How Sex Heals Your Body

Sex is not just about pleasure and getting close to your partner, it also has certain health benefits that we have listed below.

Lowers stress

Sex helps to create a balance between our emotional and mental health as it is a great stress buster. After sex, the brain releases endorphins that decrease stress, inducing a state of euphoria, in an individual.

 

Boosts our immune system

Regular lovemaking boosts the body's production of virus fighting chemicals.  Recent research has revealed that regular sex can maintain antibodies at a higher level, thereby protecting us against infection

 

Improves sleep

If you suffer from insomnia, then try having sex before you head to bed, as it induces sleep.

 

Promotes heart health

A recent study shows that men who have sex more than twice a week, have a lesser chance of having a heart attack, when compared to men who avoid sex.

 

Balanced hormone level

Have trouble with your menstrual cycle? Then, make  love with your partner, as this will help regulate the menstrual cycle and also decrease cramps as sex helps maintain a balanced hormonal level.

 

Strengthens pelvic muscles

Sex involves the use of several muscles; hence, it can help you develop stronger pelvic muscles. Sex can also help  strengthen your quads, core, and upper back. 

 

Look beautiful

Sex can be a beauty treatment for women, since during intercourse, the estrogen levels double and this makes hair shine and the skin becomes softer.
