Are you stressed? Struggling to sleep? Turns out there are a number of ailments that can be cured simply by having sex regularly. Here are why you and your partner should be having sex daily!
If you’ve had a long day at work or you’re simply feeling a little overwhelmed, then sex will help you relax and reduce your stress levels! During sex our bodies produce dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin which together help us to de-stress, increases our natural happiness levels and enhances desire.
Throughout sex our bodies are continually experiencing physiological changes that are consistent with an exercise routine. Our breathing rates rise which in turn burns calories, which means that if you have sex just three times a week you can burn around 7,500 calories a year. That’s the same as running 75 miles! During sex, antigens like immunoglobulin A are released which are proven to fight the common cold and even flu!
Like exercise, sex increases your heart rate which leads to relaxation. ‘After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, ‘which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness after sex.’
Having sex three times a week can apparently make you appear 10 years younger than your real age! The ultimate culmination of all of these wonderful, positive effects regular sex has on our health and minds is that we will add years to our life spans. In fact, a study revealed that male participants who had sex regularly lived twice as long as those who rarely got any action!
