1. It Will Make You Feel Better. Having sex releases endorphins into your body, which are nature’s feel-good, pain-killing hormones. Sorry, ladies in sitcoms, but having a headache won’t get you out of having sex with your disproportionately uglier-than-you husband anymore. A study reported that among people who suffer from migraines, more than half experienced significant improvement in their symptoms if they had sex during an episode.
2. It Will Bring You Closer Together. When you orgasm, your system gets flooded with oxytocin, the hormone associated with bonding and attachment in men and women. Our brains want our emotional intimacy with whoever we’re banging to match the intensity of our physical intimacy, which oftentimes makes the sex that much better.
3. It Will Make You Giddy. All of the endorphins that you enjoy during and after sex help relieve stress. Dopamine in particular makes you feel so awesome that its effects have been compared to those of cocaine. It’s associated with romantic love, the kind that makes you dizzy, giggly and borderline obnoxiously in love your partner.
4. It Will Help You Stay Sexy. By having sex now, you’re basically guaranteeing yourself an abundance of tail in the future. Having sex slows the aging process. Volunteer judges in a few different studies guessed the ages of people having frequent sex as seven to twelve years younger than they actually were.
5. It Will Keep You Healthy. Regular sex can boost your immune system by up to 30%. Men who get lucky three times a week or more cut their risk of heart attack and stroke in half and frequent ejaculation can prevent prostate cancer. The orgasm wonder-hormone oxytocin also prevents breast cancer in women.
