What Is It About SEX? I Hate It!
Hey! Don’t say that! You may feel like that but I can bet your spouse doesn’t, so let’s back up a bit and understand that sex has its purpose in a proper setting for married couples and certainly has its benefits, ok?
Men and women are not wired the same way, and at times as women especially, when we reach menopause or get close to it, we feel out of sorts and don’t want to engage in sex or should I say lovemaking (sex being basic while lovemaking is much deeper). What do I mean? Making love is not limited to the physical. They can make love with their words, glances or in some other way. Sex however on the other hand is a physical act to a great extent. A story for another day…
For now let’s get back to looking at the benefits:
1) Couples who have sex more often have higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A which defends the body against germs, viruses, and other intruders.
2) Sex improves women’s bladder control – Orgasm during sex causes contractions in the pelvic muscles thus strengthening them. Weak pelvic muscles result in incontinence sometimes.
3) A landmark study found that it lowers blood pressure.
4) Do you know it also counts as exercise? You can lose 5 calories during the act so get cracking!
5) It lowers the risk of heart attack.
6) Sex helps keep your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance – note that when the level of either is low it results in other problems such as osteoporosis and heart disease.
7) Don’t ask me why but I understand that those who have sex frequently make happier couples.
8) It improves sleep: the feeling of relaxation and sleepiness which results after sex is as a result of a prolactin release.
So the next time you think you hate sex, think of all these benefits.
Have a great week and remain blessed.
