Sounds too good to be true, but nope!

We already know that sex is healthy — it reduces pain, gives your heart a boost and makes you feel happier.

But aside from those obviously sexy reasons to get it on, there’s a whole world of additional health benefits … if you’re willing to get a little kinky.

 

Here are 6 dirty details about the little-known healthy side effects of wilder, kinky sex.

1. Swallowing semen prevents miscarriages and pre-eclampsia

To swallow or not to swallow? That's a big question for a lot of women, but if you're pregnant you might want to go with the latter. Swallowing semen prevents miscarriages and preeclampsia. 

Yes, you read that right. A study by Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands found that women who swallowed had lower incidences of those two difficult conditions during pregnancy, possibly as a result of exposure to the father's DNA.

Dutch researchers have further shown that women who practice oral sex and swallow regularly are less likely to suffer from preeclampsia or miscarriage because of the body’s well-known ability to tolerate things better when they enter through the mouth.

Plus, men tend to think swallowing is pretty sexy ...

2. Oral sex can lift your mood.

Another little-known health benefit of semen: vaginal, oral or skin contact with semen can have anti-depressant qualities, according to a study by the State University of New York. Semen contains chemicals known to increase affection and elevate mood. It even contains a natural antidepressant and sleeping aid. It’s definitely more fun than a pill!

To ensure a happy ending, always use a condom unless you know for sure your partner doesn’t have any STIs. 

 

3. Let it fly...

Guys, this one’s for you: ejaculating often, especially when you’re young, can help you avoid prostate cancer when you get older. The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that found a correlation between frequent ejaculations and a lower risk of cancer.

Men who came 21 times or more a month were less likely to get prostate cancer, whether they masturbated or had fun with a friend.

4. More kink = less crazy!

A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that on a self-reported test, people who practice BDSM on a regular basis are less neurotic, more open, more secure in their relationships and have an overall better sense of well-being than people who only practice vanilla sex.

The theory is that kinky people have better communication skills and are more aware of their own psychology because they've learned to own it in a world where their desires aren’t the norm.

Pretty cool, huh?

 

5. Spanking increases joy.

Another benefit of kink is the release of endorphins, which come on hard and fast after a good spanking. (Or any kind of pain, according to the Novosibirsk Institute of Medicine).

Ever had that glowy, happy feeling after a good spanking? (If not, maybe you should give it a try!)

That’s what endorphins do!

6. The wider variety of sex positions in your playbook, the more orgasms in your playtime!

Want to have better sex? Try more kinky sex positions.

Those who switch it up when they have sex have a lot more fun — and more orgasms — according to the U.S. National Survey of Sexual Health.

So the next time you get it on in the sack, challenge yourself to try a couple more positions.

 

So... why are you still here?!

As you can see, being adventurous in bed can lead to many great health benefits, from miscarriage and cancer prevention to better mental health.
