Anxiety, Heart Disease / 20 Aug 2018

If you haven’t heard it before here it is now- sex is good for you. Good for you? Of course it’s good for you, it feels great and it’s also good for your health. Multiple studies have been performed on the benefits of sex and how it impacted health. The benefits could be numerous but the most studied and reported benefits included boosts in immunity, happiness and over all well being. The hormones released during sex can make you feel closer to your partner and also lead to improvement in your relationship.

Regular sex at least twice a week promoted heart health and reduced the risk of getting hypertension. Sexual activity increases the release of a hormone called prolactin which with the other feel good hormones leads to better sleep. The feel good hormones that are released during sex also decrease anxiety and stress. These hormones feed into a neural pathway called the pleasure or reward centers. Studies showed that couples who were in committed relationships were happier with frequent sex but this did not apply to casual sex or one night stands.

    I definitely agree that more sex is beneficial. I tried to explain to my fiance how it helps me with my anxiety. I did not do a very good of explaining. We live 4 hours away from each other so we don’t see each other often. So we have to schedule our time together due to his work schedule. I am self-employed so I can see him anytime he is available.
