- A Boost to the Immune System
- Lower Blood Pressure
- Extra Cardio
- Lower Heart Attack Risk
- Lower Prostate Cancer Risk
Men who have sex regularly take fewer sick days and have greater protection from germs and viruses than those who do not, according to a study done by researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania. While eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep are important for boosting the immune system, regular sexual activity can be the icing on the healthy lifestyle cake.
Recent studies have also found links between sexual activity and blood pressure. One study in particular showed a connection between sexual intercourse and lower systolic blood pressure.
While medical professionals caution that sex should not replace regular cardiovascular exercise, it can be an adjunct to regular exercise. Specifically, sex burns about five calories per minute–which is four calories more per minute than the average person burns if spending that same amount of time on the couch. Not only does sex increase heart rate, but it also involves using a variety of muscles throughout the body.
Regular sex can actually help balance estrogen and testosterone levels for men. When these hormones are in balance, heart disease risk is reduced.
In addition to reducing heart attack risk, a healthy sex life can also lower prostate cancer risk. Believe it or not, research shows that an increase in sex drive is enough to reduce risk, even without regular intercourse.
