You don’t need a reason to have sex, do you? But you might just want to make time for it regularly in your over-packed work and social schedule when you learn that an active sex life contributes greatly to your health. When people raise the potential of sexual expression, it boosts their self-esteem and gives them a sense of being attractive, desirable, proficient, and confident. That carries over into all areas of life. Apart from all the multiple benefits your body gains with a good round of sex, these are the top 3 reasons to get some!
Sex can make you look younger and live longer. Research released earlier this decade made big headlines after finding that having sex several times a week on a regular basis can make people look four to seven years younger. Other studies have shown it doesn’t just appear to turn back the hands of time, but also can make you live longer. On top of that, it keeps your body in top-notch shape. The average 30-minute tussle between the sheets burns about 200 calories, all the while chiseling your tummy and backside (or other muscles, depending on your position of choice).
Sex makes you happier. Having sex regularly makes people happier than earning more money. In fact, a study done by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that marriages featuring frequent sex left couples feeling as happy as earning an extra $100,000 annually.
Sex is a great form of exercise. It won’t replace the treadmill, but it counts for something. Sex uses about five calories per minute, four more calories than watching TV. It bumps up your heart rate and uses various muscles.
So, get busy this weekend!
