Sex is an important factor in our life. It also plays a vital role in each and every one of us mostly for adults because it helps us psychologically, physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally as well as in our health.
Sex and sexuality are a part of every person most especially with the person’s right age. Aside from reproduction, sex can be about intimacy and pleasure. Sexual activity, penile-vaginal intercourse (PVI), or masturbation, can offer many shocking benefits to all facets of your life, According to Healthline.
Here are some of the shocking and unexpected benefits of having active sex life that you should know:
- Improves Immune System
Sex can improve and strengthen our Immune System. Frequent sex or having sex one to two times a week will have more immunoglobulin A (IgA) in their saliva. Immunoglobulin A is an antibody that plays a critical and vital role in our immune function in the mucous membranes. It prevents illnesses and is the first line of defense against human papillomavirus or HPV.
- Improves Heart Health
An active sex life is the good form of exercise that is good for the heart. A number of studies have found that your risk of dying from a heart disease such as stroke or heart attack goes down 45 percent less as the frequency of your good orgasms increase over time. Sex can also help in keeping your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance.
- Better Sleep
Having active sex life can help you to have a better sleep. Your body releases oxytocin, also called the “love” or “intimacy” hormone, and endorphins during an orgasm. The combination of these hormones can help you sleep better.
- Lessen Stress
Active sex life offers lessening stress in our body. Sex generates your body to release its natural “feel-good chemicals,” assisting to ease stress and boost pleasure, calm and self-esteem. Sexual arousal releases these brain chemicals that race up your brain’s pleasure and reward system. Sex and intimacy can also help in the improvement of your self-esteem and happiness, too.
- Better and Happier Mood
Active sex also gives better and happier mood. It’s not surprising that you’ve got a more positive outlook if you have an active sex life. There are biochemicals that justify for having improved mood as a sex benefit, from the neurotransmitters that may be released during healthy sex to the mood enhancers contained in semen itself.
Active Sex can also help you to avoid cancers such as prostate cancer, lessen or relief pain, it gives you glowing skin, boosts your Libido and most especially it improves relationships.
There is nothing wrong having an active sex life as long as you practice safe sex and if it’s not against the law of loyalty and fidelity. Sex not only feels good. It can also be good for you.
