Sex and masturbation are an essential part of most people’s lives. Aside from sexual reproduction, sex can be an expression of intimacy. Sex can obviously add a lot of benefits to your life, physically and mentally.

So what is the physical importance of sex?

In case you actually need a reason to justify that early morning or late night fun session, remember that sex can easily count as exercise . Though sex isn’t enough to constitute as your entire workout for the day, it does get your blood pumping and your heart pounding in multiple ways. Research has shown, that sex lowers high blood pressure, burns calories, increases your heart health through cardiovascular benefits, reduces the risk of strokes and heart diseases. Recent studies have also demonstrated that men who have intercourse more frequently have lower risks of developing prostate cancer. More sex helps you sleep better. Your body releases a lot of hormones and endorphins when you orgasm. These hormones not only assist you in fighting and lowering your cortisol levels (stress hormones) but also help you achieve a more rested sleep. Better sleep helps you maintain a stronger immune system, gives you that relaxed feeling and helps with sustaining more energy during the day. Additionally, the more rest you get, the easier it is for your body to recover and turnover cells, which is wonderful for clearing up your skin if you have acne, and repairing sore muscles. 

Is sex good for mental health?

Sex with a partner or through masturbation is just like exercise in the sense that it can help manage your stress levels and anxiety and boost your self-esteem and happiness. It also contributes to building stronger relationships, as you release the hormone oxytocin. This can help you bond and build trust.  As mentioned earlier, sex helps you fight high cortisol levels, which reduces your stress levels. Cortisol is linked to your blood sugar and metabolism as well, so having lower levels can lead to weight loss, which may help you achieve more self confidence if weight is a concern.

What are the benefits of masturbation?

Masturbation offers many of the same advantages as sex, but also offers some of it’s own unique advantages. Solo sex can help you explore and learn your own body, making partnered sex more fulfilling since you’re able to guide them to please you better. In addition masturbation is the key to more frequent orgasms. The ability to orgasm more often is linked to a healthier mental mindset!

Overall, sex is an impactful part of your life and well-being. In relationships, orgasms tend to play a significant part in bonding and trusting each other. The benefits, both physically and emotionally that sex can bring, are very helpful. If you need more ways to explore sex and masturbation, adding sex toys into your life can be extemely exciting!
