Research has found that sex has been found to positively affect a woman’s biological and psychological health in many different aspects. But what exactly are the scientifically proven benefits of sex, specifically for women?
Scientists conducting a study of over 25,000 Americans from 1989 to 2012 found that those who had sex at a frequency of once a week were the happiest.
Interestingly, the study found that having sex more than once a week didn’t lead to increased happiness.
The researchers state that the increase in happiness stems from the intimacy that partnered sex provides rather than the frequency of sex itself.
Sex improves brain functioning
A study examining sex and the brain found that women aged 50 to 90, who had sex, had a better recall (remembering past experiences or things) than those women who had no sex.
Another study found that women aged 18 to 29 who had heterosexual intercourse were better at remembering abstract words, suggesting that having sex may improve a woman’s memory.
Sex has many physical and psychological health benefits for women, which many scientific studies have proved.
Research has found that having regular sex aids sleep quality, strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, reduces incontinence, reduces the symptoms of migraines and hot flashes, improves cardiovascular health and brain functioning, and can make you feel happier.
