5 Ways Good Sex Can Improve Your Health

A healthy sex life is an important part of General health. Good sex with a lot of passion can have a major influence on your quality of life. 

Sure, sex is pleasurable…

But did you also know how important it is to your health?

Some people might think that sex is only for baby-making, fun or excitement, while completely overlooking how great it can be for their general health. 

So in this article, we are going to cover 5 ways action between the sheets can help you live a longer and more fulfilling life. 

#1 Good sex lessens the risk of heart attack

Good sex can reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and other heart diseases.

Studies have shown that those who have sex at least twice a week have a lower risk of heart attacks than those who have sex no more than just twice a month or less. 

Interestingly, sex can be compared to a workout session. Good sex strengthens your heart, decreasing the occurrence of a heart attack. 

Although sex may be the only exercise some people get, you shouldn't completely abandon your workouts. Don't miss your workouts😄, even though the sex workouts can be so much fun. 

#2 Good sex boosts your immune system

In addition to being pleasurable and comforting, good sex has also been shown to boost your immune system. 

People who are sexually active and have a healthy sex life tend to get sick less than sexually inactive people. 

"Sexually active people take fewer sick days”, says Yvonne K Fulbright, PhD, sexual health expert. 

With good sex, your body builds up the ability to fight bacteria better than ever. 

#3 Good sex reduces cancer risk

For men, studies have shown that ejaculating frequently lowers the risk of prostate cancer. 

Men who ejaculate at least five times a week are less likely to be at the risk of prostate cancer rather than men who ejaculate once a month or even less. 

#4 Good sex cures headaches and lessens physical pain

Getting a headache?

Getting some bedroom action might just be the cure to your headache. It may sound surprising, but it works. 

During sex, your body releases endorphins, which are known for naturally reducing pain. When your body is swimming in endorphins, any headache you had before engaging in sexual activity might literally vanish. 

Feel a throbbing pain on any side of your head? Maybe it's time to get "busy"

Good sex reduces physical pain too. Happy hormones are released as you orgasm. These happy hormones known as oxytocin may help lessen any physical pain you feel. Oxytocin can also improve sleep quality, which helps your body to get its required rest. 

So when you're suffering from a headache, you don't need to avoid sex. Rather, having sex might make you feel better. 

#5 Good sex burns calories

Who knew something so pleasurable and exciting as good sex could burn calories?

Engaging in sexual activity with your partner helps you burn some extra calories. While good sex can't be compared to a proper workout session, it does make a good calorie-burner.

During sex, men and women are said to burn a different number of calories. Typically, men burn 4.2 calories per minute while shaking sheets. On the other hand, women burn about 3.2 per minute. 

Trying different positions during sex also helps burn more calories. The more positions you try, the more calories you'll burn

Final thoughts:

Other factors contribute to longevity but good and pleasurable sex counts as a fun way to increase lifespan. It makes you healthier and more energised.

Sex isn't good if it's not pleasurable, warm and comforting. To make your intimate moments with your partner more pleasurable, try Pulse's lubricants- warm and soothing. It's just that perfect thing you need to spice up your love-making.
