(Laura Mitchell, Daily Star) Orgasms can help you look younger, ward off disease, stop junk food cravings, and even reduce the threat of prostate cancer.
Benefits of the orgasms include:
- Glowing skin
The ‘sex glow’, as some call it, is in part also caused by your body’s release of DHEA, which promotes healthy skin and improves your complexion.
- Weight loss
- Natural pain relief
Symptoms of pain can be relieved due to the release of oxytocin, a natural compound with analgesic properties.
- Fend off infection
People who have regular sex were found to have higher levels of immunoglobulin A, or IgA, an antibody that fends off infection.
- Improve blood flow
The flow of blood and fluid to the genitals increases during sex, carrying fresh oxygen and replenishing your resistance to infections.
- Ward off cancer
The National Cancer Institute found that an average of 21 ejaculations a month cuts the threat of prostate cancer by 33%.
