Sex doesn't just feel good; it can be good for you. Here are eight ways sex is good for your health!
Men who regularly orgasm, whether through masturbation or sex, have healthier prostates and a reduced rate of inflammation or even prostate cancer. Direct prostate stimulation isn't even necessary because frequent orgasms keep the prostate active and in tip-top condition!
Depending on how wild you are in the sack, having sex can be quite the workout. It's even more of a workout if you take your time and add foreplay, which incidentally makes for better, less painful sex and easier orgasms!
An orgasm a day might not keep the doctor away, but it can hold insomnia at bay. Many people enjoy sex or masturbating just before bedtime because it helps them drift off to dreamland. And quality sleep means you're next-day functioning, mood and metabolism will be boosted!
Sex is a great way to relieve stress, even if it's solo time. There's something about the buildup and release of an orgasm that can make a bad day so much better, and the feel-good hormones help, too!
While you might be familiar with a sudden headache as an excuse not to have sex, sexual activity can actually help with the pain! So don't be too quick to write it off if you've got some cramps or a headache. Sex might provide to be a wonderful distraction and a pain reliever.
The movies have tried to convince us that people often kick the bucket during sex due to heart attacks, but this is actually quite rare. Instead, sex might help fortify your heart against a sudden attack by keeping hormone levels balanced.
At least one doctor lauds sex for its benefits to your immune system. It turns out that sexually active folks have higher levels of antibodies that help to fight off would-be attackers such as the common cold virus!
High blood pressure and stress go hand-in-hand, so it should be no surprise that what's good for lowering one can decrease the other, too. This goes for sex, which has been found to lower systolic blood pressure. It's no replacement for medication and other healthy choices, but it's a start!
Now that you know how sex can be healthy, what are you waiting for?
