Sexual intercourse is something that youngsters hanker after. The urge to make love is at its apex during the teen years. As young adults, people get a license to have sex when they get married.
Then as time passes by, the libido decreases and sex, which was once a pleasurable experience, becomes a chore. But sex is an important activity and should not be shunned.
Making love adds spice and zing to life and enables people to remain connected emotionally. At the same time, it accords many other benefits. Here are some reasons that highlight the importance of having sex on a regular basis.
Helps Look Younger
Sex is the perfect antidote for ageing. People who make love regularly not only remain happy but also look younger. Research has established that sexual intercourse releases endorphins and boosts the production of vitamin D. This acts as a potent anti-aging agent.
Increased immunity is one of the biggest health benefits that having sex accords to a human being. The heightened immunity has been witnessed in both genders; males as well as females. Love making increases immune-boosting antibodies called immunoglobulin A, which in turn, wards off common infections.
Diet control and an exercise regimen are often cited as means of shedding extra weight. Having sex is the third. Recent studies have established that having sex is as good as pumping iron in the gymnasium. Love making entails a total workout of the body as it involves muscular movement of the thighs, arms, shoulders and lower abdomen.
Sex tends to enhance the emotional bonding of a couple. It is also a good means of relieving stress. For time-stressed individuals who find it difficult to spend quality time together during the day, the bedroom encounter is an ideal platform to express their feelings and vent their thoughts.
Last but not the least, sex induces sleep. The physical exertion and release of hormones such as oxytocin and prolactin during orgasm promote sleep. So in addition to all the benefits, making love enables one enjoy blissful sleep.
