Don’t let anybody fool you into thinking that sex is an exact science. What works for one person may not work for another, and what turns you on, may be someone else’s biggest turnoff. For the most part, sexual health cannot be defined by using exact figures.
In other words, when it comes to people’s satisfaction with their sex life, quality and quantity are entirely subjective. However, many people continue to be obsessed with comparative sexual milestones such as the age of their first sexual encounter and, much more frequently, the number of times they have sex per week. Some people are not happy unless they are getting busy several times a day, while others are perfectly satisfied with some nookie once in a blue moon.
Logic tells us that sexual frequency tends to diminish over time since work, family, lack of physical endurance and even boredom can get in the way of having great sex. Here is the thing, though: Sex is great. There is a multitude of benefits to reap from having sex more often.
Having daily sex will seem a pipe dream to most people, but with preparation and forethought, it is not as complicated or difficult as most would think. And trust me on this, you want to be having as much sex as possible.
Why? You may ask. Well, read below to find out why having sex every day might just be the best thing you can do for your mind, body, and soul.
5 Reasons Why Daily Sex Is Good For You And Your Partner
Most people think I’m kidding when I tell them that frequent sex is an excellent ally in the fight against the big “C.”
The truth of the matter is that the research has proven, again and again, that sex induces specific physiological changes to the body that protect it against a variety of cancers. For example, men who have sex more often actually have a smaller chance of developing prostate cancer. Women who have sex regularly also enjoy increased protection against some types of cancer, such as breast and ovarian.
Some scientists have calculated that the highest grade of protection for men is achieved after experiencing 20 ejaculatory orgasms per month. In the same vein, women need to have sexual intercourse several times a week for the resulting oxytocin surge to have an effect against cancer.
All of us have experienced the characteristic post-orgasmic glow. Well, why not use that as a tool to alleviate the side effects of depression?
It has long been known that sex causes the human body to release a large number of endorphins. For those of you who don’t know, endorphins are a group of potent hormones and neurotransmitters that are primarily responsible for blocking pain signals in the body, as well as causing sensations of euphoria.
What does this mean for sexually active people? It means that the more sex you have, the better you will feel! The surge of “feel good” endorphins caused by daily sex will eliminate tension and stress from your life, thus removing the many negative feelings and emotions that are so closely associated with depressive states.
Not to mention the fact that when you have regular sex, you end up having higher self-esteem, which has also been linked to a reduced incidence of depression.
Mental Health Protection
For years the medical community thought that many mental health symptoms were caused by a disorder called “Hysteria.” What did doctors do to treat this condition? They masturbated their patients to orgasm. In fact, it was a medical doctor who invented the world’s first vibrator!
As it turns out, Hysteria does not exist. However, Victorian doctors weren’t entirely mistaken by assuming that sex was heavily involved in mental health.
Statistics show that people that have more sex also have fewer mental and psychological disorders compared to the general population. Having sex daily will protect your mind as well as your body.
Protection Against Pain
As we mentioned earlier, the human body experiences a surge of hormones and neurotransmitters during sexual activity, and especially during orgasm. Since an important function of these substances is to regulate the body’s response to pain, the next time your wife or girlfriend says she has a headache when you initiate sex, kindly remind her that an orgasm will probably cure it.
There is no denying that sex can be a potent analgesic. Women who have lots of sex, experience significantly fewer episodes of discomfort and pain during their menstrual periods. Even patients with chronic and severe arthritic pain have reported immediate relief of their symptoms after having sex and achieving orgasm.
