I hope that everyone enjoyed their long holiday weekend.
CJ and I enjoyed our time together and the time with the family.
While I am working on a couple of projects for the blog I thought I would list here some more advantages to sex. If you need some reminders of other advantages I've posted, check it out here.
These are from the November 20th edition of First magazine.
According to study after study, making love improves your health.
Dramatic Reduction In Tension...
Inhaling male pheromones triggers the release of estrogen in a woman. This helps ease PMS, enhances mood, and promotes relaxation.
Increased Resilience To Colds and Flu...
Individuals who had sex at least twice a week showed 30 percent higher levels of immune boosting antibodies.
Natural Pain Reliever...
Post orgasm, the level of the hormone oxytocin soars to five times its normal level, triggering the release of feel good endorphins that help elevate your pain threshold.
Just one rigorous bout of sex burns 200 calories, the same as running for 15 minutes. Plus it works the pelvis, thighs, and arms and boosts testosterone, which tones muscles.
Just fantasizing about sex eases stress.
People who imagined sexual activities withstood stressful situations twice as long and reported lower levels of anxiety than their less imaginative counterparts, according to a recent study.
At least that's where I hope Dirty Debbie and CJ help you humble readers a bit.
