Is Sex Really Healthy?

Sex can work wonders to your health, skin, and well-being. It’s a light cardiovascular exercise but it also does so many other things for you! Here are some reasons on why sex is an absolute must for your health.

 

  1. Improved heart health. Just like any physical activity, sex is good for your heart. Studies have proven that your risk of dying from a heart disease event such as stroke or heart attack goes down as the frequency of your good orgasms increase over time. If you’re ‘worrying’ about the exertion involving sex, don’t worry. Studies show that the most intense sex moments are about the same as walking 4 to 6 miles an hour.

  1. Sweet pain relief. Just looking at your significant other can help ease pain. When anesthesiologists showed people taking part in a study photos of their romantic partners or photos of attractive strangers, they found that their partners dulled out the experience of pain. Even though you might think pain is a barrier to sex, consider this one sex benefit worth the time and effort: take a moment to really look at your lover. Other studies have found that women may get some relief from menstrual cramps through a good orgasm.
