Sex has a lot of benefits. According to medical specialists sex reduces stress but it gives better blood pressure. That finding comes from a Scottish study of 24 women and 22 men who kept records of their sexual activity. Having sex could lower your stress and your blood pressure. The researchers put them in stressful situations — such as speaking in public and doing the math out loud — and checked their blood pressure.
People who had had intercourse responded better to stress than those who engaged in other sexual behaviors or abstained. Another study found that diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number of your blood pressure) tends to be lower in people who live together and have sex often.
Having sex once or twice a week has been linked with higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A, or IgA, which can protect you from getting colds and other infections.
Beside that sex burns calories. Thirty minutes of sex burns 85 calories or more. It may not sound like much, but it adds up: 42 half-hour sessions will burn 3,570 calories, more than enough to lose a pound. Los Angeles sexologist Patti Britton says, sex is a great mode of exercise. It takes both physical and psychological work, though, to do it well, she says.
It is proved that sex Improves anyone’s heart health. A 20-year-long British study shows that men who had sex two or more times a week were half as likely to have a fatal heart attack than men who had sex less than once a month. Although some older folks may worry that sex could cause a stroke, the study found no link between how often the men had sex and how likely they were to have a stroke.
Having sex and orgasms boosts levels of the hormone oxytocin, the so-called love hormone, which helps people bond and build trust. In a study of 59 women, researchers checked their oxytocin levels before and after the women hugged their partners. The women had higher oxytocin levels if they had more of that physical contact with their partner.
Sex help to build stronger pelvic floor muscles. For women, doing pelvic floor muscle exercises called Kegels may mean more pleasure — and, as a perk, less chance of incontinence later in life. To do a basic Kegel exercise, tighten the muscles of your pelvic floor as if you’re trying to stop the flow of urine. Count to three, then release.
By doing regular sex you can get a gift from Heaven! This is better sleep! The oxytocin released during orgasm also promotes sleep, research shows. Getting enough sleep has also been linked with a host of other health benefits, such as a healthy weight and better blood pressure.
