Improves women””s bladder control
Incontinence is something that will affect about 30% of women at some point in their lives. Good sex strengthens the pelvis muscles controlling the flow of urine which leads to a better control of the bladder.

According to an Australian research, high ejaculation frequency and sexual activity are tied to a lower threat of the malignancy later in life. Additionally, women who are sexually active have a lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who abstain.
