- Less stress. Healthy sex offers the same soothing effects of sugary comfort foods when it comes to reducing stress. Researchers theorize that stress reduction occurs because the pleasure pathways are ignited by sex. It looks like the effects is a little more lasting than we think.
- Cancer prevention. Research suggests that men may reduce their risk of prostate cancer proportionately to their good orgasms and stimulation of their testicles. While more research is needed, this would certainly be a welcomed sex benefit.
- Healthier Skin. Does more sex make your skin better? Yes. Sex releases a key compound in the body that is good for all kinds of things-including improving your complexion. During sex, your body produces a chemical called DHEA(dehydroepiandrosterone). It boosts the immune system, and gives you healthier skin. It may even decrease depression (like we didn’t know that).
- Better sleep. You can just put away the chamomile tea. When the tea isn’t doing its job, bring on the sex. Sex helps relieve anxiety and stress better. It’s a proven fact–sex helps with sleep.
So the more sex you have the better. It’s an exercise many of us appreciate and really love! The more you have the better you’ll feel. So next time you’re stressed out, just do it.
