Not that any of us really NEED an excuse to have sex. I mean, it’s apart of life that most of us pretty much enjoy as our nighttime extra curriculum activities. But it’s always a good know that having sex helps us in other areas of our lives other than to get pregnant or catch a disease if we’re not practicing safe sex.
According to Women’s Health Magazine, there are some good reasons to having sex on a regular basis, 17 to be exact, other than for pleasure or the sake of conceiving, so here they are!
According to a study at Queens University in Belfast, men who have sex three times a week or more cut their risk of a heart attack and stroke in half.
I guess this does make sense as he will be getting that heart rate up while he’s knocking your boots!
I’ve heard this one before! You can burn up to 200 calories for every 30-minute bumping grind session. So for those of you who like to go 2 and 3 hours long at a time, you can get a better, more fun workout in than hitting the gym.
Get more sleep:
Well, that’s a given. If it’s good when it’s over you’re going straight to sleep anyway. On the healthier side of things, having sex releases more sleep-inducing endorphins. Hmmmm! That’s very interesting. Guess that’s why we fall asleep afterwards.
Boosts your immune system:
Now this one is very interesting. According to research performed by Wilkes University, having sex once or twice a week can boost your immune system by 30%, hence giving you less chances of catching a cold.
Stepping to the mic:
This is a new one to me… Giving your man blow jobs helps protect your teeth??? They say, the zinc, calcium and other minerals in semen help fight against tooth decay… So ladies, I guess you can save a few trips to the dentist by just giving your man some head!
Having sex frequently tones the pelvic muscles that support your uterus, bladder and bowel, giving you more control to hold your pee.
Thank GOD I’m not one who suffers from menstrual cramps, but having sex can alleviate pain from both menstrual cramps as well as arthritis. After having an orgasm, your body is practically swimming in oxytocin. The release of the endorphins is what kills the pain.
Regulates menstrual cycle:
Women who have sex at least once a week are more likely to have regular cycles than those who are either celibate or only have sex every blue moon. INTERESTING!!! So if you suffer from irregular periods, you might want to give up the good more and get that thang to coming monthly as its supposed to.
I think that goes without saying. After sex, I’m always relaxed and like most people I go to sleep. Most of the time before my husband.
You’ll Get More Sex Later Too:
We all know there will come a time when our man’s equipment stops working. He’ll either need help via penis pump or Viagra. Well, according to marriage therapist Michele Weiner, ”The more you have sex, the more likely you’ll be to continue to produce testosterone, one of the primary hormones responsible for sexual desire.” So in other words we pretty much have to give it up all the time to keep those testosterone hormone busy so their equipment will last longer. As the saying goes: “Use it or lose it.”
One of the greatest de-stresses is having sex. I know a lot of times that’s how men claim they get rid of stress so it’s good to know it’s a great stress reliever for us as well. So next time you have a bad day at work or the kids are getting on your nerves, just go jump on top of your man’s wood and let it all out.
Unleash your alter ego:
In the bedroom is the best time to unleash your alter ego. Whether you’re a dominatrix or very aggressive, between the sheets is the perfect time to unveil it. Some men like when women talk dirty and take over.
When you know you’re putting it down in the bedroom and pleasing your mate, it give you more confidence and makes you feel more powerful in other areas of your life.
The more your man ejaculates, the less likely for him to develop prostate cancer.
Great sex makes us much happier people. According to a recent study at National Bureau of Economic research, having sex regularly makes us more happy than having money. A marriage that included regular humping was figured to bring the same levels of happiness as earning an extra $100,000 annually. And they say finances can break up a marriage, hell just have more sex.
An active sex life slows the aging process.
Well we all know sex leads to baby making, but when you’re at term, sex can trigger the onset of labor. Semen contains prostaglandins and when they’re against the cervix, it helps the woman dilate and induce natural labor.
Welp! There you have it. More reasons for you to have sex, as if we needed anymore. Whatever you do, always remember to practice safe sex!!!
