Spring is as good a time as ever to explore the health benefits of sex for women, whilst all the plants and animals around us are getting down and dirty in preparation for Summer.
Everyone knows that sex is good for you, but why?
Here are 5 great reasons to whoop it up (with a trusted lover and protection of course!)
- Release of the stress busting hormones like oxytocin from skin to skin contact and healthy endorphins from orgasms, like DHEA. I like to think of these as the happy hormones. They make you feel all warm and fuzzy, like when you get a really good hug from someone you adore and to top it off, they are really good for you.
- Sex increases blood flow to the vagina preventing dryness and thinning of the vaginal mucosa (otherwise known as atrophy). Think of it as a nice fresh juicy apricot, instead of one of those dried ones that has been sitting out on the counter for a few weeks that you almost break your teeth trying to chew. Which one would you prefer?
- It burns calories– the longer, hotter, and heavier the foreplay, the more calories you burn. Heavy petting holds promise for the new fitness craze. The faster you are panting, the more calories you are burning. Burn baby burn!
- It gives you a healthy glow and makes you beautiful thanks to the healthy hormones released (see #1) your skin looks youthful and beautiful. And don’t forget about the smiles it entices, that alone takes years off your face.
- It strengthens your relationship with your partner, or with yourself as the case may be. To all you single ladies out there, don’t be afraid to make friends with some very trustworthy toys. It’s the safest sex you can have and the benefits are all the same.
