Sex is GREAT for your health, and we should all be doing a lot more of it!
Whether it’s mental health, cancer, cardiovascular health, stress, or anything else you’d care to think of, more sex = better life!
Sex reduces the risk of cancer: The Journal of the American Medical Association says that men who ejaculated more frequently were less likely to get prostate cancer (with apologies to all of you guys who practice Zen ejaculation abstinence).
Sex reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke: The Department of Epidemiology at the New England Research Center says, men who have sex twice or more per week were at a much lower risk for cardiovascular disease than men who have sex once per month or less… (and for you fellow science-geeks, yes, this data accounts for and adjusts for the fact that age or a pre-existing cardiovascular condition might cause a man to desire less frequent sex).
Sex further lowers heart attack risk by balancing testosterone and estrogen levels in the blood: During one study, men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who had sex rarely.
Sex improves the immune system: Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that college students who had sex once or twice a week had higher levels antibodies compared to students who had less sex.
Sex improves sleep, and if you’d care to Google it, improved sleep is a powerful factor in a huge array of health related benefits from immune system to heart disease to psychological well-being.
Sex eases stress, and if you’d care to Google it, improved stress is a lot like improved sleep!
Sex improves bladder control in the elderly.
Sex lowers blood pressure.
Sex improves emotional well-being.
Sex reduces chronic pain and studies have shown that it effectively reduces the pain associated with migraines.
Sex counts as exercise.
Sex improves relationships and feelings of connectedness and closeness.
Sex improves overall satisfaction with life.
In other words, let’s all commit to having more sex, better sex, and healthier, more enjoyable lives.
