10 Surprising Health Benefits of SexSex does a body good in a number of ways, according to Joy Davidson, PhD, a New York psychologist and other experts. The benefits aren't just anecdotal or hearsay each of these 10 health benefits of sex is backed by scientific scrutiny.

Among the benefits of healthy loving in a relationship:

6. Sex Improves Intimacy

Having sex and orgasms increases levels of the hormone oxytocin, the so-called love hormone, which helps us bond and build trust. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of North Carolina evaluated 59 premenopausal women before and after warm contact with their husbands and partners ending with hugs. They found that the more contact, the higher the oxytocin levels.

"Oxytocin allows us to feel the urge to nurture and to bond," Britton says.

7. Sex Reduces Pain

As the hormone oxytocin surges, endorphins increase, and pain declines. So if your headache, arthritis pain, or PMS symptoms seem to improve after sex, you can thank those higher oxytocin levels.

In a study published in the Bulletin of Experimental Biology and Medicine, 48 volunteers who inhaled oxytocin vapor and then had their fingers pricked lowered their pain threshold by more than half.

8. Sex Reduces Prostate Cancer Risk

Frequent ejaculations, especially in 20-something men, may reduce the risk of prostate cancer later in life, Australian researchers reported in the British Journal of Urology International. When they followed men diagnosed with prostate cancer and those without, they found no association of prostate cancer with the number of sexual partners as the men reached their 30s, 40s, and 50s.

9. Sex Strengthens Pelvic Floor Muscles

For women, doing a few pelvic floor muscle exercises known as Kegels during sex offers a couple of benefits. You will enjoy more pleasure, and you'll also strengthen the area and help to minimize the risk of incontinence later in life.

10. Sex Helps You Sleep Better

The oxytocin released during orgasm also promotes sleep, according to research.

The male Menopause Does Exist

The male Menopause Does ExistThe male menopause does exist but it is rare, researchers have concluded. Just days after it was dismissed as a myth, the European team said the male menopause did exist but that it affects only 2% of middle-aged men.

Over 3,300 men from across Europe were assessed for the New England of Journal study. A men's health expert said testosterone therapy could be beneficial, but doctors had to be cautious about its use. Scientists led by a team from the University of Manchester looked at the testosterone levels of 3,369 men aged 40 to 79 from eight European centres.

The men were also asked about their sexual, physical and mental health. Three sexual symptoms - poor morning erection, low levels of sexual desire and erectile dysfunction were linked to low testosterone levels.

The condition, also called late-onset hypogonadism, was also found to be linked to poor health and obesity. Hypogonadism is a condition where the testes fail to work properly, affecting hormone levels.

Among the benefits of healthy loving in a relationship:

1. Sex Relieves Stress

A big health benefit of sex is lower blood pressure and overall stress reduction, according to researchers from Scotland who reported their findings in the journal Biological Psychology. They studied 24 women and 22 men who kept records of their sexual activity. Then the researchers subjected them to stressful situations -- such as speaking in public and doing verbal arithmetic -- and noted their blood pressure response to stress.

2. Sex Boosts Immunity

Good sexual health may mean better physical health. Having sex once or twice a week has been linked with higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A or IgA, which can protect you from getting colds and other infections. Scientists at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., took samples of saliva, which contain IgA, from 112 college students who reported the frequency of sex they had.

3. Sex Burns Calories

Thirty minutes of sex burns 85 calories or more. It may not sound like much, but it adds up: 42 half-hour sessions will burn 3,570 calories, more than enough to lose a pound. Doubling up, you could drop that pound in 21 hour-long sessions.

4. Sex Improves Cardiovascular Health

While some older folks may worry that the efforts expended during sex could cause a stroke, that's not so, according to researchers from England. In a study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, scientists found frequency of sex was not associated with stroke in the 914 men they followed for 20 years.

5. Sex Boosts Self-Esteem

Boosting self-esteem was one of 237 reasons people have sex, collected by University of Texas researchers and published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.

That finding makes sense to Gina Ogden, PhD, a sex therapist and marriage and family therapist in Cambridge, Mass., although she finds that those who already have self-esteem say they sometimes have sex to feel even better.

Time to have the sex talk with your teen

sex talk with your teenIt is important to give sex education as early as possible to your teen. Hesitation must be removed far away when talking about sexuality with your teen. You certainly do not want your kids getting wrong information about sexuality, right?

Parents can emphasis on the meaning of being a woman or a man, so that a girl can appreciate herself as a woman so does with the boy and each of them later can appreciate the opposite sex.

Parents have a central role in providing sexuality education for their teen. Father and mother should explain about sexuality as a team. Open discussion in front of their teen, both male and female, and this is one good approach to educate your children about sexuality.


The Male G-spot

We have learned that women have sensitive areas that will give more sensation when those spots are touched while lovemaking. Same with women, men also have G-Spot and here are two spots for extra pleasure. Touching these two spots can provide incredible sensation for men.

Where is it? Frenulum located on the underside of the penis. Dr. Patti Britton, sex coach from iVillage says that if this point is touched, it will create an incredible sensation.

This spot lies in between the testicles and anus. According to Dr. Patti Britton, touching this spot would provide extra pleasure for both parties (women also have perineum).

Our expert has also mentioned that touching the perineum during lovemaking, can provide longer pleasure before the ejaculation.
