Having s*x every day of your life could actually be saving you from a lot of health hazards and prolonging your life.
Are you stressed? Struggling to sleep? Turns out there are a number of ailments that can be cured simply by having s*x regularly. Here are twelve reasons why you and your partner should be having s*x daily!
1. S*x Reduces Stress.
If you’ve had a long day at work or you’re simply feeling a little overwhelmed, then s*x will help you relax and reduce your stress levels! During sex our bodies produce dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin which together help us to de-stress, increases our natural happiness levels and enhances desire.
2. S*x Is An Enjoyable Exercise.
When faced with the word ‘workout’ many of us will recoil in horror, unless of course that workout involves sex. Throughout s*x our bodies are continually experiencing physiological changes that are consistent with an exercise routine. Our breathing rates rise which in turn burns calories, which means that if you have sex just three times a week you can burn around 7,500 calories a year. That’s the same as running 75 miles!
‘Sex is a really great form of exercise,’ says Joseph J. Pinzone, MD. CEO and medical director of Amai Wellness. ‘Like with exercise, consistency helps maximize the benefits.’
3. S*x Helps Your Immune System.
Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that their students who stated they had s*x at least twice a week had higher levels of particular antibodies than those who had no sex at all. During sex, antigens like immunoglobulin A are released which are proven to fight the common cold and even flu! Even more good news: the more frequently you engage in sex the more antigens will be released and the healthier you’ll get.
4. S*x Lowers Your Blood Pressure.
Even if it’s just a quickie, some forms of physical contact can improve your blood pressure significantly. A study conducted by the University of Paisley found that sex reduces diastolic blood pressure – which is the bottom number on a blood pressure reading – making us healthier all around!
