  • Sex has many health benefits to human beings according to numerous researches
  • A couple is advised to have sex at least twice per week

Are you stressed, unhappy, anxious, totally bored and dealing with fatigue? Did you know that intimacy can be a cure for all this? Having sex has a lot more benefits than you can ever imagine. Here are six amazing reasons as to why you should have sex every day; 

Sex lowers risk of prostate cancer

According to a study at the Boston University of Public Health, frequent ejaculation plays a greater part in lowering prostate cancer. Not ejaculating leads to swelling since the fluid stays in the gland which may later lead to serious problems.

Great stress reliever

During sex with your partner, your body (the brain) releases endorphins (happy hormones) and oxytocin which make you feel better. Oxytocin also helps improve your sexual desire.

Reduces high blood pressure

Wouldn’t it be great if you can reduce high blood pressure without necessarily going for medication? According to the University of Paisley, sex is a great way to reduce high blood pressure. In fact, general intimacy, that is kissing, cuddling and sex, keeps your blood pressure within normal limits.

Healthier cardiovascular system

According to a study that was published in the American Journal of Cardiology, men who had sex two to three times per week had a lower rate of cardiovascular disease compared to those who had it once a month. Sex also helps reduce the chances of heart attacks and strokes.

Best exercise ever

Having sex helps you burn calories, a lot of them. Having sex for thirty minutes three days a week can help you lose up to 2.5 kilograms of fat; which means the more you participate in sex the more the calories you lose. So if you are having issues with your weight and you want to shed some, you have the best answer.

Makes you look younger

According to a Scottish researcher, David, having sex 3 times a week makes you look ten times younger. You can also read his book “Secrets of the Super young” for more information. Sex helps slow the aging process in human beings.
