      5 Reasons Sex Is
      Good For You
      By Laura Snyder
      Better sleep. A sexier physique. Stronger immunity. Sound like the effects of the latest wonder drug?
      Nope, it’s just the many physical benefits of having a satisfying sexual relationship.
      And all this time you were just making love because it was fun! If you‘re looking for more reasons to get
      romantic, consider the following:
      1. You‘re getting a good workout. Would you rather run 75 miles or have sex three times a week for
      one year? While both burn the same number of calories (about 7,500), one is decidedly more
      pleasurable than the other. Regular sex - which burns approximately 150 calories in a half-hour—is
      regular exercise. You’ll have all the same benefits of spending that time in the gym, including improved
      circulation, lower cholesterol and the release of feel-good endorphins.
      2. You won’t get sick. According to research by Dr. Carl Charnetski, professor of psychology at
      Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pa and co-author of Feeling Good is Good For You, people who
      reported one or two sexual episodes per week enjoyed higher levels of Immunoglobin A, the antibody
      that helps fend of illness.
      3. You’ll feel happier. In addition to the obvious boost in satisfaction, feeling secure in your
      relationship leads to a greater sense of well-being. Women in particular may see even more benefits.
      Researchers at the State University of New York at Albany found that women who regularly came into
      contact with semen were significantly less depressed than those who didn’t get a dose of those potent
      sex hormones and naturally occurring opiates.
      4. You’ll reduce stress. People who get it on regularly report that they handle stress better. The
      release of climax will get even the most anxious lover totally relaxed, and you know you’ll sleep better.
      5. You’ll live longer (and look younger!). A British study of 1,000 men found that those who had at
      least two orgasms per week had half the death rate of those who indulged less than once a month. Sex
      can make you look younger, too, according to neurophysiologist David Weeks, who found that men and
      women who reported having sex an average of four times per week looked approximately 10 years
      younger than they really were.
