health benefits of sex


Sexual intercourse burns approximately 150 calories per half hour. Canadians on average have sex 7.33 times per month, lasting approximately 24.4 minutes. That means that “Joe Canada” is burning off more than 10 thousand calories a year, or about 3 pounds, in a not particularly active sex life.

Sex helps increase the blood flow to your brain and to all other organs of your body.

Lowering your cholesterol is another of the “sex as exercise” benefits. Sex helps lower the overall cholesterol level. Perhaps more importantly it tips the HDL/LDL (good/bad) cholesterol balance towards the healthier HDL side.

People having frequent sex often report that they handle stress better, so the normal stresses of living do not become distress. The profound relaxation that typically follows lovemaking, with orgasm for women and ejaculation and/or orgasm for men, may be one of the few times people actually allow themselves to completely let go, surrender and relax.

For men the blood flows to a different "brain". Makes me a little dizzy actually! LOL

It also increases the release of endorphins wich help eliviate headache pain. So the next time your parner says they have a headache then give em the cure.
