3 Reasons You Should Be Having More Sex, According To Science
Sex is great, and even science agrees. Whether you’re looking for a workout or a way to appear younger, look no further than getting your rocks off.
Orgasms increase blood flow to all parts of the brain, and researchers say they’re better mental exercise than a crossword.
Sex releases DHEA, a natural steroid that keeps you looking young.
Studies have found that couples who have sex at least three times a week look more than 10 years younger than those who do not.
According to Dr Jennie Leslie, sex can be used to relieve period symptoms. Muscle contractions that occur during climax relieve tension in the muscles of the uterus. Meaning lighter, shorter periods.
Researchers at Columbia and Stanford also found that women who have sex at least once a week have more regular and predictable menstrual cycles.
Vaginal stimulation has been found to block chronic back pain, leg pain, and even headaches.
The surge of hormones is also linked to pain relief. “A study conducted at the Headache Clinic at Southern Illinois University found that half of female migraine sufferers reported relief after climaxing,” reports Women’s Health Magazine.
Studies have determined that regular sex is good for your skin.
Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, DC, toldLifestyle Mirror that “Regular sex increases blood flow and decreases stress hormones in the body, and those stress hormones wreak havoc on the skin.”
Dr Debby Herbenick found that morning sex boosts your mood and immune system for the rest of the day – better than a cup of coffee ever would.
People who regularly have penile-vaginal intercourse have lower blood pressure than those who do not.
Oxytocin, the hormone responsible for creating feelings of love, is elevated in men after sex. With elevated levels of oxytocin, studies have shown that men are less likely to want to stray from their partners.
So, sex literally drives men to be more committed to a relationship.
The more a man ejaculates, the lower his risk of getting prostate cancer.
One study showed that men who have had more than 20 sexual partners in their lifetime are up to 28% less likely to get prostate cancer.
Sex could prevent the common cold.
It boosts the body’s levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A, which can protect you from colds and flu.
Sex is considered moderate exercise and burns four calories per minute for men and three per minute for women.
It’s the equivalent of playing double’s tennis or walking uphill.
One study found that for hours after an orgasm, a woman’s gait changes into one that is taller and more confident than normal.
Men who have sex regularly are 45% less likely to develop life-threatening heart conditions.
The term “aphrodisiac” comes from Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of sexual love andbeauty, who (as myth would have it) rose out ofthe sea on an oyster shell and promptly gave birth to Eros — the god of love, sexuality and fertility.
Thismay explain why oysters are supposed to haveaphrodisiac qualities.
Science has not verified the aphrodisiac qualities ofoysters, nor, in fact, those of any other allegedaphrodisiac.
According to them, its all in the mind –if you think something is an aphrodisiac, you startbehaving like it is: mind over matter.
However,science doesn’t know everything,
so let’s assume for a minute that aphrodisiacs work as per mythand legend, keeping in mind that the brain is ourgreatest sexual organ.
Some foods are referred to as aphrodisiacs becausethey resemble human genitalia — bananas, cucumbers, and seafood like oysters and mussels.
Other substances, such as the essential oil ylang-ylang and some herbs, have an effect on thenervous system, producing calming, euphoricfeelings that can wash away negativity and stress,promoting intimacy and relaxation.
Other supposed aphrodisiacs are anchovies,Spanish fly, lard, and licorice. The definition ofaphrodisiac requires the substance to normallyproduce an increase in sexual desire, so alcohol isnot considered an aphrodisiac.
There arehundreds, if not thousands, of claimed aphrodisiacs, and science reckons they are allfolklore, despite large numbers of us still trying tofind the magic potion, lotion or pill to increase andimprove our sex lives.
APHRODISIACS ON AM Getting yourself or your partner into a more eroticframe of mind can sometimes be a challenge.Helping yourselves out with a few well-known (butunproven) aphrodisiacs may be worth a try — andit can’t hurt, right? Everyone is different, so find out what works foryou and your partner.
You could probably justmake it up as you go along — that’s what everyoneelse seems to have done. APHRODISIAC FACT Rhino horn is sometimes thought to be anaphrodisiac because of its phallic shape, but in factthe horn is eaten to increase libido.

An inspirational site on Love at Word press http://inspirationaldaily.wordpress.com/2012/05/16/there-is-only-one-happiness-in-life-love-and-be-loved-2/ – I express courtesy for the nice Picture on sands to this nice site.
Love is normally associated with the heart. But what is the heart? You are your heart. Human consciousness is the heart. You have two hearts – the physical heart and the spiritual heart. Your physical heart is not a source of love, it is simply a very powerful pump. Your spiritual heart is a source of love and you are it. Why? Because you are spirit or soul. This is important because it reminds you that you are love and you are a source of love. One of the natural qualities of the soul is love.
Thus, you don’t need love because you already have it! However, you don’t feel it. You normally believe that love and happiness are physical sensations and come from outside. That’s why attachment happens and our life becomes rather dry of real love. This false belief, that love comes from outside, eventually makes us turn our own life into one which is filled with sounds of ‘give me, give me, give me’! Its no wonder love is a rare experience because the moment our aim is to take we change the energy of our heart into fear.
The fear that we won’t get, the fear that if we do get it won’t be up to expectation and the fear that when we do get we might lose what we got! And we haven’t even got it yet! If only someone had told us that fear is the opposite of love.
Giving someone your Love is never an assurance that they will return it back to you.
Do not expect Love in return immediately…Just wait for it to grow in their heart… & the result will always be positive. Love is Life!
Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
