Are you looking for ways to be happier, healthier, and more relaxed? Good news! We have something for that…sex! Having sex is amazing (which you probably already knew) and can make you feel on top of the world. But did you know it can also burn fat, lower your blood pressure, and even extend your life? If you’re looking for the answer to lasting health and happiness, look no further than taking every chance you can to get it on. Like you really needed 10 reasons…
1. Enhances Trust and Intimacy
If you’re looking to build trust and intimacy with your partner, having sex every day will surely take you there. Sex actually sends an upsurge of oxytocin, the hormone responsible for love and happiness. Why do you think make-up sex is always so good? Oxytocin brought on by sex brings couples closer together and greatly enhances levels of intimacy.
2. Good For Heart Health
Having sex every day is good for your heart. Sex has been shown in studies to reduce cardiovascular disease by a whopping 45 percent in men. A romp a day could definitely do wonders to keep the heart doctor at bay. Hit the bedroom (or any other place you can think of) with your partner once a day to ensure a happy, healthy heart.
3. Perfect Physical Activity
Who says you need to use exercise to get physical? Having sex can stand in for the perfect physical activity, and there’s no need to even leave your bedroom. Having sex is literally parallel to having a good workout. Respiratory rates rise, more oxygen gets to the blood, and you burn calories. As if these reasons weren’t enough, the testosterone released during sex is excellent at making bones and muscles strong. Next time you need some exercise, skip the gym and try some horizontal calisthenics instead.
4. Excellent Stress Relief
Feeling stressed out? Look no further than your partner. They won’t even need to say a word to make you feel better. There are ample amounts of dopamine released when you have sex, the chemical responsible for fighting stress hormones. Endorphins are also released helping to almost instantly take stress away and replace it with feelings of happiness instead. Have you ever known to feel stress when basking in that post-sex glow? Didn’t think so. Next time you’re feeling stressed out, look to your partner to release your stress through sex.
5. Lowers Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can wreak havoc on your health and may lead to all kinds of health issues down the road. Having sex every day can lower your blood pressure and reduce your risk of disease. That bottom number on your blood pressure reading is known as diastolic blood pressure and is the one that having sex can greatly reduce. If you’ve got high blood pressure, you’ve got the perfect excuse to start having a lot more sex.
6. Builds Immunity
A healthy immune system is the number one way to keep our bodies healthy and live a long and happy life. Increased sex increases immune function and can be just the thing you need the next time you’re fighting infection. Start having sex every day to build up your immunity and keep colds and other health issues far, far away. Gives a whole new meaning to the work prophylactic.
7. Protects the Prostate
As a pretty important part of sexual activity and health, the prostate is actually protected during regular bouts of sexual intercourse. This works by allowing the prostate gland to secrete semen on a regular basis. If this doesn’t occur, fluid tends to accumulate in the prostate gland and may cause infection or disease. Increase sex, increase ejaculation, and increase the longevity of your prostate gland.
8. Prevents Erectile Dysfunction
Unfortunately, erectile dysfunction is something that strikes more men than would care to admit it. If you’re worried about the day when you won’t be able to get it up, having sex on a regular basis will totally help with this. The more you keep it up, the more it will stay up. Think of it as a muscle that needs training to stay strong. Training bouts never felt as good as the one that keeps your love muscle strong and active. Furthermore, many ED issues are actually vascular in nature, so by improving your heart health and your blood pressure, there are many ways that sex can help you to, ahem…salute your partner.
9. Improves the Menstrual Cycle
The women that have sex daily will notice improvement with premenstrual and menstrual symptoms. As we all know, sex is amazing for reducing stress, one of the biggest reasons women have irregular menstrual cycles. Sex also helps to regulate hormones, something totally necessary in keep menstrual cycles regular. It can also help to greatly relieve cramps.
10. Increases Longevity
Having regular sex can increase your lifespan. This is in part because of how good sex is for the entire system in terms of reducing stress and lowering blood pressure, to increasing oxygen flow and building immunity. Sex has also shown to reduce the signs of aging, with some claiming that regularly getting it on has kept them looking ten years younger.
