Sex is a great form of exercise as you burn 7500 calories if you have sex for 15 minutes thrice a week and it makes you look younger. During sex, the body produces endorphins which act as painkillers, it aids in prostate protection, helps prevent erectile dysfunction and is a very effective stress reliever. The body produces dopamine, a substance that counters stress.

Sex: Amazing Combination of Health+Pleasure

It’s not called Sexual Healing for nothing. Sex can actually heal. Health benefits of sex are plenty and can actually help you heal. It can heal your body and mind and prevent many diseases.

Some say it’s the first medicine ever known to man and it should be administered daily. Sounds too good to be true? Let’s discover the six reasons for which a man should have sex each day.

1. Great Form of Exercise

Making love is a form of physical activity. During intercourse, the physiological changes in your body are consistent with a workout. You must have noticed that the respiratory rate rises, which means you get tired. Hence, you burn calories. If you have sex three times a week for 15 minutes (but we know you can do better than that) you’ll burn about 7.500 calories in a year. That’s the equivalent of jogging 75 miles! Heavy breathing raises the amount of oxygen in your cells, and the testosterone produced during sex keeps your bones and muscles strong.

2. Makes You Look Younger

Making love three times a week can make you look 10 years younger, claims a Scottish researcher. “It’s good for you to have good sex,” says David Weeks, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, whose study on the effects of sex on aging appears in his book, Secrets of the Superyoung.

3. Pain Relief

The “Honey, not today, I have a headache” cannot be an excuse any more. During sex, both male and female bodies produce endorphins, hormones that act as weak painkillers. A study conducted by Gina Ogden showed that during sexual stimulation and especially during orgasm, we don’t feel pain. If she finds another excuse, remind her that sex is good for her entire reproductive system, because it trains the PC muscle, which keeps the reproductive organs in shape. In women, sex can also increase fertility, postpone the menopause and relieve PMS symptoms.

4. Prostate Protection

Most of the fluid you ejaculate is secreted by the prostate gland. If you stop ejaculating, the fluid stays in the gland, which tends to swell, causing lots of problems. Regular ejaculation will wash those fluids out and ensure the well being of your prostate until old age. Problems may also occur when you suddenly change the frequency of ejaculations.

5. Prevents Erectile Dysfunction

Fifty per cent of men older than 40 suffer from erectile dysfunctions and all young men fear the moment when they won’t be able to get it up any more. The best medicine against impotence is…sex. An erection keeps the blood flowing through your penile arteries, so the tissue stays healthy. Plus, doctors compare an erection to an athletic reflex: the more you train the more capable you are to perform.

6. Stress Relief

It’s a scientific fact: sex can be a very effective way of reducing stress levels. During sex your body produces dopamine, a substance that fights stress hormones, endorphins, aka “happiness hormones” and oxytocin, a desire-enhancing hormone secreted by the pituitary gland.

Sex will bring storm , a self condemnation. For few min enjoyment , one would loose their spiritual sense. To gain power and enhance understanding , practice celibacy.

Man and Woman are the products of nature, can make all the comparison. Should pluck the fruit to eat when ripen else it will ferment. One should find the appropriate partner to fulfil these obligations after having attained the age, else one shall be living the life goalless.

Then just find a partner that you trust and enjoy! Life is too short for living in other people's moralities. Sometimes I feel that old, long-time married people give "cow/milk" advice because they are bored themselves and want to restrict single people's experiences. It's like my trying to convince a young, pretty hetero girl to get a butch/crew haircut when she actually wants to have long, flowy hair to attract guys.

Ya gotta eat right, exercise, and date. I see more married people with health problems out there and somehow driving each other to the hospital. That's why elders often pressure people to get married, because "Who will take care of you then?"

Now that we have social media and pornhub the bedroom has gotten cold because most of these men are acting out their sexual appetite lusting after another naked and more appealing body.so that leaves the woman with a sex toy and a lot of frustration or he wants to hang with his boys and have drinking parties.

In that case you better make sure that your wedding partner understands, accepts and fulfil everything you bring to the table ooop bedroom if you are conventional.Sexual appetite is critically needed from both partners. Divorce rate is going rampart ,I wonder why. Needs are not met, perhaphs??

With whomever one chooses, as no one can tell another what is right for them. I personally think the hippies have it right.

This article is a bit misleading. A man's ejaculation is a release of seed, ojas, in other words, vital life force. What is the nature a seed that does not reach it's fullest potential in cultivation or expression ? It is impotent, inert or as Ayurveda teaches us, Tamasic. That is why people sprout their beans and seeds before eating them, to enliven the fullest potential for nutrition. That is why nature provides women with moon cycles, to flush the womb of the egg that will not be brought to fruition. The same abundance and wash of cleansing, restorative energy is felt on new moons and full moons and is why farmers sow and reap to that schedule. Listen, if a man is practicing daily sādhanā, the ojas and hormones that are being cultivated will directly and positively benefit all of his physiological processes, promoting finer levels of integration and an evolution in his consciousness. However, when his ojas are purposefully expelled to facilitate the experience of orgasm, la petite mort, or the little death as the French say, he is promoting within himself a pattern of Tamasic behavior, in which he is hastening himself towards the compost pile. Sexuality, without commitment to conscious and responsible living for the purpose of some enlightenment, offers only a loop, a closed circuit of body sharing, partner swapping and material intoxication, ultimately leading people to the recycling bin. When we make sensual gratification our purpose or master in any way, the results will always involve a great deal of Tamas. Moderation and the middle path are truly the way, but since the senses are never satisfied for long and the mind will always wonder and wander towards the next sensorial high or thrill, we must cultivate a transcendent quality to our consciousness so that we do not identify or invest too heavily in bodily desires. Before we promote the benefits of having sex, perhaps we should promote the benefits of committing to a daily practice of personal cultivation. Then perhaps we may be ready for transcendent and Tantric relationships with our female or male counterparts. Relationships in which time and energy isn't misspent creating bondage, but is mutually focused towards creating the bonds that will support liberation. Hariom :)
