Sex also jump-starts your hormones.
Men can have a surge of testosterone during sex. Testosterone is the hormone produced in the testicles that is responsible for libido or sex drive, muscle mass, and strength of bones. Regular sex increases the level of estrogen in women which results in increase in the blood supply to the vagina keeping the vaginal tissues young, supple and moist. There is even evidence that sex prior to or at the time of the menstrual period may relieve the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). There are other studies that suggests that oxytocin, a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland during sexual intimacy, contributes to long-term bonding between partners.
Sexual intimacy also results in the release of endorphins which is the ultimate painkiller or analgesic. Endorphins are many times more potent that morphine, the most powerful man-made analgesic in use for the relief of pain. So the next time you have a headache, don’t turn down sex but turn on and your relief is just a >> away. There’s even a scientific explanation for the relief of headache pain with sex. During sex there is an increase in the blood supply to the muscles and the genital organs. As a result there is a decrease in the blood supply to the brain thus taking the pressure off of the tension in the brain.
