Can sex truly improve your health? Dr. Nguyen says, “ABSOLUTELY!” There are several hidden health benefits of love making that spread far beyond our bedroom walls. Are you getting your daily dose? Here are the Top 12 Health Benefits of Love Making:
1.) Boosts Your Immune System
Have you been saving your sick leave for that 8-day cruise around the Caribbean? Well, get busy in the bedroom! According to sexual health expert Yvonne K. Fulbright Ph.D., “sexually active people take fewer sick days.”
Who could have guessed that a half-hour of fun in the sheets with your significant other could burn off the vanilla ice cream you ate last night? For instance, WebMD estimates that sexual intimacy uses about 5+ calories per minute, meaning thirty minutes of sex can burn about 150 calories or more. Even though it may not sound like much, it definitely adds up.
3.) Lowers Your Blood Pressure
Normalize your blood pressure by spicing up your sex life! Can sex lower blood pressure? Yes! Dr. Joseph J. Pinzone, CEO & Medical Director of AMAI Wellness, believes there is a strong connection between sex and lower blood pressure. “There have been many studies,” he says, “One landmark study found that sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure.”
4.) Improves Your Libido
Lost that frisky feeling? Wondering how to improve your sex drive? Then set up your room for some romance! Dr. Lauren Streicher, Associate Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern University’s medical school, trusts “having sex will make sex better and will improve your libido.” For instance, women, having sex reduces vaginal dryness, enhances vaginal lubrication blood flow, and elasticity, Streitcher adds, all of which make sex feel better and help you crave more of it.
5.) May Help Reduce Acne
Dr. Agnes of AcnEase (natural herbal acne treatment) believes sex can benefit your skin and help prevent or treat acne. Engaging in intercourse helps with hormonal imbalances and, consequently, lessens acne’s appearance; it also increases blood flow, which helps skin reduce toxins while boosting the levels of immunoglobulin, an antibody that fights off bacteria in the body.
6.) Decreases Risk of Heart Disease
In addition to raising your heart rate, sex also helps balance your estrogen and testosterone levels. “When either one of those is low, you begin to get lots of problems, like osteoporosis and even heart disease,” Pinzone adds. According to research, men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who rarely had sex.

7.) Relieves Pain
Are you thinking of taking Tylenol or Advil? Consider a more, well, natural solution. “Orgasm can block pain,” says Barry R. Komisaruk, Ph.D., a well-known Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor at Rutgers. Because of this, it is a crucial health benefit of sex for females. “We’ve found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain, and many women have told us that genital self-stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headache,” Komisaruk says.
8.) May Help Reduce Risk of Prostate Cancer
One of the many sex benefits for men is that, even though there is no cure for prostate cancer, you can definitely lessen the chances of getting it! For instance, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found men who ejaculated recurrently (about 21 times per month) were less likely to be prone to prostate cancer.
9.) Promotes Sleep
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated lack of sleep is a known public health problem. In the United States, 50 to70 million adults reported having some type of sleep disorder. However, sex makes you feel more relaxed and therefore be receptive to sleep. Therefore if you have sex more frequently, you could get the suggested 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. “After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness,” says Sheenie Ambardar, a distinguished psychiatrist in California.
10.) Eases Stress and Anxiety
According to Dr. Zara Ambardar, a Cognitive Psychology Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, “touching and hugging can release your body’s natural ‘feel-good’ hormone.” For this reason, sex and intimacy can boost your self-esteem and happiness, too, Ambardar added.
11.) Boosts Brain Power and Function
Good sexual health equals improved brainpower! University of Maryland researchers found that engaging in sexual activity actually helps grow more neurons in the brain. Thus, consistent sex generates more brain cells in the area of the hippocampus.
12.) Gives a Younger “Glow”
As if the previously mentioned health benefits of sex were not enough, being sexual may also play a fundamental role in preserving a younger look, according to research published in Psychological Science. Partners can experience a sexual “afterglow” that lasts for up to 48 hours following sexual intercourse. Because sex increases blood circulation, it helps pump oxygen to our skin resulting in a brighter appearance.
And now you know the top 12 health benefits of love making!
