to Make Love Every Day ... Guaranteed
you know itís also good for your health? We found this information through
surfing the internet; you can, too, or you can go to any medical library or
book shop, and youíll find all the evidence you need.
So what does it do for us?
First, itís great for weight loss. It has been calculated that 150 calories
are used in 30 minutes of sexual intercourse - about the same calory usage
as 30 minutes of weight training, or walking 2.5 kms in 30 mins, or canoeing
1.5 kms in the
same time! Now be honest, which would you rather do?
Secondly, sexual activity
increases the heart rate and causes us to breathe more deeply - and this
improves our circulation, helping the blood flow to the brain and all the
organs. And the improved blood flow carries fresh oxygen and hormones to
every part of your body, which means that the waste products which cause
tiredness and illness
is removed more quickly.
Thirdly, the cholesterol
levels are lowered by sexual activity - and even better, it helps to balance
the HDL/LDL (good/bad) cholesterol.
Fourth, orgasm helps us to
Ďlet goí, and to relax completely. In this deep, calm state, we can forget
things which have been worrying us, and sleep more soundly. So an active and
satisfying sex life can help with insomnia, as well as enabling us to handle
better the stresses of daily life.
Fifth, sex releases hormones that can relieve pain - including headache and
period pain! (now thereís a novel approach, sex as a remedy for headache
rather than an excuse for abstaining!) During sexual activity, the hormone
oxytocin is produced. This causes the release of endorphins, which act as a
powerful analgesic, as well as triggering orgasm. And itís been found that
the resulting contractions in women can relieve the cramps often associated
Sixth, it can prolong your life! A British study found that men who had at
least two orgasms a week had half the death rate of those who had orgasms
monthly. And sex keeps us younger, too: DHEA, which is produced by sexual
activity, is said to boost the immune system and bone growth, keep us alert,
and keep our skin healthy and supple.
Seventh, regular ejaculation can help keep the prostrate healthy. And so can
Kegel exercises (contracting the muscles around the genitals, as practised
in Tantric Sex), because it shifts the sexual energy out of the prostrate
and circulates it through the body. Kegel exercises can be done by men
and women, hundreds of times a day. In addition to the benefits already
mentioned, a Belgian study found they can assist with minor erection
problems. For women, strengthening the muscles like this can assist in
childbirth, and also prevent incontinence, as well as increasing the
intensity of orgasm.
And finally, in both men and women, testosterone and estrogen levels are
increased by a regular sexual activity. And how does this help? Well,
testosterone strengthens bones and muscles, and some doctors think it also
keeps hearts healthy and good cholesterol high. Of course, testosterone
drives our libido, and it also makes both men and women desire genital
contact and release by orgasm. This is why men seem to Ďget straight to the
pointí, so to speak, rather than wanting romantic foreplay. And sex
increases estrogen levels in women, which protects against heart disease as
well as keeping her body soft - estrogen makes breasts grow, keeps vaginal
tissue supple. Estrogen makes women receptive, response to a manís approach.
Estrogen makes her romantic, testosterone creates in her the desire for
penetration. Men also produce estrogen, which helps them to develop the
of their personalities; indeed, as men age testosterone decreases and
estrogen increases, which is one reason men seem to get gentler, softer,
more nurturing as they get older.
