Johnny Carson is quoted as saying that he knew “a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, & rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself!” Aside from being a lot of fun, and much more enjoyable than a visit to the doctor, sex each and every day has many fantastic health benefits.
The immune system is your first line of defense against getting sick. Well, daily sex is like an ‘upgrade’ to your immune system, the more you have, the bigger the benefits are! Sex has been scientifically proven to boost your body’s natural defenses, making you better able to fight off infections and sickness.
Another fantastic benefit of daily sex would be the effect that it has on your blood pressure. Specifically, sexual intercourse (not masturbation), lowers your systolic blood pressure (that would be the first [top] number on your blood pressure reading).
Really, who doesn’t love what a little exercise can do for their body? It gets the heart pumping, releases endorphins (chemicals that make you feel good), and burns about four more calories per minute than sitting alone on the couch would. Most doctors recommend getting exercise for at least twenty minutes per daywhat is more fun than getting that through daily sex?
In addition to exercise and helping with blood pressure, sex has demonstrated its ability to lower the risk of heart attack, prostate cancer, and low libido. Plus, it miraculously lessens pain by releasing special hormones. A powerful orgasm can help with pain in your lower back, legs, arthritis, and even headaches. Think of it like a much more enjoyable dose of aspirin.
Stress is incredibly common among men and women everywhere, and all that stress wreaks havoc with your body, your health and your overall well-being. But sex, especially passionate and intimate encounters, helps to ease that stress by being close to someone else, allowing your brain to release soothing chemicals to the rest of you. On top of that, the afterglow of a great sexual encounter has been proven to improve the quality of sleep. Waking up well rested is one of the best ways to keep your libido high, as well as staying healthy and possibly even being more successful.
The facts speak for themselves. Why deprive yourself of the amazing benefits of daily sex? Drinking, smoking, and rich food might be unhealthy, but science has shown that sex with a loving partner has some amazing anti-aging health benefits!
