Reduces Your Chances of Developing Prostate Cancer

According to a study published in European Urology in 2016, there may be a link between a healthy sex life and your chances of developing prostate cancer. The study showed that men that experience more organsms throughout their adult life were less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. 

Improves Your Sleep

When you experience an orgasm, your body releases the hormone prolactin which makes you feel relaxed and sleepy. According to the National Sleep Foundation, sex also reduces your cortisal levels, a stress-related hormone, and boosts oxytocin which makes you feel a stronger connection to your partner. When these hormones are all combined, it leaves you in a state of relaxation and euphoria. And according to this article, the connection between sex and sleep can work both ways. The more rested you are, the more likely you are to be in the mood. 

Keeps Your Blood Pressure at a Healthy Level

As we’ve discussed, sex can reduce your cortisol levels and enduce the release of oxytocin, but sex also encourages the release of endorphins. This means that sex can reduce your stress levels as well as prevent your blood pressure from increasing during stressful situations. The effect of sex on blood pressure was examined in a study published in the journal, Biological Psychology, where they found a positive correlation between having sex and healthy blood pressure reactivitiy. 

Improves Heart health

Sex raises your heart rate and can give you quite a work out which is great for your heart. In addition, sex can keep your testostorone levels in balance. Low testosterone levels have been linked to problems like heart disease as well as osteoporosis. According to an article posted by John Hopkins Medicine, sex is a form of excerise and can help lower your blood pressure, releive stress, improve sleep, and strengthen your heart.
