Another Rx

I always like to find and publish the latest research on why sex is good for you.
Below is some of the latest. I found it in this month's Men's Health magazine, so it's for the guys this time.

Along with the obvious improvement in brain function because you feel good, having sex twice a week will:

  • Bolster your immune system. This is due to a spike in immunglobulin A, an antibody that can fight off respiratory and stomach infections.
  • Cut the risk of prostrate cancer. The more a man ejaculates, the more carcinogens are flushed out of the sex gland.
  • Halve your risk of a fatal heart attack. Sex causes a surge in testosterone, a hormone which protects the heart from stress.
  • Ignite the body's fat burners. During sex men usually use 143 muscles and use as many calories as during a 15 minute jog.
  • De-stress your mind. After orgasm the body releases oxytocin, a hormone that acts as a natural antianxiety drug.
Let's keep each other well!
