Men communicate to have sex
Women have sex to communicate
If you have been married or have been in a very long relationship you might agree. However, I am not going to discuss or even debate on the above. Today I am more interested to share the benefits of having sex. According to Sex therapist Dr. Ava Cadell, “Sex is the best prescription for good health.”
1. Sex Boosts Immunity
There is a study that proved people who have sex one to two times a week actually have an increase in their immune function. Having sex helps to fight off infections and could help you heal faster. Sex can help your body to produce more antibodies that fight off the germs that make you sick.
2. Sex Prevents Sleepless Nights
During sex, endorphins, natural painkillers are released, and they can help a person relax and sleep better.
3. Sex Promotes Weight Loss
Moderate sex, such as 60 minutes over the course of a week, can add up to 100 calories burned.
4. Sex Strengthens Bones and Muscles
Sex helps to strengthen the vaginal muscles. During intercourse, the PC muscles stretch and contract which strengthens them. Stronger muscles provide increased sensation of orgasm.
Another way to strengthen the PC muscles is through electrical stimulation and vaginal weights.
5. Sex Reduces Chronic Pain
Having sex can actually diminish pain when suffering from chronic pain, arthritis, PMS and headaches. When having sex you need to have orgasm because it releases the surge of five times more oxytocin and then released the morphine-like endorphins that null and void the nerve endings that are creating the pain.
No orgasm? Touching and hugging provide a lot of the same health benefits, as well.
6. Sex Increased Sense of Smell
Having sex helps your sense of smell. Having sexual intercourse stimulates the pituitary gland which forms prolactin, which stimulates the part of your brain involved with smell.
7. Sex Helps to Prevent Prostate Cancer
The prostate is a gland located between the bladder and the penis. It needs to be stimulated periodically to avoid becoming enlarged, because an over sized prostate can become cancerous.
8. Sex Boost Confidence
For women sex really boosts their confidence and gives them a good self-image.
Although sex is healthy, too much of it can cause an unbalance of bacteria in the vagina, which can lead to yeast infections or urinary tract infections. To help prevent these conditions, women should have the man wear a condom, urinate after sex and take a birth control pill, which will heighten a woman’s estrogen levels and help regulate the pH balance in her vagina.
