Sex, it does a body good

Sex inn sighn 300x200 Sex, it does a body good

I hit the gym for a list of reasons. At the top, it is to keep in shape, to look and feel good, be attractive to girls, and relieve stress. I also get a sense of accomplishment when I run through a good workout. As I’m sure many of you out their would agree, we are all quicker to hit the gym than the sheets when it comes to taking care of ourselves; but as anyone who has had sex before knows, having sex does a body good. Seriously. Having fun, regular, active sex, brings about good physiological benefits…assuming you don’t catch an STD obviously.

Wheres the proof? Well apart from getting it on yourself and finding out, a credible study from the Queens University in Belfast tracked the mortality of around 1,000 middle-aged guys over the course of a decade. The point was to compare guys of similar age and health to sexual frequency. Its findings, which were  published back in ‘97 in the British Medical Journal, were that men who reported climaxing the most enjoyed a death rate of half to the rest of the group. Half! So guys who get it on regularly die half as often to those who don’t. So much for abstinence.

Sex does a body good and sex and dating go hand in hand. Now, I am not talking about hooking up with random people you just meet. Super Awesome Dating is about dating. If your looking just for sex, they have sites for that. I’m talking about regular sex with your boyfriend or girlfriend in a normal stable relationship. Sex in this regard, had tons of physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental benefits. Lets run through a few of them (based on the study, and maybe a little personal experience)

Super Awesome Dating’s – Sex it does a body good list of benefits

  • Stess relief: Even with only yourself,  sex makes you for a moment in time forget about your problems and worries. Your thoughts are elsewhere, and when your done, you have feelings of warmth and relaxation. A great way to unwind from long day. Sex is a mood lifter, it releases endorphins literally making you feel good and fighting off feelings of bad.
  • Weight loss: This is a no brainer. Sex is a workout, or at least good sex should be a workout. The kind that works your strength, flexibility, and stamina. But not the kind of workout you dread, the kind that you look forward too. Sort of like people who love what they do for a living and say “it doesn’t feel like work”, that’s what sex  as a workout is like. It doesn’t feel like a workout, it feels like a whole lot of other good things. As a workout, sex can burn a ton of calories; 100-300 per 30 minutes of sex is not unreasonable.
  • Healthier: Sex fends off flu and colds. So its a good idea during those cold winter nights to heat up in the bedroom a bit.
  • Sleep Better: After sex, its time for a nap. Forget counting sheep. Good way to deal with insomnia.
  • Better Self-esteem: Good chemistry with your boyfriend/girlfriend  makes you feel better about yourself and them, can lead to a stronger relationship and a better quality of life, and also be more positive about life.
  • Look younger: Besides making you feel young, sex may actually make you look younger.  Research indicates that shiny hair, bright eyes, good complexion are all positive results of sex. Why? Because of  something called   DHEA (dehydroepiandrostone). So looking and feeling younger is a good way to supercharge your sex life.

What a list! Think about it. If I told you there was something you could do that you would LOVE doing and the benefits are that it makes you: lose weight, relieve stress, feel better about life, feel better about yourself AND makes you look younger? You would think that I was either lying, crazy, or selling something. Nope, just turns out that sex does a body good.
