The more joyful sex you have the better you feel in every way


Sex is a great immune system stimulator so whilst you are giving and receiving pleasure and enjoying sex you are actually taking good care of yourself and ensuring you fight off infections too. According to Yvonne K. Fulbright, PhD a Sexologist “Sexually active people take fewer sick days,” What a great bonus. 

People who have regular joyful sex have higher levels of agents that defend your body against bacteria’s, viruses, and other substances that negatively impact on our immunity systems. Researchers have discovered that college students who had sex once or twice a week had higher levels of a certain antibody compared to students who had sex less frequently.

Regular pleasurable sex boosts your libido. According to Lauren Streicher, MD clinical professor of gynaecology at University Feinberg School of Medicine Chicago. Having regular happy sex will make sex better and will improve your libido exponentially. For women, having sex increases vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity, all of which make sex feel better and help you to want more of it. Additionally Joyful Sex improves women’s bladder control. As all sex therapists will affirm a strong pelvic floor is important for avoiding incontinence, something that will affect a significant number of women at some point in their lives. Great sex is a wonderful workout for your pelvic floor muscles. When you have an orgasm, it causes contractions in those muscles, which strengthens them further.

Sex has been shown to lower your blood pressure. Research suggests there is a link between sex and lower blood pressure, says P. Pinzone, MD “There have been many studies,” he says. “One landmark study found that sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure.” That’s the first number on your blood pressure test. How wonderful is that. “

Also attributed to Pinzone who states that Sex is a really great form of exercise, it won’t replace the treadmill, but it counts as significant form of exercise. Research suggests that Sex uses about five calories per minute; it increases your heart rate and uses various muscles. So clear your schedule and make time for this great exercise. As a practicing Sex therapist I can testify personally and professionally that we need to make time for this important aspect of our lives. I suggest you clear your schedule to make time for Sex on a regular basis. As with all forms of exercise consistency helps maximize the benefits. If you have distractions such as children or elderly parents that live with you arrange a date night where you can play undisturbed for this amazing form of exercise.

A good sex life is exceptionally good for your heart. Besides being a great way to raise your heart rate, sex helps keep your oestrogen and testosterone levels in balance. Research suggests that when either one of those is low you begin to get lots of health problems, such as osteoporosis and especially heart disease. Having sex more frequently may help. During one study, research found men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who had sex rarely.

It has been known for hundreds of years in Ayurvedic and Eastern medicine that Sex lessens pain. Louise Hays a metaphysical healer, states that when you are in pain especially a headache try self-pleasuring or having sex with you partner as an orgasm is a great pain reliever.

I believe sex can block and inhibit pain as it releases a hormone that helps raise your pain threshold. Female patients have reported that they found that vaginal stimulation can stop chronic back and leg pain, whilst genital self-stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps, as well as arthritic pain.

Sex can protect men from prostate cancer. Recent studies have shown that men who ejaculated frequently – which was said to be at least 21 times a month were less likely to develop prostate cancer. The studies suggested that sexual intercourse was the most effective and that self-pleasuring also helped provided the man ejaculated.

Sex definitely improves sleep as it helps you to get off to sleep as well as promoting deep sleep. There are good reasons why this has been proven to be true as after orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness says S. Ambardar, MD. Who is a psychiatrist in West Hollywood.

Being close to your partner can additionally soothe stress and anxiety. Ambardar says touching and hugging can release your body’s natural “feel-good hormone oxytocin” Sexual arousal releases a brain chemical that stimulates your brain’s pleasure and reward system. Sex and intimacy can boost your self-esteem and happiness; too, it’s not only a prescription for a healthy life, but a happy one.
