Did you know that more than 70% of women struggle reaching an orgasm during sex?
Compared to a small percentage of men who struggle reaching an orgasm due to erectile dysfunction, which is often caused by hormonal problems or psychological reasons.
As I say, life is too short not to have an orgasm every day because an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away!
Besides the delicious pleasure that you receive from having an orgasm, there are a multitude of health benefits from having orgasms.
Here are the top 15 benefits of orgasms:
Orgasms release endorphins in your body, reducing your stress and tension, allowing you to relax and sleep better. Vasopressin, another chemical associated with sleep, is also released during orgasm. Another recent study shows that the tendency to fall asleep after sex is also associated with a greater desire for bonding and affection with your partner.
Women who have regular sex and orgasms show more favorable fertility markers compared to women practicing abstinence.
Orgasms release endorphins in your body that have a similar structure to morphine, and are indeed 3x stronger than morphine when it comes to relieving pain. Say bye-bye headaches and migraines.
The strength and intensity of an orgasm can help to relieve cramps by all the chemicals released in the body after having an orgasm. Women who masturbate often report it also helps to improve the symptoms of PMS, such as irritability, crankiness, and cravings.
Sex and orgasms increase blood flow to your pelvis, enhancing your circulation.
When you have sex, your sex hormones are alive and active – which are indirectly related to your stress hormones (aka cortisol). When one is high, the other is low. The higher your sex hormones are, the lower your stress hormones are.
Improves your mood
Orgasms reduce anxiety and make you happier due to the release of the happiness hormones (endorphins, dopamine & serotonin).
Boosts immunity & helps autoimmune symptoms
Having sex once or twice a week has been linked with higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A, or IgA, which can protect you from getting colds and other infections. Sex also stimulates the lymphatic system which transports white blood cells and helps the body filter toxins.
Makes you look & feel younger
Orgasms release anti-aging hormones that make your skin glow and reduces the effects or aging. This is due to the increase in DHEA levels during and after orgasm, which are associated with shiny hair and bright skin. Dr. Roizen, MD states that having sex at least twice a week can make your RealAge 1.6 years younger than if you had sex only once a week.
Reduces the risk of heart attacks
Studies show that sexually satisfied women are less likely to have a heart attack than those who feel deprived.
Reduces the appetite
Orgasms stimulate the release of oxytocin, the cuddle hormone. How is this related to your appetite? Well, to give you an idea of how potent this little hormone is, one study found that mice that had been bred without the oxytocin gene displayed a significantly enhanced intake of carbohydrates. The release of oxytocin may also shift our motivational behaviour from a desire to eat to a desire to reproduce. Oxytocin also counteracts anxiety and depression by lowering cortisol concentrations, which is well known for its role in boosting belly fat and cravings for carbohydrates. People often eat based on their emotions. If you feel satisfied, connected and full of energy – you don’t have a need to eat to fill the void that is inside of you.
Who needs the gym when you have sex? A normal act of sex burns 150 calories and hot, active, sweaty sexual intercourse burns more than 300 calories.
Relieves pain & inflammation
Besides the release of endorphins which have pain-relieving effects stronger than morphine, studies have also found oxytocin receptors in the gut, showing this powerful hormone can even calm gastrointestinal inflammation in mice, which causes abdominal discomfort and many gut disorders.
Increases your sexual desire & libido
Orgasms release anti-aging hormones that make your skin glow and reduces the effects or aging.
Increases your life expectancy so that you live longer
Frequent sex and orgasms have been associated with decreased mortality.
Anyone who doesn’t want to have an orgasm every day is out of their mind – it can get rid of your pain and help you live longer. Who wouldn’t want those benefits, right?
And when you learn how to live turned on and every moment of every day is orgasmic, you reap the benefits of having orgasms by having orgasmic, sexual energy flowing through your entire body.
Sexual energy, after all, is the most powerful healing force known to man, and was once considered the key to longevity and immortality.
If you’ve never experience the pleasure, let alone the health benefits of orgasms, then it’s easy to disregard sex and make excuses, such as “I have a headache.”
In my book, headaches or pain are not a good excuse to not have sex when sex could actually help to alleviate your headache and pain!
