From my experiences as a sex columnist, it just never seems to amaze me of all the healthful reasons for having a plentiful sex life. The most recent Durex Global Sex Survey shows that there are unfortunately a number of countries that could use a little more effort in this arena. One of the most notable is the United States, which is quite frankly having a lot less sex than just about everyone in the world, and when they do finally get around to it, less than half are satisfied with their experiences.
Okay folks, this is serious. Sex is a very important, fundamental part of life. It is both healthy and green in many ways. How is it green? Who can deny the fact that a healthy individual treads a lighter carbon footprint by requiring a minimal amount of prescription drugs, less medical procedures, and has an all-around better attitude towards the environment and its inhabitants. So to help me get my point across, I am going to explain 15 glorious reasons why we should be doing a little less stressing, eating, and watching TV, and a whole lot more frolicking under the sheets!
1.Natural Stress Relief-
Stress is a leading cause of sickness
, yet most people are practically bathing in it daily. Sickness leads to doctors, prescription medicines, countless miles spent driving/flying to specialists, none of which are particularly the most pleasant or good for the environment. This is especially important to take heed during the difficult economic situation
we are facing at the moment. We need to take a break from all this stress and allow the body to unwind. Sex is one of the best ways to do this, and it is just not the act that is stress-free, but the wonderful afterglow which can sometimes last for hours!
According to a study at Queens University in Belfast, men who practice sex at least three times a week can cut their risk of heart attack and stroke by a lean and mean 50 percent. That's is a lot of guys!
3.Healthy, Drug-Free Baby Delivery-
Some pregnant women tend to shy away from sex as the weeks get down to that big day. However, truth be told, healthy sex throughout a pregnancy has been shown to sometimes help aid in a speedier labor and delivery. This can sometimes be just the boost a woman needs to tolerate a natural, drug-free birth.
4.Natural Cure for the Common Cold-
I bet you didn't know that sex was actually a natural immunity booster
for the common cold. Wilkes University in Pennsylvania has reported that having sex a minimum of once or twice a week can boost the immune system by up to 30 percent. Imagine what three or four times per week might do for you!
5.Healthiest Diet Plan You'll Ever Start-
Today's diet plans involve special dinners and drinks in wasteful packaging, over the counter pills, medical procedures... hold the phone folks! Just one 30-minute roll in the hay will burn off a minimum of 200 calories. Some positions can burn as much as 700 calories, it just depends on how wild of a monkey dance you want to get down with.
6.Simple, Clean Energy Booster-
Sex in the morning can often boost your energy level, but relationship expert, Scott Haltzman claims that the testosterone secreted in a man's seed can actually be absorbed by women and give them even more of a pick-me-up. Now I am not forgetting about the importance of safe sex, but if you are in a safe relationship that will allow such practice, this is just one more reason to get freaky before you start each day.
7.Natural Mood Improvement-
Sex can improve on a bad mood almost as much as a handful of chocolates can. Perhaps this is one of our main attractions to the post-argument make-up romp. The tactile stimulation in sex and sensual massage has a way of easing all those tense nerves which can stay indefinitely unless you make a conscious effort to rid yourself of their devious nature.
