Have you been on the search for a way to feel better both inside and out, help your heart, feel healthier, and get closer to your partner? It may seem like an out-of-this-world request and only be fulfilled with some magic pill or spell, but you’d be wrong. There is one simple way to help all those things come true. Sex.
Yes, sex can be the answer to all those problems. While sex may feel amazing, it can also bring along amazing health benefits. Here is a look at a few things to keep in mind when getting in between the sheets.
1. Lowers Stress
The act of being with your partner in any capacity, along with sex itself, can help in reducing stress. Both can help raise endorphins and other hormones in the body that help boost our moods and lower anxieties. Sex can also lead to lower blood pressure in stressful circumstances. So, if you have a huge presentation at work the next day, you may want to block out your night or morning for some time in the bedroom.
2. Lowers Depression
In definition, sex can boost your mood and release those “feel good” emotions that can help battle depression. By having sex at least once a week, you release positive hormones into your system, raise your self-esteem, and grow a connection with your partner. All three of these things can help against depression and negative thoughts.
Sex can be compared to a brisk walk or riding a bike if we are talking exercise lingo. This means that sex can help burn calories and possibly help with weight or other bodily issues. For men, it could be common to burn four calories per minute, and women may lose around three calories. And I think we can all agree that sex is more fun than the treadmill.
4. A Smiling Face
After sex, I think we all leave with a smile on our face and a positive outlook on whatever the rest of the day may bring. This is not only because we had some fun with our partner, but because sex itself can bring out mood enhancers. This gleeful look on the world could last up to 48 hours for most people.
5. Bond with Your Partner
Another hormone brought out during sex is oxytocin, and you may feel stronger feelings of intimacy and love for your partner. This could lead you two to feel even closer than before, as you experience that “honeymoon” feeling once again. The bond with your partner is one of the most important parts of sex, and that bond can only grow when you have sex.
6. Sleep Better
Don’t get disheartened if you see that your partner seems to fall asleep almost immediately after sex. If anything, that means that the sex was terrific for them. Orgasms will release a hormone called prolactin which will cause the person to feel sleepy and relaxed and lead to them falling asleep relatively quickly and sleeping very well. You and your partner may also feel more refreshed and awake in the morning. Sleep can also go the other way around, meaning if you get enough sleep usually, your sexual drive will increase.
7. Raise Self Esteem
Commonly, each party will have higher self-esteem after having regular sex. Not only does sex bring out those positive endorphins, but it will also help you feel healthier on the outside. This can lead to raised self-esteem, and like a self-fulfilling prophecy, increased self-esteem will lead to more sex. It is like a circle of good feelings.
8. Increase Your Libido
By having sex, you will raise your desire to have sex. That may sound backward and strange, but it is true. For women, having sex will increase blood flow, vaginal lubrication, elasticity, and all of those factors will make sex more fun and lead to you wanting to have it more. So, if you are looking for a way to raise your libido, it could start by having sex in the first place.
9. Heart Health
For both men and women, sex can significantly benefit the heart. Regular sex can lead to a lessened risk of heart disease, strokes, or heart attacks. Like typical exercise, sex can help raise your heart rate and get your blood pumping. This can help you stay healthy and stray away from possible heart disease. Sex can also keep estrogen and testosterone levels balanced in men and women.
10. The Glow
It is not a myth that after sex, you have a certain glow to you. Having regular sex can help make you feel and look younger as well as give you a beautiful glow to your skin. This can be from the better mood, stress relief, or your blood rate pumping, but no matter what, that glow is there and is stunning.
