Throughout this article, Luvkis will introduce you to five incredible health benefits of sex for men. The following health benefits will give your guy all the more reasons to look forward to your next sexual adventure. Whether the benefits are physical or psychological, these 5 health benefits of sex for men are guaranteed to make your man feel better.
Improve your mood
This first health benefit of sex helps perhaps both men and women alike. It should not come as a surprise that sex makes you feel better because it simply feels good. But did you know that it has actually been scientifically proven that sex improves our mood? That’s right! When we have sex, our brains release certain feel-good endorphins that lift our mood. These endorphins make us forget about all the stress and bad things that are currently bothering us and, instead, make us feel relaxed and happy. This is a benefit we both can enjoy! So the next time either you or your partner feels down, why not have sex? You’re guaranteed to feel much better afterward!
Decrease pain and aches
Again, a benefit that can be enjoyed by both men and women. For a woman, having an orgasm decreases the pain experienced from menstrual cramps whereas for men, having an orgasm deceases regular pains and aches. This means that any regular pains such as a headache, muscle pain, or back pain can be simply relieved by having sex with your partner. The reason behind this lies in the fact that having an orgasm releases oxytocin. This substance is known to relieve pains experienced by a human up to a staggering 50%. The next time you have sore muscles or a headache forget about taking medicine and simply have sex instead.
Enjoy better sleep
Above, we have explained that the blast of oxytocin released during an orgasm lowers your pain. But the truth is, this substance does more than just that! In fact, oxytocin also works as a natural sleeping aid. As a result, you fall asleep easier and your sleep quality will be better after having sex. It has to be stated, however, that this substance has a stronger effect on men, which explains why your boyfriend is likely to fall asleep faster after sex. That being said; we all know how important a good nights’ rest is for our overall health. And as sex is helping us to sleep better and longer, it indirectly helps in living a healthier lifestyle.
Reduce the risk of cancer
Now, let’s get into the real benefits! One of the most common forms of cancer by men is prostate cancer. The prostate is a small walnut-sized organ that is located close to a man’s penis. One of the main purposes of the prostate is to produce liquids used for the production of semen. When a man has an orgasm, the prostate is emptied and thus cleansed.
Little of us might know it, but not having your prostate cleansed on regular basis actually increases your chance of getting prostate cancer. In fact, the National Cancer Institution has found that an average of 21 ejaculations per month cuts the threat of getting prostate cancer by a staggering 33%! Cleansing your prostate can be done through masturbation and actual sex.
By far the most efficient way to do so, however, is by having a prostate massage. Luckily for us, the latest prostate massagers make it extremely easy to massage our own prostate and enjoy a mind-blowing orgasm as you have never experienced before.
Improve your heart’s health
Being in love and having sex is good for the heart. And we don’t mean this only in a romantic feelgood way. No, having sex is actually good for the heart! Recent studies have shown that having three or more sexual encounters per weeks reduces a man’s chances of having a stroke or heart attack with nearly 50%. Added to that, sex is also considered to be a magnificent cardio exercise as it can burn up to 200 calories in just 30 minutes. Having sex is not just good for your heart, it also keeps you fit and young!
