Forget Your Daily Apple: You Should Be Having Sex!

They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but scientists have come forward to say that you might be able to ignore the apple and instead have sex. YES!

I expect most people will read that first section and go to their other halves saying “yeah science, bitch!” in a Jesse Pinkman-esque moment. Of course, that might not work… but it’s worth a shot, right?

Well, if you want to know the finer details, read on, as we take a look at why scientists believe that having sex daily is good for your health and relationship.

It makes you happier

This one seems to be a bit of a no brainer. Having sex (especially the good kind) makes you happier. In fact, you feel on top of the world when you’ve had it, even though you are usually lying in a sweaty heap on your back on a bed.

In fact, one blogger decided that she would make it her mission to have sex with her partner every day for a year. Dedicated? Yes. Exhausting? Yes to that too. At first she felt like it was just “another unnecessary stress in her life”, but then they got into a routine.

“It stopped being a chore, and became the moment of the day where I was most at peace,” she recently wrote in a blog. “Where I could have an actual conversation with my husband and know he was listening to me and not secretly watching television.”

If that isn’t enough of a good reason, the University of Texas conducted a study into the correlation between personal happiness and our sex lives. They found that the participants who had sex more regularly were actually a hell of a lot more confident about their bodies.

Sex keeps you healthy

We are not making this bit up – having sex once a day is actually hugely good for your health!

First of all, a study found that it increased your levels of immunoglobulin A (otherwise known as IgA), which is an antibody that can protect you from colds and even the flu. There was a huge gap between those who had regular sex and those who didn’t, with 30% higher levels of IgA!

It also helps you keep up your high levels of DHEA, which is the natural steroid known as “the anti-ageing hormone”. This not only keeps your body young, but it also keeps you fitter for longer.

If those weren’t big enough reasons to get it on, a Scottish study and a study conducted by the Brigham Young University in America discovered that regular and frequent sex helped people to cope better with stress AND helped to reduce your blood pressure.

Increases creativity

If you work in any of the many creative industries, this should definitely be for you. At the University of Newcastle, several psychologists found that the people with the most sex partners were artists.

What does that mean? I hear you ask. Well, at first it might not seem like it means anything, but in Psychology Today they took a look at if there was a correlation between creativity and sex.

In their study they gave participants scenarios to think about, and then had them perform a creative test.

They found that people who felt loving emotions were actually more creative, instead of those who instead thought of lust things like that. Basically, not only is sex fun, but it can also increase your levels of creativity.

Sex better than apples?

Basically, sex can cure many different things. Not only does it help you to live longer, but it also keeps you healthy and happy in the process. Result! But really, do we need all of these excuses to have sex? All of the studies that have come out lately have all talked about how amazing sex is for you, and the positive benefits that having regular sex can have on your life… so why aren’t people having regular sex?

Well, people’s schedules can play a huge part in it. If you work long hours and rarely get time to yourself, you might simply not have the energy to fuck your partner senseless… and if you have ever had someone fall asleep on you during sex you will know how awful it feels.

It could also be a lack of attraction and closeness between you and your partner. If you don’t spend enough time together, you could drift apart, which will make getting close difficult. You might also need to think about how good your sex life is. Make sure you spend time thinking about your partner’s needs instead of your own, and you are sure to have a long and happy sex life.

How often are you having sex? Are you at it once a day, once a week, or do you find yourself taking longer between those great sex sessions? Let us know by leaving a comment in the box below, or by heading to the Escort Scotland forum and posting your thoughts there.
