Sex has beneficial effects that extend beyond the bedroom! Specialists have come to the conclusion that sex influences our health in ways we do not even think. More definitely, in sex time, the last thing you think about is … boosting your immune system or losing weight.
And yet, a sex game influences the body in so many ways that specialists recommend it not just for pleasure, but for medical reasons! Sex can be a real adjuvant treatment. And it may have the biggest advantage: unlike drugs, patients have a much higher compliance in complying with such a “regime”!
Mass media abounds in articles, sex-related reports, and it’s a great deal to try to stop sexing as a taboo topic.
However, the scientific reality, according to which we are all beings with sexual needs to be satisfied, is still viewed with repulsion, disgust or even embarrassment by a high percentage of the adult population.
That’s why specialists hope that by emphasizing the benefits that sex has for health (both physical and mental), they will be able to open the eyes and minds of many people who do not see sex but a primitive instinct that should be suppressed.
Sex is good!
It is scientifically proven.
The benefits are not just anecdotal or proverbial, but real. Below are some of the most important positive effects sex has on health, leaving aside that any couple relationship is stimulated by a more active sex life.
Sex and calories 30 minutes of sex burns over 120 calories (4 calories per minute), so the more, the better, not only erotic.
Maybe it does not look much at first, but with constant “exercise” it can easily get over 5,000 lost calories (in about 42 half-hours, not to say 21 hours of sex).
And at 3750 calories, we can already talk about a pound lost. Finally, the results can be seen, right? Specialists consider sex and a perfect way to do regular exercise because a good game requires concentration and a lot of activity from both partners.
In addition to stimulating calorie burning, sex can also be helpful in promoting a better image of each person’s body.
We all like to know that we have a beautiful body, and sexual nudity can significantly stimulate this view. Additionally, since sex involves finding the body in front of the other, we are encouraged to keep our looks and silhouette as beautiful as possible, and, with the desire to look as good as possible, we will be even more careful with the physical exercise exercises we will do it with other motivation, but also with a balanced daily diet.
Sex burns calories, there is no doubt. Recently, it emerges that during a sexual act, a man burns a calorie count equal to the one lost during a 15-minute run.
If you do not want to run in the park, then you can run in the bedroom, it would say a hat. During a sexual act, men burn about 12 calories, and women, 90. All that calories are lost in the case of a mild run on rough terrain or 15 minutes of jogging, writes Teen Problem.
These results came to a group of researchers who conducted an experiment involving 20 heterosexual couples aged 18-35 years. They had to have sex at least once a week for a month. Separately, they had to run on a treadmill for half an hour, measuring the amount of energy consumed during that time.
It became clear that men lose about 4.2 calories per minute during the sex and on the treadmill, 9.2 calories per minute.
For women, this indicator was 3.1 to 7.1. Obviously, everything depends on each person’s performance.
The results clearly show that sex can be seen as a very useful exercise. 98% of the participants in the experiment said sex is preferable to fitness.
Sex is fighting stress
One of the most important positive effects of sex on the general state is to improve the way the body responds to stress and overwork. Regular sexual activity can reduce blood pressure and stress to the body.
These observations were the result of a study by British researchers, which included 24 women and 22 men who had a “record” of sexual activity.
Subjects were then subjected to various stressful situations such as public speaking or oral mathematical calculations while monitoring their blood pressure in response to stress.
It has been found that people who have had sex more frequently responded better to stress than those who did not have sex soon or who were even in a prolonged period of sexual abstinence. Another study, conducted by the same team of researchers, has also shown that frequent sex can significantly reduce diastolic blood pressure. A similar effect of lowering blood pressure in women seems to have the hugs offered by the partner.
Sex boosts immunity
Good sex health means better and better health, experts say. It seems that sex two or three times a week can stimulate the production of the body of immunoglobulin A, antibodies that can fight against foreign particles harmful to the environment, especially those that come into contact with mucous membranes. Thus, the risk of infection is lower.
Specialists came to this conclusion after comparing saliva samples of 112 students from an American university.
Each subject also reported weekly sexual frequency and then IgA levels were tested and found in many body secretions.
The levels were significantly higher in the group of subjects with frequent sexual activity (2 times a week) compared to the subjects in the three other groups analyzed: abstinent, moderate (less than once a week), sexual activity very common (at least 3 times a week).
Sex prevents heart disease
Elderly people often worry that sex stimulates the heart too much and that there is a risk that during a prolonged sex party there will be a myocardial infarction or even a stroke. But the specialists are of another opinion.
A recently published study has shown that the risk of heart attack is not higher for older people who have sex compared to those who do not have sex.
The study tracked 914 men over a 20-year period. In addition, sex at least 2 times a week significantly reduces the risk of fatal myocardial infarction. Seldom sex, one month, does not change prognosis and does not have a protective effect against fatal myocardial infarction. Sex also greatly improves circulation, especially in the brain.
The combination of increased cardiac output and improvement in cerebral perfusion is physically translated by increased exercise capacity and an improvement in activities, generally (in the bedroom and beyond).
Overall performance is improved because stimulation of circulation is actually stimulated by the oxygen intake of tissues, but also the elimination of metabolic products, which can alter the functioning of the body through their accumulation.
Sex relieves pains of different causes
This effect is a result of increased levels of oxytocin and endorphins. The higher they are, the more analgesia is more intense. Many people have seen an improvement in painful symptoms after sex. Whether it is a headache, arthritis or pain associated with menstruation, all seem to respond very well to sex. Oxitocin seems to be the cure for improving it.
Specialists conducted a study that included 48 volunteers who were asked to inhale oxytocin vapours. After inhalation, a painful stimulus was applied to the fingers, and it was observed that the stimulus had to be twice as intense as in a subject who did not inhalate oxytocin vapors to cause a similar analgesic sensation.
Sex reduces the risk of prostate cancer
Frequent ejaculations, especially in men over 20 years, can significantly reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer later in adulthood.
Specialists followed groups of men diagnosed with prostate cancer but also groups who did not have this condition and who were in different age groups (30, 40, 50) and noted that the risk was not altered by the number sex partners in the past.
The disappointing discovery was another: men with frequent ejaculations (more than 5 in a week) at the age of 20 (20-30 years) have a reduced risk of prostate cancer by up to one third compared to men with fewer ejaculations in their youth.
These data are also supported by another study that has shown that more than 21 ejaculations during a calendar month may be associated with a low risk of prostate cancer in older men compared to those with fewer ejaculations (4- 7) during a month.
After sex sleep is better
And this effect is also a direct consequence of stimulating the release of oxytocin as a result of sexual stimulation and orgasm.
Oxytocin can induce sleep and can greatly increase its quality. Afterwards, the longer the body is, the better it can be in the daytime. Performance is improved, attention is improved, and the overall performance of the individual is increased as a result of a good night’s sleep.
In addition, it seems that a resting body does not experience so often with conditions such as hypertension or overweight. Induction of sleep through the release of oxytocin that occurs after orgasm explains why a person with an incredible sex drive is so active for a while, so that he can immediately sleep.
