For most people sex can be fun, exciting, and a way to express your intimate feelings to your partner. For others, sex can be secretive or even a taboo subject. We know you can associate sex with many things, but health benefits are not on your list, right?
Luckily, we have good news – sex is beneficial to health in many ways, for both women and men. It has many benefits for your emotional, mental, and physical health.
Many studies have confirmed people who enjoy sex at least once or twice weekly, have higher antibody levels in their immune system. Antibodies help in the fight against illness and infections. The more sex you have, the fewer days you’ll be sick!
It replaces the gym
Are you not a fan of the gym? But, you’re probably a fan of sex, right? Start having more sec, since it burns about 5 calories per minute. Sex doesn’t get only the heart rate up, but it also strengths different muscles in your body.
If you cannot get an erection, don’t worry – there’re medications like Cialis and Viagra that will help you. Say goodbye to erectile dysfunction - you’ll enjoy sex again with these medications.
If you have high blood pressure, the risk of having health problems like stroke and heart attack is higher. You understand how important is to keep the blood pressure at a normal level. Well, good news again – many studies have shown that sex can lower your blood pressure. Keeping it at a healthy level is much easier with sex!
We all know sex is helpful for our health in terms of emotions, love, and intimacy. However, sex is literally good for the health of your heart. Studies have studied the effects of sexual activity on cardiovascular health. They have discovered people who have sexual intercourse at least twice weekly, are less likely to have heart disease.
Don’t turn down sex because you’re having a stomachache or a headache. Sex can be what you need for your pain. When you have an orgasm, your body will produce endorphins. The hormones will block pain signals to your brain and will relieve whatever troubles you.
When you have intercourse, your brain works too, besides your body. Thirty brain active parts are involved in reaching orgasm. The neurotransmitters function as ‘feel-good’ hormones that will ease anxiety and stress. They also intensify happiness and self-esteem. What is more, they can strengthen the relationship with your partner.
The vagina is self-lubricating and self-cleaning. These functions are preserved through healthy tissues and good blood flow. And for these functions to be maintained, you need to masturbate or have sex regularly.
However, you need to be well informed and know that sex can also trigger many vaginal problems like thrush, BV, and UTI’s.
These exercises are particularly beneficial for women who gave birth. When you have an orgasm, the muscles will contract. With this strengthening exercise, you’ll avoid urinary incontinence.
The more sex you have, the more you’ll want! It’s simple as that. With regular sex, you’ll boost the libido, but you’ll also make your sex life better and more enjoyable.
We know this is obvious, but we must remind you again to have protected sex. Always have a condom with you. There’s always the risk of transmitted infections and you’ll also avoid unwanted pregnancies.
