A Big-O a day won’t just leave you feeling less stressed and more satisfied, it can have major benefits to your mind and body, supercharge yourself with a little self love. Here’s how orgasms can help you turn into a super hero.
1. Get a Super Body
According to the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy regular loving, both by yourself and with a partner is connected to smaller hip and waist circumference for all genders. On top of that a 30 minute session of self love can burn up to 200 calories, that’s almost as much as a half hour run. <use italics and bold to highlight key takeaways
2. Feel no pain
This one is for the women. Orgasms have been proven to give powerful pain relief, orgasms release a hormone that can increase your pain tolerance by over 100% and since the effect is anelgesic (not anesthetic) meaning you won’t lose any sensation of touch, thank goodness for that.
3. Be one of the good guys
It’s no secret that it’s easier to get along with people when you’re in a good mood and studies have shown strong links between an active sex life and feelings of well being. Amongst other things this is linked to our old friend oxytocin, such a good little hormone. So flash that winning smile, you’ve earned it
4. Live forever
Well maybe not forever, but a study conducted on over 900 men showed that those who orgasmed at least twice a week had a 50% lower mortality risk than those with less frequent orgasms. Orgasms also release oxytocin (the “cuddle” hormone) which has been shown to reduce blood pressure and risk of heart attacks.
5. Fight the bad guys
Well the bad bugs at least, sexually active people (that’s still you you stud of a self lover you 😉 ) surprisingly take less sick days. Orgasms have been shown to increase important antibodies that can fight off sickness including the common cold, who says we don’t have a cure yet!
