Are you exercising regularly? Eating right? Having regular sex?

Sex is not just for pleasure, procreation and fun; it’s also part of a healthy lifestyle. Here are seven reasons to have sex for the health of it, and notice that you don’t need another person to reap the rewards!

1. Pain relief. Orgasms switch your state of mind from pain to pleasure. Also, the contraction and relaxation of muscles can relieve cramps and some pain instantly.

2. Mood improvement. Are you feeling blue? Orgasms increase estrogen and endorphin levels, which improve a woman’s mood.

3. Increased emotional connection. Another hormone, oxytocin, which has often been called “natures bonding agent” increases up to five times at the point of orgasm.
