Sex is a great stress reliever. Sex makes your body produce dopamine, endorphins, and other “feel good” hormones.
Sex is on par with most other types of exercises. Having sex three times a week for 15 minutes for an entire year is the same as jogging 75 miles.
3. Lowers high blood pressure.
Both hugs and sex lower high blood pressure. Sex is able to reduce diastolic blood pressure.
4. It boosts your immune system.
5. You’ll look younger.
Having sex three times a week can make you look up to ten years younger, according to a study on the effects of sex published in Secrets of the Superyoung.
6. Your heart will be stronger.
All that exercise from having sex improves your cardiovascular health and makes your heart stronger. You’ll be about 45% less likely to experience cardiovascular disease with frequent sex.
7. Pain relief.
Dr. George E. Elrich is an arthritis specialist from Philadelphia. He conducted a study on the link between arthritis and sex and found that those who had sex more often experienced less pain.
8. Lowered risk of cancer.
Routine ejaculation reduces your risk of prostate cancer. An Australian study found that men who ejaculated 21 times a month were less likely to develop prostate cancer.
9. Better sleep.
After a romp in the hay, much like exercise, the increased heart rate leads to relaxation afterward. This makes it ideal for insomniacs. Sex helps you sleep!
10. Regular periods.
Sex helps regulate hormones in women which makes the menstrual cycle a bit more routine. Stress is one of the biggest reasons women miss periods too.
11. No erectile dysfunction.
Half of men older than 40 suffer from erectile dysfunction of some kind. The best medicine is…sex! Erections help keep the blood flowering correctly.
12. You’ll live longer.
Summing it all up, less stress, a stronger heart, increased circulation of oxygen and happiness are all factors that help you live longer!
