From the roaring twenties to the swinging sixties and the now the naughty noughties there is no denying that sex sells.
While outward beauty and sex appeal has been used in advertising for generations the health benefits have been overlooked. Well not anymore!
Boys, did you know that getting down and dirty twice a week means that the risk of getting a fatal heart attack is halved.
This is because sex is a form of cardio-exercise which helps both your heart and your body. Having sex for thirty minutes can burn off eighty five calories and is certainly more fun than the gym.
Swapping bodily fluids is always risky (for the love of God always wear a condom) but it has recently been proved that sex can build your immune system.
Having sexual intercourse twice a week increases the level of immunoglobulin A which protects you from colds and flu. The bad news is that having sex three or more times a week can lower levels of the same antibodies. You win some you lose some!
Younger men can reduce the risk of prostate cancer simply by having five or more ejaculations per week. Those of you accused of being a sex obsessed pervert now have the perfect come back to those spoil sports.
The world is an incredibly stressful place and getting more so as time goes by but the old methods of stress relief are the best. While having sex the brain releases endorphins that create a feeling of euphoria, masking feelings of stress.
These endorphins and lower blood pressure also means that sex relieves pain. The dreaded headache is the bane of most men’s sex life, however lower blood pressure helps to relieve headaches, sorry ladies our secret is out.
Every girl’s pet peeve is a guy who falls asleep straight after, but they are not completely to blame. The oxytocin generated during sex helps to promote a deeper, more restful sleep.
The act of sexual reproduction may shave between four and seven year off your physical appearance. On the other hand having kids may make you look older in the long run.
It goes without saying that sex can make you happy; this is because of the mood boosting hormones found in semen, absorbed by the vagina. Clearly an unwanted pregnancy or STD would decrease anyone’s happiness and it can not be said enough use protection.
