Couple making love
You know that feeling you get after a night of fun, rough romping? That above-the-clouds feeling of euphoria, the heightened sensations of pleasure, that goofy, extended smile that remains plastered on your face? What about that physical glow, feeling like all your muscles have worked out and relaxed?

That’s because sεx is awesome.

There’s no doubt that sεx is one of life’s most wondrous pleasures. There’s just so much to do, so much to explore. Turns out that the benefits of sεx extend beyond just feeling good, but affect your physical being just as much as your mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Here are some benefits of getting laid.

Studies done in the U.S. and England have revealed that couples who have sεx at least 2 times a week had significantly lower stress levels. This was monitored by putting participants into highly stressful situations like public speaking or intense exercise and checking their diastolic blood pressure and catecholamine levels afterward. The couples having more frequent sεx showed better levels. Hmmm, interesting.

Having sεx makes you want to have more sεx, which makes you more inclined to have sεx. For women, having sεx ups vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity—all of which makes sεx feel better and makes you crave more of it. This will definitely revitalize your libido.

Sεx also boosts the immune system. The same studies also found that having sεx at least 2 times per week helps boost the amount of immunoglobulin in your bloodstream. This helps combat colds, flu viruses, and other illnesses.

Sεx can also be a great way to burn calories. A recent study showed that thirty minutes of sεx burns 85 calories or more. It may not sound like much, but it adds up! Every little bit helps; plus, this exercise is enjoyable. 40 to 30-minute sessions will burn 3,570 calories, so burning off those pounds may be within reach after all! Also, lowered stress and lowered weight can lead to a reduction in cardiovascular disease. Amazingly, this reduction can be quite significant. The study in men actually showed that, when they had sεx two times or more a week, there was a reduction in the risk of fatal heart attack by ½ as compared to those who had sεx less than once a month.

Isn’t this interesting? Who would have thought sεx could have so many positive health benefits.

The studies also found that the frequency of ejaculations in men in their 20’s correlated with a reduction of prostate cancer later in life. The number of partners didn’t matter, but 5 or more ejaculations a week in the 20’s reduced prostate cancer ¹/₃ by. Another study showed that 21 ejaculations or more per month in elderly men (as opposed to 4-7) was also linked to lower rates of prostate cancer.

And listen, ladies, the more orgasms we have, the stronger it makes our pelvic floor muscles, which helps bladder control and frequency issues, especially as we get older. If your pelvic floor muscles are stronger, then you have better bowel control and are better able to hold back gas at those crucial times, oohhlaalaa! The stronger the muscles the stronger the orgasms, too.

During sεx, we release a powerful hormone called oxytocin. This is the hormone that gives us all the warm, loving feelings. Women release it during labor and when breastfeeding, and it helps them bond with their babies and makes breast milk. They have found that when people are given this hormone, they are able to tolerate pain better, and that is why many of us find our headaches, PMS, and arthritis pain improves after sεx. Oxytocin also improves our self-esteem, and that’s why having sεx makes us feel better about ourselves. It has been called the love hormone, and because of that, having sεx can improve intimacy and help us learn to bond and trust. When couples were tested for higher levels, they were shown to be more loving and generous to each other.

The last thing which I think we all know already is loving sεx promotes sound sleep. What a surprise.

So yeah, there are more benefits to getting laid than you think.

Next time you aren’t feeling the best, test it out. Consider whether you have been intimate with a partner or not and pay attention to how your body responds after doing so.

Happy humping!
