Improves Bladder Control

According to Healthline, the act of sex can help strengthen your pelvic floor. In addition, the contraction of muscles during an orgasm can have a similar effect. Women who participate in a healthy sex life can improve their bladder control and reduce the risk of incontinence.

Strengthens Your Immune System

Sex can help improve your sleep, reduce your stress levels, and even keep your blood pressure at a healthy level, which can all help give your immune system a boost. But the effect of sex on your immune system goes much further than that. A study published in 2004 by the Department of Psychology at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania, showed that individuals who reported having frequent sex, one to two times a week, actually had higher levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA) in their saliva. IgA is an antibody that plays a crucial role in the immune function of the mucous membrane. According to this study, a healthy sex life can quite literally strengthen our immune systems.

Relieves Pain

According to Psychology Today, the act of sex and physical touch between loving partners can release oxytocin, serotonin, phenylethylamine, and endorphins. Oxytocin is also known as the cuddle hormone because it helps us bond with our partner. It also reduces cortisol levels and blood pressure. It’s even currently being studied for the treatment of neuropathic and inflammatory pain. Additionally, serotonin is known as a happy chemical and is one of our body’s natural antidepressants. Phenylethylamine can also be found in chocolate and is known for activating the brain’s pleasure center. And finally, endorphins are known as the body’s natural painkillers. During sex, when these hormones are released, they may help you find relief from headaches, migraines, and menstrual cramps.

Boosts Your Libido

Having sex can actually increase your sex drive and give your libido a boost. Women who have a healthy sex life can benefit from increased vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity. All of these factors can help you enjoy sex more and be in the mood more often.

Strengthens Your Relationship

A healthy sex life can also strengthen your relationship with your partner. According to an article published by Psychological Science, sex activates the dopamine and oxytocin receptors in the brain making sex more rewarding. This article also explains that this reaction to sex may be biologically based to encourage couples to remain together to raise children. Whether or not you have children with your partner, the reward center of your brain is activitated by participating in sex and this causes us to form a closer bond with our partner.
