World (Truth Inside of You) – It turns out, if you have sex every day, you are enjoying some pretty amazing health benefits by doing so.
There have been some interesting scientific studies done on the subject of having a healthy sex life. In every one of those studies which used healthy participants, it was found that people who have sex more than 3 times a week are healthier, younger looking, and even live longer than those who don’t.
Personally, I think having sex frequently makes you feel incredible. It elevates your mood, and benefits your mind and body. But my personal experience isn’t really classed as “scientific.” So let’s see what the experts say.
Here are 10 reasons why you should definitely be having sex every day:
1) Sex drops your stress levels.
If you had a tense working day or you have anxiety over something, sex will allow you to relax and fight your stress. With sexual intercourse, dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin are produced: these hormons produce a feeling of happiness and increase desire.
2) Sex is a fun exercise.
If you feel lazy just hearing the word “exercise“, then sex may offer you a way more enjoyable way of working out. Intercourse makes our heart beat and breathing faster, allowing us to burn calories.
“Sex is a really great form of exercise,” says Joseph J. Pinzone, M.D., C.E.O. and Medical Director of Amai Wellness. “Like with exercise, consistency helps maximize the benefits.”
3) Sex enhances our immune system.
Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania came to the conclusion that students who have sex at least a couple of times per week have higher levels of some antibodies, compared to those who don’t have sex. Sexual intercourse releases antigens like immunoglobulin A, which can prevent the common cold or a flu.
4) Sex lowers the blood pressure.
Forms of physical contact, even a quickie, can drop the levels of blood pressure. Researchers at the University of Paisley found that diastolic blood pressure is reduced by sexual intercourse.
5) Sex improves your heart health.
The calories that are burnt during sex also help our heart health. A study done at the New England Research Institute stated that men who have sex regularly have 45% less chances to develop cardiovascular diseases.
6) Sex offers pain relief.
If you get various kinds of aches, sex is a better way to handle them than pills. Arthritis specialist Dr. George Erlich discovered that his patients who had regular sex felt less pain than those who didn’t.
7) Sex keeps a stable period cycle.
Instability in your period has a lot to do with stress, and that’s how sex can help you battle it.
8) Sex builds strong pelvic muscles.
And quads, back and core muscles! Stronger pelvic muscles will also lead you to have more intense orgasms.
9) Sex reduces the chances of getting cancer.
This works mostly for men, and it is about prostate cancer. Ejaculating at least 21 times per month makes you way more likely to develop from this kind of cancer.
10) Sex makes you sleep well.
As a form of exercise, sex increases your heart rate, which afterwards makes your body relax. Also, male ejaculation causes lethargy, which is why men are very sleepy after sex.
“After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released,” says Sheenie Ambardar, M.D., a psychiatrist in West Hollywood, California, “which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness after sex.”
