1. Sex improves your fitness.
Yep, S ex counts as exercise. According to a 2010 study published in The American Journal of Cardiology, S exual activity is comparable to a modest workout on a treadmill. A good romp keeps your body fit and can burn anywhere from 85 to 250 calories, depending on the length and vigor of the session. Not only will an all-night pleasurefest workout your ticker, but also workout your back, b*tt and thigh muscles. Breaking a sweat in bed as you thrust during S ex can also help sculpt your abs and ensure you are physically fit and ready for the day.
2 Lowers Heart Attack Risk
A good sex life is good for your heart. Besides being a great way to raise your heart rate, sex helps keep your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance. “When either one of those is low you begin to get lots of problems, like osteoporosis and even heart disease,” Pinzone says. Having sex more often may help. During one study, men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who had sex rarely.
3 Sex keeps you young.
It has been said that people who have $ex three times a week look between four and seven years younger because s*x is an aerobic form of exercise which promotes skin renewal. Scientists explain that blood being pumped around the body during s*x helps push up fresher skin cells to the surface of the skin, thereby giving a younger appearance.
4 Sex reduces risk of prostate cancer.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer. The study revealed you don’t even need a partner to reap this benefit since self service and nocturnal emission were also factored in the equation. Obviously, there are many factors that affect the risk of cancer, but having more S ex won’t hurt.
5 Sex Helps Your Immune System.
Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that their students who stated they had sex at least twice a week had higher levels of particular antibodies than those who had no sex at all. During sex, antigens like immunoglobulin A are released which are proven to fight the common cold and even flu! Even more good news: the more frequently you engage in sex the more antigens will be released and the healthier you’ll get.
