So you want to get laid on a regular basis (who doesn’t?). But you don’t want to be seen as just some horny being preoccupied with nothing more than sexual gratification. Don’t worry. There are several excuses, legitimate ones at that, that you can slap on the faces of people who tease you about your very active sex life, which they are probably green in envy of in the first place. Here are some of them:
1. Sex is a natural beauty treatment
A roll in the hay triggers the production of the hormone estrogen in women, giving them shiny hair and smooth skin.
2. Sex relieves headaches
Have a headache? Reach for your partner, not a box of painkillers. Sex releases the tension that restricts blood vessels in the brain, effectively relieving headaches.
3. Sex is a natural antihistamine
Unclog stuffy noses, as well as battle hay fever and asthma with a night of energetic sex.
4. Sex improves your sense of smell
The production of the hormone prolactin soars after a lovemaking session, which in turn triggers the development of new neurons in the brain's smell center.
5. Sex boosts the immune system
According to a study conducted by Pennsylvania’s Wilkes University, people who get lucky once or twice a week show 30% higher levels of immunoglobulin A, an antibody that boosts the immune system. That means less frequent colds and flu. Imagine what it’s like for people who have sex every single day.
6. Sex cures mild depression
Endorphins, that feel-good chemical produced by the human body, are released into the bloodstream with sex, thereby giving a person that feeling of euphoria and sense of well-being.
7. Sex reduces heart disease/stroke risk
Men who have sex three or more times a week reduce their risk of heart attack or stroke by half, says a 2001 Queens University study. Supporting that is the fact that sex also balances out the good cholesterol to bad cholesterol ratio, as well as reduces the body’s overall cholesterol count.
8. Sex leads to better teeth
Erm, you see, zinc, calcium and other minerals shown to retard tooth decay can be found in seminal plasma. You get the picture.
9. Sex is the best exercise
This one is pretty much clichéd, but undoubtedly true. A round of hot, passionate sex stretches and tones up just about every single muscle in your body.
10. Sex may lead to a longer life
A British study conducted on 3,500 people concluded that sex actually slows the aging process. If that isn’t a good enough excuse yet to have sex regularly, then I don’t know what is.
