Your Health and Sex!

Your Health and Sex!

Some have heard that sexual activity can be good for our health; but for those who haven't, here's a collective few facts that may inspire you to have more sex for your health, as well as pleasure.

Eases Stress

In this day and age, stress is an unfortunate part of our lives and we are always looking for ways to ease our worries, stresses and daily turmoil. Before the idea of arousal, just being around your partner after a long, stressful day can be rewarding. But when you get to the bedroom, your brain releases a burst of good chemicals like oxytocin, followed by a rush of endorphins, which eases stresses and pains.

Why Go to the Gym?

Need to get that cardio in but you don't want to leave bed? Sex is a fantastic way to get the blood pumping. You can burn up to 5 calories a minute! Sex is also super physical, so you're getting a lot of muscles involved. You're moving slowly, fast, you're stretching and reaching. Maybe you try a new move and when you're finished you're really feeling the burn. If I were you, I'd brag about that burn.

Better Sleep

After an orgasm, your body starts releasing hormones that make you feel more relaxed and help you nod off a little faster. Oxytocin and vasopressin are two chemicals that are associated with sleep. If you are worried of making a little bit of a mess before you fall asleep, consider this throw blanket that can protect your bed with its waterproof lining.

Strengthens Your Pelvic Floor

During the day, may it be a sexual activity or simply picking something up off the ground, you are contracting your pelvic floor muscles. If you were to let those muscles weaken, it may lead to incontinence over time ( i.e. peeing a little bit when you laugh). If enjoy masturbating, you can also use toys specifically targeted at doing kegel exercises like these super cute Shibari ones! This set and others come in varying weights to train your muscles at a slow and individual pace.


Basically, sex is awesome for your health! Your body and mental well being will thank you for incorporating it more into your daily schedule.
