Benefits of Sexual Intimacy
This article is devoted to the benefits of having intimacy with your partner. Who would ever imagine that an activity that is so much fun could be so beneficial to your health.
Sexual intimacy is a form of exercise. Each time that you engage in the sex act you burn approximately 100 calories. Of course, if you have sex like Lady Chatterly’s Lover, then it’s a lot more. Now 100 calories a pop doesn’t sound like much, but if you engage in sex 2-3 times a week, that’s 5000-7500 calories a year. That’s equivalent to the energy required to jog from New Orleans to Mobile, Alabama.
In addition to the aerobic work out of huffing and puffing and increasing your heart rate, sexual activity provides resistance training. This is the contraction of the muscles of the back, pelvis, and extremities against passive resistance.
Another advantage of regular sex is that it can actually lower your total cholesterol level, and increase the high-density lipoproteins (HDL) or the good cholesterol. So if you indulge yourself in an extra steak with butter, indulge yourself in extra sex and you’ll be calorically even.
