Sex & Good Health


Good health certainly contributes to good sex. But did you know that sex also contributes to good health? Here are some facts that proves it.

  • Sex burns fat and boosts your immune system
  • Sex causes the brain to release endorphins – the body’s natural pain relievers.
  • Sex relieves stress and makes you feel good.
  • Sexually active people have higher levels of naturally produced sex hormones: the more sexually active you are, the more you will want to continue to be sexually active. In other words: Use it or lose it!
  • If you are sexually active throughout your life, the physical changes that come with aging may be  less pronounced and sexuality is usually less affected.
  • There is more to sex than penetration. There are many ways to be physically intimate, and they all contribute to your health and well-being.
  • Having sex takes up about as much energy as walking up two flights of stairs, so sex is rarely dangerous. But if you have any health-related concerns, consult your physician or other health-care professional.  
  • Being sexually active contributes to physical and emotional health. But remember, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) know no age boundary; so if you are sexually active always practice safe sex.
