The Benefits of Sex
I know a lot of us like sex. It feels good physically, satisfies that animal urge inside of us and it helps express the feelings that we have for our partner. But here are some other reasons to enjoy sex that we sometimes forget about:
You know that “morning-after glow” when people just look at you and can tell that you got laid last night? Well, it’s not just your imagination, you really do look better after having sex. Sex is healthy. And, when you’re body is healthy, you look healthier and more attractive.
Sex can even help you look younger. You may say, to a person that you know, or that you have had others say to you: “What do you do that makes you looks so young?”
That youthful glow can be attributed to a combination of stress relief, better mood, and the flush of blood under your skin which is a natural part of the arousal process. This means that the ones who enjoy sex more often tend to look younger overall.
Less Stress, Better Blood Pressure
Having sex could lower your stress and your blood pressure. People who have intercourse more often responded better to stress than those who haven’t.
I mean, if you really think about it, you can actually tell if that stressed out colleague or boss in the office is having sex or not. And you think, “If only they could get laid they would just lighten up!”
From less stress to better mood, which ties into people having sex usually being in a much better mood.
Haven’t you noticed the difference between grumpy, uptight people and the happy, positive people out there?
Well after sex, there are biochemical rationales which improve the mood. The neurotransmitters that may be released during healthy sex to the mood enhancers are contained in the semen itself.
Great sex begins with self-esteem. If the sex is loving, connected, and what you want, it raises your own self-esteem.
Of course, you don’t have to have lots of sex to feel good about yourself. Your self-esteem is all about “you” not someone else.
But if you’re already feeling good about yourself, a great sex life may help you feel even better.
A good healthy and long relationship starts in the bedroom. Having sex and orgasms boosts levels of the hormone oxytocin, the so-called love hormone, which helps people bond and build trust.
If you are having trouble in your relationship, take a good look at your bedroom activities. You may need to schedule in a sex life after years of having children or just a busy schedule.
But if you care about each other enough to make it work, you will work on the bedroom activities and have sex more often together. And, now you know there is a real scientific reason why sex can help your relationship. Let the Orgasms boost your oxytocin & help it bond you back together.
Just like happy, positive people who are in great moods, sex is also linked with a feeling of generosity. Higher oxytocin levels can make you feel more generous toward your partner, but it may just make you more generous in nature.
Sex Enhances Sense of Smell
Having sex helps your sense of smell. Having sexual intercourse stimulates the pituitary gland which forms prolactin, which stimulates the part of your brain involved with smell.
Sex Boosts Immunity
Having sex helps to fight off infections and could help you heal faster. There’s a study that proved people who have sex one to two times a week, actually have an increase in their immune function.
Sex can increase the number of antibodies your body produces that fight off the germs that make you sick.
Sex Promotes Weight Loss
Moderate sex, such as 60 minutes over the course of a week, can add up to 100 calories burned.
