Sex Increases Your Circulation

Now we know what you’re thinking, you pervert, and yes, obviously one of the ways that blood flow is increased during sex is when a guy gets aroused, and the blood starts pumping south. But in general, sex increases the blood flow in both men and women efficiently that fresh, healthier blood is produced and sent throughout your body to all of your organs, leading to waste being disposed of and keeping you more vigorous. Improved blood flow basically cleans you out on the inside, which will keep you more youthful for a longer period of time.


Sex Improves Your Bladder Control

Okay, so it doesn’t improve everyone’s bladder control. This one is specifically for our women readers, as sex, believe it or not, actually improves a woman’s bladder control. Apparently, this all comes down to having what doctor types refer to as a “strong pelvic floor” and, as you may have been able to guess, sex is one particular activity that strengthens that particular area. So if you’re a lady worried about whether you’ll make it to the bathroom in time when you’re half asleep in the middle of the night, the answer is simple. Have more sex and you’ll be able to hold in that pee like a champion.


Sex Does Wonders for Your Immune System

Everyone is well aware that in order to keep from getting sick, you need to eat right, get plenty of rest, and make sure you’re downing large doses of vitamin C. But somewhat amazingly, another tremendous boost to your immune system is having sex. For whatever reason, sex produces certain antibodies that your body needs to ward off viruses, and studies have shown that people having sex even once per week are going to have a healthier immune system than those who don’t have sex at all. So basically what we’re saying here is that it turns out sex is the cure for the common cold.


Sex Can Prevent Heart Attacks

When you get to a certain age, you’re going to start worrying about heart attacks. That’s just the way things go, as heart conditions, diseases, and attacks are an all too common killer of men and women. For men, one of the ways to help prevent, or at least lower the risk of heart attacks is to engage in sexual activity a couple of times per week. In fact, having sex twice per week has been shown to lessen a man’s chance for heart related trouble by nearly half, an absolutely staggering number.
