Couples are intimate.
They hold hands, go on dates, travel together, and most likely, enjoy some form of much needed sexy time in the bedroom.
Aside from bringing two individuals closer by nurturing their connection, did you know that love-making actually has different health benefits? In fact, it even has the ability to heal some diseases.
According to several studies out of Scotland, couples that have intercourse two to three times a day, are less prone to heart disease and stroke. Also, those that are sexually active are less likely to get allergies.
Experts have even compared the spike in serotonin levels in the brain whilst having sex with those experienced while eating comfort food. Additionally, sex lessens stress as it triggers the pleasure passageways of the brain.
Making love also improves your mood and makes you more optimistic.
Furthermore, people with an active love life will also sleep better after intercourse. It improves the quality of sleep and you feel better when you wake up.
Making love is also beneficial to those who want to shed some pounds. 30-minute intercourse is equivalent to losing 85 calories.
You might notice that morning glow on your skin after making love. It can make a person look more youthful. The radiance is a result of better mood and reduced stress. In addition, you will have naturally flushed skin as due to the arousal process.
But… how about those of us who are lucky if we have sex three times a year? Sadly, according to the study, we may be susceptible to greater health risks including increased prevalence of endometrial cancer in women, and higher rates of prostate cancer in men.
So, if you can get it. GET IT.
