical including less stress, more happiness, and feelings of satisfaction.
