Sex: The Best Cure-all Ever?

Laughter is Good for You…But Sex is Even Better!


According to researchers, laughter may very well be the best medicine – but sex is even better (and more fun!).  The famed “afterglow” can last up to 48 hours – even if you only spent a few minutes making love!

But there’s more to it than that — there are other benefits derived from a healthy sex life…but what?

What’s Sex Got to Do With It?

According to researchers, sex has plenty to do with good health; some of the benefits are:

  • Cures pain – a quickie could be far more effective in getting a headache than paracetamol(!) – intimacy increases the production of the hormone oxytocin which eases pain.
  • Reduce wrinkles – not only will your eyes sparkle, but your skin really does glow! Lovemaking increases the amount of estrogen women produce, thereby plumping up their skin a bit (go easy ladies — or else you’ll be beautiful and he’ll be out of commission!).
  • Burns calories – Five calories per minute are burned; it is estimated that 30 minutes is the equivalent of going for a 15-minute run — and you don’t even have to leave home!
  • Improve your immunity – Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania, USA found that students who had sex twice a week had higher levels of antibodies than those who were less active.
  • Strenghten the pelvic floor — Bedroom activity helps to tone the pelvic floor muscles (doing Kegel exercises will help too!); this helps with improved orgasms and helps reduce accidental leakages as women get older.

Love Well….Live Long

Among the many benefits of a healthy sex life – from anti-aging to having a healthy heart and living longer, it’s also a great anti-depressant and motivator!
