Most of us assume that anything that feels good cannot be at all. Well, it’s time to get away from that logic because something that feels good can actually be beneficial to your health. We are talking about sex here, specifically safe sex.
Have you ever heard of the cliché “Touch heals”? The chemical composition of your body actually changes when you touch it. Stroking, hugging, stroking, and cuddling all have the ability to change the chain of reaction of chemicals in your body. The results are amazing: strengthened emotional bonds and improved overall health and mood.
Does sex play an important role in weight loss and lowering cholesterol levels? If it does. The average number of calories burned during a 30 minute sex session is 150. When you compare it to other activities that you actually do on a daily basis, you will see that you burn more with sex than with the rest. Housework can burn just 111 calories, Yoga 114 and dancing 129 calories. Actually, sex is said to be a legitimate form of exercise that lowers cholesterol.
Sex not only burns energy, but it also helps improve circulation. The deep breathing and increased heart rate that occurs during a 30-minute session help increase blood flow throughout the body. Then it supplies fresh oxygen, hormones, and nutrients to the brain and other organs. The rate at which waste deposits are removed from your body system also increases, resulting in weight loss and prevention of fatigue and illness. Lastly, you sleep better after a 30-minute lovemaking session. You would sleep more and peacefully thanks to the soothing afterglow.
Whether you are making love to your partner or even during the orgasm itself, you are actually burning calories and reaping the benefits.
