In case you need more reasons to have s*x, there are some surprising health benefits of s*x for men that might just motivate you to grab your partner. Having s*x can provide some of the same benefits you get from exercise, plus s*x is good for your relationship, your heart, and your prostate.
1. s*x improves your relationship
It makes perfect sense that making love will help you feel closer and more connected to your partner. There are scientific reasons for this. When you have an climax there is an increase in the hormone oxytocin. This love hormone makes you feel bonded, empathetic, and closer to your partner.
2. s*x improves heart health
Having s*x is not just good for your love life. It is good for your heart too. According to one study, men who have s*x at least twice a week are 45% less likely to develop heart disease compared to men who have s*x less frequently (once a month or less). s*xual intercourse is also linked with a lower blood pressure.
3. s*x provides stress relief
Having s*x causes your body to release chemicals that help you feel good, ease stress, and boost self-esteem. Stress can negatively affect your health in many ways and cause testosterone to dip, so s*x makes a fun, natural stress reliever.
4. s*x helps with pain relief
The release of all those “feel good” hormones also reduces or blocks pain. s*x can help relieve headaches, back pain, leg pain, and arthritis. So next time your partner says, “Not tonight, I have a headache,” just show him or her this article.
5. s*x improves immunity
Having s*x one to two times per week produces higher levels of the antibody immunoglobin A. This important antibody helps your body fight off harmful organisms, keeping you healthier.
6. s*x helps you sleep
Who cannot benefit from better sleep? There is a reason why men often drift off to sleep after s*x. The “love hormone” oxytocin helps promote sleep, plus after doing the deed, the body releases another hormone called prolactin. Prolactin induces relaxation, helping you to fall asleep faster. Better sleep means you will be able to manage your stress better. Plus getting eight hours of sleep at night also helps with your testosterone production.
7. s*x boosts testosterone
One of the ways to naturally boost your testosterone level is to have s*x. Having a healthy and normal testosterone level is good for your heart, bones, muscles, energy, and concentration.
8. s*x is a form of exercise
s*x can be a significant form of exercise for men, burning 4 calories per minute, boosting heart rate, and strengthening muscles. s*xual moves can help you maintain balance and flexibility. You can also exercise to improve your performance with s*x exercises designed for men.
9. s*x maintains length
Plus, having s*x exercises your man-hood. Why is that important? Well, here’s something that you may not know… it’s the kind of exercise that helps maintain length, partly by frequently stretching out the tissue.
10. s*x improves prostate health
One of the best health benefits of having regular s*x is in reducing the risk of prostate cancer and other prostate conditions such as prostatitis. In fact most men are surprised and pleased to learn that they can use s*x as a treatment for prostatitis. Having s*x flushes toxins out of the prostate.
11. s*x boosts libido
The more frequently you have s*x, the more likely you are to want more.
If these health benefits of s*x do not motivate you to get busy or you have lost interest in s*x, there are a few health issues you need to check. Low libido or erectile dysfunction (ED) could be due to stress or psychological problems, it could indicate a relationship problem, or it could be an issue with hormone imbalance. Experiencing ED could also be an early sign of heart disease.
Talk to your doctor about these issues so that you can get the right help and get back on track for having a healthy and enjoyable s*x life. Things you can try at home are managing your stress, eating well, exercising regularly, and taking natural supplements that boost libido.
