Other than the feel-good climax, there are plenty of other benefits to sex! Here are some of the top perks of getting down and dirty between the sheets:
Sex can be a great chance to get your blood flowing! You get your heart pumping, muscles flexing, and even burn some calories.
One study showed that men burned about 101 calories during sex, or 4.2 calories per minute. Women burned about 69 calories during sex, or 3.1 calories per minute. Read the full study here: Insider
Feeling stressed? Consider getting busy in the bedroom as well as at work. Sex benefits you in more ways than you think as it releases endorphins leading to reduced stress and improved mood.
Immune System Warrior
Regular sex can help keep you from getting sick. It’s believed to increase the production of antibodies and boost the immune system.
Ever notice how you feel all cozy and sleepy after a roll in the hay? That’s the magic of sex-induced relaxation. You’ll find that sleep comes quicker after some bedroom fun and you may even benefit from a deeper sleep.
Those endorphins we mentioned also act as painkillers, providing temporary relief from all kinds of aches and pains that may be troubling you. Time for some ‘self-medication?’
A healthy heart is a happy heart. Studies suggest that regular sex can benefit your overall heart health and regular sexual activity is associated with a decreased risk of heart attacks and strokes. That’s a pretty great excuse!
Feeling on top of the world! Positive experiences in bed can boost your confidence and make you feel awesome about your body.
They say sex is the elixir of life. While it might not grant you eternal life, it might add some extra years to your clock.
These benefits of sex can vary from person to person, but if you’re having a good time and keeping it safe, why not enjoy the benefits? Contact us to kickstart your new favourite healthy habit!
