The ‘process’ of making love is a type of a physical activity. While you are in this process or activity, the physiological changes in your body are similar to those when you do workouts.
That is why you burn off calories during the intercourse.These are the figures about calories burnt: Having sex three times a week for 15 minutes will make you burn 7.500 calories in a year-the equivalent of jogging 75 miles!
These are 15 reasons to have sex today!
Do you find deep breathing exercises failing in your stress reduction? If so, try to substitute them with sex. Did you know that when you have sex your body produces dopamine, a substance that fights stress hormones, endorphins, also called ‘happiness hormones’ and oxytocin, a ‘sex-drive hormone’ secreted by the pituitary gland?
Stressed life deteriorates your physical and mental health. Instead of thinking of many prescribed drugs to uplift you, you may engage yourself in having a better sexual life with your present partner. Sex simply slashes the stress effects!
2. Lower blood pressure
Exchanging sexual intimacy with your beloved regulates your blood pressure too. More precisely, sex reduces the diastolic blood pressure, which is the bottom number in the monitor of your blood pressure apparatus.
There is a Scottish study which found that sexually active men and women coped well with stress and had lower blood pressure compared with those who abstained. Researchers at Brigham Young University in the US also found a link between frequent intercourse and lower blood pressure.
3. You get your immune system boosted
Immunoglobulin A,or IgA, an antigen that fights the flu increases when the frequency of sexual activity increases. Try to fight the sniffles and snivels with a good foreplay and even a better sexual act. A study found that people who have sex more often than once a week have 30% higher levels of the antibody IgA than those who do not.
4. Healthier heart
If you want your heart to have normal heart beat that will keep strokes and heart attacks at bay, you just have to enjoy your sexual play. The Scientists with New England Research Institute were interested in the effect of sex on the heart.
They reached a conclusion that sexually active men are 45 % less likely to experience cardiovascular diseases. But the study failed to establish the effect of sex on a woman’s heart. I guess it takes more than sex to keep a woman’s heart healthy!
5. You get pain relief
Do you suffer from severe migraines or arthritis?An arthritis specialist from Philadelphia, named George E.Erlich, examined arthritis and sex in his study. Based on his patients’ testimonials, he is specific that sexually active patients experienced less pain.
Muscle seizures during sex can improve circulation throughout the body and beat out the aches. Yet, people in their discreet years must be pretty careful about this. Severe back pain or fits of chronic conditions could mean you have had it enough.
The pleasure is the measure!
6. Both males and females boost their fertility
There is no better way of boosting fertility than sex. You may be on hormonal therapy, but the intercourse has proven the best therapy. Yes, the good old-fashioned way of conception cannot be easily replaced!
