Here’s a fun fact: Having sex 3 times a week cuts your chances of experiencing a heart attack in half. Yes, that’s right – in half! Now that I’ve got your attention on the benefits of sex let’s look at 9 reasons you need to get your partner into the sack more often:
Instant Stress Relief: Feeling annoyed because of something that happened during the day? Give those anxious thoughts a break as you release natural oxytocin into your brain which will balance your body out.
You Da Man! Or Woman! Pleasing your partner isn’t the only benefit after the big O, the confidence gained after sex snowballs into other parts of your life, soon people will be commenting on what seems different about you.
Cancer Prevention: The Journal of American Medical Association reports that the more a guy ejaculates, the less likely he is to develop prostate cancer. Can you say Double Bonus!
Stop The Flu: Immunoglobulin is an antibody that helps combat diseases and helps to prevent colds and flus. Turn your sick days into sex days by upping your levels of this antibody by increasing your sexy time.
The Solution To Achieving That Beach Body You Always Wanted? Well, not quite BUT sex is definitely a form of cardio, and can eliminate up to 250 calorie in one romp (or more if well, you know). Not only that but your abs, back, butt, thighs will be OK that you skipped that spin class and stayed in bed instead.
Age Slower And Live Longer: Time to skip those Botox appointments and have more sex because yes it really does slow the aging process. Sex has a positive effect on EVERY organ in your body and if your partner for some reason ‘isn’t interested’ at the moment, you can always tell them ‘Dennis told me I’d live longer’ – works every time.
No More Pain: Most cardiovascular exercises cause release of endorphins, but sex is just plain more fun than a treadmill. This natural pain fighter gives us a sense of euphoria that can last many hours afterwards. This kind of pain killing endorphin release is known to be the best possible (as well as legal) way of achieving a natural high without the cost of treatments such as acupuncture, massage, and hydrotherapy.
Sex Heals: Whether it’s a relationship that needs to heal, cells needing regeneration or wounds that need healing, sex is the answer for faster healing. Many studies have shown that regular romping (did I really say romping) kick starts the oxytocin in the body during the big O, and this speeds up the healing process.
Forget And Improve Overall Happiness: Deep down we all want to experience more happiness and forget about that lingering credit card bill or any relationship troubles we might have. Sex helps you forget your troubles, gives your intimacy a lift and increases your imagination. Funny enough, it’s proven that regular sexy time provided couples the same levels of happiness as couples that earn over $100,000 per year, now there’s something to brag about.
Love is the universal language, and I’m pretty sure I’ve convinced you that Sex = Less stress which = improved mental health, now go!
