7 Reasons Why Sexual Health Is Important

Sexual Health Boca Raton, FL

Are you wondering just how important your sexual health is to your overall health? According to the American Social Health Association, the definition of sexual health is the ability to embrace and enjoy our sexuality throughout our lives, as it is an important part of our physical and emotional health.

While having sex with your partner is one of the best and most natural ways you can express your love, there are plenty of other healthful benefits that come with having regular sex.

Sexual health benefits

There are many benefits one can count on when couples are participating in regular sexual activities, even with low testosterone levels. This means there are many reasons for couples to participate in sex besides the sharing of love for each other in a physical manner.

Below are seven of the top reasons why prioritizing your sexual health is a great way to boost your overall health.

1. A stronger immune system

People who participate in regular sexual activities produce more and stronger antibodies, which play a very important role when it comes to defending the body against disease and infection.

2. Lowers blood pressure

Oxytocin, a powerful hormone which is released during an orgasm, has a direct and positive effect when it comes to lowering one's blood pressure.

3. Burns calories

Sex can certainly be considered as an exercising activity and so can burn lots of calories. Depending on the vigor, some studies show that about 24 minutes of sexual activity can burn as much as running on a treadmill for 30 minutes.

4. Lowers the risk of heart attacks

According to the Cleveland Clinic, a study which was published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that men who had sex at least twice a week were less likely to develop heart disease compared to men who only had sex once a month.

5. Supports a woman’s strong pelvic floor

Sexual activity can help make a women’s pelvic floor stronger, which reduces the chance of their experiencing a vaginal prolapse or experiencing any pain during sex.

6. Reduces the chance of prostate cancer

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association states that men who have sex at least 21 times a month are less likely to get prostate cancer.

7. Improves sleep

Having an orgasm releases the beneficial hormones, oxytocin and endorphins. When these two hormones are combined, the resulting effect is relaxation.
