10 Wonderful Ways S£x can Heal You
“S£x does a lot more than making you feel good. S£xual healing isn’t just about pleasure but can prolong your lifespan.”
Meg Butler of Madame Noire lists 10 ways s£xual healing helps your relationship and your health:
Even your cycles out: Wish your period was easier to follow? Regular s£x can even them out (as long as your doctor can assure you through a checkup that nothing else is wrong).
Cure your headaches: It may work better than painkillers for an average headache.
Bring down your stress levels: Have a tough week at work? Schedule some intimate time even if you’re tired. S£x can do just as good a job of bringing down your stress levels as a calming bath or a yoga session.
Soothe your symptoms: When you’re under the weather, s£x can be the last thing on your mind. But a few minutes under the sheets can actually give your sympathetic nervous system a boost to help relieve most of your symptoms.
Improve your workouts: Post-workout s£x is amazing. When your blood flow is pumping, your pleasure zones go off the charts. And I can’t think of a better reason to get to the gym.
Get your exercise on in bed: S£x provides more of a workout than researchers previously thought. Getting busy can actually burn as much as 2/3 of the energy as time spent on the treadmill.
Improve your relationship health: S£x doesn’t just fix your physical health. The stress-reducing hormones released after you both have an orgasm make pillow talk the best time to talk about tricky issues in your relationship.
Relieves minor aches and pains: Headaches aren’t the only pain a good orgasm can alleviate. Minor aches and pains like cramps can be banished by a little action in the sack.
Improve your heart health: Several studies suggest that the more orgasms you have in your lifetime, the lower your risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke or heart attack.
Help you get to sleep: You may not get off quite as quickly as he does, but over time, regular orgasms before bed can make it easier for you to get to sleep.
