Enjoy the health benefits of sex!
Sex is an enjoyable activity that deepens the bond between a couple. However, beyond the emotional quotient and pleasure it provides, it packs in plenty of health benefits too. A regular sex life is something that you should aim at.
Improves self esteem
Research shows that people who have regular sex feel more powerful, confident and attractive. People have sex so that they can feel good about themselves and vice versa too.
You will be surprised to know that sex makes you feel less pain. During arousal and orgasm, the feel-good hormone oxytocin is generated by the hypothalamus in the brain. This brings down the pain.
Protection against cancer
A study conducted by the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that frequent ejaculations by men in their twenties reduced the risk of prostate cancer. Another research study found that men over 50 who have frequent sex have a lower risk of prostate cancer compared to men their same age who do not have sex often.
Sex is great for your heart
Did you know that sex can reduce the risk of a fatal heart attack? Research studies point out that men who had sex twice or more each week have a lesser risk of dying from a heart attack compared to those who had it less frequently.
Improves sperm quality
Regular orgasms in a man increase his fertility and improve the sperm quality. The European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology found in its study that men who had sex daily or ejaculated daily, had better quality semen after seven days than those who did not have sex.
Brings down stress
Sex is a well-known stress reliever. This even works before undertaking an activity that could cause stress such as making a speech or taking a tough quiz.
