Life’s stresses and strains have never been more prevalent. Pressure is a daily constant for both men and women as the pace of life continually quickens. This is why it is absolutely imperative to spend regular, intimate time with your partner. Daily sex will not only do your relationship the world of good it will help relieve the constant pressures and stress you are under and improve your health.

With that in mind let us look at 7 golden reasons why you can benefit from having sex each and every day of the week:

1. Relieving Stress

It is well known that during relaxing sex sessions your body produces three hormones which are vital to your well-being. These are: Endorphines which are more commonly known as “happiness hormones”. Oxytocin which is a hormone that is secreted by your pituitary gland and acts as a desire enhancer, and Dopamine which is a vital hormone in terms of fighting stress.

2. Lowering Blood Pressure

The medical term for High blood pressure is Hypertension. If you are constantly stressed this can contribute to an increase in your systolic and diastolic readings. Healthy blood pressure level are anything that show readings of 120/80 or lower.

The first (top) number being the systolic pressure. This is measured by the amount of pressure in your arteries when your heart muscles contract. The bottom number is the diastolic reading and is measured when your heart muscle is between beats.

It is known that sexual acts and hugs lower your diastolic blood pressure levels.

3. Healthier Heart

Sex helps to burn calories and improves your heart. Studies have revealed that men who have sex on a regular basis are far less likely to suffer from cardiovascular problems such as heart attacks and strokes.

4. Great form of exercise

We all know just how important regular exercise is, and making love is an excellent form of physical activity. During sex acts the changes in your body are similar to those which take place during a work-out session. Your respiratory rate rises, heavy breathing raises the levels of oxygen in your cells, and the testosterone produced during sex sessions helps to keep your bones and muscles strong.

5. Regular menstrual cycles

It is understood that regular sex helps to keep your periods regular. The reason behind this thought process is that sex helps to regulate hormones. In turn, this regulation helps further regulation of the menstrual cycle. Stress is one of the main reasons a woman misses a period, and as already mentioned; regular sex reduces stress.

6. Helps with sleep

Far too many of us do not get sufficient sleep. Regular, mutually enjoyable sex can help with this problem. During sex your heart rate increases and as things slow down you become far more relaxed and ready for a good sleep. It is also known that after ejaculation men become lethargic and far more prone to falling into a contented sleep.

7. Builds a bond of intimacy and trust

While the other six reasons are all valid in terms of daily sex, this final reason really is enough on its own. We have already mentioned the hormone Oxytocin. It is this hormone which plays a major part in your happiness and love. Regular sex with your beloved will help to increase the release of this hormone and bring you and your partner much closer together.
