16 Reasons To Have Daily Sex

Stressed, burdened with life’s difficult problems and fear that your health is declining? Then sex is the answer to happiness, longevity and a healthy body. You don’t agree?

Well, here is a list of the health benefits of sex, so do it daily to experience complete pleasure. These are 16 reasons to have sex today!

1. De-stress
Sex helps you reduce stress. When deep breathing exercises fail to de-stress you, sex will do the needful.

During sex your body produces dopamine, a substance that fights stress hormones, endorphins, aka “happiness hormones” and oxytocin, a desire-enhancing hormone secreted by the pituitary gland.

In a study, published in the Public Library of Science journal, three neuroscience researchers conducted a test on male rats and found that the sexually active rats were less anxious than rats with no sexual activity.

2. Great Form of Exercise
Making love is a form of physical activity. During intercourse, the physiological changes in your body are consistent with a workout. You must have noticed that the respiratory rate rises, which means you get tired. Hence, you burn calories. If you have sex three times a week for 15 minutes (but we know you can do better than that) you’ll burn about 7.500 calories in a year. That’s the equivalent of jogging 75 miles! Heavy breathing raises the amount of oxygen in your cells, and the testosterone produced during sex keeps your bones and muscles strong.

3. Lowers high blood pressure
Hugs and sex can improve your blood pressure. Sex reduces diastolic blood pressure, that is, the bottom number while reading blood pressure.

Researchers with the University of Paisley conducted an experiment on the same. They concluded that sex improves blood pressure.

4. Builds your immunity
Trying to fight the sniffles? Sex is the answer to fight cold and other health problems; sex can boost your immunity.

Immunoglobulin A, an antigen that fights the flu increases when the frequency of sex increases.

5. Makes You Look Younger
Making love three times a week can make you look 10 years younger, claims a Scottish researcher. “It’s good for you to have good sex,” says David Weeks, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, whose study on the effects of sex on aging appears in his book, Secrets of the Superyoung.

6. Healthy heart
Sex helps you burn calories but it can also improve your heart. Sex will take care of stroke and heart attacks, you just have to enjoy the moment.

Scientists with New England Research Institute examined the effect of sex on the heart. The study concluded that men are 45 percent less likely to experience cardiovascular diseases. But the study fails to study the effect of sex on a woman’s heart.

7. Pain relief
Pleasure is the measure to beat out the pain. Do you experience migraines and body pain? Well sex is the answer. But if you experience back pain, it is best to consult a doctor.

Dr. George E. Erlich, an arthritis specialist from Philadelphia conducted a study on the link between arthritis and sex. He narrows down that patients who engaged in sex experienced less pain.

8. Builds trust and intimacy
The act of sex spikes the hormone oxytocin; this hormone is responsible for your happiness and love. If your feel your relationship is falling out, there is trust or you’re worried that your partner will stray away, then sex will dispel these doubts. The hormone oxytocin builds trust and brings couples closer, and cupid too.

9. Less chances of cancer
Regular ejaculation reduces your chances of developing prostate cancer. In an Australian study men who ejaculated 21 times a month were least likely to develop cancer. It is further supported by other researches that sexual intercourse reduces the risk of prostrate cancer.

10. Stronger pelvic muscles
Sex involves the use of several muscles; hence regular sexual intercourse can help you develop stronger pelvic muscles. Further, since the act of sex involves a range of muscles, it also helps strengthen these muscles – for ex: quads, your core, and the upper back. Through regular sex, you can also maintain a strong bladder and bowel function.

Strong muscles, calorie burner, improves heart health – sex seems to take care of you.

11. Prostate Protection
Most of the fluid you ejaculate is secreted by the prostate gland. If you stop ejaculating, the fluid stays in the gland, which tends to swell, causing lots of problems. Regular ejaculation will wash those fluids out and ensure the well being of your prostate until old age. Problems may also occur when you suddenly change the frequency of ejaculations.

12. Induces sleep
After that great, lovely workout you are bound to get good sleep. But guess what? Sex works the same way as exercise. The increased heart rate leads to increased post-coital relaxation. Sex could be the next thing for insomniacs! So what really happens:
- Sex can relax you, hence if you are already tired, the act of sex will induce sleep.
- When men ejaculate they become lethargic, this can make them sleepy.

13. Regular periods
Apparently sex can improve your menstrual cycle. Sex regulates hormones, which in turn regulate the menstrual cycle. Sex reduces stress, which is one of the reasons women miss their periods. Sex seems like a better option than pills.

14. Prevents Erectile Dysfunctions
Fifty per cent of men older than 40 suffer from erectile dysfunctions and all young men fear the moment when they won’t be able to get it up any more. The best medicine against impotence is…sex. An erection keeps the blood flowing through your penile arteries, so the tissue stays healthy. Plus, doctors compare an erection to an athletic reflex: the more you train the more capable you are to perform.

15. Live longer
A healthy heart, stronger muscles, increased circulation of oxygen and happiness are some of the factors that add life to the years and as a result – years to your life.

A study published in the British Medical Journal reveals that men who engaged in sex often live twice as those who rarely had any action.

16. Healthier semen
If you’re trying to conceive, you increase the volume of semen if you have sex regularly. Regular sex replaces old sperms from the testicles. If there is a natural build of sperms it can lead to DNA damage.

  1. Daily? I don’t think there are many couples who manage that! When some do, it becomes newsworthy :)
    http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/features/2012/1114/1224326570917.html

    • I have sex daily… Uh sorry, I meant I have dyslexia !! ;)

    • My husband gets sex everyday and he will be 65 in June….you have the wrong woman….if I don’t feel like it I still make his day….he is always smiling…this has been going on seen 1997..I’m 62 …my mom said never refuse your husband and I don’t …lots of quickies ;-)

    • Dar, thanks for your sexist hogwash. Because all men want sex ALL the time, and it’s the woman’s JOB to acquiesce because we couldn’t possibly want it! Maybe you should examine why you think you need to do things you clearly don’t want in order to keep your husband’s affection.

  2. Haha, nice one! Well i’ll keep this in mind for the future. :D

  3. THATS A CREEPY SMILE

  4. I can just see a man “accidently” leaving this one up on his wife’s computer screen.

  5. does it count with yourself

  6. Ahahahah… You don’t have to tell me twice!

  7. Isn’t this obvious to a certain degree? We all know sex is healthy. Anyone that’s been doing it for a while (lol) and gave a lil thought to it, would know… But thanks for the info anyway!

  8. Yes, I agree to the most of the piints by own experience and analysis. But many things may vary with individual health, mindset and understanding . I would like to know the effect on pelvic muscles and uterine prolapse.

  9. I’m disappoint. If I wanted to read something about sex and its benefits I’d pick up a women’s magazine or something.

  10. I have sex almost every! Almost on mondays, almost on tuesdays, almost on wednesdays ………

  11. stephanie riedel

    I hink it has to be “good sex”….ie mutually beneficial….to give those benefits to both parties.

  12. ..sex is different from lovemaking….lovemaking is beneficial to both parties…..

  13. Well, I’m ready, willing, and able. Any worthy single available ladies out there?

  14. So what if you haven’t got anyone to have sex with? I had a girlfriend for 3 years, we used to have sex every day for 2 years and then slowly but surely it reduced to less than once a week and then we broke up. Sad but true. Now I only have my hand. Should I get a prostitute? Is it a human right to have sex? Therefore it is ok to get a prostitute,since society has made it very difficult for man to go out and get sex with a female without days of dating and playing stupid mind games to build ‘attraction. Yes I am a bit upset about everything at the moment.

  15. Typically, it appears the studies were mostly done on the effects of men. It’s news when it isn’t one sided

  16. Interesting enough, most benefits that are listed are directed towards men. Are these just 16 more reasons for a guy to influence their partner to give it up? I think that if, at the time, my 15 year old boyfriend was purvey to this list, he may have had a better shot at getting in my panties, instead of telling me it was “the next step in our relationship. Why bother being together if we aren’t moving forward?”

  17. What is the advice for people in 70s and beyond?

  18. The only person I know who has lived more than 100 years was a devoted Christian woman who has never ever been married, and lived all of her life in a small studio in the country. So please explain like I’m five how I can do to believe all these facts.

    • There will always be exceptions to the rule and by the fail logic of yours that you apply – Nothing will be reliable. Come on Dumbledore, put on your thinking hat!

  19. Make love is very nice,when i make feeling youg and power !!!

  20. I realize I might sound like someone complaining of drowning in the desert, but if we only have sex one a day I consider it a nice break. I’m glad there is actual physical and mental benefit to it!

  21. err um “A study published in the British Medical Journal reveals that men who engaged in sex often live twice as those who rarely had any action” You live twice???

    • that’s right. I lived with plenty of sex, died for over 1/2 an hour and brought back to life. This time around, I only have 30% of my heart left so I will have to skip my favorite part of life. Sex at this point would only literally kill me. People would say the man died and my friends would simply say… the bastard commited suicide lol

  22. In your seventys its best to lay off on sex all together (specifically ejaculation)

  23. As usual, written by men for men. Unfortunately too few understand the difference between sex and making love.

  24. All these benefits can be gained with exercise. Men should concentrate on their seducing skills if they want some :) instead of listing benefits – it’s a turn off :)

    • Seducing is the key to beautiful love making. Hours in the bedroom and not even a tought of intercourse yet is very rewarding and fulfilling to both women and men. If a man simply allows his woman to be completely satisfied with the amount of orgasms she’s had and she is ready to be penetrated, you will know lol let me tell you… you will know. Take your time, it’s a beautiful process. Not all men are like the ones you read about.

  25. Oh perfect the answer to all my problems… I’ll just run out to Walmart and buy myself a husband!

  26. unmarried are seriously losn wow

  27. It’s only possible with a libertine lifestyle, need to be in an open relationship for daily sexual activity with others I find physically attractive.

  28. I’d recommend a documentary called “slow sex” to everyone interested in this topic. It is really insightful. Furthermore for the women that have very little desire for sex it might be connected to the Birth Control Pill.

  29. ive been having sex every day with my gf for last seven years,quickies mostly ;) Its great….although it used to be 3 times a day for first 2 years !
