Why You Should Considering Having Sex Regularly

Sex is a good thing, not only for partners who want to bond more with each other, but also for the individual's health. This is, of course, provided that sex is done in moderation. However, it is important to keep in mind that having too much sex can take a bad toll on you and your health.

Below are some of the health benefits of sex:

1.It's a great form of exercise. Not only is it an enjoyable kind of exercise, but if you are one who's into trying different sexual positions, then you're using your different muscle groups.

2.It improves muscle and bone strength. Like any other form of exercise, sex puts our bones and muscles to use, giving them a strengthening workout of sorts.

3.It betters your cardiovascular health. It does so by increasing blood flow throughout the body and positively changing the good to bad cholesterol ratio.

4.It's a great stress reliever. Thanks to the oxytocin released by the body during sexual activity that releases endorphins that induce relaxation.

5.It improves blood oxygen levels. A healthy session of love making can increase the amount of oxygen in the cells. This helps keep our organs and tissues working perfectly.

6.It acts as an analgesic. Sex triggers the release of oxytocin in the body. This hormone increases one's pain threshold, providing significant relief from pain.

7.It offers prostate protection in men. Regular ejaculation is helpful in draining the fluid buildup that is said to cause various kinds of prostate-related problems.

8.It helps in women's hormone production. Instead of taking hormone replacement pills for estrogen deficiency, having regular sex sessions can naturally increase a woman's estrogen level. This will, in turn, help protect her heart and keep her vaginal tissues supple.

Again, it is important to emphasize at this point, that none of these benefits will be attainable if you have too much sex. Once or twice a week should be enough to give you the benefits you need from sex.
