Five Reasons Men Need to be Doing It Regularly

There are several health benefits of sex for men.  Sex is a normal and natural part of life and therefore it is only fitting that sex will have some effects (good and bad) on the body. Just as walking, eating, sleeping, exercise have health benefits for the body, sex too has health benefits as well. Ever heard of the term sexual healing? Well it’s not just a saying, it is a fact. Sex is good for the heart, regulates the blood pressure, reduces stress, improves the immune system, it burns calories, it promotes faster healing of wounds and can keep you looking young.

Here are the Top Five Reasons Men Need to be Having Sex Regularly

 

1. Heart Health

1-lower-blood-pressureIt is a well know fact that regular sexual activity helps stimulate the heart and promotes a generally healthier heart.  An article in the American Journal of Cardiology shows that men who have sex at least twice a week are more likely to have a healthier heart than men who don’t.  Of course there are a dozen other factors that can effect the heart like smoking, overeating, lack of exercise and so on.  But if you lead an all-round healthy lifestyle a good roll in the hay can keep the doctor away.  Regular sex also keeps testosterone in balance, which is good for your heart.

2. Regulates Blood Pressure

lower-blood-pressureMany people know that high blood pressure can adversely affect your sex life.  But did you know that regular sexual activity, and specifically intercourse, can lower blood pressure?  That’s right.  Research shows that sexual intercourse (not masturbation) lowers systolic blood pressure, releases anxiety, lowers stress hormones, and can help people cope with mental pressure for at least a week. In the study carried out at the University of the West of Scotland, 46 men and women were put in a stressful situation involving speaking and wrking math problems in front of a tough audience. Participants were also asked to keep a diary of their sexual activity for two weeks prior to the test. Those who had sex were the least stressed out, and their blood pressures returned to normal faster after the public speaking test. “People who had penile-vaginal intercourse did twice as well as people who only masturbated or had no sex at all,” according to the lead researcher, Stuart Brody.

3. Intercourse a Day Keeps the Doctor Away.

Did you know that sex actually promotes general well-being and gives your immune system a good boost.  Yes, that’s right, a study at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania showed that men who have sex at least once or twice weekly (of course the more the merrier) have better immune responses than people who have sex less than once a week.  Test subjects in the study were asked to provide saliva samples and a description of their sex life over the previous 30 days.  Almost one third of the subjects (30 percent) showed that they had more of the antigen immunoglobulin A (IgA) than the others.  What was the difference in this group of subjects – they had more sex than the rest.

Other studies show that happy relationships are good for health. Think about, many researches have shown that stress is not good for the body.  And having a happy and stable relationship is one less stressful thing to get worked up about.  University of Pittsburgh scientists delivered live cold viruses up the noses of volunteers in a study they performed. Those who reported having strong ties with lovers, friends, and family were the least likely to catch a cold.  Now isn’t that fabulous!  So off you go! Go right now and make up with anyone who you are having a quarrel with, it’s what the doctor orders.  Oh, and if it happens to be your lover, better yet, go have sex with them right now.  There’s nothing better that make up sex.  And remember to take along a fun play toy with you.  Tell them your doctor prescribed it.

4.  Sex is Great for Your Prostrate

Prostate Milking

Do you even know what the prostate is?  Well it’s that walnut sized organ just at the back of your rectum under your pubic bone.  It’s what people call the male G-spot and why gay men enjoy anal sex so much.  Did you know that nearly 13% of men are typically diagnosed with prostate cancer each year.  That’s 455 million men every year worldwide, according to the National Institute of Cancer.  And did you know that beside prostate cancer you can also suffer from an enlarged prostate.  Enlarged prostate occurs in 50 percent of men age 51 to 60, 69 percent of men age 61 to 70, and in 90 percent of men age 80 or older.  But what your doctor won’t tell you is that regular sex can help maintain a healthy prostate and even reduce the risk of prostate cancer.  A study from Harvard Medical School found that men who averaged having 4.6 to 7 ejaculations a week were 36 percent less likely to receive a prostate cancer diagnosis before the age of 70. That’s great new for you guys.

Apart from regular sex, did you know that prostate milking (the stimulation or massaging of the prostate with an external object such as a finger, adult male sex toys or penis) can actually improve the health of your prostate and reduce the risk of cancer?  So apart from going to the doctor to have this medical procedure done you can actually do it yourself using an adult male sex toy such as a dildo or aneros or engaging in anal play with your girlfriend or your gay partner.  Yes, straight men do engage in anal play too.

5.  Sex is Better than A Sleeping Pill

napThis is absolutely one of the benefits of sex that impacts me in my daily life.  Since a child I have suffered from chronic insomnia.  I’ve tried all sorts of sleeping pills both over the counter and prescription.  I even tried natural remedies such as the leaves of the soursop fruit tree (a tropical fruit).  Nothing works better that a good sexual session with my partner.  I usually knock right out within a few minutes.  Even masturbation works, although not as effective.  Don’t take my word for it, the experts also agree.  After sex, medical experts state that the relaxation-inducing hormone prolactin is released, which may help you to nod off more quickly. The “love hormone” oxytocin, released during orgasm, also promotes sleep.  In addition, there’s the physical exertion which makes you feel drained.  So off you go.  Have some mind blowing sex, put on something comfortable, or nothing at all and loll away in lala land.

    Brilliant Kay, I don’t get nearly enough nowadays as the kids are very young and they are in and out all the time during the night, biggest problem is to find the quiet time and not being so tired with such a lack of sleep! I must print this off and give to herself – hopefully it works, great 5 reasons, I agree 100% with them all – thanks!

    HI,
    I am happy to have found your website (even thought of starting a similar website myself)
    I really do agree with what you are saying here. Sex is a great way to make you feel happy and increase physical well being. There is one obstacle though. My wife does not want sex anywhere near as often as I do. Once we get to it, it is quite satisfactory but it does not happen often enough. In the first few years of our marriage sex was fantastic but after the birth of our first child, things have not been the same.
    Do you have any tips for how to increase the lust of a woman? I have tried the e-book “Revive Her Drive” but I don’t really understand how to make it work.
    Thanks for a great article.

      Hi Jojo,

      Thanks for stopping by. I am delighted that you found our site beneficial. Sex and marriage is a really complex creature, especially when you add children to the equation. A lot of men have the same complaints as you do. I even know of one case where the woman didn’t want to have sex anymore after the child was born. So count yourself lucky. Check out this article that we wrote on how to spice up your relationship – https://jaynkay.com/7-easy-ways-to-spice-up-your-s… It may or may not be useful but it’s a start.

      You just gave us some homework to do. You’re not the first person to ask about that. So keep posted. We’ll interview some of our female friends to get their perspective as well as do some research on the subject matter.

    I think the health benefits of sex have been understated as you don’t hear about it too much, so it’s good your post highlights how good it is for your overall health.

    Raising awareness on how good sex can be for your heart, blood pressure, prostrate and for your sleep will encourage more people to have sex which helps leads to happy relationships.

    The good thing about this is, it’s a more natural way to stay healthy, no tablets and pills needed, so thank you for the reminder on how good it is for the body.

    • Kay says:

      Thanks Adrian for your comment. I think the topic of sex is still in the dark ages for many people. Somehow people are afraid to talk about sex, even though we all think about it and do it all the time. We need to start embracing sex as a normal and natural part of our existence. More open minds would lead to happier people. And yes sex does have some great health benefits, so people need to start understanding and embracing that too.

    Well, this can only be good for women too! I really didn’t know there were so many benefits for men. I am sure there are a handful of benefits for women too? I agree, that it is better than a sleeping pill! Any day!

    • Kay says:

      Thanks for stopping by. Yes, sex has multiple health benefits for women too. But somehow I find that women are better able to embrace their sexuality compared to men. And that includes the health aspects as well. For example, somemen who suffer from ED or prostate issues wait until the last minute to go to the doctor. Women have a faster response time to their bodies where health is concerned. Not sure why that is, but I suspect that men have too much false pride. Who knows.
