There’s no denying that sex is often on the brain, but lucky for us, that’s not always a bad thing! When it comes to getting it on, doing it more can actually benefit your body and your mind — not to mention your relationship. Below are some surprising perks of getting busy regularly.
1. An Orgasm a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
There are countless proven health benefits of having sex regularly. If you feel like skipping the gym one day, a sexy session between the sheets is a great substitute. Sex can improve sleep, strengthen and tone muscles, and even reduce the risk of heart disease.
2. It Brings You Closer to Your Partner
Sex is physically and emotionally intimate. When you have an orgasm, your body is flooded with oxytocin, a hormone associated with bonding and attachment between people. Apart from the biology of it, sex reinforces the feelings you have for your partner and can make your emotional bond stronger, in addition to your physical one.
3. Good Sex Gives Your Skin a Special Glow
Who knew that sex could make you prettier? Doctors say that because sex increases blood circulation throughout the body, the extra oxygen to your skin makes it brighter and more healthy-looking. Just like with exercise, it balances out hormone levels, which can also help improve acne.
