Why You Should Have Sex Every Day (Amazing Health Benefits)

You probably do not know that having sex every day makes you look younger, healthier, stronger and even live much longer than those who don't have sex regularly.

Having sex daily makes you and your partner feel incredible about each other, it elevates your mood, it connects you through intimacy and benefits your mind and body. At the same time, regular sex gives you and your partner the physical, mental and emotional boost.

But before practising everyday sex or sexual activities, remember that consent is a paramount prerequisite and to attain consent you need to ask your partner about it and how they like you to approach the whole process.

Some partner like long foreplay before sex because it gives them pleasure or brings them into the mood, others may just want a spontaneous or quickie and some like both in no particular order.

Although, sex is quite crucial and one of the toughest things to discuss with a partner especially if what you want to discuss involves them changing their bedroom behaviour.

Meanwhile, regular discussions about sex help partners to build a happy relationship, while having sex regularly helps to build a healthy relationship by bringing couples closer to each other’s desires, preferences and ensure you are both getting the ultimate satisfaction.

Why You Should Be Having Sex Every Day

Did you know having sex everyday could give you the boost that you need? Now you know, so regardless of your gender, you should be having sex regularly. Here are 10 healthy reasons why you should have sex every day with your partner.

Keeps Your Heart Healthy

Daily sex does wonders for your heart and reduces risks of heart-related diseases such as stroke and blood pressure. During sexual activity, you tend to breathe intensely, this singular act works as a form of respiratory exercise and makes your heart function better.

Lots of studies have proven that regular sex can ward off heart attacks, therefore, the more you have sex the more you see your heart getting better and stronger. According to a study carried out by Queen’s University Belfast revealed that having sex three times a week could halve your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Another study in Israel found that women who had two orgasms a week are less likely to have heart disease than those who did not enjoy sex or didn’t have an orgasm. At the same time, men who have sex more than twice a week, have a lesser risk of getting a heart attack, than men who do it just once a month.

Boost Immune System And Longevity

Regular sex is an automatic immune booster, the more you have sex the more your body produces chemicals, hormones and antibodies which released antigen such as immunoglobulin A (IgA) that is responsible for strengthening the immune system.

Research carried out at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that participants who had sex once or twice a week had 30% higher levels of IgA than those who had sex less frequently. So feeling down or cold? Have a round of hot sex.

Everyday sex increases the level of the immune-boosting antibody which in turn makes your body stronger against illnesses like the common cold and fever. When you have an orgasm, a hormone called dehydroepiandrosterone is released.

This improves immunity, repairs tissue and keeps the skin healthy. Men, who have at least two orgasms a week, live longer than men who have sex just once every few weeks.

It Aid Good Sleep

There are a couple of hormones responsible for getting good sleep and they include melatonin, serotonin,  endorphins and oxytocin, all of these can be achieved through regular sex

Naturally, everyday sex makes your body release happy hormones that boost your intimacy and urge for doing the act repeatedly. These sex hormones aid better sleep. Seratonin helps to make you feel calm and relaxed and the body produces this chemical in the brain as a pleasure response, and it is released during orgasm/ejaculation. 

Melatonin on the other hand helps to produce hormones that regulate sleep and maintain the circadian rhythm of the body. An increased serotonin level may also lead to an increase in melatonin level, which further induces sleep.

While, Oxytocin, also known as the love hormone, can help you get some shut-eye as well. That happy-lovey-dovey feeling you get during or after sex is the result of oxytocin coursing through your bloodstream. It helps to reduce stress, lowers blood pressure, and makes it easier for you to fall asleep.

Haven't you noticed that the sleep you get immediately after you have sex is much more relaxed and makes you feel alert when you wake? Getting a good night’s sleep works on your overall health, so have more sex regularly.

Regular Sex Reduce Pain 

Having a severe headache, acute pain or suffering from menstrual torture? Sex can help you get rid of all of these, having sex during your period has been proven to ease the pain because when you are about to have an orgasm the level of oxytocin and endorphin hormones produced increases by five times and helps you reduce aches and pains.

Trust me, it is more fun than using pain relief drugs, although it could be an uncomfortable feeling to have sex during your menstruation, it really helps and there are fewer risks of getting pregnant during this period. All you need to do is to wash out the blood thoroughly before engaging in the act to avoid any form of irritation. 

“Orgasms can block pain. We have found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain and many women have stated that genital self-stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headache,” according to the neuroscience behind orgasms and pain response carried out by Dr Barry Komisaruk of Rutgers University.

Builds Emotional Intimacy

Regular sex helps both partners to strengthen their emotional bond and intimacy. Remember, copulating is not merely about physical intimacy and reproduction purpose alone, my dear sex goes beyond that.

For any relationship to be successful, it is important that the people involved are emotionally on the same page and having sex is a great way to build that emotional intimacy.

Boost Your Fertility

If you are trying to achieve pregnancy or you want your offspring to look fresh and beautiful, you need to keep your sperm fresh in tip-top shape by having sex at least twice a week, not only during her ovulation but steadily.

This may sound odd or bizarre to your hear, but that is the truth,  studies have proven that the more often you make love, the better quality your sperm will be.

Semen health was found to be best when sex had last occurred less than two days before the sperm was tested and was greatly decreased after 10 days of abstinence. Regular sex has also been found to help balance a woman’s hormones and regulate her periods, which can further boost the chances of conceiving.

Lowers Risk Of Prostate Cancer

A state study from Harvard Medical School shows that men who ejaculated more often automatically reduced their risk of having prostate cancer by 22 per cent than men who don't.

Researchers at Nottingham University have also found out that men who enjoy a regular sex life in their 50s are at lower risk of developing prostate cancer. This is because sex clears the prostate of toxins that could ­otherwise linger and trigger ­cancerous changes.

The link was first suggested after several studies showed that monks appeared to have a higher chance of developing prostate cancer.

Build Mental Stability

Mental stability is another healthy way partners have to regularly engage in sexual activity since research has shown that having sex every day or regularly can restore all your mental health, renew your positive thoughts and strengthen your mind to accommodate innovations and ideas. 

When stressed, tired or not feeling right about yourself, regular sex can easily heal you, cuddling alone can help you release Oxytocin and dopamine hormones which will melt all your stress away instantly.

Daily sex reduces stress by increasing endorphins-hormones that are responsible for boosting sex moods. Don’t forget that sex is a form of exercise that is responsible for reducing stress and keeping you calm. Every time you are under stress, just make love with your partner, it is the fastest yet healthiest way to beat stress.

Physical Improvements

Lastly, sex helps to enhance physical and mental improvement, sex is known to be one of the best ways to build your muscle, doing workout and exercise because copulating strengthens your cardiovascular system, from your back, leg to your hip as well. 

So, If you find going to the gym awkward or working out at home a task, here is another healthy way to help you lose weight and keep you in shape. Half an hour of lovemaking has been proven to burns more than 80 per cent calories, consequentially, sex will do wonders for your waistline.
