Marvin Gaye wasn’t kidding when he sang about Sexual healing. Sex is really good for you. Apart from the fact that sex is well… fun. It has other great values it adds to your health.
Here’s a list of 10 of the best values you can get from sex
Sex is a great exercise. It increases cardiovascular stamina and builds endurance just like aerobics since heartbeats and pulse rates rise during sexual activities.
You can burn about 100 to 150 calories during sex. Just imagine how many you’d lose in a month if you had sex every day. Way better and more fun than jogging.
It’s a natural pain killer. I can never forget one episode of Grey’s Anatomy I saw where Dr Derek, AKA McDreamy ( a character in Grey’s Anatomy) prescribed porn to his patient who was in constant pain that no pain killer could cure. Sexual activity can ease headaches, menstrual cramps, and even arthritis or low back pain. Endorphins produced during sex produce a morphine like effect throughout the body. So guys next time she wants to use headache as an excuse, show her this post.
The contraction and relaxation of the muscles during Orgasms lead to total body relaxation.
Sex boosts cellular immunity
Endorphins released during sexual activity strengthens the immune system by producing biochemically induced euphoria and the white blood cells that help to increase immunity.
Improves total body balance
The endorphins released during sex also enable you to sleep soundly and give you a complete sense of well being.
Stress reliever anybody?
Sex is the ultimate stress reliever. Best way to calm the nerves after a long, stress-filled day at the office.
Best beauty treatment
The skin’s blood vessels dilate during sexual activity, this produces a flush that lasts for hours. The increased blood flow improves skin tone and color because it helps skin to regenerate and become more pliable and elastic. What I’m just trying to explain is that sex gives you a glow.
Studies have shown that men who have more sex are less likely to develop prostate cancer. Talk about a plus! So ladies, if your man says he isn’t in the mood, remind him that the more frequent his ejaculations, the less likely he is to have prostate cancer.
I bet that would change his mind
Sex keeps you in shape
Last but not least, for the men out there, tell your women that, women who have sex on a WEEKLY (or daily) basis have higher estrogen levels than those who don’t and estrogen helps maintain bone density, keeps the cardiovascular and circulatory system running smoothly, lowers LDL(bad cholesterol) and HDL(good cholesterol).
I dunno, but it seems women benefit more from sex than men?
You should also know that sex boosts the endocrine system. This system helps in the manufacture of hormones.
