SEX! ITS HEALTH BENEFITS . part1

Understanding how sex affects your brain can improve your roll in the hay, and it may also shed light on other parts of your health, says Barry R. Komisaruk, PhD, distinguished professor of psychology at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. The only thing most people know about sex is how good it feels but there is more to it than that so below are some of the health benefits of sex:

1. Boosts Your Libido

Longing for a more lively sex life? “Having sex will make sex better and will improve your libido,” says Lauren Streicher, MD. She is an assistant clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. For women, having sex ups vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity, she says, all of which make sex feel better and help you crave more of it.

2. Sex as a pain reliever

Replace a pain reliever with sex if possible therefore don’t skip sex when you have a headache. A lot of researches have shown that having sexual intercourse may reduce such symptoms. In a 2013 German study, 60% of participants who had migraines and 30% of cluster-headache sufferers who had sex during a headache episode reported partial or total relief. Other studies have found that women who stimulated an area of the G spot had an elevation in pain threshold. “It took greater pain stimulus for them to feel the pain,” says Beverly Whipple, PhD, a professor emerita at Rutgers University who has conducted some research on the topic. Whipple didn’t study why this was so, but other researchers have attributed the effect to oxytocin, the so-called bonding hormone that helps mothers and babies bond and which also has pain-relieving properties.

3. Calories Burner

One may ask is sex a treadmill? No, Sex is  not a treadmill but its a great form of exercise that helps in burning calories. Sex uses about five calories per minute, four more calories than watching TV which means the longer it last, the larger the amount of calories burnt. It bumps up your heart-beat rate and uses various muscles which makes you sweat during the act. On this note you might want to fix sex into your fitness schedule or probably clear your busy schedule and make time for it on regular basis.So get busy!

4. Depression and Stress reliever

A 2002 study out of the University at Albany looked at 300 women and found that those who had sex without a condom had fewer depressive symptoms than women who did use a condom. The researchers hypothesized that various compounds in semen, including oestrogen and prostaglandin, have antidepressant properties, which are then absorbed into the body after sex. Also being close to your partner (touching, hugging, kissing etc.) can release your body’s natural “feel-good hormone which can soothe stress and anxiety. Sex and intimacy can boost your self-esteem and happiness.

5. Improves Sleep

Sex is more likely to make men sleepy than women, and scientists think they know why: The part of the brain known as the prefrontal cortex winds down after ejaculation. This, along with the release of oxytocin and serotonin, may account for the “rolling over and sleep” syndrome in men.  On the other hand “After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness” after sex in women so the next time you are finding it difficult to sleep try it with your partner.
