Apart from giving you an amazing feeling, sex comes with several other health benefits. According to research sex is said to improve immunity, improve bladder control in women, lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart attacks and prostate cancer. It is also a great way to exercise and relieve stress, we all know why.

Curejoy Expert Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

Apart from the means of reproduction, sex is also linked with several other health benefits. Indian sutras have preached the idea since mythic ages.
Among the list of health benefits of sex, the best ones that are believed to have worked pretty well for many are as follows:

Sex Improves Immunity

People who have sex have higher levels of what defends your body against germs, viruses, and other intruders. Reportedly, researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that college students who had sex once or twice a week had higher levels of the a certain antibody (immunoglobulin A) compared to students who had sex less often.

Improves Women’s Bladder Control

Reports online also suggest that a strong pelvic floor is important for avoiding incontinence, something that will affect about 30% of women at some point in their lives. And sex is like a workout for pelvic floor muscles.

Lowers Your Blood Pressure

Indians believe that having a healthy sex will also help keep the blood pressure at moderate degree. Moreover, one of the researches also suggests a link between sex and lower blood pressure.


Sex can also be considered as a form of exercise that will stretch and strain your muscles for the better. Sex uses about five calories per minute, four more calories than watching TV.

Lowers Heart Attack Risk

Since, sex keeps your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance, a good sex life is good for your heart.

Make Prostate Cancer Less Likely

A good sex life also offers a guarantee to ward off prostate cancer. Research says that men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer.

Stress and Pain Reliever

One of the studies have also shown that having sex doesn’t only improve the mood, but a study has also prove people who indulge in it effectively can also handle stress better than other people. Apart from that sex is also considered as a great pain reliever. When you’re about to have an orgasm, the level of the hormone oxytocin increases by five times. This endorphin actually reduces aches and pains.


There are several other health benefits of sex. For e.g. it also offers a better sleep, improves overall fitness, boost your libido, increase intimacy and improve your relationship.
