Having regular sex will improve your health, relax you and help you get to sleep. So if you switch up regular sex to daily sex then all these unexpected benefits of having sex will lead you to live a healthy and happy life.
Don’t forget that sex is a form of exercise, you’ll have noticed that your heart rate will increase and therefore you will be burning calories. Whilst a good variety of workouts is essential to your wellbeing, don’t forget this one from your activities 😉
Stronger pelvic muscles
When you have sex you are using loads of different muscles and your pelvic muscles get a great workout too. Regular sex will maintain a strong bladder and bowel function. Other muscles that get a workout are your quads and your upper body. It really does keep you healthy!
Build up your immunity
Sex can boost your immunity and immunoglobulin A, an antigen that fights the flu increases when you have regular sex. So the next time that you feel like you might be getting a cold, you know what you need to do! Having regular sex will keep you immune so another reason to keep at it.
You have probably heard about the word endorphins which are more commonly recognised as ‘happy hormones’ that are produced when you have sex. Your body also produces dopamine, a substance that fights stress hormones and also, oxytocin, which is a desire enhancing hormone. So if you feel stressed or anxious and taking deep breaths isn’t helping, then sex is your answer.
A healthy heart
We have already said that sex is a good form of exercise and helps you to burn calories. Sex is also good for your heart too and your chances of a heart attack or stroke will be reduced significantly with regular sex.
Helps you to sleep
Struggling to sleep? This one ties back in with the de-stress aspect as a lot of the reasons for why we can’t get to sleep at night relates back to stress and/or anxiety. With sex being a great form of exercise too, you’ll feel even more relaxed and tired after. After men ejaculate they become lethargic and this will help them to drift off to sleep.
Sex produces various hormones that are said to help with your menstrual cycle. With regular sex the hormones will be regulating your cycle into a regular rhythm. With sex helping to reduce stress, fewer women will miss their periods due to stress. Sometimes a very irregular cycle can lead to stress which puts you into a circle of not having sex because you are so stressed. So remember that having sex will help relieve this stress!
Better to conceive
Regular sex will obviously increase your chances of conceiving. Also regular sex will replace the old sperm in the testicles making sure that you get all the best swimmers. The volume of semen also increases with regular sex too.
Lowers high blood pressure
Getting a good hug is said to lower your blood pressure but sex has been linked with it too. Regular sex can lower your diastolic blood pressure, that’s the bottom number when you read your blood pressure.
Whilst it can’t help with all pain, back pain for example, if you regularly have migraines or maybe really struggle with arthritic pain then you may find that sex makes these pains less. Studies have found that those with arthritis and having regular sex experienced less pain.
You will have spotted through this list that a lot of them are related to each other with stress and exercise being main themes. You will also have been reminded that regular sex is very good exercise which will obviously help you long term for your heart, bones and blood pressure. Quite a lot of people seem to forget that sex is a great calorie burner so for those who can’t fit in any time to go running or go to the gym, so you don’t even need to leave the bed for a workout.
Whilst there were a lot on this list that I did know before there were some that I didn’t know so hopefully they will help you too.
So if you need another excuse for more sex, remember this list and keep on staying healthy!
