Health benefits of active sexual life

Now you have a reason for convincing your partner for the astonishing foreplay you enjoy most. According to the latest studies, regular sex – that’s one to two lovemaking sessions per week – can provide some incredible boosts to your health and well being. Sex can ease depression and stress. Orgasms can be a great pain reliever, because they release oxytocin into the body. It can boost cardio health and fight aging.
Before we proceed, let me explain: I’m talking here about safe sex ideally with a committed partner. What good does it do to blow the overall health benefit by putting yourself at risk for the myriad of sexually transmitted diseases. Likewise, why neglect the mental health boost by pursing sex in a relationship/liaison that isn't emotionally healthy?
Scientists say we would all benefit by making love more often in monogamous and stable relationships. Surveys suggest that the average couple in their 20s and 30s have sex lasting up to half an hour just once a week and that this figure drops as people get older. But more lovemaking could make you healthier and happier. research claims SEX can make you look seven years younger - but that's not the only benefit. 
Sex not only feels good. It can also be good for you. Here’s what a healthy sex life can do for you. IF your partner is “not in the mood”  then it might be worth sharing the following to change their mind!
1) Stress relief
Stressed out with work or family problems? Don't let it affect your performance in the bedroom. Not only will having sex improve your mood, but a study has also proven that folks, who indulge in regular bedroom activities can handle stress better and are happier people. 

The effect goes for so-called cardiovascular re-activity,  the response of the cardiovascular system to stress. Participants who received comforting touch from their spouses before stressful events displayed lower blood pressure and lower heart rates. If that’s what a simple hug can do, imagine the inspiration you can give your partner the morning of a big presentation?

2) Banish your depression
Like any exercise that raises your heart rate, sex causes your brain to release feel-good chemicals that boost your levels of serotonin – the happy hormone – to lift your mood. Serotonin is the body’s key antidepressant chemical and one of the major reasons people smile and feel happy and relaxed after sex.

Sexually active women in long-term ­relationships are also less likely to feel depressed than women who go without sex, according to a research study of nearly 300 women in the American Archives Of Sexual ­Behavior.

3) Cut Your Risk for Cardiac-related Death
On a more dramatic note, the unique closeness of sex can have more consequential impact in the cardiovascular realm. In a 20-year long cohort study, researchers followed more than 900 men and found that having sex twice or more a week decreased a subject’s risk for a fatal heart attack – by more than 50%. 

4) Upgrade Your Immune system
Increases immunity Regular lovemaking increases the level of the immune-boosting antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA), which in turn makes your body stronger against common illnesses.

5) Relieves pain
Sex has been described as the 'ultimate analgesic'. A natural painkiller, it is far cheaper and more pleasurable - than swallowing a couple of aspirin. There is strong evidence that the feel-good chemicals released by the brain during sex act as effective pain-killers. During sex, blood flow increases to all parts of the body as you reach a climax, and this takes pressure away from the brain. Complete relaxation after an orgasm reduces tension in all muscle groups, including those in the neck and back. 

So, If you're using a headache as an excuse to not make love, stop doing that. Have sex instead, because, when you're about to have an orgasm, the level of the hormone oxytocin increases by five times. This endorphin actually reduces aches and pains.

6) Increases blood circulation 
Because your heart rate increases when you have sex, fresh blood is supplied to your organs and cells. While used blood is removed, the body also expels toxins and other materials that cause you to feel tired.

7) Prevents from cold and flu.
Couples who make love once or twice a week are less likely to catch colds, flu or stomach bugs, according to a study in the U.S. However, there is a fine line between too much sex and too little: those who made love more than four times a week were more prone to illness.

8) Enhances your mood
The feeling of drowsiness immediately after sex is partly due to the rush of blood to all body parts during an orgasm and partly to the release of a chemical called oxytocin from the pituitary gland. Oxytocin floods the body, helping to create feelings of relaxation and warmth. Its production continues after lovemaking, and scientists believe it helps people to evoke pleasant memories of their sexual partner.

About half an hour after sex, when blood flow has increased to the brain, a person will be more mentally alert than they were before they had sex. And, armed with the pleasant memories, will be more upbeat.

9) Improves overall fitness 
If you find going to the gym mundane or working out at home a task, here's another way to help you lose the flab and keep in shape. Regular sex will do wonders for your waistline. Half an hour of lovemaking burns more than 80 calories.

10) Keeps you young
Couples who make love at least three times a week appeare an average ten years younger than those who had sex twice a week or less. It makes us happy and produces chemicals that directly enhance the body and mind.  Endorphins are most important for boosting male health, and oxytocins most beneficial for women.

11) Prolongs your life
When you have an orgasm, a hormone called dehydroepiandrosterone is released. This improves immunity, repairs tissue and keeps the skin healthy. Men, who have at least two orgasms a week, live longer than men who have sex just once every few weeks. Researchers have correlated longevity with frequency of sex for both men and women. A recent study of 1,000 men in Wales, found that those who had two or more orgasms a week halved their risk of dying prematurely compared with those who had one orgasm a month.

12) Fights prostate cancer
Sex has special benefits for men, particularly if they are over 40. Research has shown that regular sex is important in the prevention of prostate cancer in later life. Having sex once a week cleanses the prostate gland as semen is squeezed out during an orgasm. It also bolsters the level of the male hormone testosterone, which may have a protective effect on the heart.

13) Increases levels of Estrogen and testosterone
In men, the hormone testosterone is what makes them more passionate in the sack. Not only will it make you feel way better in bed, but it also improves your muscles and bones, keeps your heart healthy and keeps a check on your cholesterol. In women, on the other hand, the hormone estrogen protects them against heart disease and also determines a woman's body scent.

14) Reduces Pms
Sex has other benefits on women's health. It can help regulate oestrogen levels, and a few studies have shown it is important in controlling the menstrual cycle and may reduce PMS (premenstrual syndrome).

15) Makes you sleep better
The sleep that you get just after you've made love will be much more relaxed. Getting a good night's sleep will make you feel alert and overall healthy. Having sex is one of the most reliable ways to ensure production of the hormone oxytocin, and oxytocin helps support sleep. This hormone brings about a feeling of calm tranquility, which lulls you into a restful sleep.

So there you have it pals, having sex more often will not only bring more pleasure to your life, it will also make you extra healthy, mentally and physically.
