17 reasons why having SEX is good for your health @RealTeeAli

|Sex seems to

be more than
a hormonal
discharge and
some short
moments of
pure pleasure.
Scientists
show that sex
is extremely beneficial for our
health, while the lack of an active
sex life might have negative
effects. But too much sex, can
also be harmful: more than thrice
a week it can weaken the
immune system, making us
vulnerable to infections…
1. Our mental and emotional
health balance is clearly
influenced by sex. Abstinence is
known to cause from anxiety to
paranoia and depression… In
fact, in case of light depressions,
after having sex the brain
releases endorphins, that
decrease stress, inducing a state
of euphoria.
2. Sex can be a beauty treatment.
While having sex, a woman’s
body doubles the estrogen level,
and this makes her hair shine
and the skin becomes softer.
3. A 10-year research carried on
1,000 middle-aged men at
Queens University in Belfast,
Ireland, showed that sex on a
regular basis increases the
humans’ lifespan. For the same
age and health, those who had
orgasms more frequently had
half the death rate of men who
did not have such frequent
orgasms. This could be due to
the plummeting stress
hormones, reaction that installs
after we have sex.
3. Sweating while having sex
cleanse the skin pores, making
the skin brighter and decreasing
the risk of developing dermatitis.
4. Sex can make us lose weight.
You burn all that fat and
carbohydrates from the romantic
dinner. Quickies of 20 minutes
weekly mean 7 500 calories
annually, that’s as much as you
consume on 120 km (745 mi) of
jogging. A sex session can burn
about 200 calories. This is like
running 15 minutes on a
treadmill!
5. Sex strengthen our muscles.
You can imagine the effort made
by your muscles through those
pushes and flexions. It depends
on your stunts in bed, of course.
And it’s clearly a lot more fun
than running for miles.
6. The more active your sex life is,
the more attractive for the
opposite sex you are. High sexual
activity makes the body release
more pheromones, chemicals
that attract the opposite sex.
7. Sex sharpens our senses, at
least the smell. Following the
orgasm, a rise of the hormone
prolactin makes the brain’s stem
cells form new neurons in the
olfactory bulb, boosting a
person’s olfactory abilities.
8. Sex is also a pain reliever, ten
times more effective than typical
painkillers: immediately before
orgasm, levels of the hormone
oxytocin rise by five times,
determining a huge release of
endorphins. These chemicals
calm pain, from a minor
headache to arthritis or
migraines, and with no
secondary effects. Migraines also
disappear because the pressure
in the brain’s blood vessels is
lowered while we have sex. So
now we see that actually, a
woman’s headache is rather a
good reason for having sex, not
against it.
9. Kissing your partner daily
means less visits to dentist.
Kissing stimulates salivation,
which cleanses food left between
the teeth and lowers the acidity
in the mouth, the main cause of
the tooth decay.
10. A good sex session can be a
good remedy against stiff nose,
being a natural antihistaminic
that helps combating asthma and
high fever.
11. Having sex regularly drops
the cholesterol level, balancing
the ratio good cholesterol: bad
cholesterol.
12. The hormones released while
we have sex helps both men and
women; estrogen protects a
woman’s heart but on the long
term, it can be efficient also
against Alzheimer’s disease and
osteoporosis while testosterone
strengthens the bones and
muscles.
13. Sex is not beneficial not only
for the heart, but also for the
blood circulation, especially in the
brain, because of the increased
heart rate and deep breathing.
14. The sexual activity lowers the
risk of getting colds and the flu.
1-2 intercourses weekly means
30 % higher levels of the
antibody immunoglobulin A, that
spurs the immune system.
15. Sex leads to a better control
of the bladder, by strengthening
the pelvis muscles controlling the
flow of urine.
16. After orgasm, especially in the
evening, we become sleepy. This
is the effect of some good sex: it
increases sleep quality. Following
an orgasm, the body of both
males or females becomes
completely relaxed, so they may
have a good deep sleep.
17. Sex fights cancer! Various
researches have shown that a
high ejaculation frequency and
sexual activity are linked to a
lower risk of prostate cancer
later in life. A study found out
that men who ejaculated 13 to
20 times monthly presented a
14% lower risk of prostate
cancer than men who ejaculated
on average, between 4 and 7
times monthly for most of their
adult life. Those ejaculating over
21 times a month presented a
33% decreased risk of
developing prostate cancer than
the baseline group
