5. S*x Helps a Healthy Heart.
As our bodies burn calories, it also improves our heart health. Researchers from the New England Research Institute found that men are 45% less likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases if they have regular s*x.
6. S*x Helps Pain Relief.
If you’re experiencing aches, pains or migraines then s*x may be a better form of pain relief than pills! Arthritis specialist Dr. George Erlich conducted a study on his patients and found that those who had s*x often experienced significantly less pain than their counterparts who went without.
7. S*x Ensures Regular Periods.
If your periods are a bit erratic, it could be down to a stressful lifestyle. As mentioned previously, s*x reduces stress and so will also have an impact on your menstrual cycle!
8. S*x Creates Powerful Pelvic Muscles.
As well as quads, back and core muscles, s*x also works out your pelvic muscles! Is there a better way of building muscle? I don’t think so! By creating stronger pelvic muscles you also benefit by having better orgasms according to the National Health Service (NHS).
‘For women, as well as helping improve symptoms of urinary incontinence, strong pelvic floor muscles can also mean increased sensitivity during sex and stronger orgasms,’ the NHS states. ‘Pelvic floor exercises can also benefit men with problems such as erectile dysfunction (difficulty getting or keeping an erection) and urinary incontinence’.
9. S*x Reduces The Risk Of Cancer.
Particularly for men, regular s*x reduces the chances of developing cancer. In an Australian study published the Journal of the American Medical Association, it was found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month were much less likely to suffer form prostate cancer.
10. S*x Makes You Sleep Well.
Like exercise, s*x increases your heart rate which leads to relaxation. In addition to this, it’s common knowledge that male ejaculation leads to lethargy which can make men extremely sleepy after s*x.
‘After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released,’ says Sheenie Ambardar, MD. a psychiatrist in West Hollywood, California, ‘which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness after s*x.’
11. S*x Makes You Look 10 Years Younger.
Having s*x three times a week can apparently make you appear 10 years younger than your real age! In his book Secrets of the Superyoung, Scottish researcher and clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, David Weeks states: “It’s good for you to have good sex.” What more incentive do you need?
12. S*x Lengthens Your Life.
The ultimate culmination of all of these wonderful, positive effects regular s*x has on our health and minds is that we will add years to our life spans. In fact, a study published in the British Medical Journal revealed that male participants who had s*x regularly lived twice as long as those who rarely got any action!
So there you have it: there are officially no downsides to having sex regularly, so get at it!
