Sex Benefits You Should Know About!

We all love sex. Sex is something we just can’t get enough of, and any excuse we have to either talk about it or go out and do it, we will take it. We can’t go a day without the latest sex news making it to the headlines. Often, the headlines focus on what sex does for us. We don’t need an excuse to have more sex, but when we are given so many good sex benefits, we aren’t going to turn them down.

There used to be a time when we were told that sex was bad for you, but thanks to science we know that sex actually has a lot of great benefits to enjoy. Here on the Escort Sweden blog we take a look at some of the best sex benefits, and just why you should be enjoying as much sex as you can.

A fun way to get rid of stress

When you are feeling stressed, your blood pressure will rise. You’ll find it hard to keep your cool, lashing out at the smallest thing. Concentrating on things at work becomes much more difficult, as you’ll be so focused on the problems you are trying to deal with instead.

Thankfully, sex can help you out a lot. Studies over the years have shown a clear link between sex and your blood pressure, with one in particularly showing “that sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure”. Systolic blood pressure is the first number you get on a blood pressure test, and for many it can be far too high.

Sex is a great way to let off some steam when you are feeling tense, which is why it helps your blood pressure so much. You get to unwind with someone sexy, and it leaves you feeling great. No wonder it is so good for us!

Boosts your libido

When you are having trouble lasting longer in bed, there is really only one thing you can do, and that is to have more sex. It might sound like a strange solution, but it helps you learn your body better, and so you know just when you need to slow things down.

Having sex will help you learn where your “point of no return” is. The “point of no return” is when you are so close to orgasm that you cannot stop it, and by having sex you begin to learn just where this point is.

When you know where the point is, you can stop the action before you reach it and do something else. You can spend a little time going down on the woman, and this break will help you last that little longer in bed. Some refer to it as edging, and it is an effective way of helping to boost your libido. Basically, it is one of the best sex benefits there are!

It counts as exercise!

Sometimes the thought of going to the gym and spending time trying to get fit is just exhausting. We don’t want to have to dress up and drive to the gym to lift weight and run on a treadmill for a while when there are so many other fun ways to get some exercise in.

Sex is one of them. According to studies, sex burns up around five calories per minute. It might not sound like a huge number and definitely won’t replace your workout at the gym, but it is a start, and definitely one of our favourite sex benefits.

Plus, sex not only bumps up your heart rate, it also gives you a total body workout by using all of the muscles in your body. Is there a better way to get fit? We don’t think so!

Better than pain killers!

We have pretty much all heard the excuse of “I’ve got a headache” whenever the subject of sex is brought up, but that excuse will no longer wash with a lot of us, as it has been proven that having sex can actually be a lot better for you than taking a pain killer.

PhD Barry R. Komisaruk stated that “orgasm can block pain”, so when you are dealing with a nasty headache or something similar, sometimes the best things you can do is jump into bed and passionately fuck your pain away. Yet another one of the sex benefits that we love, as we no longer have to head to the medicine cabinet to get rid of that headache.

For women, it seems that an orgasm isn’t even necessary to stop pain, although we suspect that it will really help women everywhere feel a hell of a lot better. “We found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain”, suggests Komisaruk, and that is just yet another reason why we should all be going out and having more sex!

Kick starts your immune system

We all have those days when we feel really low and ill. When that happens it can be hard to want to spend our time and energy having sex, but if you do you’ll find it is the best thing that you can do with your time.

Sex has actually been proven to help your immune system fight off germs, viruses, and other nasty things that could leave you feeling terrible… and it is all because of the levels of antibodies. The more sex you have, the more antibodies you have to fight infection.

If that wasn’t enough of an excuse to jump into bed, you should also remember that those who are sexually active actually have fewer sick days off of work. This is because their bodies are better at fighting things off, so they are getting more enjoyment from sex.

Different sex benefits

Sex is a great thing for us to be doing. To start with, it feels great when you do it right. You’ll find the position that works best for you and find a hot and sexy partner to spend time with. You get to enjoy someone else’s body as you explore it, finding out what turns them on the most and what it is they enjoy in bed.

There are also plenty of other great reasons for us to have sex. It reduces the amount of stress we are feeling, helps fight pain, and helps us to stay healthy. Not bad for what amounts to a quickie in bed, is it? The amount of sex benefits seems to be almost unending!

You might have some suggestions for why sex is even better for us, and we’d love to hear them. You can share them with us by leaving a comment below, or you could head to the Escort Sweden forum and see what others are saying there. Got some great ideas for other blogs you’d like to see? Just let us know.
