Growing up, adults tried to beat into your head that sex was evil and would bring you nothing but “The Clap,” “Rosemary’s Baby,” and a broken heart. Well, now that you are all grown up yourself, you know that these things can still happen, however, hopefully you didn’t have “Carrie’s” mom and know the proper precautions to take. After these precautions are taken, the benefits of sex (and lots of it!) may surprise you and give you a reason to do it more often! If you aren’t in the mood these days, try anyway. The more you do it, the more your body wants to do it.
Lengthen Your Life
Studies have shown that sex keeps hormones in both men and women in balance, as well as get their heart rates up. When a person’s hormone levels become imbalanced it can throw the whole body off and this can include an increased risk in heart disease. One study actually found that men who had sex two or more times a week were 50% less likely to die from a heart related illness than men who rarely had sex.
No “Depends” About it!
30% of all women will have trouble with incontinence in their life. Good and frequent sex is a great workout for the muscles in the pelvis responsible for helping women control their bladders. Orgasms are responsible for most of this workout because they contract these muscles, making them stronger.
Sex Fights Disease
Although you should always stay active, sleep proper amounts, have current vaccinations and eat right to keep your immune system in good shape, researchers at Wilkes University found that students that participated in “naughty” extra-curricular activities at least 1-2 times weekly had more disease fighting antibodies built up in their bodies than those who played Dungeons and Dragons on the weekends.
Curing Pain Naturally
Orgasms can help the body not feel pain, as it releases a hormone that raises one’s pain threshold. Even just stimulation of the genitals not producing a mind blowing orgasm can do the trick helping especially with chronic pain in the back or legs, menstrual cramping and headaches.
Get “Rocked” to Sleep
Orgasms cause the body to produce a hormone that makes you sleepy called Prolactin. After sex, you will probably sleep a little deeper than if you just fell asleep watching Letterman. Unless you’re into to that, and who am I to judge?
Clean those Pipes
Men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month had a decreased risk of developing Prostate Cancer, in a study done by the American Medical Association. Don’t worry if you can’t get a chick to your house or if your blow up doll is deflated. The 21 times of ejaculation in a month included sex, the occasional “wet dream,” and masturbation. Sometimes when you want something done, you just have to do it yourself, am I right?! Especially, if it’s for your health! Even though more factors go into the risk of all types of Cancers, more sex can’t hurt!
I know for a fact that there are many, many, many more benefits to sex!! Hell, who cares if there isn’t! Here are some tips to help you keep your New Year’s Resolution to get healthier and maybe life up a bit!
