Lifestyle Health Benefits of Sex

Most people probably started reading this because of their dirty minds. That is totally fine but I do want to go on about why sex is a necessary part of our lives. Here’s what I researched.

Health Benefits of Sex

Sex is actually good for your Immune System

Yes. I said it. Sex makes you literally feel better physically. No it is not the cure to cancer or any disease, but studies show that the body fights off germs, viruses, and other bodily intruders from the bodies of those getting it popping on the regular. Now by no means am I saying if you get the flu hit up bae for the cure. You need to still eat healthy, exercise, drink water, and get rest. When you have sex 1-2 times per week your body develops significantly higher levels of immunoglobulin A. Immunoglobulin A is your body’s first line of defense to fight of sickness. It lowers the amount of times your body has to actually use it’s immune system. Now hopefully after reading this you don’t use this as your next pick up line.

Sex counts as a form of Exercise

Now don’t get it twisted. Sex is not going to replace a Glo Up workout, however sex does use five calories per minute. So depending on how long it lasts… You can burn a nice amount of calories. Going by the scientific average of how long the average sexual encounter lasts, it won’t be more than 7-10 minutes so basically you’ll burn off that Hershey Kiss you ate for foreplay. Consistency is key though. Those calories add up.

Sex improves Sleep

Having troubles sleeping? Get laid. This one may seem obvious. It seems that right after you “finish”, you seem a little tired and knock out almost immediately. Well this is because after you orgasm, the biochemical prolactin is released into the body which causes the feeling of relaxation the release of stress. With this being said sleeping actually increases your sexual desire. According to Nicholas Bakalar of the New York Times, for women sleep can actually increase lubrication. So the more you sleep the better chance you got that wet. Which actually brings me to my next point.

Sex increases you Libido

For those who don’t know what libido is it is your sexual desire. 
For women, having sex ups vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity, she says, all of which make sex feel better and help you crave more of it. So basically the more you do it the more you want it.

Truth or Lie: Sperm has health benefits

Truth (kind of). Yes, in fact it is true that sperm does have benefits to it other than creating another human. In fact it is actually a natural anti-depressant, reduces anxiety, and contains over 200 separate proteins, as well as vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, calcium, chlorine, citric acid, fructose, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, vitamin B12, and zinc. I was really hoping it contained vitamin D just for the laugh. Now don’t get it twisted though, the amount of nutrients in sperm is not a big deal so men don’t walk away from this article thinking you contain all the vitamins and health benefits the ladies need.
