Guys have the reputation for being sexual so I thought we would take a look at the woman’s perspective, so I found 17 great reasons to have good sex published on Woman’s Health Magazine. Apparently there are many health related benefits for having sex. So guys, even though this was written by a woman for a woman’s magazine you might want to take some notes. The #1 reason for good sex not mentioned in the article is maintaining the bond. Nothing keeps a couple together like good sex, nothing keeps the good sex flowing like an emotional connection. Enjoy the article and have fun! -SteveBy Nicole Bades Woman’s Health Magazine.
Heart: Shag your guy’s ticker into shape. According to a study at Queens University in Belfast, men who have sex three or more times a week can cut their risk of heart attack in half. According to that same study, regular romps will also halve your man’s chances of suffering a stroke.
Weight Loss: Work off that Rice Krispies Treat without hitting the treadmill. One 30-minute roll in the hay burns about 200 calories.
Sleep: Get more z’s. A little sensual massage followed by some dancing in the sheets releases sleep-inducing endorphins.
Immunity: Kick colds to the curb. Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that having sex once or twice a week boosts the immune system by 30 percent.
Regular Periods: Aunt Flow, we meet again. Endocrinologists at Columbia and Stanford universities found that women who have sex at least once a week have more-regular menstrual cycles than those who do it once in a blue moon.
Pee Control: Watch a Lost DVD marathon without constant bathroom breaks. Sex tones the pelvic muscles that support your uterus, bladder, and bowel, meaning better pee control.
Pain Relief: No pain, all gain. Right after your big O, you’ll be practically swimming in oxytocin (we’re talking a seriously intense surge). The overload releases endorphins, which help alleviate pain from arthritis…and–hallelujah!–menstrual cramps.
Relaxation: Curb irritability. “Tactile stimulation soothes nerves,” says Evelyn Resh, M.P.H., certified nurse midwife and director of health services at Canyon Ranch spa in Lenox, Massachusetts.
You’ll Get More Sex Later Too: Use it or lose it. Says marriage therapist Michele Weiner Davis, author of The Sex-Starved Wife: “The more you have sex, the more likely you’ll be to continue to produce testosterone, one of the primary hormones responsible for sexual desire.”
Stress Relief: Seriously pissed? Instead of screaming your head off, save your voice and have sex. It’s a great way to release tension.
Letting Go: Express some of your more risqué emotions and behaviors — aggression, domination–in the comfort of your own bed. (Can you say S&M?)
Confidence: Feel the power. “When things go well in the bed and you’re pleasing your partner,” says San Francisco sex therapist Sandor Gardos, Ph.D., founder of MyPleasure.com, “you feel more confident and powerful in other parts of your life.”
Happiness: Sex makes you happier than having money does, according to a recent study by the National Bureau of Economic Research. A marriage that included regular humping was figured to bring the same levels of happiness as earning an extra $100,000 annually.
Slow Aging: Skip the Botox. In his book, Secrets of the Superyoung, neurophysiologist David Weeks, M.D., of Scotland’s Royal Edinburgh Hospital, writes: “An active sex life slows the aging process.”
