How Having Sex Can Make You Healthier
Just because you're single, does not mean that you cannot have sex, right? Well, as long as you're doing it safely, that is. Don't let your single status stop you from enjoying the perks that go hand-in-hand with each sexual experience. If you were unaware at just how beneficial blissfully orgasmic sex really is to your health, then take a look through these perks and see which of them will be best for you!
1. Helps You Sleep Better
When you have a rigorous sexual experience, your body releases oxytocin. This, in turn, allows your body to sleep more soundly and lets you fall asleep faster. The more deep sleep your body is allowed to get, the healthier you are all around. Plus, your body is worn out and needs the sleep to recover and prepare for the next round!
2. Great Cardio Exercise
If you have been considering joining a gym to get a good cardio workout, you may want to hold on to those gym memberships. Having sex can increase your heart rate and pump blood harder and faster through your system, allowing you the same benefits of a solid cardio workout at the gym. The benefit is that there is no monthly membership in order to get this type of workout. The only expense most people have is whatever method of protection they invest in.
3. Lowers Blood Pressure
The endorphins released through sex lower your overall stress levels, and allow you the benefit of decreasing your blood pressure. You will be able to handle life's ups and downs better with your blood pressure staying under control, and the risk of heart disease can then decrease. The more often you have sex, and the longer that each encounter lasts, the stronger the health effects are for all of the participants.
4. Increases Your Immune System
The healthier your body is in general, the stronger your immune system usually is. This means that if you work out regularly, you are giving your body the benefits it needs to be strong and fight off whatever it comes into contact with. Ideally, you want to make sure your immune system is strong if you're going to be kissing and licking another person's body, just in case they are coming down with a cold.
5. Helps You Experience less Pain
Your body produces oxytocin during sex, which boosts how your body feels. This means that your nerve endings experience less pain after you have had sex. You will not feel as much pain from arthritis, headaches, and even minor injuries. However, you may want to consider more activities like oral sex if the pain is coming from a part of your body that could be worsened by having sex.
The endorphins you feel after sex, specifically after your orgasm, give your entire body a boost, so enjoy all the sex you can, single or not! The old beliefs that required a person to be married to have sex have long since passed, so don't be afraid to do what you need to do to get healthier. Just make sure you protect yourself from everything that could be sexually transmitted. If the point of your experience is to get healthy and stay that way, then the last thing you want to do is go about it irresponsibly and get yourself sick in the process.
