Health Benefits Of Sex

How sexual intercourse improves our health

Sex and sexuality are a part of life. Aside from reproduction, sex can be about intimacy and pleasure. Sexual activity, PVI, or masturbation can have many surprising benefits for men and women.

In Men

Through a review, it was found out that men who have penile-vaginal intercourse have less risk of developing prostate cancer.

It is also found that men who have frequent orgasms (2 or more a week) have a 50% lower mortality risk in comparison to men who had a lesser amount of orgasms.

In Women

Sexual activity in women

  • improve bladder control
  • reduce incontinence
  • relieve menstrual and premenstrual cramps
  • improve fertility
  • build stronger pelvic muscles
  • help produce more vaginal lubrication
  • potentially protect you against endometriosis or the growing of tissue outside your uterus

In general, sexual activities have various benefits like:

  • lowering blood pressure
  • burning calories
  • increasing heart health
  • strengthening muscles
  • reducing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and hypertension
  • increasing libido

Stronger Immune System

IgA is the antibody that plays a role in preventing illnesses and is the first line of defense against human papillomavirus, or HPV. It is found that people who are in relationships or have frequent sex have had more immunoglobulin A in their saliva.

Better Sleep

Your body releases oxytocin, and endorphins during orgasm. These together can work as sedation. Better sleep will, in turn, lead to:

  • a stronger immune system
  • a longer lifespan
  • feeling more well-rested
  • having more energy during the day
