7 Benefits Of Good Sex

Update Date: Apr 29, 2016 04:20 AM EDT

Having a good sex does not only bring you closer to your partner. It also has tons of healthful benefits that can make you and your partner glow, go and grow! Here are some of the benefits of having a good sex.

Stress Reliever

A research from the University of the West of Scotland says that having sex at least once every two weeks makes you better in managing stressful situations. During sex, feel-good hormones called endorphins and oxytocin are being released, activating pleasure centers in the brain. It will then create feelings of relaxation and intimacy that alleviates depression and anxiety, shared Women's Health.

Forget About Sleeping Pills

A good sex and a good orgasm help release the same endorphins and a hormone called prolactin. Endorphins relax the mind and the body while the prolactin level is naturally higher when sleeping, making sex better than sleeping pills. However, you might feel more energized after a highly active sex so try to avoid acrobatics and go for more relaxed positions.

Keep That Ibuprofen

Too much pills is bad for your health. In case of annoying headache, throw that pill back to the medicine cabinet, call your partner and get naked. Yes, good sex is an effective pain killer. According to a study, 50 percent of women who are suffering with migraine reported relief after an orgasm. Endorphin resembles morphine and effectively relieves pain, said Cindy M. Meston, Ph.D., director of the Sexual Psychophysiology Laboratory at the University of Texas.

A Good Sex A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

Researchers found that sex increases an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA). It keeps you away from diseases and fights off cold and flu. So the next time you feel like getting sick, call your partner and get some steamy and sexy treatment.

It Keeps Men Away From Prostate Cancer

According to Web MD, men who frequently ejaculate are less likely to get prostate cancer, says a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It is not necessarily to have sex on this one as masturbation and nocturnal emission both induce ejaculation.

It Makes Your Heart Healthier

A good sex raises the heart rate and keeps the balance between your estrogen and testosterone levels. Imbalance with these hormones causes heart disease and osteoporosis as well. A study said that having sex at least twice a week reduces the risk of heart attack by 50 percent.
