When you’ve got it on with your partner, certainly the last thing you want to think about is getting a stronger immune system and maintaining your weight! You just want to bare-it-all and get to doing IT!
Health benefits of sex are like the cherry on top of the cake, you love the cake already, and then there’s the pretty, juicy cherry adorning it that makes it all the more sumptuous!
Here are 10 reasons why you should be having sex EVERY night (not that you need any other reasons, but still!).
- BOOSTS IMMUNITY
Regular sex helps build immunity. According to research, having sex at least twice a week releases higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A also known as IgA in the body, which protects you from regular infections like common cold. So cut down on the D-colds and spend your medical budget on more contraception!
- KEEPS YOUR HEART HEALTHY
Although having a heart attack while ‘doing it’ may make for great drama film, the likelihood of this is very slim! Sex is actually very healthy for your heart, for men in particular! The men who engage in sexual activity two or more times every week reduce the risk of heart attack largely as compared to those who have sex less than once per month!
- HELPS YOU SLEEP BETTER!
If it bothers you every time your man, or you, doze-off right after climaxing, and you get to enjoy the post-sex cuddles very rarely, be assured it’s very natural and healthy! The body releases a chemical called ‘oxytocin’ during orgasm, that instantly relaxes the body and directs it to catch some rest. Not to mention, the better you sleep, the happier you are when awake!
- RELIEVES MENTAL STRESS
If you blame your hectic work life for hampering your sex life, you should be doing exactly the opposite! Instead of having less frequent sex when you’re stressed, have as much of it as you can. The ‘happy hormones’ released during sex are sufficient to distract your mind from everything that’s been bothering you at work, and you also get to share your problems with your partner!
- BURNS CALORIES – YES!
If you’ve been wondering whether you can ever lose weight without sweating it out at the gym, or without following tasteless diets, we know exactly what you can do. Sweat it out in bed! Reports suggest that a healthy 30-minute sex session burns as many as a 100 calories! So depending on how much you’re aiming to lose, turn the heat up!
- IMPROVES WOMEN’S BLADDER CONTROL
Okay, we know this is the last thing on your mind when you think of ‘health benefits from sex’, but believe us, over 30% of women are affected by incontinence at some point in their lives. Having sex is a good workout for your pelvic muscles, and an orgasm causes those muscles to contract, which strengthens them further.
- KEEPS A CHECK ON YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Owing to the fluctuations in your heartbeat while doing IT, having sex is also a great workout for your cardio-vascular muscles and the fact that it also relieves stress is something that adds-up to the life of your heart.
- IMPROVES INTIMACY WITH THE PARTNER
While sex in itself is an outcome of great intimacy with your partner, being frequent at it makes sure you’re bonded better. The hormone oxytocin released during sex is also called the ‘love hormone’, because it inhibits a feeling of love, generosity and care towards your partner, especially when the two of you talk or cuddle after the action!
- RELIEVES BODY PAIN
The cramps you might feel in your legs or pelvis because of doing it after a LONG time are different, but having sex generally relieves all other kinds of muscular pain in your body.
10. REDUCES THE RISK OF PROSTATE CANCER
