Do You Sexercise?
A romp between the sheets can actually lower your risk of a heart attack and help prolong your life, according to a new National Health Service report out of the UK. What’s more, endorphins released during orgasm stimulate immune system cells, which also helps target illnesses like cancer, as well as wrinkles.
Because sex utilizes every muscle in your body while working your heart and lungs hard, the activity burns about 300 calories an hour (about 50 calories for every 10 minutes of play, if that’s a better guide).
The NHS goes on to say that orgasms release “painkillers” into the bloodstream, which help keep mild illnesses like colds, aches, and pains at bay. And the production of extra testosterone hormones “will keep your bones and muscles healthy, leaving you feeling fabulous inside and out.”
The bottom line: Forward this article to your significant other. It just may help you kick up the heat in your home.
