Why sex??

Sex is not as basic as Maslow’s hierarchy of needs tries to present it. It is more than just gratification, it is health!

I know sex is often one topic left to marriage Counselors and peers because, the world over, sex is regarded as an adult thing that should be shoved away into the private domains of life. What many don’t know is that sexual activity is more than just the act of deriving sexual gratification and procreation-it actually has a lot of social and health benefits to those who engage in it.

  1. Sex Improves your Public Speech

For those who are keen about being public speakers, research has found out that having sumptuous sex a night before you deliver a public speech significantly improves on your oratory. If you have a keynote address to make, you are advised to have good and satisfying sex with your partner before you go to the podium. Your sense of humour will be a blast, and your oratory will be captivating to your audience.

 2. Sex Burns down calories and reduces cholesterol

Sex improves health in significant and amazing ways. If you are one of those who can’t commit yourself to a regular work out or exercise, having sex three times a week could effectively burn down your calories and reduce your cholesterol and ensure low risk of heart attack. It should also interest you to know that having sex twice or three times a week has the capacity to boost your immune system

3. Sex  is a sure way to a long life

Sexual activity makes one live longer because, sex is not only a mode of exercise, but the organs and systems in the body perform better and remain healthy because sex increases the supply of oxygen to the cells and stimulates the activity of various organs and systems within the body. In men it can reduce the risk of early death through prostrate cancer as a result of frequent ejaculation

4. Sex Reduces Painful Menstrual cycle and endometriosis in women

Among Women, regular sexual encounters promote female hormonal balance and reduce the risk of heart disease. Sexual activity also increases the level of estrogen in women and calms down painful menstrual. Above all, sexually active women have better posture because sex prevents endometriosis; a common gynaecological condition that force women to walk with a stoop.

 5. Sex Reduces Stress

Fifth, Sex is a fundamental stress reliever because the post sex relaxation is not only beneficial to the mind, improves blood circulation but it also relieves stress since it momentarily puts one in the mood bliss.

With these 5 reasons, the author is not in any way suggesting that you should begin to indulge recklessly into sexual activities. Sex is only available to those in a marriage relationship or at least a steady love relationship between two people. As soon as you begin to engage in sex with anybody wantonly, you will immediately turn sex into a deadly weapon that will deny you all the health benefits glamorized here. The disclaimer here actually is that sex can kill you very easily these days if you are not careful with it.
