Besides feeling good, and being fun, it seems almost everyone knows that there are healthy benefits to having sex. Sex plays an important part in our lives, emotionally, as well as physically. It’s much more than just a physical release and hormonal discharge, the lack of sex actually has negative effects. Masturbation doesn’t cut it either.  Sex registers with us so strongly that an increase in the frequency registers so positive within our brain that it’s the same as a 50,000 a year increase in income would.   Researchers have found so many health benefits to sex that most of us should consider “doing it” as often as we can!  Happy people have more sex so let’s look at the 10 great reasons to have sex tonight.


1. Sex boosts your immune system

Having an orgasm enhances cells that fight infection by up to 30 per cent. Scientists evaluate immune system response by determining the levels of IGa (antigen immunoglobulin). A recent study done at Wiles University showed that those who had sex once or twice a week had IGa levels that were 30 per cent higher than those who refrained from sex.

However, you should note that those who had sex 3 or more times per week had a lower immunity level than those who abstained from sex.  So regular sex, once or twice a week, means you will have a heightened immune system.


2. Sex relieves menstrual cramps

Orgasms help to relieve the pains from your period by keeping your uterus from being overly sensitive to the hormone like substance, prostaglandin.


3. Sex reduces stress

After orgasm the brain releases endorphins, the hormone that gives you that happy feeling, which decrease stress levels and actually bring on a state of euphoria. You know that feeling of complete relaxation and tranquility after you’ve had great sex? That’s stress relief that is sure to bring on a good night’s sleep afterwards! Find out also how yoga relieves stress.


4. Sex means looking better

It’s true. While having sex a women’s body may as much as double her original level of estrogen. Estrogen is what makes hair shiny and skin softer.


5. Sex can reduce pain

During and after sex your body releases a feel good hormone called oxytocin which, in turn, releases endorphins. Oxytocin is 10 times more effective than Valium. These hormones not only make you feel great but they are natural painkillers. Read more about side effects that usual pain killers may have.

There have been several studies performed which prove that sex and pain reduction go together.
