I’m sure you’ve heard time and again how sex is healthy for you and I know for a fact that a majority of the ladies feel that this is just some lie concocted by men to get them to have sex more often.
Well, ladies and gents, it is indeed true that sex isn’t just for fun anymore. It is in fact part of a healthy lifesty and here are some reasons why from YourTango
* Orgasms actually switch your state of mind from pain to pleasure, and the contraction and relaxation of muscles can relieve cramps and some pain instantly.
* Feeling a bit under the weather? Well orgasms have been proven to increase estrogen and endorphin levels, which will improve a woman’s mood.
* Oxytocin, often referred to as “natures bonding agent” increases up to five times at the point of orgasm. This is it what makes it easier for you to bond with your partner and maybe do some cuddling.
* After the oxytocin kicks in, you have about 15 minutes to cuddle and what-not before nature does its jobs and carries you off to la-la land.
* The neurotransmitter dopamine released during arousal induces a state of relaxation that only intensifies at orgasm.
* Both men and women are perceived to look younger and healthier after the big “O.” Don’t have enough to splurge on a spa? Sex and orgasms can be one of the best spa treatments available to you at absolutely no cost!
* Believe it or not, sex strengthens the immune system, which keeps you healthy.
Still not convinced? Well, it feels good. And feeling good is an essential part of being healthy, isn’t it? 🙂
