The surge of endorphins released during an orgasm helps provide relief from annoying aches and pains - be it a backache, or a pounding headache, or even menstrual cramps. Oh and if your partner has read this post, “Honey, I have a headache” may not work in your favour next time.

Sex Benefit 2. It's a Great Stress-Buster

The next time you’re majorly stressing over a job interview, or a big life decision, stay off the fattening comfort food and get busy between the sheets instead. A great advantage of sex is that those feel-good hormones help curb anxiety, and helps you relax better. The more often you have sex the more stress-free your life will be.

Sex Benefit 3. A Healthy Heart

You may eat right and stay fit, but an active sex life helps keep your heart healthy and happy as well. Just like any other form of exercise, sex increases your heart rate and blood flow. Advantage of regular sex is that it reduces your risk of a heart attack.

It’s true, sex helps you become gorgeous. Thanks to reduced stress, increased blood flow, and release of hormones like testosterone and estrogen, having sex often can give you a youthful glow. Regular sex helps make you look fresh and young, along with making  your skin softer and hair shinier. Stop splurging on all those beauty products and go get naughty instead!

Sex Benefit 5. Better Immunity

Another advantage of sex is that having sex frequently helps boost your immunity as it increases antibody levels, like immunoglobulins. This means fewer sniffles during flu season and also less chances of contracting cancer. After all, there is nothing sexy about runny noses.
