Here are 10 reasons that might explain why and how orgasm beats stress:
1) Orgasms trigger hormones, like oxytocin, that can act as a natural sedative.
Oxytocin, released at climax, makes you feel sociable, content and more importantly to high stress folks, safe and relaxed. It’s why most of us want to nap after sex. It’s a natural antidote to stress-producing hormones. Stressed about a job interview or speaking engagement? Duck into the ladies’ room for a quick self-induced orgasm to relax!
2) Orgasms relieve pain, like headaches and menstrual cramps.
“I have a headache, not tonight dear.” A common infamous excuse when comes to having sex. Don’t avoid sex with a headache, have it! The body releases endorphins at climax, which will relieve pain and relax tight muscles that cause tension headaches. Menstrual cramps? Those same endorphins will reduce muscle cramps, too!
3) Orgasms help you look and feel younger.
We’ve all seen the change in a friend or partner who gets sex on a regular basis. Shiny hair and smooth skin, a byproduct of orgasm-induced estrogen production, make us glow. Orgasms produce pheromones, giving off a certain magnetism that attracts more sex, thus more orgasms. It’s a win-win!
4) Orgasms improve heart health.
Orgasms increase the heart rate and make your heart work harder, just as it does with any exercise. Orgasms will reduce blood pressure, also well for a healthy heart. It won’t replace an hour at the gym but, it sure is a lot more fun to exercise in bed!
5) Orgasms send more oxygen to your brain, increasing brain function.
The heart pumps faster and harder during sex and orgasm causes a rush of blood to the brain. More oxygenated blood to the brain means you’ll think clearer, be more creative and imagine ways you can have more sex and more orgasms!
6) Orgasms boost your immune system.
A healthy body is a strong body. A benefit of orgasm is the production of immunoglobulin A, key to a strong immune system. It won’t replace a flu shot, but next time you feel the sniffles coming on, try an orgasm to ward off the feeling.
7) Oxytocin strengthens your bond with your partner.
You and your partner will strengthen that shared bond by sharing orgasms. Intimacy will grow and the need to have more orgasms (an addictive pulls for sure!) will keep your bond strong.
8) Orgasms burn calories.
A vigorous round of sex will burn calories. How much depends on how vigorous of course. The muscles you use during sex will strengthen and your core muscle strength will increase flexibility. More flexibility means more sex, which increases muscle strength and well…you get the message.
9) Orgasms can make you or your partner less likely to cheat.
Sex is the glue that holds relationships together. It’s important to build the relationship, to maintain it when life pulls us in different directions, and to build intimacy between couples. Strong sexual intimacy makes it really hard to cheat.
- Orgasms relieve chronic stress.
Occasional stress is part of life; the traffic jams on the way to work, raising a family, paying bills. Stress that never ends, like unhappy marriage, medical problems, stressful work environment, will create any number of health conditions from high blood pressure to damaged immune system. An orgasm will relax you and allow you the opportunity to reduce stress in your life without use of drugs or alcohol.
