18 reasons to have regular sex

Here are 18 reasons why you should have regular sex.

  1. Because you love your husband. You know it is important to him and want to make him happy.
  2. It helps you to forget. An orgasm creates a loss of memory that lasts up to five hours. During this time, you can forget about your overdrawn credit card and your catty sister.
  3. Sex reloads you for pleasure. Every time you share a positive experience with your mate, you are associating him or her with pleasure. Several of these encounters can transform your relationship.
  4. It puts the passion back into the relationship: Passion is what differentiates your marriage relationship from those you share with your friends. You can be best friends but, without sex, there is no passion.
  5. The following reasons are taken from a 1997 study published in the British Medical Journal: Sex sharpens your sense of smell. After sex, production of the hormone prolactin surges. This, in turn, causes stem cells in the brain to develop new neurons in the brain’s ‘smell’ centre.
  6. It contributes to loss of weight since a vigorous bout burns some 200 calories – roughly the same as running for 15 minutes on a treadmill.
  7. It reduces depression. Orgasms release endorphins, which help to create a general feeling of well-being. Sex also promotes the formation of oestrogen which alleviates PMS.
  8. Sex gives you a healthier heart. Women who have more sex have higher levels of oestrogen, which protect against heart disease.
  9. It is a cure for colds. Sex just once a week leads to a 30% increase in immunoglobulin levels – known to boost the immune system.
  10. Sex leads to better bladder control through strengthening the pelvic floor muscles which control the flow of urine.
  11. Shiny hair, glowing skin. For women, the extra oestrogen from orgasm makes hair shine. Sweat produced during sex cleanses the pores and makes skin glow.
  12. Calming effect. Sex is ten times more effective than Valium (without the side-effects).
  13. Relief for a stuffy nose. Sex is a natural anti-histamine and can even help combat hay fever or asthma.
  14. Firmer tummy and bottom. Regular sex can firm your tummy and bottom, plus improve posture.
  15. It boosts your immune system. Endorphins stimulate immune cells which fight disease.
  16. Forever young. Sex slows down the ageing process. It controls cortisol levels in the bloodstream which relieve stress and causes people to age slower.
  17. Protection against Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis. Women who have more sex have higher levels of oestrogen, which protect against Alzheimer’s and osteoporosis.
  18. It gives you a feeling of euphoria – the best way to a natural high!
