Understanding multifold health benefits of sex

Just like food, sex too nourishes our body and mind. Do you remember the chapter on nutrition that you read in your biology class? We all must have the right amount of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals to stay healthy and fit. In the same way, every adult individual must have lots of sex daily or at least weekly to stay fit, healthy and happy. Maybe the pleasure offered by your activities between the sheets does not last longer than 5 to 10 minutes but its effects are quite long lasting.

A good and active sex life marks you as a healthy person. Suppressing your sexual desires will only lead to physical and psychological issues. To be really happy and healthy you must enjoy sex. Many people consider sex to be a chore like washing the dishes after many years of matrimony. Do not make the same mistake and do whatever is required to keep your sex life alive and thriving.

Sex offers a host of great health benefits to us. Every time you reach an orgasm and gush out your partner’s name, your body releases oxytocin. Oxytocin is known for reducing the stress levels in both men and women. When your stress levels decrease, you will naturally start feeling better about yourself and maybe start humming a song or two. Such joviality will make you more attractive to your partner. Sex can instantaneously lift your mood. Lightheartedness makes you attractive and you enjoy flirting more. This can definitely lead to more sex. This means the more sex you have, the more sex you will get.


Scientific studies have found that having regular sex can decrease your chronic pains. Women who have sex during their premenstrual cycle complain less about cramp pains. Sex is the most effective natural cure for many ailments. Instead of using different drugs for long periods, you should indulge more in sex.


Sex also reduces the severe pain of migraine to some extent. Having sex improves your blood circulation. Proper blood circulation opens up the pores of your skin and brings a glow to your face. A research conducted in the Edinburgh Hospital in Scotland shows that people who have sex at least 4 times a week look younger than those who do not get sex even once a week.


Every adult should learn to enjoy sex and have it as frequently as he/she can. Sex offers a lot of amazing health benefits and it is the key of physical and psychological well being.
